Brunch on Saturday and Sunday is primarily first come, first served. If you do not see the time you want available online, please call us directly.

When owner Johnny Carrabba set out on his next restaurant venture, he knew his vision would include the fond memories he had of his dear grandmother Grace Mandola. Grace, also known to the family as Mama, was a Sicilian woman born to immigrant parents in Louisiana. She had a flair for cooking, hospitality, and deep faith.

She was known to make bread from scratch every Saturday for her legendary three-hour Sicilian Sunday lunches; and, her newly established family roots in Louisiana added interesting flavors to her home cooked meals. The entire Mandola family, including her five children and fourteen grandchildren, was regularly greeted in her home with smells of warm bread, well brewed sauces and homemade soups. It was around her table that her family learned the true meaning and value of relationships, friendships and good food.

    Only complaint was we were charged extra for something we ordered originally. The order had potatoes on the plate when we ordered grits, we brought it to the attention of the server, and they brought grits out after and charged us for the additional food item.

    Our waiter was amazing. Very friendly and professional. $26 for a cobb salad is ridiculous. It wasn’t even a large salad, although the circumference of the plate was large, it was shallow, maybe only an inch deep. Very poor value. The restaurant was busy and tables close together. No ambiance at all. Overall disappointing. Won’t go back.

    The food was great as usual. We had the Cajun Stuffed Chicken Breast with greens and Mac and cheese and the Red Snapper breaded in shredded potatoes in a lemon butter sauce served with asparagus. I’m still dreaming about the snapper!! The service was great as well. Our Grandchild slept the entire time so the noise level was perfect!

    The service was mediocre at best. They brought our food too early and too fast and hadn’t cleared the appetizers plates and the server touched my arm with an extremely hot pan of chicken pot pie and burned my skin a little. The shrimp poblano was terrible, just tried to choke through it. For such high prices, I don’t want to be rushed to try and choke my food down. It was a poor dining experience.

    I ordered the Rosie's fried chicken and it was seasoned to perfection. The black-eyed peas and beer battered fries were delicious. My friend ordered the Chicken Pot Pie. There was chicken and veggies in every bite. Did I mention the Cornbread and butter..I wanted to eat all of it by myself...Soooo...good! Gabriel, our server was AWESOME with the service he provided and also with the recommendations. We will be back and SOON!
