I'm a native New Orleanian of Italian descent, I love food! I learned my culinary skills from my mother and grandmothers and have had success over the years serving some of their delightfullly classic dishes. I am very attached to my Italian roots and have been in the industry a long time. My wife Mary and I work diligently at the restaurant to make it a wondeful place to dine for all of our guest.

If you are looking for a "Spaghetti & Meatballs" restaurant, this is the one. Italian version of a Greek diner.

I saw the pasta dish served at the table next to me, with the sauce on top kind of cooking.

Sorry nothing Italian here, not for me!

It is a very small venue. We had a reservation for 7:00pm and waited an extra 30 minutes before getting seated. There really is no where to stand and wait. We were seated in a smaller room that looked like it was converted from a large closet with 3 tables in it. It was a bit tight and they initially closed the door making it way too hot and we felt a bit claustrophobic. We finally got them to get the air right in there and keep the door open. The wait staff was very good and extremely attentive. Food came out timely and it was very good. There were; however, several items that they had run out of by the time we sat down. Seems very popular place. Could benefit from expanding the eating areas so you don't feel so crowded in there.

The service and the people working there, in general, are fun and engaging. It’s like having a fun family dinner. 😊. We each had the parmigiana, he with veal and me with chicken. Both were juicy and delicious. The spinach and artichoke soup was a cream based soup but it was very light and soothing after a long day. The Caesar salad had, in our opinion, the perfect amount of dressing (We don’t like our salads drowning in dressing). There is a fun downstairs seating area. We chose the upstairs area, which was a quieter and yet still engaging experience experience. In some restaurants, you feel forgotten when you go upstairs…not at all the case here. We will be returning soon!

Mary the owner was very friendly and personable. She was very welcoming. Our server had extremely good manners, knew the menu front and back, and was very quick. The food was incredible. The only knock is the tables are very close.

Service was excellent. We were in a private room which was perfect because we were celebrating wedding anniversary and would have been very loud for the rest of the restaurant. Loved our waitress.

Portions are way too big. Not able to enjoy somewhat expensive dinner after eating half of a single appetizer. Other than that, food is decent and staff is friendly and attentive.

Had 6:45 reservations however it took over 2 hours to receive our entrees. Waiter had a horrible attitude. I was frustrated and ready to leave. Spoke to the owner and she begged us to stay so she can make it right. Gave us another waiter who was very pleasant. Food finally came out and I was not impressed with it. Really wanted to like this place..had a very old school Italian vibe. However, poor customer service and food taste..not worth it.

This is my favorite Italian restaurant by far. Great food and hands on owners make this a go to place! Food is always on point and the chef/owner and wife always make you feel so welcome, like you’re part of their family. We always leave there totally satisfied!

A consistently great restaurant. The chef only serves fresh, high quality food, prepared perfectly. The waiters are professional and experienced, which make every meal flow well. The building is small, providing an intimate dining experience. Reservations are usually necessary because of the limited size and popularity.

First timer here had the app of Panfried eggplant rounds w/lump crabmeat in btwn the rounds - EXCELLENT...!!! One of the evening specials was Ill Pesce Fresco (redfish pan fried & topped w/almond slices) w/sautéed squash - which was also great... We both ordered & were very happy w/the selection.
Desert was a generous square of bread pudding & warmed rum sauce... also marvelous.
Establishment I’ll be most definitely patronizing in the future & Family owned/operated (who were @ the restaurant & involved) which is always better than a chain restaurant...

Server (David I believe) pressured me into leaving a bigger tip even though he came to our table 3 times in 2 hours.
