Child please. Oysters to die for. Signature cocktail is an Old Fashioned. Excellent wine list. Good old Italian food family owned for decades.

We made a trip out here via a cab from our hotel near bourbon street. Well worth the trip, believe me. This tucked away palace of delicacies will delight your palate and pamper you with royal treatment.

We have been coming to Moscas since I was a student at Tulane in the 60's. The Oysters Mosca is still my favorite dish. Chicken a La Grande is wonderful. Note that they take cash only. A restaurant we have been dining at for 50...More

This old family restaurant has minimal atmosphere and few menu items to offer. The service was certainly lacking. The standard spaghetti was delicious. The chicken ala grand was very tasty. The sausage Johnny was overcooked and dry. Cash only with hefty prices is certainly not...More
