Here's what's good about it: Ambiance: looks and feels like a neighborhood diner, warm and where everyone knows your name. Food: Old style Italian, wonderfully fresh pasta, fabulous fish dishes, hot garlic bread, house made bread sticks, house made Italian desserts. Wine: Always a... More

I see that I haven't reviewed Corelli's in more than 2 1/2 years, and, truthfully, haven't eaten there as often as I once did. The food is still very, very tasty, consistent and reasonably priced tho' I wouldn't call it a bargain, but it's fair. Compared to the chains, Corelli's is a bit more homey and less contemporary/attempted chic, but... More

I always go there during lunchtime. My favorite is the pizza! Very nice size for lunch and the staff is friendly. Wine is also good. Don't forget to try the pasta e fagioli soup.

I would classify this place as a typical Italian restaurant with average food but great service. Its close to Galleria and is a good choice to eat here vs in the Galleria which is over priced. Parking is easy too.

Great food. Always get the chicken corellis. You can't go wrong. Food is fresh and locals come here. You can bring your own wine. Not sure if there is a corking fee. Some desserts are homemade. Be sure to ask.

Our family of 2 adults and 2 teen boys were reasonably satisfied, but it just wasn't quite worth the high price. My husband ordered the Spaghetti with meat sauce, meatballs and Italian sausage ($14.99), and he was the only one of us that really enjoyed his meal. One son ordered Salmon Florentine ($18.95) and he said "meh"! Younger son ordered... More

Within walking distance of my home, Corelli's on Westheimer is definitely a family favorite. This quaint BYOB restaurant, located in an older strip center, is always filled with local office workers at lunch and neighborhood families each evening. It's one of those rare places where the waiters remember the table you like and whether you want your iced tea topped... More

Living in Houston for 20 years, I had never visited Corelli's before. The place is cozy with traditional red and white checkered tablecloth. The menu is heavy on pasta but the selections are well varied with shrimp and chicken available on most dishes. Our server apologized for "not seeing" us but honestly, we were not even seated 2 minutes when... More
