The staff were very friendly, but that is where the good stuff ends. The food tasted like it had been cooked prior to our arrival. At an Italian restaurant, you do expect somewhat of a wait for lasagna and shrimp spaghetti - we barely waited 10 minutes for our food to arrive. To our dismay, the noodles in the spaghetti... More

I always go to Monjunis when I visit family in Shreveport. Their spaghetti and meatballs is the best.

Sauce was a shocker at first. Sweet. But, it grows on you and it is the closest thing we can find to a good fresh Italian style dinning place. The bread, sauce and meat ball is a find.

Decent food that hit the spot for what I was craving. The red sauce is sweet, which I personally like but some don't. I really liked their home made Italian dressings for the salad too, tried both the creamy and regular and both were delicious. Portion sizes are very generous. I would definitely go back.

I liked this restaurant the first time I went but the second time I went the service was not good, the waiter didn't care about anything I said, and the price for ravioli was ridiculous for 6 raviolis, something like $13. CRAZY! I won't return

There are a number of locations for this restaurant. This is the original location and has always been my favorite as far as the food and the atmosphere. On my recent visit, I had a waiter who seemed like it was a burden to have to be serving us. It is not at all what I was accustomed to experiencing... More

I like Italian, but this wasn't Italian. Had the lasagna, wouldn't do that again. Not as good as Stouffer's grocery store brand. Wife had a Venitian Chicken Salad. She said it was ok. Without the dressing the chicken had no "Venitian" flavor. Waiter couldn't have cared less about us being there. Not going back.

The Muffaletta is the best sandwich I have ever had. Better than central grocery in New Orleans. Nice people good service. Will defiantly go back.
