D'Amico's Italian Market Cafe Restaurant Review: Owner Nash D’Amico is part of a Houston Italian food family, along with cousins Tony and Damian Mandola. After running several restaurants for decades, he opened his Rice Village D'Amico's Italian Market Café as a casual, family-friendly-eatery-cum-market. Patrons pop in to pick up the imported cheeses, bottles of wines or fresh pasta and often return for a sit-down meal. Open seven days a week for lunch and dinner, the restaurant serves up good, basic Sicilian food. Kids have their own menu that includes pizza, but grown-up foodies go for the crab claw D’Amico (little claws swimming in a spicy lemon butter sauce), the gnocchi or the penne with grilled chicken and fresh asparagus. Gulf Coast seafood dishes are offered, too. There’s a limited beer and wine menu for the adults and a pretty decent tiramisu for dessert.
