I'm happy to say I was not celebrating a "big" birthday this year but my extended family still showed me a very good time at Coppa Osteria , one of my favorite places in Houston for pizza, pasta and ros é wine. We went for an early Sunday dinner and enjoyed risotto balls, prosciutto, pizza and more. This casual Italian eatery in Rice Village makes everything from scratch and has great prices on their wine list. It is highly recommended as one of my top Houston restaurants. Casual, fun and delicious!
