About Us

Amici Ristorante's Private Reception Venue is located above Amici Ristorante and Bar in New Orleans' Garden District. The bar and restaurant is known for its authentic coal-fired pizza and fine Italian fare. The addition of Amici Ristorante's Private Reception Venue on the 2nd floor pairs the already great food with an 1,800-square-foot reception hall. Its close proximity to the Audubon Nature Institute allows for the couple to have their ceremony and reception within a three-mile radius.

The event space is ideal for wedding receptions with as many as 150 guests. Floor-to-ceiling stained-glass windows overlook historic Magazine Street and the venue is punctuated by an exposed brick wall, a wood bar and stone fireplace. A red accent wall stands parallel to the stained-glass windows and gives a warm and cozy ambience when paired with the black-linen tablecloths, gold-backed chairs and red and white flowers in crystal vases.


What You Should Know

Amici Ristorante's Private Reception Venue provides full bar and catering services for any event. The bar boasts specialty cocktails, frozen liquors and 30 beers on tap. Although the restaurant below might still be open during the reception, the couple and their guests will be transported to a remote Sicilian village with one bite of the delectable food.

The food menu includes traditional Italian appetizers, such as bruschetta, flash-fried calamari with marinara sauce and eggplant rollatini. Salads include Caprese, Caesar and a classic chopped salad. Entrees allow for customization with chicken, veal, vegetables or eggplant in marsala, parmigiana or piccata sauce.

No Italian menu would be complete without pasta and pizza. Amici Ristorante's Private Reception Venue serves favorites, such as fettuccine alfredo and penne alla vodka. The coal-fired pizza, cooked in a custom-built 1,100-degree oven that gives the dough a nice charred edge, can be topped with feta, gorgonzola or ricotta cheese and pepperoni, ham or Italian sausage.

The dessert menu includes cannoli, tiramisu and even fried Oreos with a scoop of gelato. The meals can be served sit-down style for up to 30 guests or buffet-style for any larger parties with the help of a dedicated serving staff. Tables, chairs, flatware and glasses are also included.
