Our Story

The Royal House building has been a French Quarter icon for over 100 years. It was originally built as a family home, but the first floor was soon converted into a thriving restaurant, Tortorici’s. At a time when few Italian restaurants in New Orleans served anything more interesting than spaghetti, Tortorici’s stood out with its dishes of scampi, veal, and fish. It became one of the longest running restaurants in the city, alongside its fellow French Quarter icons— Galatoire’s, Arnaud’s, Antoine’s, and Broussard’s—until its ultimate closure after Hurricane Katrina. In 2008, the Ammari brothers bought the restaurant, restored it, and reopened it as Royal House. Over a decade later, we’re still serving up delicious Cajun and Creole cuisine to locals and tourists alike.
