Good food, but....

We went here for a quick early dinner. I have to say the food was very, very good but there are other issues that need some addressing. It was a very hot day, so we ordered a beer as soon as we got there, but they had none! The air conditioning was not on, door wide open with flies everywhere.... read more

I ordered meatballs and spaghetti over the weekend and the dish looked perfect when I first opened it up. I removed the two meatballs from the plate to cut them up and noticed that a yellowish oily liquid had pooled in the indentations the meatballs had left in the pasta. I pushed the spaghetti to one side to see where... More

Some of the worst pasta I have ever had. We ordered Chicken Alfredo and Manicotti. The Alfredo looked like chicken noodle soup and was inedible. The manicotti was worse than the cheapest frozen dinner. And to top it all off...the delivery boy was very rude.

We ordered, pizza, salads and wings. The pizza and salad were excellent. The wings were not noteworthy. The Italian salad came with a house made creamy Italian dressing which was very good. And the pizza crust was not too thick nor too thin, just right. The only down side was not having beer and wine available. However, we asked and... More

This small Italian eatery is located just off Magazine street in the lower, much lower Garden District. I was here with a group of 7 and we sampled the salads and pizza for the most part. The pizza for New Orleans was not terrible, but not particularly great either. The salads were at best ok. The service was disorganized and... More

I'll start by saying the menu has changed from the one posted on trip advisor. We had to change what we had planned to order. My husband and I split the spinach salad and then a medium combo pizza. We were completely satisfied! The servings were generous and very tasty. My husband even finished with the turtle cheesecake which he... More

Similar to other reviews, we ended up here simply by chance as we needed lunch and it was getting late. I agree that the restaurant lacks ambiance but what to you really expect from a pizza joint? Service was good and the pizza was really good.

You know how sometimes you're so hungry that you don't care where you eat, you just need to get some food right away? Well that's how we ended up at this restaurant. My husband and I each got a pasta dish that came with Caesar salad. The lettuce was still sopping wet from (I assume) being washed and there had... More

this is a quiet ambience, open late and all sorts of hours. The food is delicious, large portions, extremely good value. The bread is made on premises; the service is pleasant and efficient. This is the opposite of corporate food.
