“Italian outside of New Orleans”
Reviewed 12 February 2013

So, it is actually pretty difficult to find a decent Italian restaurant outside of New Orleans. However, after the first visit to Fausto's we knew that we didn't need to look any further. It is a good idea to make a reservation, as the space is tiny. Once you are seated at a table, there is no rush for you to leave, even if there are parties waiting for tables. The restaurant seems to be filled with regulars that know the owners whenever we are there. They put a big effort into making sure you are having a good dinner and experience.

My husband and I love to go here for date night. Delicious food and great atmosphere! Location is also easy to find as it is right on Veterans Hwy.

“Our favorite Italian restaurant in the area”
Reviewed 15 October 2012

There are several good or great Italian restaurants in Metairie, but this is the best. Love the veal saltimbocca. Great specials when available include softshell crab with crawfish pasta and linguini with clams.

“Great food!!!”
Reviewed 17 August 2012

I have never been disappointed when I've eaten here. The food is always delicious, the service is good, the prices are reasonable and the portions are generous. This is the "win-win" restaurant for Italian food.
