No love is more sincere than the love for food. In 1861 King Umberto and Queen Margarita ate pizza for the first time. They fell in love with this pizza made with cheese, tomatoes, and basil – what we now know as the Margarita pizza – it was named after the queen. The story of food is the story of the people. They interact with each other in culture, medicine, invention, and in the growth of society. It tells the war between hunger and satisfaction. Good food is to plentiful not only your hunger but your soul too. This is what we, the La Contea family, plan to do in Southeast Louisiana. We are bringing the story and evolution of Italian food with the taste of all the legions of Italy. Based on fresh ingredients of homemade pastas filled with love and desire for the Italian food. We take pride in the dishes we prepare and how we present our dishes. We have been doing this for generations. We are bringing our traditions and story to Southeast Louisiana.

The wine selection was great. The lighting is low which makes it hard to see all the restaurant has to offer. They can expect us again.

My only observation is due to the busy day serving so many people, the service was a little slower than usual and the food not quite as exceptional as previous visits. We all contributed it to the number of guests being served. This will not keep us from returning there for future meals. The food is just too great!

The wait staff were more than gracious and attentive, although one suggestion would be to clear the table of empty dishes prior to the next course being served. The sensation salad seemed like nothing more than lettuce with a light Italian dressing, with the ceasar being a bit more tasty and would not order either again. The main courses were good and tasty. If you like red sauce on the sweeter side, this is perfect for you. We like it, but the overall quality/taste of food just wasn't what we expected. We'd definitely go back and try the pizza or a different dish. The restaurant is clean and the manager seemed very attentive.

I had the Capellini Putanesca with grilled shrimp added. I literally wiped my plate. My wife had the Fettuccini Alfredo with grilled chicken. I had to taste hers. So rich and creamy. Just right. We had the bruschetta for our appetizer. The halved cherry tomatoes really don't work. Dice them up finely . It was a bit overloaded but still very tasty. I ordered a bottle of Italien sangiovesa wine and as always, their stock is excellent. Just a lovely meal and the entertainment pushed it over the edge.

Sat in bar area at table which I like but now no service. Two bartenders busy as hell and doubling as waiters for those tables. Did not work. Second, this Frank Sinatra wanabe drove me crazy. If that's the best you got, just turn him off and we can all talk or whatever. Where is your great piano player and singer? Food as always: TERRIFIC. They did comp my wine due to the lack of service. Nice touch at the end. But I did not go there for free wine.

On some nights, such as Saturday nights and Valentine's they have a live singer. He is good but isn't too loud, you can still have a comfortable easy conversation at your table.

Our server was so sweet and so attentive. Food was amazing as always. However, our normally perfect Penelope Old Fashioned had an insane amount of bitters and was just very off from what we usually experience. My salad came out first and by itself. Then my husbands, once we reminded her he had one as well, also reminding her we had an appetizer. My sensation salad was very bland. Tasted like wet lettuce. We got our app after our salads and the food came less than 5m after our appetizer. I'm unsure if it was a server or kitchen issue. We normally take our time through dinner, stretching it out over an hour and a half or 2 hours. We were seated, fed and out the door in around 45m (10m of which we were waiting to initially be served because she was serving her big top table- which is completely fine, adding that detail strictly for timing purposes). I'm sure this was an off night, but it was very off from our usual experience here. This won't deter us, as this is our favorite place, but it was a but disappointing. Food was incredible, as usual. Everyone was very kind.

Our food was very good, my entree was hot and that is how it like it to be served. My husband had the Italy sample and actually had lasagna substituted for one of the three. It could have been served hotter, but no complaints. We enjoyed also having music during our dining.

We went for Restaurant Week and had a fixed 3 course menu, with 2-3 options for each course. Appetizers were Bruschetta and Calamari, both were delicious. Entrees we’re the Tour of Italy and Seafood pasta. The chicken parm with the Tour was the best of the trio. For dessert the options were Tiramisu and Lemon cake. Both were good, but the tiramisu was delicious. The special Espresso cocktail was the perfect pairing. Tasted exactly like an adult iced coffee, delicious. Only down side was the live music was a little loud for how big the restaurant was.
