"Great addition to the Upper Kirby scene. Great food with a flair in a relaxed setting with an eclectic wine list. The tune poke appetizer had large sashimi-quality slices rathervthan chunks with great toppings. Lamb taking was yummy and warm on a cool night."

For 31 years Damian's Cucina Italiana has been known worldwide as the top authentic Italian restaurant in Houston, Texas. Set in an old-world atmosphere which is elegant, yet warm and friendly, diners at Damian's are accustomed to extensive menu offerings, specially tailored dishes, and weekly specials created by Chef Napolean Palacios.

"As always Damian's has a cozy feel with a beautiful room that transmits a vibrancy without just being loud. Staff is attentive and the food is great--though this time every dish, from grilled fish to vegetables--was soaked in butter. It also is prices quite reasonably compared to restaurants attempting to do fine Italian in Houston, most of which miss the mark."

When Tastings started in 1990 it was the only fully integrated Wine Shop/ Wine Bar/ Restaurant on the East Coast. About twenty years later, there is still only a handful of establishments in the U.S. such as Tastings. Besides being an outstanding wine shop in its own right as well as a fine restaurant, Tastings offers a large selection of wines by the glass. Wines are offered in flights for experimentation with a meal for a modest fee over the retail price of wines in the shop. Tastings' restaurant serves simple, direct cuisine that allows each customer a gustatory and educational experience in a friendly but professional fine restaurant.

"Great bistro food in a wine store. Just stroll over and pick up your wine at store cost them have a fine, casual French meal. Don't let the location under a parking garage fool you: wonderful food, great wine and really friendly and helpful service."
