Star Pizza in Houston is yummy.
DaMarco Italian in Houston got a 29 out of 30 from the folks at Zagat.

When I lived in Dallas, I ate at Patrizio in Highland Village at least once a week. Their Chicken and Mushroom Lasagna is a little piece of heaven.

Actually, my favorite for Italian is Two Guys from Italy, located on Webb Chapel in Dallas. Also, Campisi's on Mockingbird, in Dallas.

Texas is not known for its Italian food.

But, Houston is the biggest and most diverse restaurant city here, so you will probably find something there and can ask on their board.

People say this a lot and I dont necesarily disagree, but what foods are available in the Houston area that would not be available in the Dallas area?

I'm quoting publications like Bon Appetit, Forbes travel and others, as well as foodies, who say so. They are better to ask details than me. But it makes sense the food would mirror the diverse/international population there.


PS - can any advice ever be given on this board without starting yet more Hou vs Dal banter? (honest statement, not aimed at any one poster.) I'm not from either city and this gets beyond tiresome.

Its an honest question. I genuinely want to know what kinds of food are available in the Houston area that arent in the Dallas area.

In my opinion, both are top notch in the food department. The only noticeable difference Ive found has to do with seafood.

Colichia's Italian village has absolutely some of the best recipes ever and their veal parmigiana is to die for. Located in SE Texas in Groves.
