We always eat Italian prior to our races(this time Houston Half) We ended up here twice on this visit..once for pizza and once for our traditional pasta (carb load). The restaurant is conveniently relocated in the downtown area close to many of the hotels close to the start of the race and we were satisfied with both our choices... ... read more

We had a lovely experience. Reservations were made through open table and everything was ready when we arrived. Our meal was delicious and timed perfectly. Our waiter, Louis was personable and attentive. I would definitely recommend.

This was fun, went for Christmas Eve had a blast and was pleasantly surprised to realize that they still have the polo poretti on the menu. Hate to tell you how long ago it was that I had that entree for the first time but it was in the '80s ... read more

This place was an absolute delight!! Went there for a date night. The food was amazing. They had a lounge singer, who in my opinion was quite cheesy 😅 but very entertaining. And sang some great songs as well. The decor is very old school Italian upscale. I absolutely loved it.

Upscale. Great food. Amazing staff. I went to this place before we went to jones hall to see the holiday pops. I would recommend making a reservation before coming in because it was a little busy but that just proves how good it is. Our server (her nails were gorgeous and holiday themed) was so nice and considerate. Totaly recommend ... read more

New Year's Eve
No longer residing in Houston, it has been years since we were here. Friends were the musical entertainment on New Year's Eve so w decided to overnight in Houston. The restaurant did not disappoint; still beautifully decorated for Christmas, the warmth of the place dissipates the size as it seems very cozy. Staff were excellent and t ... read more

The food was fine and is reasonably priced. And, the service is typically friendly and timely. This time around, though, we had two challenges. The waiter placed the wrong appetizer order (at least the one he did place was cheaper) and he needed to be reminded twice to get our wine order. For the latter issue, we were done eating bef ... read more

Eli was our server, and she was outstanding. She was so sweet and friendly and attended to us very well. All of the staff was courteous and friendly and made us feel welcome. The food was amazing and we can’t wait to go back! Our drinks from the bar were also outstanding. I can’t say enough great things about our visit.

I appreciated the enormous trouble the staff went to, to ensure that my dietary restrictions were catered to. That gives me confidence to want to return, and the food was delicious.

I am underwhelmed by Birraporetti's food and menu options. But it is a staple of downtown Houston and a tradition for my granddaughter and me as we make our way the one-block walk to the Wortham Center for The Nutcracker. The bar scene is a better option than the restaurant itself, with a most personable bar manager.

When I made this reservation I thought it would take longer to drive to the restaurant from the concert venue. We arrived almost 45 minutes early but the host was able to seat us after just a few minutes. He didn't have to do that, we were prepared to wait. The waiter was very helpful describing several of the dishes on the menu and ... read more
