We had oyster’s Mosca, spaghetti bordelaise and chicken cacciatore. Loved the food, the noisy, family atmosphere, pretty much as I remembered years ago. Can’t wait to bring friends who understand that south Louisiana Italian is influenced by creole cooking and it is a marriage made...More

Child please. Oysters to die for. Signature cocktail is an Old Fashioned. Excellent wine list. Good old Italian food family owned for decades.

We made a trip out here via a cab from our hotel near bourbon street. Well worth the trip, believe me. This tucked away palace of delicacies will delight your palate and pamper you with royal treatment.

First, really, simply ignore Bob from NY or Jennifer from Atlanta...sorry but they just don't get it. Like Bob from NY, I have been coming to Mosca's since 1974...maybe now 100 times...and have I had an occasional dry chicken Grande? Of course. But was just...More

I've been visiting Mosca's since 1980 (REALLY!), and I've enjoyed its quirky refusal to change. It's unique - but no longer in a good way. My last two visits have been very disappointing. They've kept the old menu, but have forgotten to tell the cooks...More
