Food was great but service was below average!! If it was slow that would have been fast! Waited for over an hour for a seat then waited for over an hour for our food!! Not worth the wait!

This is decidedly an old-school Italian-Creole restaurant with great pizza, quality pasta dishes and a wide selection. I found the red gravy (sauce) to be good but lacking in depth. Other than that, this is a place that has been doing what it does since the 1950s.

The Hook's invited us to their favorite Italian restaurant in New Orleans. First time back since we moved to Houma. The reservations made and the table ready when we arrived no waiting. The six of us enjoyed a variety of entrees from med-rare stake to soft-shell crab and some Italian dishes too. Our meal was excellent as always and the... More

A very Good Italian Restaurant, with Great Pizza, Italian dishes,Steaks, and salads that won't break the pocket book, nice menu and good service, old time New Orleans Italian Food, with the best Italian Ice Cream and Canolli in the South. A short street car ride from downtown on Canal St., worth a trip go early because it gets crowded, Boun... More

This has been a good place to go for traditional Italian food at a reasonable price. Their steaks are also very good. Everything we had (party of 4) was great. For the 1st time ever (I have been going there multiple times a year for as long as I can remember) I had bad service. Our waiter brought out the... More

Always a great Italian meal. Don't miss the Spinach and Artichoke bread as an appetizer. All of the meals are large and wonderful so go hungry - you won't regret it.

Love all their wonderful dishes, often much more than one person can eat so cheers for leftovers. Good spot for pizza, better than the many chain pizza places.

A short street car ride from the French Quarter. Best Italian restaurant ever. Not your typical fake Italian chain restaurant. A must!

We stopped for an early evening dinner before heading into town for the theatre. Service was excellent and friendly and very helpful. We split a small Specialty Salad and had the garlic bread. My husband enjoyed his veal while I had the Eggplant Vatican. Seems the kitchen forgot to let the wait staff know that their fettuccine did not arrive... More
