Grabbed a late night meal at the cozy Filippo while traveling on business and staying at the nearby airport Marriott Courtyard. Ate at the bar and was very happy with my meal (eggplant parm and Italian salad as well as friendly service.

My party of two called ahead of time to schedule a reservation for dinner at 7:45. Usually when you reserve a table, you expect to be seated right away. When we got there, we were greeted by the restaurant manager or owner, still not quite sure which she was, was told it would be a few minutes before we were... More

Nice place for Italian in Metairie. Quaint atmosphere and very good service. Marinated crab claws are a must.

I stayed out in Metairie in a hotel where any food was close but still a drive away. This place was a walk and it was worth it. If i ever stay in the same hotel, i will visit this place again.

The title says it all! Very attentive staff and great food! Only thing keeping this from five stars was that our sauces were a little too oily. Opinions are opinions, though, so you might think it's fine. The flavor of the food though was awesome, as was the ambience of the dining room. Not a bad wine selection either I... More

This was my second visit to this restaurant and it was even better than the first. The restaurant is small and it does tend to get crowded on weekends, so reservations are highly suggested. We had calamari for an appetizer which was lightly breaded and wonderful. The marinara sauce had a nice sweet taste. For entrees, we went with two... More

Small Italian Restaurant owned by a very pleasant couple, Philip and Mary Gagliano. Went in for a small salad and was treated to a crab salad that was incredible. I saw fried eggplant on the menu and requested a few pieces on my salad, which they did and designed the new creation delightfully. Highly recommended.

Jewel of a classic NOLA Italian restaurant. Old-fashioned ambiance with friendly, attentive service. Go if you want southern Italian with slow-simmered marinara. Vitello parmigiano is superb. House salad on the small side with too much vinaigrette, but that was the only--and very minor downside.

The appetizer of the day, Eggplant Napoleon, with layers of eggplant medalions and a crab/crawfish sauce was excellent. I tasted my friend's spaghetti and meatballs and it was great too. I ordered the baked oysters, and they were okay, not excellent (too large and not enough seasoning).
