Anthony lured us in with his friendliness and vivid descriptions of the menu. We were very impressed by his enthusiasm and decided to eat there instead of at another more flashy restaurant recommended by our hotel. We both really enjoyed our meal; my husband got...More

I was just exploring the area near the French Market for somewhere to eat and shop, when a man talks to someone in my group about maybe dining there. They coax him to go inside so we follow. They said we could look at the...More

Food tasted relatively good however the special was over priced and not all that tasty or of worthy size. Regular menu items tasted good. Service was not that coherent.

Fiorella's is officially an Italian restaurant, but they are famous for their fried chicken. In fact, it has one number one two years in a row at the New Orleans "Fried Chicken Festival!" That's not to say the rest of the food isn't top notch....More

Has the best fried chicken in the south, and yes I'm from South Louisiana. Anthony has to be the best host ever. You could have italian on your mind but he's gonna change your mind if he can.

Escaped the craziness of a Saturday night on Decatur and came in here for an early supper. It was pretty quiet, but the sound of old jazz echoed in the rather large space and I was treated to a delicious small plate of hanger steak...More

Service was great for a non reservation New Ysar's Eve however the food (fried chicken) was average. The bar was very "vanilla" with little choice. This place used to be a very good place but the entire menu is changing with very average tasting food.

I ate at the original Fiorella's years ago and it was a night and day difference in the ambiance with the rebuild. It's now very elegant and more like a wine bar. We ordered the fried chicken and it was delicious. We split a Caesar...More

If you want to experience true Southern fried chicken in the French Quarter, Fiorella's would be the place, long known for it's delectable mouth-watering fried chicken. For a mere $16 you get half a chicken (separated into its respective parts) with just the right amount...More

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the
