A trip to Italy is definitely in my bucket list for so many reasons, and of course, one of which is because of their food. Located in the tony neighborhood Rice Village  is a cozy restaurant that will teleport you to Southern Italy. While I personally have not been in Italy, visiting this place will instantly take your senses away from Houston, and closer to Italy.  Sud Italia Ristorante offers traditional dishes from Southern Italy with focus on seafood, but you can definitely substitute for Chicken or other if desired.

This restaurant is just around Rice Village shopping center so you’ll definitely find something to do to burn some calories after a good meal at Sud Italia, and if you’re just traveling to Houston, Rice University is just around the corner, and take some photos in the middle of century-aged oak trees.
