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.

Consistently good, traditional Italian food at reasonable prices. Pizzas and pasta are always satisfying. Service is attentive without being cloying.

well, this is an old New Orleans staple, been around since the late 50s, and still delivering top quality meals. Went with a group of 6 for lunch, and we were seated immediately (yes, make reservations). Orders were promptly taken, drinks, appetizers, salads, and entrees were delivered in good order and with enough time between that no one felt rushed.... More

Great food and great service! Our server Bashir was top notch. Dedpite us being a 19 top (with kids) he was professional and patient! Highly recommend. The pizza was yummy cheesiness. The Veal Marsala was to die for and the filet is tender, fresh and tasty. So good. Go now!

Our dining experience was worse than expected. Lousy service....never came back to check on us....waited a long time for our meal, considering the restaurant was half empty. Crab meat tasted like the frozen version.....had to send back my Veal Pontchartrain....panned veal was swimming in the sauce....fettuccine, tomato sauce and pasta had NO taste NO salt.....the bread was cold and stale....

We went to Venezia Restaurant on Carrollton Ave for the first time the other evening. We arrived a little before the dinner hour and were warmly greeted and immediately seated. Our waiter quickly approached the table, introduced himself and welcomed us to the restaurant. We ordered our beverages and settled in to review the menu. When our server returned to... More

This place is the absolute best Italian restaurant in New Orleans. They give you a ton of food that is better than anywhere else. Very affordable and a great value. You will love this place.

Let's keep it simple...just go here. Great food and you will not go wrong. Everything was great. It is right off the red (cemetery line) or the green (city park museum line). Once again...you will not be disappointed!
