It's an understatement to say that unless you are looking for fried seafood, there isn't better food in LaPlace. Not that I've found anyway. I've had two different salads, two different pasta dishes, my husband has had the steak and the pork chop. Nothing disappointed. So fresh and delicious! And the service is great also. Highly recommend!

We had a group eat here for New Year's Eve. We all enjoyed our food and service. No complaints. We all want to go back.

The food was passable for Italian food. I've had much better in Shreveport, LA at Ernest's Supper club, Shorty's and Sansone's restaurant.I mentioned north LA because even though we expect tasty food in south LA, the Italian food down here is not as good as it could be. Rotolo's was better than this.

I had a the Lemon Chicken with a Caesar salad and pasta with Alfredo sauce, the food was piping hot and delicious. The service isn't extreme fast, but efficient. The restaurant is very clean.

I really liked Petra when we first started to go there. The veggies were cooked right & quite yummy. That said, they could use an update on their menu, and it's limited. After a few visits, you feel like you've experienced everything they have to offer. Also, although I liked the veggies, they are always the SAME... never change and... More

We found this place years ago and the food was great. I planned coming to dinner for my wife's birthday and was disappointed. The service was excellent. Salad and hot french bread before main course were good. I had the Blackened Catfish which was overcooked. My wife had the Snapper which was too salty. The vegetable were good as well... More

Very nice atmosphere. Wonderful friendly helpful service. Poor quality steak, tough and chewy. Might have seemed better if the steak knives were sharpened, but was not much better than a butter knife. The steak was of a low grade quality, equal to those found at local bars on steak-night. I will return, but order the seafood or pasta dishes instead......... More

My family stumbled upon this place after visiting one of the nearby plantations, and I don't think I've ever had such a good meal at a place I just happened upon. The oysters almondine we ordered as an appetizer is the best I have ever had--fried to a lovely golden brown and seasoned perfectly. I savored every one of them.... More
