Tortorici's Italian Restaurant is a place in New Orleans. It is the French Quarter's oldest Italian restaurant, serving 95 years of traditional Italian and Creole cooking. It is located at 441 Rue Royal (corner of Royal & St.Louis). Even though most fine dining restaurants in New Orleans require jackets for gentlemen, this place does not. That didn't turn me off at all, as I loved it, and will come back for more when I can. I have visited three times in the past. The place just keeps getting better and better. I love it a lot. On their website, http://www.tortoricis.com/ www.tortoricis.com, you can take a virtual video tour. That was amazing, and I loved it very much. You may also make reservations, ask questions, see their menus, and a lot more. The food is not cheap, so please do come prepared. I loved the Tortorici's Trio (beef tenderloin medallion topped with a mushroom sauce, chicken breast with a Creole crawfish sauce, Louisiana shrimp scampi with pasta and vegetable), the Veal Picatta (tender baby veal sauteed with white wine, garlic, mushrooms and capers served with pasta and a vegetable), and the Rack of Lamb (grilled lamb chops served with a Madeira mint sauce, Italian roasted potatoes and chef's vegetable). I have had each of these on a previous visit. I will try something different on my next visit, even though what I had before was perfect. Visit this restaurant. It's awesome.
