Contemporary Italian | Central Business District, New Orleans

The food and atmosphere were wonderful. The server was friendly and knowledgeable. Portions of pasta are ENOUGH as they are, no “entree size” needed. I wasted most of mine because it was too much food. You can share even the smaller portions. Their white cheddar cheese on the meat and cheese tray was amazing. The Canestri pasta was delicious. Peppery so if you don’t like pepper, take note. Make reservations because it is a more intimate setting. More

Discover New Orleans

French, Spanish and Creole influences evolved New Orleans cuisine into a genre all its own. Combine Gulf coast seafood, a butter-based sauce and Cajun spices, and you’re looking at a classic Nola dish. Take the famed crawfish boil, for instance, which locals advise is best eaten as a family. In the aftermath of hurricane Katrina, the restaurant industry banded together to support their city in the wake of serious devastation. New restaurants began opening their doors, and today you’ll find a wealth of cuisines that span the classics to modern reinventions to everything in between.
