What do Houstonians and Italians have in common? A love for good food. One Italian in particular, Vittorio Pretoroti of Perbacco, has all of Houston excited about trying his unique Italian dishes. Serving affordable and authentic pastas and seafood dishes Downtown, Perbacco has customers raving about his seafood ravioli, gnocchi, salmon and linguini.

Preteroti and his staff are also experts at providing wonderful service. Located across the street from Jones Hall, this cozy restaurant offers the perfect spot for a casual lunch or  pre-performance dinner. Just don’t get too carried away with Vito’s extensive wine list, or you might just miss your show.

If you have time, order the cappuccino—it's absolutely heavenly.
