Bushwackers to Frenchaletta this is a wonderful local restaurant and bar. We went for a late lunch and thoroughly enjoyed our meals. The roast beef poboy was the best we've had.

It was a busy Friday night, but our group of 11 was still able to walk right in and have a great meal. I enjoyed the red beans and rice and sausage supper. Onion rings were perfect. Staff was very friendly and the food was delicious.

This place happened to be close to our house. They have basic Italian and southern food (fried catfish, spaghetti in red sauce, etc), nothing too fancy. Everyone was satisfied with their food and the waitress was nice. Six of us ordered a gallon of the Bush Whacker drink. It was a cream based coffee liqueur flavored drink. One gallon was... More

The owners seem to be very nice and do their best to serve decent meals. That being said, if I were only going to eat at 100 restaurants in NOLA, This one wouldn't be on my list.

I love muffalatta sandwiches. I was cautious about the hype and the french bread. Seriously it was not only the best one I've ever eaten, but quite possibly the best sandwich of any kind I've ever eaten anywhere. Granted the olive salad is an acquired taste, but if you like muffalattas, try this one and if you have never had... More

For the last 10 yrs, I have been slowly checking out well known fine dining, casual, and dive New Orleans restaurants off my list. Liuzza's was one that I have anxiously waiting to get to based on online reviews. Three of us ordered a variety of the "favorites" based on the reviews such as the infamous debris roast beef poboy,... More

If you're looking for simple, well prepared, and inexpensive food, then Liussa's is for you. In business since 1947, the place is small, tables close together, and cash only, but the great Creole-Italian dishes make it well worth.it. This is a true New Orleans neighborhood family owned Italian restaurant. This type of restaurant is becoming harder and harder to find.

As frequent visitors to Mid-City, we love walking to neighbourhood places at night. Our most recent stroll to Liuzza's was well worth the chilly walk, as the red beans with rice was absolutely superb that night. The eggplant and crab specials were very fine, crisp where they should have been crisp and melting just where that was called for. Quantities... More
