D'Amico's Italian Market Cafe

5510 Morningside Houston, TX 77005 | Kirby-West U | 713-526-3400

Location Description:

This longtime Village favorite is a typical red-and-white-checkered tablecloth place with the air of a traditional trattoria, serving home-style Sicilian food. Their red sauce is a standby, and daily steam-table specials are the best deals going. Muffulettas and poor boys can be found on the menu next to a wide variety of pastas and chicken and veal dishes. There's also a marketplace of Italian goods where you can pick up all the ingredients for an Italian meal at home. Homemade desserts include cannoli and tiramisu.
