This location is on the back side of a mall, right next to a movie theater. Parking on a Saturday evening can be challenging.
My review:
Food was tasty and well prepared.
Portions are too big, should offer half portions.
The wine selection was decent, not great.
The house dressing was tasty.
Don't be alarmed by the police stationed outside, they are patroling the kids at the movie theater and the parking lot.
Dress code varied tremendously from extremely casual to wedding attire.

At one time, Semolina was all over the New Orleans area, now there is only the Clearview location. Enjoyable diverse pasta dishes. Good fish dishes. Reasonably priced.

We came here for the first time and loved it! I recommend the grilled chicken with pasta as it was phenomenal. The veal he ordered was not as great, kind of overcooked/tough which is surprising for veal. We would go back again though I am pretty sure he won't order the veal again.

I've come to Semolina with family and friends for over a decade, and I'll keep coming back for as long as I can. Literally some of the best pasta and Italian dishes in the New Orleans area for a reasonable price. Staff is always friendly, efficient, and willing to accomodate. I highly recommend the Quattro Formaggio and Shrimp Roban.
