THE BEST VEAL ON THE PLANET !!!

Chef Duke Locicero has a real ""way"" with Italian food, especially veal. I never thought I would ever say this (heavy sigh) but his Paneed Veal is better than my (family recipe handed down through my Caprise great-grandmother) veal. Chef Duke obviously uses milk-fed baby whiteveal, pounds each piece to soft perfection and applies the ideal seasoning, wash, bread crumbs, etc., to achieve heaven moist with olive oil... view more

A different Restaurant

This restaurant is quite different fromn the usual French Quarter style. The location is good and there is plentiful parking nearby. The restaurant is fairly small but accomadates large and small parties. The food was very good. We had duck, veal and drum. It is quite pricey. The music is very different as they only sing in italian. The singers walk around the restaurant and sing at every table, the negative is ... view more

Very romantic

Bravo Chef Duke:\r Chef Duke made our first trip back to New Orleans since katrina wonderful. My husband was a bit disappointed when he did not see his favorite dish on the Menu but was more than happy to try something new. Our waiter talked with Chef Duke and he came out to our table and offered to fix it for him. It was fantastic....worth the trip from Wisconsin alone. The atmosphere is incredible. We had a wonder... view more

Overrated!

I ate here on Friday, July 23 and was not impressed. Oysters Giovanni was average at best-- oysters were plump and perfectly cooked, but the sauce was nothing spectacular-- a few swirls of ginger, apricot, and raspberry purees intertwined which an unimpressive result. Service was great, opera singer was a nice touch. Food sucked. The spaghetti dish I ordered as well as the veal dish my girlfriend ordered were jus... view more

awesome dining experience

My husband and I love to try different resteraunts. I found Cafe Giovanni on the internet and it seemed like it would be an interesting place to eat. The service was wonderful and the food was very good. We had the Oyster Giovanni for an appetizer and the oysters were the best I have ever tasted. The atmosphere was lively and I thouroughly enjoyed the opera singing. It was such a wonderful experience I plan to g... view more

New World Italian

This was a great all around experience. The food was fantastic. The chef and wait staff were attentive. The singers entertaining, and the atmosphere suitable for romance or business. It will be one of my favorites.

Bella, Bella

The cusine is excellent. I refer to it as gourmet Italian with a contemporty flair. Innovative and wonderful! The atmosphere is romantic and the opera singing waiters are bellisimo! A thouroughly delightful, romantic dining experience.

What a Feast!

We were treated to a feast of food that had only one problem. There was actually too much food. Each course built upon the last and unfortunately, the last course was the best. By then, we were all uncomfortably full. Of course, there was that little spot left for dessert. I would like to return and eat just the garlic toast, a salad and dessert. It was an incredible meal!
