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

A client directed me to this little spot close to downtown Bossier City. The area itself is not very nice, but the restaurant and service was great. Granted it was a Tuesday, but the service was prompt and the food was wonderful. I will go back and take more friends.

This is a small local Italian restaurant in a not so good part of town. The service person was polite and saw well to our needs. We ordered off the menu and were not blown away by the food but were by the prices. They offered some specials but we chose the menu entrees. They seem to do a good... More

My boyfriend and I recently chose L'italiano to celebrate our anniversary. We both love Italian food and were so excited to try this new place. I was impressed with how quickly we were greeted and seated, but unfortunately, that's where it ended. The bread was stale and very hard to chew. Our meals were a disappointment to say the least....

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!
