This is a cozy little spot for a nice Italian meal. Restaurant is a little small but the atmosphere is fun. It must be family run because the menus featured hand drawn and colored pictures of the Mona Lisa. Prices were reasonable and the food...More

And a fun Italian restaurant. I stop at least once every time I visit New Orleans. It is small so you may have a wait but as others have said it's worth it.

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
