Food was GREAT! Murder Mystery Show was HILARIOUS!!! For the price to have the great food, free non-alcoholic drinks and an entertaining show you cannot go wrong. Some people cannot be made happy regardless of what you do for them. I will be back and will bring others with me. To the people that complained about 1 pass through th ... read more

This is one of favorite restaurants in Houston!!!!  Whenever we go to an event in the theater district, this is a must!!!  The stuffed mushrooms are to die for and the crab cakes are superb!!!  The brunch is the bomb.com; however, it's kind of pricey.  Therefore, if you're pinching pennies, this wouldn't be an option.  There is alway ... read more

Nice intimate ambiance and food. Service was a little slow, as they forgot to bring my salad (which was my entree) after they brought my date's pizza. However they were apologetic and brought it quickly after being reminded. Food and drinks tastes great. ... read more

We had dinner at Birra's prior to a show at the Wortham. Not only was the location convenient, the food was quite good and the service attentive, but not overbearing. The beef medallions were medium rare, as promised, and delicious; the sauteed spinach was very fresh and flavorful. The chocolate mousse was perhaps a bit overwhelmed b ... read more

My boyfriend and I are in town on vacation. We found a Groupon for a Murder Mystery Dinner. I can honestly say it was a good time. I love that they get the audience involved and how funny the show was. The food was okay. It was buffet style. There was a side salad, fettuccine alfredo, lasagna, chicken topped with cheese and mushrooms ... read more

Max and Ross orchestrated a fantastic eating experience for us before the show at the alley theater.  We both wanted a light dinner and Birraporetti's served a beautiful chicken salad and tortellini florentine soup - light and yummy!

I appreciated the enormous terrible 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.
Caroline Hackney via google.com - Jun 3, 2017
Everything is great at Birraporetti's! The Stuffed Mushrooms in Cream Sauce were decadent, and even a simple cheese pizza was perfect - Crisp crust, rich sauce and plenty of cheese which a slight baked crunch on the top.

Food is a pretty good. This is my second time getting take-out from this location (at the Friendswood location, I've dined-in twice), and the quality seems to be consistent. My only range of judgement consists of two visits during the middle of the week, so it appears that this location isnt very busy, but they probably get a majorit ... read more

Visited this place on a whim after a ballet at one of the theaters in the area. Great location to walk from the Wortham Theater by the way, very easy and quick walk. For my appetizer I decided to order their wedge salad, it was fresh and simple, could've been priced better ($10).For my Main course I tried the eggplant parmigiana that ... read more

Really great burgers here. I had one problem and it was resolved quickly. I live eating here and it a go to place of choice if you want a huge cooked however you want burger and fries. They are mostly an Italian food restraint but are not shy to just Italian food for those that prefer something different.

This is a very convenient place for after the theatre.  Food is good and drinks come fast.  It is exactly what you expect when you look at the menu.  Today we split the wedge salad and shared a medium pizza.  It was the perfect amount of food to still have room to enjoy a line pie.  The live music is quirky and fun.

Ryan, manager and Lauren, server, gave the very best in customer service. The Alfredo sauce, bar none, is the very best. Better than my homemade Alfredo, as my wife, Elizabeth mentioned, is worth killing or dying for. She made sure I understood that, I was threatened with my own life if I touched her leftovers. Great service, food, ... read more

Absolutely the best Alfredo sauce ever!  My husband & I used a Groupon to try this restaurant out.  The manager Ryan was so wonderful that other managers ought to take lessons from him.

Week two on our alphabet restaurant journey! We choose Birra Poretti's downtown. (Side note: We have found it is challenging finding a place we have not ate at already.) Jimmy had clams in a red sauce with pasta and for desert white & dark mousse cake, he really enjoyed it. I had, at bartenders suggestion, the pasta with chicken an ... read more

We had the Easter buffet.  It was tasty; however, it would be nice if they had small signs saying what each buffet container was.  Although I was able to guess many of the dishes, it would have been easier if one actually knew its contents.  Our waiter was attentive and polite.  Enjoyable time.Great entertainment too with Valerie Lee ... read more
