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.

G/F loves eating here but I'm not a fan of their sauce; it's a bit too sweet for my taste. The kids like it too so maybe it's just me. Give it a try and decide for yourself.

I don't get it. Must be surviving on its legacy. Food is 2nd rate. Dipping bread is stale. Semi-toasted warm on one edge, cold on the other. Had to ask for individual dishes of dipping sauce - served in styro-foam bowls. Most entrees slathered with their sweet sauce and melted cheese. Has what some might call "character"- accumulations from atmosphere... More

The wine is usually pretty good, atmosphere is great-- their lasagna and meatball po boy is excellent. They also do a generous portion of shrimp salad

The original Monjuni's on Louisiana Ave. is the best Italian food I've ever had. I always the the Italian Sampler which has spaghetti & meatballs, lasagna, and a quarter muffaletta. Always good food & good service.

Let me address several of the comments from other reviews I've read. Reviews that have prompted me into writing "this" Monjuni's has several locations. The one on Louisiana Ave is their First and original Restaurant. It's always been small, but it's always been packed with people sometimes standing outside the door. They line up for a reason, and it's because... More

Came to town to visit the in laws for the first time and this is the first place we stopped on our way from the airport. Read about it in advance and it certainly lived up to all the hype.

We lived in Shreveport for three years and visited for the first time in 17 years! Met dear friends at Monjuni's and it was just as good as we remembered! This was a favorite lunch spot and the Food, atmosphere and service are still very nice. The Italian specialties are homemade and very good..... the beef lasagna is excellent!

This is a local favorite. Although there are several other Monjunis locations in Shreveport-Bossier City, it is worth finding this, the original, for not only its atmosphere but food quality. Specialties include lasagna and meatballs. Excellent bread pudding and personal sized cakes too.

Loved the food and atmosphere. Probably my favorite place for dinner when I'm in Shreveport and in an Italian mood.
