Italian food, yeah, my preferred treat. Nice place to think about business. Will surely make a return trip. This place has a great atmosphere. I can see why they have so many great reviews.

I eat at Birraporetti"s before plays at the Alley Theater . Food is good and service usually very good. Last night however we had a waiter that must be relatively new. It wasn't a huge negative but the server brought my entree and salad at the same time. He needs to know that salad needs to come first so meal won't get cold.

Birraporetti’s is alway a treat! I was dining alone, and my server made me feel so welcome. I had the spinach fettuccine with mushrooms. It was the best fettuccine I have ever had… ever! The noodles were fresh and tender, and the sauce was smooth and flavorful. A great place to dine in the theater district either before or after any ... read more

We went to Birraporetti’s for a pre show meal. The service Earl provided was professional and courteous. We let him know what time the show started and he got us out in plenty of time. The food was great. The music created a nice ambiance. We will definitely go back!

A convenient stop before or after a show
Birraporetti's has a long history in Houston. This particular restaurant is conveniently located between the Wortham theater and the Alley, so it is ideally located about a block from parking, the opera or the theater. The restaurant is large, with plenty of seating. It also...More ... read more

Food was good. Nice place. Felt like it was a good value for what we paid. A bit slow service.

Helen was very attentive and patient when we couldn’t decide what to order. Came to our table several times to check to see if we needed anything. Food was excellent and perfectly portioned. We will definitely be returning for another pre-theater dinner.

Wonderful food and great service!!! Everything is always hot from the oven and the salads are cold and fresh!! We come for the awesome music on Mondays. We have to travel “a bit” to get here but it is always worth the trip!!

Super place, good food and drinks, fast service, especially if you ask and are going to an event, it can be wise to get reservations, it can be justfiably busy.

Delicious food and generous wine pours! If you are doing any of the downtown theaters or music, it can't be beat. The adjacent parking is easy and reasonable ($10 event price in a secured garage) with the restaurant right downstairs and venues within easy walks. The dark interior gives an elegant vibe. The food is always outstanding ... read more

The food was good & the restaurant is a pleasant place. We had lobster ravioli (tasty), pizza (marvelous), chicken picatta (good), & pork chops (excellent). The service was very slow & indifferent. It took us almost 15 minutes to find our waiter to get the check. That’s ridiculous. It’s also inexcusable as it was Friday night & the m ... read more

Lasagna used to be better. But the overall experience of going there before the symphony is still a winner.

Management very cognizant of its clientele. They encourage returning Opera/Theater goers by giving free parking passes for future visits.

We enjoyed our meal at Birraporetti's. It was one of the best meals I ever had. The salmon special with crab meat and lemon butter sauce was out of this world! I will definitely go again! Just make sure you make reservations!

The service was a touch slow, but not bad. The food was excellent and the convenience of being right next to the theater was great.

A great pre-theater option. Food is consistently good and they work to get you out in time for the theater.

Good Italian food located in Downtown Houston. Perfect place to eat before or after a show in one of the many theater's in the area. Birraporetti's is usually fast, but make a reservation to be sure you get in and out on time!
