While the menu is rooted in tradition, our chefs focus on elevating Italian ingredients and classic flavors to create modern classics, adapted for the contemporary palate of New Orleans. The fresh pastas made by hand daily, roasted vegetables, meats and Napolitano style pizzas, all prepared in the restaurant’s iconic wood oven, are perfectly complemented by custom-brewed beers, seasonal craft cocktails and an Italian-focused wine list.

Dine here regularly for happy hour and this visit was well below their standards, Took 30!minutes to receive drinks and over an hour for food to arrive
Excellent advice about the wine selection. Roasted Brussel sprouts were pretty incredible. The Truffle Agnolotti was scrumptious. Such a satisfying meal. Great service, too!
Excellent service and really good food.
Trip downtown to see the lights w my husband and 2.5 year old. Perfect dinner. Happy hour is amazig
I don’t know if it was a new chef or kitchen staff. But the food I always eat there and return for time and again was so so average. The best thing on the menu, the cauliflower with whipped feta, was so rubbery and cold and just awful. The pasta dish we ordered was sticky and bland. We sent that back. The pizzas were good. But not “knock your socks off” good. Just good. So disappointed.
Everything was great but they did get the dessert order wrong, other than that it was good!
Birthday-had a wonderful time
The entree was marginal- the meatballs had no flavor- my shrimp dish was ok.
The service was impeccable and the vibe in the restaurant was lovely.
I wouldn’t recommend because of the food.
Service and food were fantastic! Great place for a special occasion.
Delicious food and professional, personable,and efficient staff.
Really great food and service. Planning on going back
We came on Thanksgiving and they had a set 4-course meal - would probably prefer to try their normal food, but it was still good.
While I love Alon Shaya’s recipes, the restauranteurship leaves something to be desired now that he is not involved. This was our second visit where the server was pleasant, but cocktails and wine were very slow (10-15 minute wait after order) not once but twice. My son is a foodie, loving to try different dishes; and yet he was very disappointed with the hangar steak, which was fatty, irregularly cooked, and lacked seasoning. It felt that because he was a kid, his dish received little attention. Meanwhile, the table next to was all children under 10 with no parents who were running around unsupervised for 2 hours. They got timely service. We were properly behaving 12 -79 and had to bus our own table to have room for the next course.
Wonderful service and food..,., as always!
Food was very good. Great selection. Service was poor. Too few servers to accommodate the space. And with the lack of staff, the existing wait staff was inattentive, unable to discern that the time to dine was excessive and was inconsistent between tables. And while the food was very good, after a considerable wait for our appetizers, a portion of one of our guest's dishes was what he referred to as ice cold.
I would give it another shot, but if my experience was the same or similar, I would forget about it!
They did a nice job with my allergies to shellfish and treenuts. Much appreciated.
Amazing meal, great value for food and drink at happy hour! 5 stars
Arugula salad was great. My dinner companion loved the lasagna and I had the lemon pasta which was delicious.
Great good & service as usual.
Food good, wine & service excellent.
My favorite place for Italian food.
The service is good and the food is amazing.
The pizza was soggy. Maybe undercooked? The $18 cauliflower was almost to salty to eat and a bit hard. Needed a steak knife to cur. Service adequate. Happy hour wine is the best.
Food was great & so was the service.
Nice little place outside of the French quarter. And they had my wine, so I was happy!
Food was good
Lovely, as ALWAYS. Menu is consistently surprising and delicious.
Friendly chatter from knowledgeable servers, always the freshest ingredients from the kitchen, and perfect drinks promptly from the bar. Love this place.
Excellent service. The “small primi” portions were a good size. The Shrimp Risotto was excellent. Pizza was really good too. Cocktails were good, but felt a little small.
Great food and service
The ambiance was nice (even though the tables could use some love, refinishing or tablecloths would go nice with vibe) and the service was great! However the food quality and taste was not consistent. Everything my friend ordered was delicious (mushroom soup and squid ink pasta). My orders however were not good. The spaghetti and meatballs (not on menu, you have to ask for it) was so salty. I mean it tasted like a spoonful of salt with every bite. I sent that back (b/c it was not edible) and ordered the shrimp risotto and that was basic at best. I ate it b/c I was very hungry but left much to desired.
Overall I would go back for wine and pizza, or sit at the bar for drinks/date situation but I would not return to truly dine.
Snapper, pizza and desserts were all excellent. Server was very attentive. Great old fashioned too.
Waiter was very pushy, and with no understanding of who is the customer and who is the server. Needs an attitude check. It’s not like I’ve never eaten at a restaurant? To be honest in all my years of eating out all over the world, this is the closest I’ve come to getting up and walking out. And, his beard was much too long to be serving food!
Shrimp risotto was excellent. Pizza was very good but some areas too charred on bottom. Buccatini pasta excellent, sauce was just good.
Always excellent food and service, their happy hour is one of the best in New Orleans.
Can’t go wrong with their Italian wine and brick oven pizza.
The service and drinks were great, as on every occasion I have been there. Food quality was very good as it has been every time.
Fab! Every dish was amazing!
Order the lasagna! The best! Large portion and easily shared.
The clam and margarita pizzas and the wagu steak were excellent . I was a bit disappointed in the sangria cocktail a bit flat and the cauliflower appetizer was way over salted and very small. I had a client with me so didn’t want to make fuss. The dinner was great but the appetizer that is a fan favorite should be on point.
Got the snapper, nothing special, undercooked, rubbery skin, undercooked vegetables. Great service though, food was just mediocre.
