In New Orleans for French Quarter Festival and had a taste for pizza so I Tripadvisor for recommendations. The Olive Branch lives up to it's positive reviews. Very good thin crust pizza, friendly service. It's BYOB and they were very nice getting us wine glasses and a cork screw. I wouldn't hesitate to try their other dishes after our experience.

The lunch specials are really reasonable and plenty of food. We got the citrus chicken wrap and the citrus salad and they were excellent.

My husband and I got seafood pasta dishes and garlic bread. They were excellent. The atmosphere was a little noisy and the tables are close together. But the food makes up for it.

Neighbourhood Profile
Sitting pretty across the Mississippi River from the rambunctious French Quarter, the Crescent City’s second oldest neighborhood is as historic and as scenic as any – just a lot less showy about it. With its numerous 19th and early 20th century homes and plentiful parks and riverside green space for cycling and walking, subdued and low key Algiers yields the best views of New Orleans and offers a quiet haven from the hustle and bustle in other parts of town. Most of the area’s activity, for visitors anyway, takes place at Algiers Point where the famous Canal Street / Algiers Ferry has been the main attraction since 1827 and is still giving folks one of the best rides in town at very affordable rates. Restaurants, bars and music venues here all but guarantee the utmost of authentic experiences sans any hype or high prices.
