Lunched their for our anniversary. A small cute neighborhood feel restaurant. Read reviews and wanted to give a try. BUT... when we arrived at 11:45am for lunch, 5 tables in use, was not made to feel welcomed. Waitress, tall girl with black hair, acted like she was doing us a favor. Food was good, but ordered Seafood Lasagna, Lenten special.... More

The red sauce was great. Had veal and it was tender. The service was very good also. The place was small but not overcrowded. The wine was good and drinks just fine. Would have given 5 star but bread was store bought with cheese on it. Was a good mixture of a family place with a little upscale atmosphere.

Whatever you order, the food has always been good. Lunch entrees come with a salad. There are no sandwiches on the menu. There is a soup du jour. Service was excellent.

!st time eating here. Service was very, very, very, slow. Upon sitting down, restaurant only had two other tables of two people each. Took forever (probably 15 minutes) for waiter to take drink orders, wait about 10 minutes, serve drinks and take meal orders. This was at 11:30am. Restaurant opened at 11:00am. They ran out of one of the "lunch... More

What in the world has happened to Fausto's? Over the years, it has been a consistently decent place where you could count on decent Italian food. Tonight earned them a spot on my permanent restaurant time out list. First, the breadsticks--Costco breadsticks--two cut in half, sprinkled with butter and a little Italian cheese. The food--I ordered the chicken marsala. I... More

From the ambience of the dining room, to the attentive service and phenomenal cuisine, Faustos is a diamond in the rough. Went here for my first date with my spouse, and again for our 10 year anniversary! Nothing has changed!!! When you're in Metairie come here for authentic Italian cuisine!

I love trying mom & pop restaurants. Their chicken alfredo is delicious. It's a cozy place and the staff is very helpful.

To be fair, I've been eating here at least 15 years and know Roland and Fausto as a long time customer. It's more of a local's place than a tourist restaurant, but that's the beauty of New Orleans. They have the usual Italian fare, but their Italian seafood dishes are out of this world. But, the veal Saltimbocca is the... More

This quaint venerable Metairie establishment can easily be overlooked cruising down Veterans Boulevard. Don't be misled by the somewhat spartan appearance of the building. Once inside, you'll find a warm and charming character that has made this a favorite among Metairie residents that have a love affair with classic Italian food for decades. Don't miss the Arancini appetizer.

We were also most fooled by the outside which looks funky with its neon sign, inside was a pleasant surprise. The food we had from the bruschetta, grilled chicken pasta and crime brûlée were all wonderfully done. The service was exceptional and the atmosphere conducive to a leisurely dinner.

Grazie to Papa & Mama who first taught us appreciate the good food we encountered after many years of living, eating and cooking Italian.
Pasta , olive oil, gardens of fresh herbs and garlic, seafood , veal and poultry have always been the glory of Italian and Sicilian food.
Fausto and Rolando invite and welcome you to dine Italian style!
Serving proudly since 1990 !!
