Great experience, superb food, good ambiance, good wine list, smaller and cozy place. I would highly recommend this restaurant which I selected based on trip advisor ratings. I'd never been to Baton Rouge and needed some help picking a GOOD place to eat. Called ahead 15 mins and they had a table waiting for us on a Friday night!

This is a popular place and it's dining room is small , so make a reservation. Food seems fresh and not too heavy. I recommend the Lombardia, fresh spinach pasta with some shrimp. Crab cake appetizer comes with 3--enough for an entree. Salads are good. It's in the same shopping center as Office Depot, but on the side that faces... More

Simple and easy review. This little gem is tremendous. It is a small location; which for me is part of the reason I Love it. It is quaint, cozy, and efficient. The food is fresh, locally sourced and delicious. The portions are fair and fulling. The server who waited on us (Feb 10th 2017) was clearly a veteran. He knew... More

This is a nice place to have high-end Italian food. The restaurant is small so make a reservation. The food is good and consistent, although sometimes a bit too salty. The downside is that the lighting in the restaurant is so dim, most people have trouble reading the menu or appreciation the pretty presentation of the plates.

Hard to find but so glad I did! Everything is so fresh, and made from scratch in house! One of the best meals I've had in s very long time-and I eat out all the time in my work travels. My server Laney was awesome! I will definitely come back here the next time I'm in BRL!

Like a lot of nice restaurants in BR, this one is tucked unobtrusively in a plaza next to a UPS store and frozen yogurt place. We went on a game night with no reservation, thinking restaurants like this would in general be empty. We were wrong! But they found a spot for us anyway! this is excellent Italian style cuisine...

The husband and wife owners turn out a fresh, delicious, and consistent product that keeps my girlfriend and I coming back. The service is spot on and the food is extremely well priced for the quality. A must try.
