Aroma's of Italian cooking greet you as you enter this family friendly restaurant. I ordered the meatballs and spaghetti, garlic bread, and italian salad. The meatball was seasoned well and my mouth was watering in anticipation for the next bite. The sauce is slow cooked and wonderful and not overpowering the spaghetti and meatball. I only wish I had this... More

My favorite Italian restaurant in the New Orleans area. We took my family (11 total) for my older son's birthday lunch and the staff was very accommodating. The Italian salad is awesome and the fresh fish Cynthia is one the best dishes I have ever eaten. The fish is perfect and the dill sauce is incredible, get bread to soak... More

This is a classic New Orleans Italian restaurant that has maintained its quality over time. Right on the streetcar line makes it easy to get there too. We love their red gravy and had it again tonight. Stiffed shells in meat sauce & panneed veal with pasta. No room for dessert! Next time we go, we're going to try the... More

it isn't always possible to get a table here. And that's okay, because the pasta, salads and the pizza taste just as good at home. This place should really be higher rated. Then again they seem to do just fine as they are.

Excellent service...delicious food! Pizzas are unbelievably delicious as are the salads! Try one of their blue cheese lettuce wedges to complement your meal. Family members also enjoyed other entrees, but I always order the pizza. You cannot go wrong with any of their choices.

Reservations for 14 people at 5:30 on a Saturday evening. No problem. We were seated right away, as the dinner crowd was just beginning to arrive. Our orders were taken and appetizers soon arrived. It took a while for our entrees to arrive, due to 3 people had ordered stuffed lobster. It didn't matter, as we visited with each other,... More

This is a restaurant I have been going to since the early 80's and it's always a pleasure to go back. It's a fantastic family place that serves amazing Italian food and strong cocktails. I went there last night and it was spot on. The service was great. Juan was our server and he was very attentive to our requests.... More

We split the special salad with feta and strawberries and then the vegetarian pizza. Both were delicious. I wish they could tone down the lighting.
