Fine dining in Lafayette

This is a food-lover's destination in an area where good food is available all around. But Imonelli's is in a category of its own: delicious food, attentive services (Troy), atmosphere (white table cloths). The cocktails should be mentioned as well as the wine. We had gumbo, steak with... read more

Disclaimer; I'm not a Lafayette native but find this to be a good town for food. But I'm stunned that there're a couple of places the locals love that are terrible - transplant them to another town and they'd close in a week - this is one and LaFonda's the other. I'm shocked by the reviews that rave re the... More

We've been going to Imonelli's for years now. This is our go to place for anniversaries, birthdays, and a place to bring family, friends, and special out of town guests. Service is always top notch - well trained, very attentive, respectful, and they never make you feel rushed. Everything on the menu is worth trying. In my mind (my family... More

For years, I had received referrals from friends to visit this restaurant. After reading the reviews online, coupled with all those referrals, I must admit our expectations were very high. This MIGHT have slightly lessened our appreciation at the end of the night. We decided on iMonelli's for our 2015 Anniversary Dinner. Approaching the restaurant from the southwest on Lafayette's...

My Family & I have eaten here for many years, Most of us have been to Italy and this place will take you there, no doubt. The service is second to none, the atmosphere is superb, it is easy in & out if you go early, make reservations if you go @ rush times 6:30-8 for dinner. They will tell... More

Ate there on July 29, 2014. Had fantastic steak, it was very good. Mixed vegetables and a side salad. The next day I started feeling weak and on the 31st I was in the ER. Bad bacterial infection in my colon. August 7, 2014, still in hospital. They probably need to wash their lettuce better. But believe it or not,... More
