We're part of a small group that gets together for dinner each month at a different place. Though we'd been to Coco Pazzo for a New Year's Eve celebration, we'd never sampled the regular menu. We were not disappointed. Everyone enjoyed the entrees--most of us had seafood, and not a tiny morsel of our desserts was left. Had we been alone, we'd have been tempted to lick the plates!

This revamped restaurant continues in Chef Perrier's tradition of excellent food at fair prices. As I believe the only white table cloth restaurant in Missouri City it is a welcome relief from some of the noisier family spots. Quiet professional service and a reasonably priced wine selection. Not an easy to find location but definitely worth the drive.

Have been a number of times in the last month. Great food, wine and service. Waitstaff is very friendly and allows you to dine at your pace. Great value wine selection. Daily specials are always a surprise. They accommodate my wifes off the menu requests.

Best part is that it is a 5 minute drive from the house.

This place WAS one of the best kept secrets in Missouri City, TX! I say "was" because it is now a totally different restaurant. It's still called Coco Pazza, but the setup is totally different. The place is small, very quaint and calm. They used to have a "business" lunch for about $15... it consisted of an individual appetizer (pick from 2-3 choices), main entree (pick from 2-3 choices), and dessert. The food was great!! I don't mean just "great" - it tasted like gourmet fine dining! I've been there about 7-8- times and each time, the food is just as good as the first time. The servers were great, too!

Well, the owner decided to move this restaurant into Sugar Land, close to First Colony Mall last summer. I have not been to the new location (now called Aura) but my friend has. She said that the new location is just not the same as the original Coco Pazzo (food and atmosphere). The current Coco Pazzo (which they kept the same name in Missouri City) does not have a business lunch, but has lunch specials instead, which are just "blah", according to her.

My husband and I have always enjoyed our meals at Aura and were delighted to find out about the Italian food replacement. And as expected the food was delicious. Started with escargot! Not rubbery. Tasted fresh. Yum...then the chopped salad and caesar. The chopped was the best. Caesar needed some punch. maybe a little more garlic and an anchovy would help. It was just OK....We had the Veal Marsala as an entree. It tasted like it was freshly pounded milk fed veal! So so good and enjoyed with the chef's recommendation for our wine called "Saved". That too was excellent . And for $42 what a steal. Really all wines were very inexpensive which is nice to see. We will be going back. John was our waiter and our service was the best. They always came to check that all was good with us. And it was thanks to their service....
