    NOLA's best Italian is on the West Bank! Being able to buy a jar (or 2) of gravy to take home is an extra bonus!!

    I go specifically for the Chicken Lindsey Grace. I wish I could try other things but I just love it so much. Wonderful service, great atmosphere and amazing food, all 5 minutes from my house. What more could I ask for?

    Great food. Service was rushed, entre came before we finished our starters. Staff kept trying to take our plate’s before we were finished eating, so I suggest not ordering entrees until after I you have your starter. Beautiful inside but very loud. I will definitely go back.

    The food is always very good and the service too. Wine list is rather limited, but some good choices are fair prices. Good selection of entrees and desserts. We liked the quiet dining room unlike many other restaurants today. You could actually have a conversation without having to raise your voice. Owners are usually present and greet everyone who enters the dining room. Good place for a family meal or a date night.

    We heard a lot of good things about this place so our level of expectation was high. Overall it was a disappointing experience. The food was adequate but not special. The noise level was such that we could not have a conversation The service was terrible. We will not go back.

    First time here on our overnight trip to New Orleans on the night prior to our cruise. From the employee helping to park cars all the way to the wait staff and other employees, it was a great experience. You felt welcome the minute you got out of yoyr car. The atmosphere was great and the food was excellent. The wait staff was very attentive and friendly. I highly recommend this restaurant and will most definitely be back.

    Food was rather bland. We arrived 10 minutes prior to our reservation and had to wait about 30 minutes for a table. We ordered and paid for a drink at the bar while we waited. We were seated , ordered appetizers and one person ordered an additional cocktail. Appetizers were OK but definitely needed the sauce to get any flavor. We ordered the tuna, redfish, veal and ravioli. All we're pretty bland. You'd expect some distinct basil, oregano, garlic flavors but we got none of those. Didn't bother with desert. Got the bill and they charged us again for drinks we already paid for at the bar, not just the one additional ordered. Took at least 15 minutes for the bill to be corrected.

    We were greeted by a lovely gentleman outside who helped us park. Upon entering there was a lovely piano player playing and a great family atmosphere. The lighting and ambience were perfect. And the service was great as well. The waitress could’ve checked on us just a little bit more and kept our drinks coming, but other than that she was wonderful. Loved the family atmosphere and love to support the locals. A nice quiet, cute gem on the West Bank that I never knew existed. It was nice to go to a good restaurant that wasn’t over priced.
