7. Red Gravy @redgravynola -
Red Gravy may not seem like it would be the name for an Italian restaurant, but it is one of the best places to go for unique flavor blends and twist. Our favorite is the meatballs and eggs, where else can you find this type of combination?
6. Arabella Casa di Pasta @Arabellacasadipasta -
Arabella Casa di Pasta has a great name and great food to go along with it. What is really nice is the location is very cool to visit as well. What we really love about the place, though, is the spicy meatballs.
5. Avo @restaurantavo -
New Orleans is known for having hot soupy summers. However, what is nice about Avo is the fact the place does not have the heat on the patio that much. That is because the patio area for the restaurant is air conditioned. Our personal favorite dish from Avo is the Lasagna with the Burrata appetizer.
4. Mona Lisa @Mona-Lisa-NOLA -
Very relaxed and groovy location that takes a completely new take on the older classic Italian restaurants. The place is very relaxed and has artwork all over the restaurant. Our favorite dish from Mona Lisa is the Mardi Gras Pasta.
3. Domenica @DomenicaRestaurant -
Domenica is a place you will fall in love with. It has some of the comfort foods that you want to have, but it also has a great atmosphere that makes you feel like you are at home. The dish we love from the place is the Tortelli.
2. Mariza @MarizaNOLA -
When you look at Mariza you may think it is going to have a very upscale requirement. However, you will be shocked that Mariza is a very casual location that has some fantastic pricing. Off of the menu our favorite dish is the short ribs rigatoni.
1. Paladar 511 @paladar511 -
When you look at Paladar you will notice it has the fine dining experience that everyone seems to love. When you eat here you also will notice it is going to have some great food to eat as well. Our favorite dish from Paladar 511 is the carpaccio.
