I know it is hard to mess up an Italian dish, but it is hard to consistently make it perfect. Bistro 301's Tortalini Diablo is the Bomb! Constantly! I also love Kenny the Bartender - always knows the right drink to pour.

After a great trip on the Belle of Louisville we found Bistro 301. What a pleasant surprise. Good atmosphere, excellent service, children's menu, and fabulous adult entries also. A must return place next time in Louisville.

This place was a lifesaver! We stopped at the Spaghetti Factory across the street, terrible service and atmosphere so we left and walked into Bistro 301. So welcoming and homey. We had the spicy tortellini (vegetarian) and fettuccine Alfredo both amazing meals! Nice quiet atmosphere....More

Stopped in for a light dinner and were impressed with the food,prices and service. Had a small issue with one of the appetizers and without us asking ,the waiter got the manager who comped the food. Would go again.
