Spend your money elsewhere. Customer service is horrible. We decided to dine in at this place and upon sitting down at the table, I could feel a negative vibe from the waiter. Just like other comments, Chris the waiter seemed tense and rude. Upon the...food arriving at the table, Chris the waiter blamed kitchen staff for missing ordered items and not having certain vegetables in the salad. Refills did not exist, since he blandly saw the empty glasses, but never refilled them. Worst experience I could think of. We advised the manager of the situation, but I assure you nothing happens to him. Eventually this place will fail just like other family business because of poor performance.More

This is one of my family's favorite restaurants. Only a couple of minutes from New Orleans, in the suburb of Metairie. Typical New Orleans neighborhood restaurant where the locals eat. Open for lunch & Dinner (Mon - Fri). My favorites: Spinach/shrimp bread, Onion Rings, Gumbo,...Mama G's pasta, Chicken Parmesan, Muffalatta, Roast Beef Po Boy (the BEST bread!), Fresh Cut French Fries. Honestly, we have never ordered anything we didn't fully enjoy.More

We stopped in foe dinner our last night in the area. It was my mother in law's first visit to the area. Hubby had an oyster po boy that he enjoyed a lot. We split and order of cheese fries with gravy...YUMMY! And MIL and...i split a half muffaletta and small roast beef po boy. She'd never had any of these treats before and loved them as much as we did! Highly recommend!More

I had to travel to New Orleans for work. And one of the guys knew about this family owned local place so we tried it and it was awesome. They have the best grilled chicken. Not sure how they cook it but it was the...most moist chicken I have ever had. Also for desert you have to try the Banana Foster Cheesecake. Really good. But you better come hungry.More

I come to this Italian neighborhood restaurant very frequently. I always get the chicken or eggplant parmesan for my entree. For dessert, I usually have the cannoli or chocolate mousse cake. The staff is amazing. All of the employees (Danielle, Chris, Tooty, Michel, Patty, Emily,...and Shannon) are friendly and cordial. So far, the restaurant hasn't disappointed me yet! FIVE STARS!More

You cannot go wrong at giorlando’s! We all remember them coming back right after Katrina as one of the first. We eat here once a week! The food is so good no matter what you order: Chicken Caesar, blackened chicken with pasta and eggplant parm...are phenomenal! Everyone is friendly, fast and efficient especially michelle. The owners are often there. (We even remember his uncle who owned Giorlando’s across from St Catherine of Siena). We cannot say enough good things. All kinds of great local food too!!!More
