    NOLA Chow down 5 Stars! A true taste of Sicily at Tana! Tana exceeded our expectations in every way. The moment we stepped inside, we were struck by the beautiful decor, which transported us to the sun-kissed hills of Sicily. It’s really is a beautiful restaurant. Our waitress, warm and attentive, made us feel like family, while the entire staff welcomed us with open arms from the moment we stepped in. I was even able to have a conversation in Italian with one of the staff members. Amazing. The food was prepared perfectly. The chef's innovative approach, blending Sicilian flavors with North African spices, added a unique twist and love to every dish. His grandmother, Tana, would be extremely proud of the dishes he has developed and put forth for people to love and enjoy. The red gravy, a staple of traditional Sicilian cuisine, was nothing short of phenomenal. Rich, tangy, and full-bodied, it complemented the meatballs perfectly. Those tender morsels of heaven were cooked to perfection, with a depth of flavor that left us wanting more. The chicken, moist and delicious, was balanced with a hint of spice, while the four cheese ravioli was rich and full of flavor. Next time I will order a cup of red gravy to pour on top because I could eat it on anything. Lastly, the squid ink pasta, a traditional Sicilian specialty, was both unique and delicious. It was PACKED with flavors and richness. Each bite was something different and a whole new experience. Very rare to have a dish like that. Finally, the tiramisu - a masterpiece! Rich, creamy, and not too sweet, it exploded with flavor, just as we expected. We haven’t had a meal remind us of Sicily as much as our meal at Tana. Great experience, great atmosphere, great food. 5 stars without question. Looking forward to our next visit very very soon.

    I love this place for brunch - my first time back in 12 years! The atmosphere is great, almost treehouse like, and very cafe-like. They had the plastic sides down, and with the A/C and fans, it was very pleasant. I've also always loved the tree in the middle. Service was quick and friendly. I had been craving grits and grillades, and it did not disappoint - rich gravy, tender veal, and not too many grits (in my opinion, that's a good thing). My grandmother's eggs benedict was delicious with perfectly poached runny eggs. Drink selection was nice, with their special french mimosa and traditional brunch cocktails (I had a French 75). Maybe a few dollars overpriced - would love some brunch drink specials, but what are you going to do? Would definitely go back and try some more dishes.

    We still had to wait an hour, in the heat, to get a table. Would have loved to get in at the reserved time. Need two lines. One for reservations and one for walk-ins. Other than that, everything was PERFECT!!!
