The lasagna is out-of-this-world! This Mid-City Italian (Sicilian) restaurant has been around since the 1950s. Traditional recipes keep them busy. Reservations are a necessity on the weekend; they're closed on Mon. & Tues.

Have been told many great things about it and had many recommend this place. We were not disappointed. Atmosphere is great, service is awesome and food was amazing (portion and quality). Menu size is quite impressive. I am very picky and hard time choosing between 5 items. Says alot about a place that is packed 20 minutes after they opened.... More

Our friends live in NOLA and wanted to take us to dinner. They have enjoyed this place in the past. We had reservations. Arrived early and still were not seated until 40 minutes past our reservation time. Apparently typical. Once seated, they are too busy to provide good service and all they want to do is turn the table. Could... More

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.
