We've been there a few times but the last time (for my birthday) was very "not special". Appetizers were very good but the entrees were just average. I had the veal, layered with eggplant, prosciutto and mozzarella. Sounds wonderful but it just seemed like a pile of stuff thrown together. Average italian in my opinion. I think there are better...

we ent there christmas eve to celebrate our wedding anniversary. we did not know that is was a set menu that night, but we stayed anyway. my wife had the huge pork chop and i had the frutti de mare. the meal was very good, but we thought that it was a bit overpriced at $50 per person.

The Restaurant went over backwards to accommodate the 14 people in our group. We ordered off the menu so there was going to be an expected delay. Surprise Every order was taken and served in an orderly and delightful way. We all found the food delicious. Service was pleasant and for that large a crowd appropriate. No problem returning there...

My party of two called ahead of time to schedule a reservation for dinner at 7:45. Usually when you reserve a table, you expect to be seated right away. When we got there, we were greeted by the restaurant manager or owner, still not quite sure which she was, was told it would be a few minutes before we were... More

Nice place for Italian in Metairie. Quaint atmosphere and very good service. Marinated crab claws are a must.

I stayed out in Metairie in a hotel where any food was close but still a drive away. This place was a walk and it was worth it. If i ever stay in the same hotel, i will visit this place again.

The title says it all! Very attentive staff and great food! Only thing keeping this from five stars was that our sauces were a little too oily. Opinions are opinions, though, so you might think it's fine. The flavor of the food though was awesome, as was the ambience of the dining room. Not a bad wine selection either I... More

This was my second visit to this restaurant and it was even better than the first. The restaurant is small and it does tend to get crowded on weekends, so reservations are highly suggested. We had calamari for an appetizer which was lightly breaded and wonderful. The marinara sauce had a nice sweet taste. For entrees, we went with two... More
