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.

Beautifully decorated for the holidays. Service was great. Not crowded. Food was delicious and on point. I advise that you ask about options before ordering the assorted cheese cakes. The Manager and our waiter Michael were so nice. Thanks for a memorable evening!

This review is for online ordering.  In a word, awesome!  Easy to navigate, easy to schedule an order for pickup the next day.  Drove up at the time my order was supposed to be ready, called from the car, and it was ready, all bagged up, brought out to me safely (yes he wore a mask!).
 Now, I order to pick up from restaurants a l

Staff is always very friendly. Beer selection is not the greatest. Beer not cold enough for my preference. Nice atmosphere.

Beautiful atmosphere, delicious food, great service. The tres leches was probably the best I've ever had anywhere.
Amy Gillock via - Nov 22, 2020
Not sure if they are still doing it, but the brunch buffet is the best in Houston, IMHO. The staff are wonderful!

Love this place. We came in kind of late. It was close to closing time. Our waitress made sure the whole menu was available. She gave very friendly & courteous service. I wld be remiss if I didn't mention the waiter, e/ the beautiful voice who sang as he finished his own work and brouhhyr a refill on my drink. The food was delicious.

Local Gem
I would highly recommend Birraporetti’s to anyone visiting Downtown for sports/theater. My wife and I enjoyed the “classical jazz-club vibe” to the restaurant and the food was of the same quality of the traditional Italian-American plates that you would find at the top spots in...New York and Boston. The spinach fettuccine and chicke ... read more

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 ... read more

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 ope ... read more

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.

This was by far one of the best Italian restaurants that I have dined at in Houston. Ask for BJ. Not only is he a GREAT waiter but he gave us the best recommendations on the menu. The lemon pepper chicken, the eggplant parmesan and the burgers were amazing. The garlic toast and pizza are also on point. The drinks are the perfect flav ... read more

Felix was fantastic! My table was amazing! I felt like I was in the movie Scarface (lol) the way my table was positioned. Great place to go if your looking for Ambience. We’ll be back for one of Felix secret drinks.

If you like being downtown this is where to go. Even though it was raining & dreary the staff was cheerful & helpful! In this day & age with their tips & work schedules being cut it was a nice surprise to see the personalities that surfaced! Food was good! Job well done!!

Great desserts, great variety of wines but expected more from entrees. I would still recommend.

Most recent visit made up for several "not so good" visits. So, I will leave the bad review off. Our most recent visit was after Matinee Ballet on Sunday. We were hosting a gathering to enjoy time with our Ballerina! We had very close friends and much family in attendance. (My sisters did not want to return to Birraporetti's..

Highly recommend! Hubby and I went in for dinner tonight and everything was perfect. The ambiance was very lovely and our food and drinks were delicious. We started off with the calamari (ask for some lemon wedges) and garlic bread (only place I've been where both sides were paid attention to).
I had the almond encrusted chicken s

we were eating before our Alley Theather play and the waiter was very accommodating. The pizza we ordered was very good , white others had a variety of meals which there were no complaints.
Peachy via - Mar 11, 2020
The food and service was outstanding the only thing I have a concern on is the parking as I had people that could not make the trek to the theater district we had to park and walk about six blocks so just be aware of parking.

We were there for dinner before a Hobby Center event. Good experience as always. Been in Houston 32 yrs.

We always go to Birraporetti's before going to the Alley Theatre. It never fails to give us a good meal in a lovely atmosphere; and still we're in time for the show.
