I enjoyed eating at Birraporetti's very much! I will definitely be back to try more of their menu very soon.
We have been going to this restaurant for years prior to various theatre district performances and really have never been disappointed.
I would definitely come here again. We wanted to watch the Astros game so we decided to sit at the bar instead of a table. We really enjoyed talking with the bartender and it's always refreshing when you can tell they love their job and interacting with customers. I highly recommend the chicken alfredo pizza. It was bigger than I was expecting but it made the best leftovers. The bruschetta was perfect and the wine was flowing. They handled a couple large groups while we were there so you don't have to worry about your group size. There was a man playing guitar and singing and I think it improved the atmosphere.
Went out to celebrate my nieces birthday and she had a wonderful time. Service was amazing, the waitress went above and beyond. Food was fantastic. Will definitely be coming back
A relaxed Italian restaurant with great food and ambiance!!
My guest and I both ordered the night's special which was white fish and lobster ravioli. Our waiter said the fish was halibut, but upon receiving the dish, we both tasted the fish and knew it was not halibut but tilapia. The lobster was not lobster as it was very fishy. We often eat at Birraporetti's prior to our evenings at the Symphony or Opera and this is our first time experiencing such a sad meal. The waiter was very apologetic and the floor manager offered his apologies and gave us a 30% off coupon for our next visit; however, we would have preferred receiving the meal we ordered. Hopefully, our next visit will not have such issues.
Servers are really friendly, especialliy Felix Conway. Pasta is great too and good value for money.
Food and service were excellent. Only issue was a water leak dripping through the ceiling (not overly close to where we were eating). Be aware that the menu on their website is outdated...by three years according to our waiter.
Amazing food and amazing service!!!
This place was so good, Have eaten here for years and it’s been along time. The food was so good. Spinach Alfredo is the best.
Great food and very good prices. Easy to Park. The service is wonderful. The Bartender is very nice and helpful.
Beautiful birthday dinner in the middle of the week. Atmosphere is very quite without theatres currently open
The food was really fresh and very tasty. The service was fantastic. Our waiter and the bartender was incredibly friendly. The parking was easy.
I haven't been there in years and it was amazing to go back. The food was amazing, service was great and the atmosphere was simply the best with the great music in the background. I can't wait until your Sunday Brunch is back!!!
A great ambiance and great food an drink ! A must do !
We sat in the restaurant for an hour and the server kept serving other people before us. We did not even get served drinks and we had to get out own menus
This was a wonderful experience. I had Parmesan chicken with shrimp and sausage. The food was amazing. In addition we had a bottle of wine, it was Humberto Asti Muscato. The taste was so amazing that we bought a bottle of wine to go. Our server was Michael Williams.
Great service, ambiance and parking! Food was okay I had the crab cakes, they were flavorful, but the pasta was too greasy. Margarita was FANTASTIC!!!
Before the Symphony, had a nice dinner at Birraporetti's. The Veal Piccata special with the house Caesar was excellent. The staff wore masks and were very good about social distancing the tables. Thank you for a lovely meal.
This place is always our favorite! We travel an hour a couple times a year to eat here.
Birraporetti's always gets 5 stars in my book. I was disappointed by the limited wine list available and the menu seemed smaller. I know it is because of the health scare. Can't wait for that to be over so we can enjoy our fave restaurant again.
Large portions of excellent tasting Italian food. My Mom and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The Christmas decor was beautiful and tasteful.
Great food and great service! We look forward to going back.
The food wasn’t the best and only half of the staff wore a mask.
We came for the music at Cezanne’s (drinks, food, and service there was excellent and the music was memorable and AWESOME!), and we decided to go upstairs for dinner. Wonderful night!!!
That night at Cezanne’s downstairs, hosted by Woody Witt, we heard Houston’s incredible jazz guitarists, Mike Wheeler, Paul Chester, and Greg Petitto. AMAZING!
While the decor is dated and service was lacking, for a slow evening, the food made up for those pitfalls. Portions are usually healthy and filling.
Birraporetti’s is conveniently located downtown in the Theatre District. But, as always, they are indifferent about seating you. There were 4 of us & were seated at an awkward round table for 8 when there appeared to be tables of 4 available. And I had made a reservation! Then they are indifferent about serving you the food that you’ve ordered. Our food was hot & tasty. But we had to remind them to bring the drinks & appetizer that we had ordered.
Awful one waiter no ac in Restraunt a portable unit inside so staff aware it was awful bugs flying on food
We rsvp on open table no warning there was no ac
It took 30 minutes to get the check
Close this place down
All of the food was on point! Services was fine.
Birraporetti's is about the best place to catch a meal before the symphony, theater, or opera or a night cap after. The food is very good, reasonably priced, and served well. Like most restaurants in the Theater District, Birraporetti is struggling. Let's make this your place to dine in the Theater District so that its doors stay open and we all have a great place to dine before the show.
We were concerned that our server wore his mask below his nose. Since we are both retired nurses, we instructed him in the proper way of wearing a mask and explained the rationale behind masks in the midst of a pandemic. The server was very cooperative and appreciative.
It is one of my favorite Italian restaurants in Houston, Food and service is always great. It has a very nice atmosphere too. It is good for business meetings and romantic outings both.
If you are considering this place, please don’t. Food was mediocre, at best, and severely overpriced. The service was poor. There was no music or HVAC... the best part about our visit was leaving.
Sons birthday before he ships out for basic training. We normally go at Christmas but since he will be gone, we came early. Always great arrive and great meals.
Amazing and consistently wonderful food and service.
The Google maps times said restaurant was open until 11 pm... Open Table allowed us to make a 9:45 pm reservation, and we got there and the restaurant was closed!
We now live within walking distance. First time here. Good was excellent! The service was spectacular! Not busy butt we are early and the theater is closed. Great dining experience!
Such a lovely restaurant and heartbreaking experience with it being so empty but it was private, food was excellent and service as well
We have gone to Birraporetti’s for 40+ yrs... it is always delicious & great service! I hope Houstonians will patronize this Houston favorite.. as it serves our Theater District well and the Arts District is not opening back up until December/January!
Please support this restaurant & go there for your dining enjoyment. Our Downtown restaurants are not going to survive if we don’t go to them!! What a loss to our downtown area. It makes me very sad that we as a city don’t go downtown for dining!
Love this place. Clean, live music on Fridays. Very calm and not hectic. Food is always on point!
