Arcodoro ranks as one of the all time WORST dining experiences I've ever had in Houston. The food is marginal, the service was beyond deplorable.. just horrible. The staff - across the board - has a surly condescending attitude and it ruined the experience. Marketing...More

Friends in Houston took us to this restaurant. It was an absolutely incredible experience. The food was exceptional and the service was perfect. Our server was knowledgeable and attentive without being intrusive. The atmosphere and presentation of the meal made for a delightful evening.

Been here several times. Not your typical Italian. If your looking for spaghetti with meatballs or pizza you'd better go elsewhere. Upscale restaurant across from the Galleria. The fish in rock salt is superb. Good place for business lunch.

this is truly patio season and eating salt encrusted fish is the way to go! Check out our brunch menu. It is a great place to enjoy a prosecco and relax during this holiday weekend. Best the staff and management of Arcodoro

There is a reason why Arcodoro is being in Houston for so many years. Service is good, the food is consistently tatsy. The only minor negative, the inside decor needs an update.
