Classic Italian Café/Bistro

Great wine list, with fairly knowledgeable staff. The dinner menu is extensive and there was something for everyone - with a group of 14-16 that is not always easy - and the servers were very good about separate checks. My minestrone soup was quite nice - perfect broth with just the right amount of... read more

It's been around for years and the quality of the food has been consistently great! Very romantic, quaint place with art (for sale) on the walls all by local artists. The food is fantastic. My favorite has always been the linguine with a white clam sauce, oh so scrumptious! The chicken Marsala I had there is fantastic too. The deserts... More

I had the chicken parm and the sauce was excellent. How they make the sauce is a secret - I asked and the waiter responded with a smile that he couldn't reveal it. Highly recommend it.

The food is like eating speghetti at home not really special one would think. I know I have no desire to go back to this place again.. to me it is as though someones needs to... More

I'll keep it short and sweet - been coming here for the last 3 years that I've lived here and it is the best! All of the food is excellent - the fish specials, the pasta, the appetizers, and the wine. We go here for special occasions, date nights, and when family is in town.

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 recited the special. The prices were... 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.

This place has fresh and classic options. A traditional vision of Italian dishes. Very tasty and the service is incredibly good. Attentive and personal. If you stop by Bossier, you should a recommended stop by!!
