This is undoubtedly one of the city's finest and most authentic Italian restaurants. Damian's feels like a little piece of Tuscany right here in Midtown Houston. This white tablecloth, fine-dining restaurant has long-term, knowledgeable waiters. The cold antipasto misto plate is always worth trying. Fresh pasta dishes abound, and whether it's a simple spaghetti Bolognese or a more complex tortellini alla panna, they never disappoint. The osso buco is timeless and the veal chop enough for two. Try the traditional rosemary roasted potatoes with any dish. The dessert cart never fails to impress.
