If for nothing but sentimental reasons, this is one of my favourite restaurants in Houston. Good food, great bar, open late.An icon and an institution.

Friend and I came here for lunch after taking a business seminar class downtown. Don't know if we got here right before the lunch crowd or just after but we were about one of four or five other couples in the restaurant eating. The atmosphere was nice and quiet and seemed like it would be a great place for a date night. Food was real ... read more

Came here for the first time and really enjoyed it. We came late but our waitress was still very nice and courteous. The food was good and the prices weren't outrageous for an Italian place in downtown Houston. I had one of their pizzas, which was really good. My wife and I also had the creme brulee, which was delicious. I would defi ... read more

We went here for the time before a show at the Hobby Center and were so surprised! We picked it because it was close to the theater and we didn't want anything super fancy. The food was delicious and were impressed with the portions for the price. The service was a tad slow, but we didn't really mind too much. We'll definitely come b ... read more

This is our reliable choice of a restaurant when we're in downtown Houston. The food is reliably excellent and the service is reliably professional. It is our number one choice when we go to the theater. The Caesar salad was fresh and crisp. My manicotti was cooked perfectly and served hot. Then out the back door and a few steps to o ... read more

Pre theatre meal
Before the alley theatre we stopped in for a bite on a Sunday at 6pm. Packed with pre and post theatre people. Tip 1 : pre book if you want a nice table. We had chicken parm (ginormous easily serves 2) with mashed potato. Great...More ... read more

We chose Birraporetti's before a show in the theater district. We had reservations and upon arrival were immediately overwhelmed by the amount of people waiting to be seated. Apparently we were not the only ones with the same idea! Although, according to the restaurant, it was their busiest day in 8 months all wait staff were very ki ... read more

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

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
