Small and intimate, Fausto's Bistro has been serving traditional Sicilian-Italian fare to the same happy customers for many years. The loyal, well-heeled crowd comes mainly from the nearby affluent neighborhood of Old Metairie, elevating the atmosphere of this otherwise casual spot. The small tables are set close together, as are the stools along the abbreviated bar, adding to the friendly romance that fills the dining room. A beautiful mural dominates the decor, covering one entire wall, while a colorful collection of plates runs along the perimeter of the restaurant. Two Sicilian brothers, Fausto and Roland di Pietro, run the place, and the menu features their mother's original recipes. Veal saltimbocca with marsala wine and prosciutto is a favorite, as is the frutti di mare(seafood). Don't forget to save room for dessert -- the tiramisu will knock your socks off. -- Stella Hebert (Photo: Kathleen Parker
To Papa & Mama
Who first taught us to appreciate the good food we encountered
after many years of living, eating and cooking Italian.
Pasta, olive oil, gardens of fresh herbs and garlic, seafood, veal
and poultry, have always been the glory of Italian and Sicilian food.
As one of the healthiest and most natural cuisines,
we encourage you to eat and enjoy to your heart’s content.
Fausto and Rolando welcome you to dine Italian style.
Buon Appetito !
