Like Eating In Nonna's Kitchen. Only the best Italian restaurant food that I have ever eaten. The owner/chef Phil created dishes that are not on the menu simply per our personal request. If you find yourself in The Woodland's area, you can skip those pricey restaurants w/ the "foo-foo" servings & treat yourself to delectable plates at ridiculously reasonable prices.
bland. I asked for a caprese salad (it was not on the menu) and they said they could not make it!! The food tasted like it came out of a package.
i drove by the place yesterday and it appears to have gone out of business.. i drove by the place yesterday and it appears to have gone out of business. there is a sign for leasing out the building.
Editorial Review. Slow-cooked Italian pastas, sandwiches, pizzas, soups and salads rule the menu at this laidback, locally owned eatery.
Stick with the pastas.
I had been to Pallotta's several times before and wanted to try something different. Big mistake. The salmon was overcooked and very dry. The tomato basil soup should be renamed garlic-pepper soup, and I am not sure why they put the cold grated parmesan on the pasta.
My friends may want to go back but I am sure that I will stick with the pasta only.
The lasagna is amazing!. I'm telling you, just try the lasagna! I went Saturday evening with some others who had already visitied and it was a nice surprise. This restaurant is very clean and cozy. The staff is very professinal, too. We had 7 people in our party and still received our orders quickly. Two people got a pizza that was very good, too. We will be visiting again very soon.
User review by centerc. Palotta's is great and Jackie Tan (our waitress) is even better! She always greets us with a big smile and is very attentive. My husband and I would not dine there every Saturday night if the food was not as good as it is! We think they have the freshest salads in town. You need to try the 50-50 spaghetti dish(spicy). Try the baked ziti. Even their hamburger on a roll is good. Happy eating, centerc
Outstanding Service. We ordered the fried ravioli appetizer and it was wonderful...stuffed with jalepeno cream cheese and served with crunchy, buttery garlic bread...the servings were huge. I chose a red wine that I had discovered while visiting Rome, Italy....this was the first time I had seen it on a menu here in Houston...and I have dined at many upscale Italian eateries around the Houston area. The food, when served was perfect...salads crisp and cold, entrees steaming hot and not overcooked. "To Go" boxes were packed by our server in the kitchen and labled....packed with more fresh, hot garlic bread to take home. The homemade Raspberry Chocolate Mousse Tiramisu rivaled anything made in Italy. Perfect for sharing. The service was better than most of the upscale downtown and Galleria eateries... I would highly recommend Pallotta's...With wine and appetizer and entree's our tab came to about $80. Worth every penny....
My husband and I were introduced to Pallotta's when our realtor took us there to celebrate the closing of our new house! Which lucky for us, is only a couple of minutes away!
We chose to celebrate our 2nd wedding anniversary there recently. On a Monday night, we sat at a table in the bar, for a quieter, more intimate experiance. Our food, as usual was wonderful, their wine list is very good, and the staff is very attentive.
The prices are reasonable, the portions generous. Favs? The tomato basil soup, the pizza appetizers, and the turtle and blueberry cheescakes!
Enjoyable dining!. I really like Pallota's. The food is more zesty and much more satisfying that anything from the Olive Garden. Pallota's atmosphere is classy but not snooty - it has somewhat of a "preppy-casual" look. Overall, I think this is a wonderful place to dine - it helps that I live only a few minutes away, but I would be willing to drive across town to eat there.
