I always go there during lunchtime. My favorite is the pizza! Very nice size for lunch and the staff is friendly. Wine is also good. Don't forget to try the pasta e fagioli soup.

I would classify this place as a typical Italian restaurant with average food but great service. Its close to Galleria and is a good choice to eat here vs in the Galleria which is over priced. Parking is easy too.

Great food. Always get the chicken corellis. You can't go wrong. Food is fresh and locals come here. You can bring your own wine. Not sure if there is a corking fee. Some desserts are homemade. Be sure to ask.

Our family of 2 adults and 2 teen boys were reasonably satisfied, but it just wasn't quite worth the high price. My husband ordered the Spaghetti with meat sauce, meatballs and Italian sausage ($14.99), and he was the only one of us that really enjoyed his meal. One son ordered Salmon Florentine ($18.95) and he said "meh"! Younger son ordered... More

Within walking distance of my home, Corelli's on Westheimer is definitely a family favorite. This quaint BYOB restaurant, located in an older strip center, is always filled with local office workers at lunch and neighborhood families each evening. It's one of those rare places where the waiters remember the table you like and whether you want your iced tea topped... More

I met a few friends here for dinner recently. Immediately upon entering I noticed the tables seemed tightly packed into the small quaint restaurant. The service was very prompt, courteous, and attentive. I being a fairly picky eater ordered the build your own pizza. Generally I've learned the pizza in places like that are lacking the same devotion given to... More

Living in Houston for 20 years, I had never visited Corelli's before. The place is cozy with traditional red and white checkered tablecloth. The menu is heavy on pasta but the selections are well varied with shrimp and chicken available on most dishes. Our server apologized for "not seeing" us but honestly, we were not even seated 2 minutes when... More

I used to be a given that their sauces and pastas were exceptionally good. unfortunately, we noticed in our last three visits that their flavor and quality has come down dramatically... Their Insalata caprese has also shrunk to a much smaller portion with less ingredients..... Someone needs to get their kitchen back up to standards. Service is still good and... More

I has the Salmon which was fine. I asked for it to be accompanied with a pasta (spaghetti) and sadly it tasted like it came from a can. Disappointing as they got the easy bit wrong. The service was fine and the other food at the table looked good but in my opinion stay away from the spaghetti.

Comfortable, small, great service, byow or wine menu, friendly. Close to the Galleria area, in a strip center - Westheimer at Chimney Rock. Best Suga Rosa sauce! Wish they sold their House Salad Dressing! Good on all the basics - meatballs, parmesans (eggplant, chicken, veal), scallopine, meat sauce....and good seafood. whole wheat pasta available. Our go-to place.
