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

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!!

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
