AAA Inspector Notes
Beloved by locals, a little off the beaten path, small charming dining rooms and attentive servers characterize this popular eatery. The menu of excellent food features a range of Creole-Italian dishes with such entrées as fish meunière, chicken Rosemarino, roast duck and veal Marsala. The wait may be long as very few reservations are accepted, so make them well in advance. However, there is a small waiting area with a piano player and drink service. Dinner typically begins with complimentary bruschetta. Next, order the Oysters Irene which are perfectly baked in their shell with Romano cheese, pancetta, and pimento. Finish with the sweet tiramisu or bananas foster bread pudding.
