Good food, great staff

Had the pizza, it was very good. Had the spaghetti and meatballs, it was okay. The staff was very polite and attentive. The place is a bit pricey but worth it.

Great home cooking. I think this is a local favorite, and for a weary tourist, the closest thing to home cooking on the road. Their eggplant with red gravy (marinara) and pasta was just right; and their not-fancy salad with just the right vinaigrette really hit the spot.

Andrea's has a wonderful old Italy ambience and fabulous food. The quality of the ingredients is excellent and the dishes are always perfectly prepared. On this visit, our server, Louie, was a delight. He was prompt without hovering, attentive and personable. We had a lovely meal.

If you want the freshest, top quality, authentic Northern Italian cuisine, look no further than Andrea's. They have always been consistent every time we visit and the hospitality is matchless. Last Friday we stopped in for an early dinner and were promptly seated in the lovely dining room graced with sculpture and paintings of Italy's gorgeous coasts and countryside. Our... More

We were taken to Andrea's by a friend who has lived in New Orleans for many years. Andrea's is located on a side street in the suburb of Metairie, and so is not the sort of place a visitor is likely to stumble upon. Andrea's specializes on Northern Italian food, but since the owner's grandmother was from island of Capri... More

I took three people to lunch today. We were all completely underwhelmed and won't return. I ordered a dozen char grilled oysters, but the waiter delivered a half dozen of the smallest oysters I have ever seen in my life. My steak was rare and I asked for medium. It was also only warm when it was delivered to the... More

I can only imagine what a splash this place made on the restaurant scene in New Orleans 30 years ago. Back then this blend of Italian and layered (read: cluttered) traditional NOLA cooking would have been fresh, exotic and unique. Now, as the surrounding culinary environment has become both more refined and defined, it is a good example of what... More

Sunday night's can be a challenge when seeking an exquisite dining experience, many of the well rated joints are closed. Andrea's was recommended by a well respected Chef as a place where I could find extraordinary Italian cuisine. The restaurant was quiet and elegant.
