This WAS a fabulous Italian eatery with a low light ambiance that was the essense of New Orleans. Alas it has gone away - likely due to it's eclectic location as well as so many other new restaurants in the burgeoning Warehouse District.

For New Orleans, with all of its heavy red sauce, Sicilian roots, it is a very pleasant find to have veal, cream sauces and stuffed pastas in abundance. The half portion pasta orders, I'd consider them to be a full size serving anywhere else, are...More

Shame on Trip Adviser for touting this dive to unsuspecting visitors. If you like very large portions of mediocre, tasteless food, served to you by a sweaty middle-aged waitress who literally paws the guests, while physically crowding them, with no wine choices and, Lordy, weak...More

Dark and dated. Food is neighborhood Italian. One size fits all wine glasses. What Americans think Italians eat. Heavy red sauce, veal without subtlety. Service was very attentive however. Overall not worth the trip.

streetcars, proudly grandiose antebellum mansions,
picture perfect avenues lined with live oaks loaded
down with Spanish moss, and a wealth of beautiful
