Da Marco

1520 Westheimer Rd. Houston, TX 77006 | Montrose | 713-807-8857

Location Description:

You'll get the best pizza and pasta dishes in the city at this intimate and unassuming little Montrose upscale Italian restaurant. Some of Da Marco's unusual varieties of fish, such as the branzino (Italian sea bass) are jet-flown in from Italy. The wine list is just as innovative as the food, with lots of crisp Proseccos and unusual Piedmont reds. And the service is exceptional -- unless you ask for spaghetti and meatballs.
