Delicious, fresh, authentic Italian food.
Happened to walk past this place this afternoon and got a whiff of the basil on someone's bruschetta - insisted we come back for dinner! Glad we did. It's a tad pricey but trust me, it's worth it. Very delicious authentic Italian food. Many ingredients are imported, and everything is super fresh. Fare is fairly light but still filling. It's so refreshing to find an Italian restaurant in New Orleans that offers food other than huge, heavy, cheezy, overly sauced, gut-busting dishes.
Large wine list, although we didn't try any. Skip the birra (beer) it was not impressive.
The fresh bread and breadsticks are accompanied by very flavorful olive oil and balsamic vinegar, which I much prefer to butter.
Do order the bruschetta appetizer, you will not be dissapointed. It had just the right amount of garlic, and was topped with a thin slice of parmesan.
I had a delicious penne pasta dish with an olive oil-based sauce and sauteed vegetables (squash, bell peppers, onions). My boyfriend ha
