We always stop here when flying in/out of NOLA. Hands down the best Italian. Our goto's are Chicken Parm, Blackened Chicken Alfredo and of course the gravy fries app. Service is always on point. Wish we could visit more often. Keep up the great work.

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

Our friend in Metarie were taking us out for lunch but the place was closed. I saw this seemingly tried and true place and said let's go. What a good improvisation. We wanted seafood and N. O. traditional instead of Italian. The fried seafood platter...was great butthe roast beef po boy was even better, The Muffelata (reccomended by the guy in the corner table) was, as he said better than Central Grocery. And the mashed potatoes were great too. Next time we'll try the Italian.More

OMG, the food at Giorlando's is divine. We had to drive down from Virginia, sadly to make funeral arrangements for my aunt. However, since our hotel was so near we ate there three nights in a row. We don't want to eat anywhere else. Then...one night, we could not get our big truck into a parking spot. We had to go someplace else. <sigh> We were in the area last year and ate there several nights in a row. There are so-called Italian restaurants here in VA, but believe me, THEY ARE NOT! There is nothing like New Orleans/Sicilian food. I think you should open a branch in VA! the atmosphere is great, lots of neighborhood folk come in and everyone knows everyone. Very friendly and homey!More

Consistently good Sicilian/New Orleans classics and seafood. The eggplant parm with angelhair pasta and grilled drum were well done and generous.

Very good home cooked food. Had fettuccine Alfredo with fried chicken breast. Very good flavor & lots of food. Had side of red gravy to mix with alfredo. Excellent! Fried eggplant with marinara sauce was also very good. Great service!
