Do not search for Italian food at D'Amico. Even the names on the menu are spelled wrong, I don't know how they can claim it to be an Italian restaurant. This is the typical place where you can have American food surrounded by Italian stereotypes....More

The food takes eons here and it not worth the wait. It is mediocre at best. I don't know how people can write positive reviews. The server was nice but had too many tables. I don't know where I've had worse Italian food in Houston.
