This Italian restaurant was unknown and introduce to us by local friends. We couldn't have been more pleased with the menu, service and quality of food. The pricing was very reasonable. It deserves more publicity.

A limited menu and tight space for a large group but a wonderful arrage of tastes and smells. The complimentary bread with tomatoe is a terrific way to start the meal. The ceasar was fresh with a light flavor that didn't overwhelm. I got an 'off menu' eggplant parm and it was the best eggplant parm I have ever had... More

This is a great cozy spot nestled in the French Quarter not too far from Decatur street. This is classic NEW ORLEANS Italian with many of the classic dishes infused with Louisiana seafood and love. When you first go in they typically make you have an obligatory drink in the back room but that's ok because a friendly staff will... More

Tucked away on St. Phillip street stands a quiet beige building that around 4pm begins to emit a wonderful aroma of garlic. Irene's menu of Sicilian favorites mixed with New Orleans fare will tempt you, the satisfy that temptation. Try it all! Could be a wait but well worth it.
