Pallotta's Italian Restaurant - voted "Best Italian Restaurant in The Woodlands" by area residents Eight Years consecutively and counting!
"Just when you thought it couldn't get any better, it did! The new "Weight Watchers" menu is wonderful and healthy. Whole wheat pasta, veggies... good stuff. We have tried a number of them (and there are plenty to choose from) and they have all been delicious. My favorite, so far, is the baked chicken parmigiana. Friendly, competent management; knowledgeable and cordial waitstaff; comfortable, welcoming atmosphere. We are so happy to have Pallotta's close by. Going again tonight!"
Food is absolutely fantastic, atmosphere is great, pricing is very fair, and the portions are way too large. This is a family owned restaurant and the owner is every where. Pallotta's is truly an excellent family style italian restaurant. It has turned out to be one of my favorite places to dine. We will be back again.
Always a hit with us and the portions are large enough to share. My two favorite dishes are Chef Larry Larson and Chicken all Pallotta, but tonight I tried the manicotti. It was delicious and a lighter filling than most restaurants serve. I highly recommend it. Of course, the minestrone soup is always fabulous!
The BEST Italian food we have ever eaten. We have been eating at Pallota's resturant for at least 10 years. Have eaten at all the usual Italian places, and Pallota's consistantly delivers the most delicious, freshest tasting, selections. It's the real deal. Try to find something as simple as garlic butter for your hot bread at other places and all you get is "Huh?" It's made fresh every day at Pallotta's! It's the only place we recommend for Italian food. Try it. You won't be disappointed.
Forget the chain Italian foods. Stop by Pallotta's and enjoy a "home-cooked" Italian meal. Generous portions, courteous wait staff and an owner who walks the floor to insure you are satisfied with the meal. The Minestrone soup is the best you will find in the area.
Best food and service in The Woodlands! You can certainly tell they put attention into every detail of not just the food, but the entire dining experience. Terrific wine and cocktial menu, the tomato basil soup is out of this world and the LaChacla bread is amazing. The entree portions are always so large that I end up with a really yummy leftover treat for lunch the next day. I would recommend this place to everyone who love good food at great prices.
The BEST Italian food we have ever eaten. We have been eating at Pallota's resturant for at least 9 years-We went after the 1st TEXANS game in 2002. I have also eaten at all the usual Italian places, and Pallota's consistantly delivers the most delicious, freshest tasting, selections. It's the real deal. The bread is made fresh every day at Pallotta's! It's the ONLY place we recommend for Italian food. Try it. You won't be disappointed. AND they DON'T FRY their Chicken Marsala which is MY FAVORITE!!!!!!!!! My hubby loves the 18th Admendment special off the menu meal!
Can't say enough terrific things about Pallotta's! Let's just start with the amazing food - all of the appetizers (I recommend the La-Chac-La bread), salads, breads and soups are so tasty and fresh. You have to try the tomato basil soup; it is in a league of its own! My favorite entrees are the Benjamin and the Number 84, but I have never tried anything I didn't love. The portions are huge and they have no problems with special requests. If it's at all possible, you have to save room for one of the yummy desserts.
The owners and staff are extremely friendly and welcoming and make sure you are taken care of. Best food in the Woodlands and believe me, if you do not live in the Woodlands, it's worth the drive! Parents don’t fear…It's also very kid friendly. Like I said at the beginning, can't say enough terrific things about Pallotta's!!
Pallotta's doesn't cut any corners on the food, and it really shows. Real cream, real butter - and real calories, too, but totally worth it. The "lighter" menu has some really creative dishes that will be easier on your waist, too, if you don't want to compromise.
You're greeted with a big basket of tasty sourdough rolls, but you'll be getting plenty of food, so don't fill up on the rolls. We had salads with our entrees, which were perfect as a small starter, and the salad dressing tasted homemade.
I tried the Chicken Lipari (off the "lighter" menu) and was very pleased with the perfectly cooked chicken covered with flavorful prosciutto. The orzo and summer vegetable side dish was a good way to round out the meal.
Service was very professional, crisp, and efficient. The dining room is elegant enough for a date, but you can also get by without dressing up. Prices are good considering the amount of food. Despite the polished setting, Pallottas is actually kid-friendly, even offering a "kids eat free" night.
This is a great local Italian place - check it out!
Excellent food and huge portions. Staff is very friendly. Usually sit at the bar area. Best Minestrone soup I have ever had. The La Chac La appetizer is amazing and the 53 1/2 is a wonderful dish.
Best Italian food anywhere outside of Italy and probably beats some of those. The food is absolutely amazing starting right off from the salad and their in house dressings. I always get the ranch and its just awesome...The meals are pretty good sized portions so go their hungry. The wait staff are really great and are always very easy to deal with and have the best attitudes. If you are looking for great Italian food or just a great place to go eat then this if definitely the place to go enjoy a great meal in a nice clean environment
Phil --- Just got your email re: your N'awlin's Special --- IN-CREDIBLE!! Perfecto! How creative--and I am sure it is as delicious as it looks in the email. The description alone had me drooling. My big regret is that we live at least a 7 hour drive to your place...from Thibodaux, La. So we can't make it there as often as we'd like. We had a great time seeing you and talking "chef talk" with you when we were in Houston just before New Years. The food, need I say, was awesome!!! Hope all continues to go well with you and the family --- and the "new eating life-style." We want you to be around cooking for a long, long time -- a sentiment I am sure that is shared by thousands of your customers, friends and famiglia!! Grazie di tutto! Ti siamo riconoscenti per aver...talento culinario !!!
Another wonderful compliment via email. Thanks for the thoughtful email Jill!
"My husband, children, and I come and go from Pallotta’s frequently and have never introduced ourselves, but I just want you to know how much we LOVE your restaurant. The service has always been amazing (seriously, your wait staff is in a completely different category than any other restaurant in TW), the food is hot, delicious, and well-priced, and the leftovers are just as yummy! When we are there, we feel like we’re part of your family, and whenever my parents visit from Oregon, Pallotta’s is the first place they ask to go. I recommend it to all of our neighbors, friends, etc."
Want really good Italian? Want fresh, simple, authentic Italian? Want to dine somewhere that when you’re there, you’re family? It’s not where they say it is on TV, it’s actually just across the road from all those chains. That’s right, it’s Pallotta’s. Pallotta’s (pronounced Pah-low-tahs) Italian Grill has been serving generous portions at reasonable prices in The Woodlands area since 1994.
