The service here as incredible. It has been years since I have seen the chef come out of the kitchen and speak to tables - and he did here. To each table. The bruschetta was life changing. Very fresh tomatoes and garlic - best I've ever had. The pasta was cooked well, sauces we're lovely, everything was great. Our only... More

We live on the North Shore and make the trip across often This is one of our favorite places for special occasions. Went for my daughters birthday Sunday night - surprised how busy they were for Sunday. Party of five and everyone had something different. I had brocelloni which was so so but everyone else was very happy. Wife's chicken... More

Every time we travel to New Orleans we have dinner here. Chef Andrea is a wonderful man, who greets all his guest's. Service is always on point. The food is perfect and always fresh. Wish this place was closer to home.

I just had my first group meeting at the Andrea's this week. We needed a private room for our presentation. The process was wonderful. Ms. Kimberly helped me set this up. Everything was done by phone and email. Great accommodation for such meetings, fantastic food, great service, reasonable price. My speaker was happy, my boss was happy and my clients... More

We took a business dinner to Andreas in Metairie....never again. For starters, this place may have been good many years ago, but hasn't changed much...run down. Our waiter began taking our orders, but had to do it his way...had to start at a certain end of table and didn't deviate one bit from it. Ordered a few bottles of wine,... More

Let's face it, Andrea is charming and his food was once excellent, but this restaurant survives on reputation alone and it is no longer worth the effort of going. Our last debacle after years of private functions, lunches, brunches and dinners of increasing mediocrity was the absolute worst in the way of service. We decided late one afternoon to catch...

The wait was unbelievable. Fifteenth minutes for our waiter to come take our cocktail order another 10 minutes for our drinks to be at the table. THIRTY minutes before we were served our appetizer. Which was good, another one hour and twenty minutes and that was after someone asked how was our meal as I was on my way to... More

Always have a great time eating here. Andrea really makes you feel at home and the wait staff are very attentive. Atmosphere is inviting you to dine. The food is worth your wait Ordered the puppy drum and a very special Cauliflower to share and caramel custard for desert. .

We've been going here for years and for special occasions. Chef Andrea is a fabulous cook and we always enjoy our meals. My favorite is the veal cannelloni with the white and red sauce. I get it in the dinner portion each time. The turtle soup is also quite good as is the red snapper with the crab sauce. My... More

of service. Our waitstaff was very fun, accommodating and quick. Although it is not the best Italian restaurant, it is still good. Reminded me of so much of Italy...the warmth of the service makes the food taste really good. The ambiance is very much Italian. We were hungry and craving for pasta so it was good to have this around... More
