I ate here hoping for a very authentic Italian meal. I was disappointed right from the get go, as my bread was stale. I ordered the seafood linguine for my meal. The linguine was clumpy, overcooked obviously and I had to spit out two of...More

Food quality was excellent and service too but prices too high for what you got. Consider thus only if you’re ok spending 20% more than you could elsewhere.

Stumbled across this place when we found our target restaurant "closed on Mondays." Imagine this -- an Italian-themed restaurant staffed by Italians. Great atmosphere. Really good food. Oh, by the way, the bread is outstanding. We will be back again.

Amazing authentic Italian food. We found it on TripAdvisor. Rated well. A family atmosphere or can be quiet for couples. My husband and I had the lasagna and I had the ricotta with spinach and sausage. Fabulous. I would recommend it

MASCALZONE RISTORANTE E PIZZERIA: HOUSTON'S NUMBER ONE DESTINATION FOR AUTHENTIC ITALIAN CUISINE. For more than 3 years, Houstonians have flocked to Mascalzone for its classic housemade pastas, its traditional-style pizzas, and its selection of homemade gelato and desserts, including its legendary Tiramisu. There's a reason why our Italian food is so good: WE ARE ITALIAN! We use only top ingredients imported directly from Italy, including Neapolitan flour for our pastas, house-baked breads, and pizza, and San Marzano tomatoes for our sauces. Our mission is to share the true Italian dining experience with our guests — the way we love to eat in Italy. Italian is spoken at Mascalzone!
