“The food is worth the wait!”
Reviewed January 30, 2013

We had a typical 45 minute wait to eat, but the food (lamb is a must!) was worth it. This is a locals and well as out of town visitor spot, so be patient!

“Not what we expected”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

We visited Irene's with some friends for the fist time and found it crowded and uncomfortable. It was not worth the expense and we will probably not return.

“Creole Italian”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Friendly service, great food and atmo. The wait staff is professional, nearby but not hovering. Recommend if you want really good Italian in the Quarter. "Family Friendly"

“Wonderful Experience”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

This small place unique with a great and informed staff. You feel very special. We had a table near a fireplace. The Italian food was excellent. My husband had shrimp scampi and I had veal marsala...both very good. We'll be back.

“Irene's scores a hit”
Reviewed January 22, 2013

Highly recommended so on our last visit to the "Big Easy" we gave it a try. Had a reservation but still had to wait 30 minutes. Expected this ater reading other reviews. There are only 26 tables in Irene's and high demand.Well worth the wait. My husband and I both had fish which was very nicely prepared and delicious. Quite authentic Northern Italian food. Entree prices are very reasonable ($18 - $24). Atmosphere is very cozy and old Italian, has the feel of a true Italian cafe. Will make a point to visit Irene's again.
