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

Specialty Italian Bistro, Gretna, LA Report #66

I’ve been coming to this place for a few years and I like it!  The dining room, which I neglected to take a picture of isn’t huge, but it’s not tiny.  Nicely decorated too.  The “Today’s menu” Philly Cheesesteak pizza sign is always there, so it’s not like it’s a special. The seafood gumbo has… Continue reading Specialty Italian Bistro, Gretna, LA Report #66

The Olive Branch Cafe’, New Orleans, LA Report #53

Small place on the west bank of New Orleans with some really good food.  The marinara sauce served with the meatballs and angel hair pasta is light and delicious.  For $2.99 you can add what they call an 8″ garlic bread, but its more like a garlicky cheese pizza.  Very good. I’ve had the Pasta… Continue reading The Olive Branch Cafe’, New Orleans, LA Report #53

Vincent’s Italian Cuisine, New Orleans, LA Report #52

I’m not sure what happened.  I was just perusing past blogs and I realized Report #53, pictures and everything, was posted here!  Today is 4-28-2018 and I dined at Vincent’s back on 11-18-2017.  I’ll give a few thoughts about what I remember from that meal now.  I know it was great.  Always is at Vincent’s.… Continue reading Vincent’s Italian Cuisine, New Orleans, LA Report #52

Salute Italian Restaurant, Gulfport, MS Report #37

This is my favorite Italian restaurant in Gulfport, MS.  That could be because it’s the only Italian restaurant I’ve ever been to there, but no matter.  It’s good. The place is located right on Hwy. 90, which runs along the beach on the Mississippi Gulf coast.  The first pic is the sign you’d notice if… Continue reading Salute Italian Restaurant, Gulfport, MS Report #37

R&O’S, Metairie, LA Report #31

    This place is only about two blocks from the New Orleans city line in an old part of Metairie called Bucktown.  Bucktown began as a string of hunting and fishing camps over 100 years ago.  Lake Pontchartrain is right across the street.  I wouldn’t call it an Italian place but there’s no shortage… Continue reading R&O’S, Metairie, LA Report #31
