Consistently excellent Italian cuisine making the most of Texan and Gulf Coast sources, Da Marco's always delivers an excellent dining experience. Easy to find on Westheimer with a clearly visible sign out front. Housed in an unassuming Montrose cottage with interior decor that looks like it has been around for decades, the food and attentive service are the star attractions.... More

When I tried to walk up to this establishment, I was attacked and harassed by the on duty "cop." He grabbed my arm and told me that I was not allowed on the property (even though I had a reservation) and continued to grab my arm pushing me outside of the gate. I ended up calling the police and canceling... More

The set lunch or a romantic dinner, you can not go wrong with either. One of the top restaurants in town with great food in cozy setting. Service from valet parking to your waiters is great. Not to be missed if you're visiting Houston and​ looking beyond steak for dinner.

What is with Houston and food? Earlier, I had the best chicken sandwich, and now pasta? Forget about it. We took an Uber to the restaurant. As we watched from the window of our taxi, the landscape changed from the downtown Professional scene to the tattoo parlor and bail bonds scene. I'm always up for an adventure, but this was... More

Wow. Just wow. This is an excellent restaurant. I call it the "truffle house." If you like truffles, and I do, then you will love it here. Try the back truffle pasta. To die for.

Were there last weekend with my wife to celebrate all the events we missed in the last 6 months. Had the truffles risotto and shared the grilled branzino fish. Had the sommelier choose our wine to match it with food we ordered. Great food, great wine, great atmosphere, great staff. It will always be our special event place to go.

Everything you expect from a romantic fine dining no snob experience! Vince and Nicolas are always friendly and approachable. Bonus point to Vince- always will recommend quality wine and good value. White truffles are my wife's favorite. I always order from the daily specials and must have desert- the best panacotta! If you are looking for great value, consistently great... More

My husband treated me to dinner here for our 37th wedding anniversary, our first-ever experience at Da Marco. From the valet and security guard, to the ambiance, food and wait service, it was an impeccable evening. We shared the shaved celery salad, ricotta raviolo with black truffle, and whole roasted branzino for two. Fresh, perfectly prepared from start to finish,... More

I've been to Italy a few times and am always on the lookout for a good italian restaurant that can come close to feeling like authentic italian food. I don't know what it is about italian food in Italy, but nothing I've experienced in the states usually comes close. Da Marco actually does, which is saying something! Plus all of... More
