Tucked away in downtown Lafayette is this very nice Italian restaurant. Expansive menu offers something for everyone. Good for groups, families or date night. Good sized portions. Service was great.

We’ve eaten here many times through the years and usually enjoyed a very good meal. This time three of us were seated between two large tables of noisy diners and it detracted from an otherwise enjoyable evening. And for some reason someone made several trips...More
