Cute and fun little Italian eatery in the Warehouse District. We were there for our 14th Anniversary and it did not disappoint. The food was delicious but beware the Ala Vodka pasta is super spicy. Our service was fantastic and the pizza was on point. Kudos to the chef and staff.

We loved this restaurant. Great location away from the craziness of the French Quarter but walkable from and in a cool 'warehouse' neighborhood. The buzz and vibe was just right. We dined outside and felt very comfortable and started with a drink inside at the bar. If not for Covid we would have loved to dine inside. Our appetizer - the House Ricotta - was exceptional and absolutely delicious. The Cacio e Pepe was some of the best I had ever had. My daughter's Alla Vodka was also outstanding although I would have preferred a penne or different variety over the 'twisted' pasta. The Scallops were also cooked and seasoned to perfection; my daughter who is a pescatarian and also very picky about her seafood loved it. Super friendly and attentive staff. We can't wait to go back!

Always a carefully prepared dish, simple yet very tasty salad, followed by their mushroom-leek pizza- enjoyed everything!

Not at all what I expected as it came highly recommended but really a very average at best Italian dining experience... maybe I should have done more research... if you like pizza it’s an alright place to go.

Terrific food and great service. The house ricotta is the best. Love the crust of the pizzas and I also had the seafood risotto and it was made perfectly with a good amount of seafood love.

Drinks and ambiance is the best by far. Food choices require a certain pallet but very beautiful setting. Pizza my favorite! Service depends on who you get. I didnt have any problems but my guest arrived before me and they were taken a back by a comment of " everything we have is listed on the menu"! After they were asking about an item trying to decide what they would order, as it was their first visit. I wont rat the server out because once I got there things went smoother and we still tipped nicely. So I would only recommend a little more tact and patience with customers by being open to explain the menu. I'll be back, as I believe in second chances :)

The Burrata cheese pizza was incredible. The meatballs were good. I would ad some more lean protiens for the diners who want a healthier option but service was great and so was the food.

It was my second time at the restaurant and it was fabulous, yet again! We went for lunch and ordered the meatballs to start. Absolutely delicious, served alongside some of the most amazing bread I’ve ever tasted. We then ordered the spicy pizza and the margherita pizza - authentic, thin crust, Italian wood burning oven pizza. So delicious! I can’t forget about the cocktails. I had the super refreshing Classic Spritz. I highly recommend. Great spot for lunch and dinner with an energetic and fun atmosphere! The staff are very nice and friendly - service was a little slow at times but it was a busy Sunday brunch service. Overall great experience!

I loved the food, but the portions are super small which is why I gave it 3 starts. If the portions were larger I would definitely have given it 5 stars. The drinks were also very good. I would recommend that the restaurant make their portions larger so the pasta dishes could be an entrée rather than individual starters.

Our servers Gabe and Peter went well above and beyond, in true tag team fashion to make our evening quite special. The head chef even came out to make sure we enjoyed our meal. We will likely return again. Looking forward to seeing the new spring menu.
