Ditali’s, Harvey, LA Report #175

  My dining partner and I were in the mood for pizza.  I’m ashamed to admit it, but we were headed to Sicily’s Pizza.  That’s right.  The cheap, buffet chain that puts out all you can eat pizza and a few other things.  They happened to be closed.  Maybe the good Lord was looking out… Continue reading Ditali’s, Harvey, LA Report #175

Tony Mandina’s, Gretna, LA Report #166

  I can’t remember the last time I went to a restaurant that I could absolutely rave about, but this is it!  My new favorite Italian restaurant.  Even if I tried I couldn’t find anything to report negatively on after this dining experience. There’s ample off street parking, with an attendant to keep an eye… Continue reading Tony Mandina’s, Gretna, LA Report #166

Louisiana Pizza Kitchen, New Orleans, LA Report #155

    I was in the pizza/pasta mood and heard good things about this place, so I figured I’d give it a try.  There’s one in the French Quarter, but I opted to avoid the hassles of parking down there.  This is the one located at 615 S. Carrollton in the Riverbend area. Nice looking… Continue reading Louisiana Pizza Kitchen, New Orleans, LA Report #155

Adolfo’s, New Orleans, LA Report #148

  I have a new favorite Italian restaurant. If you’re walking through the 600 block of the bustling and popular Frenchmen St., you’ll see the sign for Adolfo’s Restaurant, and a red door.  If you open the door you’ll see a tiny bar.  Not a restaurant.  But, you’ll also see a staircase.  If you go… Continue reading Adolfo’s, New Orleans, LA Report #148

Mo’s Pizza, Westwego, LA Report #122

  I hadn’t thought about Mo’s in years until a guy I work with mentioned it.  He was born here in New Orleans but his parents are from Sicily.  And when someone calls him Italian he says, “I’m not Italian, I’m Sicilian”.  But then he also brags he wasn’t in the Navy, but in the… Continue reading Mo’s Pizza, Westwego, LA Report #122

Andrea’s, Metairie, LA Report #120

  Andrea’s is located on a back street, a block off of the very busy Causeway Blvd.  You wouldn’t run across the place unless you were looking for it.  To guide you to it there’s a huge red sign right on Causeway which is lit up impressively at night. The place is beautiful, complete with… Continue reading Andrea’s, Metairie, LA Report #120
