The outside is unassuming and the inside of the grocery store (it really is a little grocery store with a deli) looks like it hasn't been changed in many, many years. You don't really go there for the groceries though, you go for the amazing muffuletta! I had been reluctant to try the sandwich because of the olive spread (I... More

Its a nice deli but always busy and can be more expensive for a muffalettea I think given the location.

Waited all weekend for their muffaletta. The olive spread is to die for....if you love olives. I wasn't disappointed.

This is not a sit down restaurant. You get in line and order either a half or a whole. Its a simple concept and the mufallata is worth the price. Very limited seating inside, so take it to go! Staff is very much about keeping the lines moving, so they may seem pushy. Recommend trying this place to develop your... More

This is an Italian market - not a restaurant so be prepared to eat on the run or at a small counter in the back. The muffaletta is legit - as good as it gets. Line can get long. We were there at 1:30 and only had to wait for 2 other patrons before being able to place our order.

This is a fantastic Italian market. Upon entering, the smells are to die for and the choices are plentiful. Pastas, meats, cheeses, EVOOs, you name it. Keep in mind, the line for the deli can be a bit long but it is definitely worth it and the line tends to move at a decent pace. If you're in New Orleans,... More

We were here 10 years ago and like then it is still the best. Home of the Muffaleta. Simply the best one in town and a MUST if visiting here.

My friend and I stopped to have a sandwich here which was delicious. Order the Cajun Grippos to accompany your muffaletta. The guys behind the counter look irritated to have so many tourists in their grocery. But I enjoyed the authentic atmosphere just the same.
