IRENE'S CUISINE
539 St. Philip St. 529-8811
Consistently named among the most romantic restaurants of New Orleans, Irene's is cozy and cute and cast in what's known in bachelor's pads as Òmood lighting.Ó Italian food is on the menu, and the eatery is known for its soft-shell crab pasta and oysters Irene with pancetta and Romano cheese. A wait is likely, so patience is required on your uber-romantic jaunt. No reservations. Dinner Mon.-Sat. Credit cards. $$

IRIS
8115 Jeannette St. 862-5848
Iris is situated in two rooms of a New Orleans-style house that formerly hosted the Mango House. The 11 tables make it a cozy and comfortable neighborhood bistro, and its American-contemporary cuisine is a departure from the traditional Creole fare found at many of our neighborhood restaurants. Recent menu items — the menu changes every few days — included bluepoint oysters on the half shell with accoutrements, and an appetizer of handmade ravioli filled with braised veal cheeks. Reservations recommended. Dinner Mon.-Sat. Credit cards. $$

ISABELLA'S PIZZERIA
4250 Hwy. 22, Mandeville (985) 674-5700; 70452 Hwy. 21, Covington (985) 875-7620
Gourmet pizza is what's on the menu at this budding Northshore chain, and a casual atmosphere means the entire family is welcome. Spinach or artichoke with pesto or garlic-herb sauce fool youngsters into eating their vegetables; heartier appetites might choose the 16-inch Isabella pizza, which is laden with everything. Reservations accepted for large groups. Delivery available. Lunch and dinner daily. Credit cards. $$

ITALIAN PIE
417 S. Rampart St. 522-7552; 901 Veterans Memorial Blvd., Metairie 832-1121; 1530 Lapalco Blvd., Harvey 362-3657; 3600 Williams Blvd., Kenner 469-4999; 4350 Hwy. 22, Mandeville (985) 626-5252; 5406 Veterans Memorial Blvd., Metairie 887-9977; 5538 Magazine St. 894-0005; 5650 Jefferson Hwy., Harahan 734-3333; www.italianpierestaurants.com
For delivery pizza, many New Orleanians turn to Italian Pie rather than the national chains. Their extensive menu offers not only pizzas, but pasta dishes and sandwiches as well. Nonetheless, pizza is the star of the show. No reservations. Delivery available at some locations. Hours vary with locations. Credit cards. $
