Italian Hall is a building on Esplanade Avenue in the French Quarter of New Orleans, Louisiana, USA.

The original structure was built as a private mansion in 1835. In 1920 it was extensively remodeled and a new central fascade added by the Union Italiana, and for decades it was used by fraternal organizations of the Italian-American community of the city. The hall hosted events, including dances to such jazz bands as the New Orleans Rhythm Kings. It was also rented out to recording companies which visited New Orleans in the 1920s, and records by jazz, blues, country, etc artists were made here, including sessions by Jimmie Rogers and the Jones-Collins Astoria Hot 8.

In the second half of the 20th century the building was renovated into an apartment building.
