Some of the negative reviews on this place are ridiculous. I bet they come from people who, instead of getting a bottle of wine, drink water or diet coke all night. The chicken parm is fantastic. Take it from me because I am a true Sicilian, Italian food doesn't get any better. Evert time I visit shreveport from Dallas I... More

My husband and I tried this restaurant. Ordered the chicken Parmesan which came with spaghetti... It was so Bland that no matter how much Parmesan cheese you put on it it did not improve the flavor.. Should have realized there was going to be a problem when they didn't even have fresh Parmesan cheese to put on the entree. It... More

This is an excellent local small and quaint Italian restaurant. I have been going here for 25 plus years and still love it.

Seriously I forgot all about this little gem. We were on our way to another restaurant, and upon discovering it was closed opted for L'italiano. Great for us. Place is a little dark for early dining, but pasta was a delight and NO heavy creams both dishes were light and fresh. had the chocolate coffee cheese cake for dessert, excellent

While working in Shreveport I was told by many people and friends from the area to try one of the best and most authentic Italian restaurants in the area. So, being curious and loving great and authentic food as I do, I was inclined to try it. When you approach the restaurant it is quaint enough, aside from the location... More

Very small setting with limited parking, but the food is great. Have taken friends and celebrated special occasions there. Great service, too! Not too expensive, and delicious. Real Italian food!

I ate lunch here with friends and although there was only two other tables with patrons in the entire restaurant at the time, our waiter basically ignored us. For starters, bread was never brought to the table and, never having been here before, we did not know that bread was supposed to be included until we left and noticed bread... More

Ate here tonight on a business trip. If you come to the area often this restaurant should be on your list. Good food, pleasant ambiance and a knowledgable staff. Our waiter was professional and always there when needed. I had the zucchini fritte for an appetizer and the marinara was fantastic. Entree was the scampi lemone. Fresh, tasty but the... More

The food was delicious, light and of excellent taste. EVERYTHING was excellent and the fish dishes were superb. Great wines at reasonable prices (try the Italian... More

A classic Italian restaurant. I occasionally travel to Shreveport/Bossier for business and when I do, L'italiano is a restaurant that is at the top of my list. The food is consistently good, and they have a great selection of wines. On this trip my wife and I were celebrating the anniversary of the night we met. We were in Bossier,... More
