We enjoyed our dinner here very much, especially certain dishes. The fried calamari with spicy sauce was the best calamari I've ever tasted. Chocolate budino dessert also excellent, likewise squash parmesan. The fish almondine with potato galette was delicious but suffered from a common fault:...More

Uptown / Carrollton
Very much their own self sufficient unit within the
greater metro area, Uptown and Carrollton tone down
the urban edge with a friendly attitude and collegiate
feel. Home to Tulane and Loyola Universities, all the
students living in the area ensure that Uptown and
Carrollton stay youthful, cosmopolitan and vibrantly
