Dined here for the second time this month and always know what to expect. Decent portions, delicious food and friendly staff. There's a reason restaurants stay in business this long...especially in New Orleans. Don't hesitate to check it out.

The red sauce was great. Had veal and it was tender. The service was very good also. The place was small but not overcrowded. The wine was good and drinks just fine. Would have given 5 star but bread was store bought with cheese on...More

Whatever you order, the food has always been good. Lunch entrees come with a salad. There are no sandwiches on the menu. There is a soup du jour. Service was excellent.

What in the world has happened to Fausto's? Over the years, it has been a consistently decent place where you could count on decent Italian food. Tonight earned them a spot on my permanent restaurant time out list. First, the breadsticks--Costco breadsticks--two cut in half,...More

I love trying mom & pop restaurants. Their chicken alfredo is delicious. It's a cozy place and the staff is very helpful.

To be fair, I've been eating here at least 15 years and know Roland and Fausto as a long time customer. It's more of a local's place than a tourist restaurant, but that's the beauty of New Orleans. They have the usual Italian fare, but...More

This quaint venerable Metairie establishment can easily be overlooked cruising down Veterans Boulevard. Don't be misled by the somewhat spartan appearance of the building. Once inside, you'll find a warm and charming character that has made this a favorite among Metairie residents that have a...More

Grazie to Papa & Mama who first taught us appreciate the good food we encountered after many years of living, eating and cooking Italian. Pasta , olive oil, gardens of fresh herbs and garlic, seafood , veal and poultry have always been the glory of Italian and Sicilian food. Fausto and Rolando invite and welcome you to dine Italian style! Serving proudly since 1990 !!
