    Wait person actually rolled her eyes when my friend asked if they had a flavored vodka. We were told the food was family style. The portions are small for family style so if you’re hungry don’t expect much.

    Disappointed on Return. Insalata Mista and Carrots are reliable starters but the Pesto Pasta was smothered in too much pesto. Couldn’t see the pasta for the pesto. Picante Pizza is good if a little overwrought. Good wine list, Nube desert and espresso rescued the finish.

    Best food we’ve had since being in NOLA! We picked it off of Yelp and had a reservation 1/2 hour later! The focaccia bread with ricotta was delicious, the kale salad with beets was very fresh and the homemade pasta with vodka was a yummy delight! I wish we had this place in our town! Go, for sure if you can!

    The pescare red snapper with capers and lemon was just right, so delicious. The margherita pizza that followed was extra flavorful tonight, perhaps due to the amazing pescare 😃 and wonderful waitress service.

    Only half the entrees came out after about 35 mins, tasty but the other entrees came out about 50 mins later and then there was hair in them. All we got was “sorry” but no attempt to make it right or even comp part of the meal or the drinks. Unfortunate because it had great reviews…..
