Yet another one of my favorite restaurant in Louisville! For someone who isn't into carbs, I'd make an exception for Decca because they have some of the best pasta dishes there is! While the dishes do change seasonally, my favorite will always be the pasta with the minced rabbit (for the life of me I cannot remember the name now).... More

If you are in the Louisville area, Decca is a must! The staff is wonderful, and Nate and Annie will make sure you leave satisfied! I am taking my hubby down there from Chicago, just to have dinner with them again! Be sure to check out the "speak easy" style bar in the basement and visit the Library if it... More

In Louisville for the Louisville Ballet. We were meeting friends before the show and wanted a light yet full meal so that we would be able to enjoy the show. DECCA seemed to fill the bill. We had been there more years ago than we want to admit. Reservations were easy, table space before the show was perfect. The staff... More

Looking for a good dinner we travelled down to Decca's upon an associate’s referral, sounded like a good idea. ......................It was. Staff were amazing, very attentive and knowledgable about the small, but well done menu. I had the chicken, excellent choice. Others tried the shrimp which was apparently fantastic. Great little spot, with jazz downstairs later in the night. Hit... More

Doesn't sound appealing but it is! Great decor, good drinks and appetizers! And if that isn't enough, old black and white movies will convince you it was worth the visit!

Located in the heart of the NuLu district this is a charming restaurant with a wide array of choices (broken down into starter, middle, entree, and "for the table" portions). The food was very good albeit a little more expensive...2 had the wild shrimp, 1 the trout, and 1 the mussels. Service was exceptional.

Once again I wasn't disappointed! Great downstairs bar with great cocktails. Dinner with out of town family was wonderful. Salad was fresh, shrimp was perfect. My wife always orders her favorite, the mussels. Great evening.

It is difficult to decide where to eat in Louisville if you are visiting because there are so many choices and the reviews are not easy to wade through. I'm so glad that we decided to go to Decca! The female chef is from Asheville, NC (another nice foodie destination) and she is very talented. I ordered mussels for my... More
