Don't order Diavolo!

We visited as two couples for a Valentine's Day dinner. The restaurant was nice inside - much nicer than it appeared from the street. Our table was ready as promised, and we were greeted politely. Our waiter did his job, but could only be described as surly. He was not friendly, even as he... read more

We've been here before with much better results, but this (lunch) visit was disappointing in both food and service. Waiter was friendly & attentive but forgot orders and confused checks. Food was (surprisingly) bland.

Everything was tasty. We had the crab claw appetizer and thought it was very unique and we loved the taste. G/f had risotto with shrimp and crawfish (i forget the Italian name) and i had the tortellini. We enjoyed both dishes a lot. The dining room was properly lit with candles on each table which made the room very cozy.... More

I have eaten Veal Marsala on the east coast and on the west coast as well as Rome but this is by far the best. O K it is not in the best location but once inside white tablecloths clean and great staff. There is not an extensive menu but read just below the last entrée it says they prepare... More

I was hungry and craving Italian food when my plane landed in Shreveport, Louisiana. I looked on the internet and found some recommendations for this restaurant. I couldn't have made a better choice! The pasta I had was wonderfully prepared. The sauce and meatballs were great, the salad (incredible creamy Italian dressing) was wonderful, and the bread perfect! I would... More

We had my daughters Wedding Rehearsal Dinner here in July of 2014. The party was small and the reservations were perfect. Paul was extremely helpful to make sure all of our needs were met and the food was perfect. Everybody in attendance had wonderful things to say about the food and service. Perfect evening. Will highly recommend to friends.

This is our son-in-laws favorite Italian restaurant. In the last year, we have been here twice. He is well-known here so we receive excellent care, service and food. The owner even sang a few bars from an opera for us. The wine recommended by our waiter was the best I have had in a long time. A sampling of various... More
