The outside of the building does not hint to the warm, cozy interior with murals on the wall and other details that make for a relaxed and welcoming dining room. They have a full bar so you can have a cocktail or wine with your...More

Always a great dining experience at Fausto's. We have been there in a small group setting, with 8-10 people in the smaller front room, and also when having a business meeting with another person. The Italian food is always well prepared, seasoned perfectly, and have...More

Dined here for the second time this month and always know what to expect. Decent portions, delicious food and friendly staff. There's a reason restaurants stay in business this long...especially in New Orleans. Don't hesitate to check it out.

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.

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 !!
