Our first time, delightful restaurant. Will be back and hopefully we can catch the pianist next time. Thoroughly enjoyed our pasta dish and the rack of lamb was moist and delicious. Vino was good and it was a fun and relaxing evening.

One of the most precious gems in Houston dining. Every customer is shown the utmost value, respect, and appreciation, and the main reason I keep coming back for over 13 years. Typically, we enjoy lunch or dinner -- but this time, we had a rare opportunity to stop by for Sunday Brunch. Elegant, yet welcoming atmosphere. The food and beverages were spectacular. Our waitress was attentive, charming, and beautifully-skilled. The owner keeps a watchful eye on his kitchen, dining room, bar & each table and, is undeniably the absolute best to assure me, whether I am dining alone, bringing a family member, friend celebration, or business event, I will never-ever be disappointed.

This was our first time to eat here, but won't be the last! From the time we walked in the door we felt comfortable and welcomed. The wait staff were friendly and made sure we had everything we asked for. The food was exceptional and there were so many choices we can't wait to try more! The menu prices were very reasonable and the bar was very well stocked. The live piano music was lovely and very relaxing.

First social distancing was being followed...thank you. Went for lunch on HRW menu. This is one of my favorite restaurants on the west side. The service was excellent, as usual, and the restaurant was very nicely spaced. The French Onion soup was fantastic...I could have had more of that. The entrée I had that day was not to my liking. The server said it was one of the favorites on the menu. I will be back because it is unusual for me not to enjoy the food and service offered here.

This is a hidden gem on the west side. You must go in if you're looking for something in this area. Once inside, you'll feel as if you're in Amalfi Italy with the beautiful murals. The staff is very welcoming and friendly with nice table linens and occasional musician. Very diverse menu, classic favorites as well as new items. Great wine selection. Has a large bar area if you want to grab a burger and watch the game. The food is consistently fabulous especially the bread pudding. I'm not a brunch person but also hear the Sunday brunch is wonderful and very good value. Wish there were more restaurants like this one.

Excellent hidden gem! Gourmet dining in a relaxed, welcoming environment. Occasionally there is live piano music. The owner and staff are very professional and courteous.

Great variety of Mediterranean and other regional dishes. They offer a unique menu for broadening your horizons.

They also excel at curbside, especially the to-go beverages!

I’m a long-time customer and big fan of this restaurant!
