Snapper Arrabbiata (Angry Snapper) and St. Charles Crab Cakes are to die for. We started with Fried Calamari. Appetizer platter served us all. The birthday twins had Crab Stuffed Shrimp and loved it! Every entree, appetizer, salad, soup and dessert was made to perfection. Best service and atmosphere ever. Make a reservation and enjoy the best, freshest Italian in Texas!

I met a friend for dinner on a Friday at 5pm. The dining area was already full with a wait list, or you could sit outside. We chose the porch which left something to be desired. The cushions and tablecloths are old and very dirty (grey/black), as well as it was very loud with road noise and train noise. With... More

Don't let the size fool you, there's plenty of room inside. Walk into a little piece of Italy, the decor, the music, the wine, and of course the food!! I love the crab cakes, the Mozzarella appetizer, and the angry snapper, or angry flounder. The fish is always fresh, the crab cakes are full of crab and have a nice... More

This is an excellent place to take your wife for an evening out, without the kids. Good margaritas and cold shiner with a frozen mug. The chicken carbonate with Alfredo noodles was excellent. Also the chocolate on chocolate cake was moist and delicious. Candle lit tables and a semi casual dining experience was perfect. They also have an enclosed patio... More

The food and staff here are the best. It is a very small place and sometimes hard to get reservations but very worth it. The crab cakes St Charles are soooo yummy. I have to say I have never eaten anything here that I didn't like. The only issue I have ever had is that it is a very small... More

I've had great Italian in Houston and in NYC -- which, btw, is where Giovanni's original is located. Who knew that in this little town outside of Houston would have THE BEST Italian ANYTHING!! People come from miles to eat here - reservations ARE best - days and sometimes weeks in advance depending upon the season - holidays -- well,... More

Be prepared for generous portions of great food! Opens at 4:00 p.m. And if you arrive when they first open, no reservation is required so either show up early or make sure you have made a reservation if you decide you want to go later in the evening! Wait staff is very friendly and will take care of anything you... More

You must make reservations at this place, even with reservations we still had to wait but it was well worth it. Husband and I went with another coupke6. We all ordered something different and every one loved their meal. The portion s were huge and we had plenty of levtovers.
