The ribeye was average with not much flavor. The spaghetti and meats were average. The meat balls had a lot of filler and fried. The salad consisted of lettuce, shaved parmesan and a few croutons.

They have lots of different options on their menu and does a great lunch special. You can get a sandwich, salad and soup for only $11. The ambiance looks like the perfect place for brunch. The service was ok, no one really smiled.

This was great. I had a spicy tilapia pasta dish, added the shrimp. It was so good. Caesar salad was good too.

This review is of the restaurant in Hammond - not sure if there is another in New Orleans. We wouldn't have found this place unless we were driving through the outlet shopping center. We were starved and didn't want fast food, so we ran across...More
