We had dinner here recently and can't wait to go back. Authentic Neapolitan pizza made in an oven brought over from Italy, delicious pork liver mousse with house sweet mustard, and the absolute best gnocchi I've tasted, ever. The pizza is fabulous, with excellent crust...More

This restaurant is in my uptown neighborhood which makes it off the beaten path if you are staying in the French Quarter. It is definitely worth the trip uptown, and it is only about 5 blocks from the St Charles streetcar. The menu is small...More

We are fans of new and innovative pizza “joints”, and this place hit the mark. They have daily pizza specials which are unique and their salad and appetizers will excite the appetite. The pizza crust was thin and crisp, but not crackly and the wine...More

Very nice, bustling pizza parlor on freret street. Atmosphere is busy and noisy! But you cannot beat the pizza here. It is fresh baked in a 1000 degree tiled brick oven. Fresh topping like fresh mozarella cheese from the St. James Cheese shoppe. Fresh cut...More

Very much their own self sufficient unit within the
greater metro area, Uptown and Carrollton tone down
the urban edge with a friendly attitude and collegiate
feel. Home to Tulane and Loyola Universities, all the
students living in the area ensure that Uptown and
