MISSISSIPPI BURNING - NOT WORTH IT !!!!!!!!
My friends and I went to this restaurant thinking we might find a great restaurant in an unlikely area.
We were SO wrong. We should have walked out immediately had we realized we were walking back in time to Mississippi in the 1950s. Needless to say, this is definitely worse than Mississippi Burning.
First off, the service was deplorable and on a scale of 1-10 with 10 being the best, it would be in the negative number. We were intentionally ignored while other ""patrons"" who came in after us got such better service. Of course, the only thing different between us and the other patrons were the color of our skins. Sad to say, these things still exist in Metairie. Let's not even mention the food which was mediocre at best. I rather eat at Burger King, at least you can have it your way and they don't care how you look like. The service is always the same. (at burger king).
This restaurant prides itself in the ""trattoria"" Italian cooking; however, they could have save everyone the trouble by being honest and just hanging a Confederate Flag or a burning cross next to the open sign.
I bet the people who works in the nail salon next to them wouldn't give a rave review either.
In addition, the waiter needs special mentioning. ""Zack"" or whatever his name was who waited on us, needs to either be fired or someone needs to let him know that it's 2007 not the 1950s and that he should treat all paying customers the same way. He's lucky that he even receives a tip from us.
I definitely would NOT RECOMMEND this hell hole to anyone, even my friends of different colors.
