You won't find better prices anywhere in Baton Rouge. Red sauce is the best I have tasted. The restaurant is dark and a little dingy, but we loved the food and the experience.

My husband brought me here after I came home from living in Europe for two years. I loved it! It was a perfect little piece of Europe tucked away in Baton Rouge! The food was great and the service was very friendly!
