The recently built restaurant that replaced the original Carrabba’s on Kirby is expansive, attractive and noticeably very patron-friendly. Pizza-friendly too, as what might be Houston’s most impressive pizza oven is set not far from the entrance, fronted by its own counter-service pizza bar. With a dedicated pizzaiolo using dough made fresh daily, the large oven furiously burns logs in one corner to help cook the pizza with a desired quickness. The result features a delicious crust with a salty and slightly buttery taste that is both relatively light yet substantial. The pizzas are unfussy, accessible - if not terribly like those in Italy - but often terrific. Their margherita pizza, featuring quality mozzarella, juicy ripe tomato slices and fresh basil, is one of the most delicious in town.
