Always visit when I am in Shreveport

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

Visited this restaurant as a recommendation from a local and it turned out to be a great choice. Their sauce is definitely tasty provided that you don't mind a slightly sweet tomato sauce. The twice-baked lasagna was phenomenal!

My wife & I were driving thru and decided to get some Italian food. The spaghetti with sauce was great, the muffalatta (sp) was unbelievable. Service was ok. BUT the ICE machine in the dining room was very noisy and distracting even aggravating, and came close to running the meal

Leaving Medica Center just at lunchtime, we thought of Monjunis. Crowded, noisy and wonderful. People everywhere, good smelling foods and hot steaming meatballs in a great sauce with crisp toasts. Italian? I don't know nor care. It is alway a lovely little lunch in a delightful city full of surprises if you get out and find them.

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

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
