OAK OVEN is, first and foremost, a casual neighborhood restaurant dedicated to providing reasonably priced, high-end quality food, healthy meal options and impeccable service. The menu is heavily influenced by the Sicilian heritage of the restaurant’s founders. Their ancestors began arriving in New Orleans in the 1870’s and quickly melded into the fabric of the Crescent City. OAK OVEN’s award-winning fare celebrates this fusion of Sicilian, Italian and New Orleans culture. The restaurant centers around an authentic, Mugnaini wood-burning pizza oven and the famous, Neapolitan-style pies it produces. The ambiance created by the dancing flames inside the oven is both magical and primitive. The “from scratch” kitchen and unique, one-of-a-kind flavors transform dining at OAK OVEN into a divine experience.

Some of the seating is uncomfortable and some of the tables a bit small, but the food and service are outstanding and that's what matters! I have tried several things on the menu and have never been disappointed.

The food was delicious but our waiter wasn’t attentive at all. He was in a hurry to take order but vanished after that.

Eaten here many times and this time was not so good. The service was great but the portion size and taste was off. I always get the same dish and this time my wife got a small portion of the same thing. Looked like they made mine and then took hers out of my bowl. I had 4 shrimp and very little crab meat and she had 3 shrimp and very little crab meat. I'm going back one more time and hopefully things will be better.

It had been a while since we had been to the restaurant and were very much impressed with the expansive menu and the quality of the pasta. We mostly had pizza when we went before, but believe me, we won’t wait so long to go back again! Service was friendly and excellent too!!!
