This little gem could be easily missed, tucked in next to the Apple Barrel Bar. There is usually a wait because it is small. We visited this restaurant twice on our trip to New Orleans, it was that good. The sauces are the star here. You can choose your type of seafood (drum is the fresh local fish and is delicious) and then add the sauce of your choice. Ocean sauce seems to be the most popular with shrimp, crab, crawfish in a creamy sauce. You can also have it on veal, chicken or steak. I had the cannelloni combo -- corn and crabmeat on one and spinach and Italian sausage on the other. Both were covered with a creamy red sauce and parmesan cheese. I also had chicken Parmesan and it was tender and tasty with a homemade marinara sauce and lots of mozzarella cheese. The only reason I rated it a four instead of a five is because of the bread. It is a hard, dry toasted sweet French bread that is not up to the standard of the rest of the restaurant's food. Other than that, a visit to Adolfo's is highly recommended!
