Don't be fooled by the houselike modest exterior; as soon as you step inside you will be transported to a wonderful Sicilian experience. The atmosphere is welcoming, intimate, even romantic if that is your objective. The waiter was authentic to the theme, extremely friendly and provided helpful advice on menu items (there is a very extensive menu). The food was excellent and most entrees come with a salad and a side dish of pasta with a superb bolognese sauce. For dessert, the rum cake was fantastic. There is a nice selection of relatively inexpensive wines. With one or more friends, you can spend the evening enjoying the food and atmosphere feeling a full continent away from the chain restaurant experience.

First, this restaurant is in an old house. Each dining room is a small area that only holds a handful of tables. I originally started coming here in the 70's and was pleasantly surprised to see them still going strong last week. I was returning from the medical center, saw the restaurant and told my wife we needed to try it.
What a treat! Fantastic food and great service in a unique atmosphere. Truly an independent restaurant with the feel of being invited into the home of your Italian grandmother.

This little house of a restaurant has been in Houston since the 70s, and still has the BEST authentic Sicilian/Italian food.

It's a really quirky place but that adds to the atmosphere in my opinion.

Come hungry and come with plenty of time. This is not a place where they rush you.

While in Houston, I wanted to try something other than Mexican, Seafood, or BBQ. I found this little gem within walking distance from the medical center. The price, portion size, and service were all exceptional. I will definitely be back!
