Originally from Naples and Sicily, the Rossi family behind Impero Italiano brings a taste of Italy right here in Houston. From classic pasta dishes to mouthwatering pizzas and delectable cannolis, Impero Italiano is a celebration of traditional Italian cuisine. Not to mention, mementos of home fill the restaurant, creating an intimate and homey atmosphere. It’s the perfect casual lunch or dinner spot when you just want a delicious meal with good company!

We ordered the Arancini, Carpaccio Crudo, Impero 2 Pasta, Margherita Pizza, O’sole Mio (half pizza, half calzone), and Cannoli Siciliano, and we’d gladly order everything again. We also recommend completing the Italian summer vibe with an Aperol Spritz or Bellini too!

And if you’re not already sold, they’re also participating in HRWs with lunch starting at $25 and dinner starting at $39, so it’s a great time to go! Buon appetito!
