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

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.

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

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.

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.

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.
