Find the small places in the burbs and you will be rewarded. That's what we did. Nice, small, and cozy and the food was excellent. The service was very good. We had plenty of food and the meatballs and the Italian sausage were really tasty. But it's the place,too! We didn't sing O Sole Mio, but we did think about... More

Take a cab here or get friends to drive you here because it is well worth it. All the dishes on this menu are great. My personal favorites are the Veal Saltimbocca, Pesce Siciliano and the Eggplant Parmesan with some Italian Sausage on the side. Very Romantic place and a good place to get a real feel for local New... More

The owner of Fausto's is FAUSTO and he is PURELY Italian! He has authentic recipes from his native Sicily. Every dish is prepared from SCRATCH! The ambiance is very romantic and candlelit. On Valentine's Day and other special holidays, there is a rose on each table. Fausto's is an unbelievably excellent choice for lunch or dinner!

Top notch in every way. The food, the staff, and the comfortable atmosphere make this place a favorite of mine. The sauces are awesome.

This restaurant serves very good Italian food at fair prices. Probably for that very same reason, there is usually a wait for a table in the tiny, crowded, very loud dining room. Service is inconsistent. Wine prices are excessive. I would rate this place four out of five for its food but I can only give it a two or... More

What a great find this place was. We had been having trouble getting into downtown restaurants without a two hour wait and we were seated immediately. It is obviously a local favorite and now we know why. The gumbo food was delicious and the service prompt and friendly.

So, it is actually pretty difficult to find a decent Italian restaurant outside of New Orleans. However, after the first visit to Fausto's we knew that we didn't need to look any further. It is a good idea to make a reservation, as the space is tiny. Once you are seated at a table, there is no rush for you... More

My husband and I love to go here for date night. Delicious food and great atmosphere! Location is also easy to find as it is right on Veterans Hwy.

There are several good or great Italian restaurants in Metairie, but this is the best. Love the veal saltimbocca. Great specials when available include softshell crab with crawfish pasta and linguini with clams.
