Whether you like it with chicken, shrimp, or by itself, New Orleans has plenty of Italian places to order fettuccine alfredo. Here's are five local restaurants where you can order some for National Fettuccine Alfredo Day on February 7.
Pizza isn't the only thing you'll find on the menu! Located on Carrollton Avenue in Mid City, Venezia puts a Creole twist on its Italian cuisine. Lasagna, fried calamari, and muffulettas are just a few of the many items that'll leave your mouth watering. They also serve fettuccine alfredo, which can be served alone, with chicken or shrimp, or with the Eggplant Vatican, which is served with shrimp and crawfish in a creamy crabmeat sauce. If you've saved room for dessert, visit Angelo Brocato nearby for some homemade gelato, tiramisu, and cannoli! 134 N. Carrollton Ave., 504-488-7991, venezianeworleans.net
If last year's summer makes you feel nostalgic, visit Landry's Seafood House for some fresh Gulf seafood fare. While Louisiana has three locations, you'll want to visit Landry's Lake Charles location if you want some fettuccine.

Pair it with a shrimp cocktail, house salad, and a glass of N'awlins Punch. 2550 Golden Nugget Blvd., Lake Charles, 337-508-4106, landrysseafood.com
