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.

We haven't been to Shreveport in a number of years but had a free Saturday afternoon and decided to drive over for a late lunch. Monjunis on Louisiana for Italian. It is well worth finding, located a block off Line Ave. just south of downtown. Shreveport changed tremendously when the casinos came to town and after finding do many independent... More

I've been to 2 different locations now (Airline drive and Yirree Dr) and still don't understand the attraction to this place. They offer a "sweet" sauce which tastes NOTHING like Italian pasta sauce. I think it's closer to a sweet chili sauce than a pasta sauce. I find their sauce non-palletable, or downright disgusting. The prices are high, the ambiance... More

Saw this restaurant on the Food Network a couple of years ago. This was our second time to eat there. Prices are fair and the portions are good. Go for the giant meatball.

We have eaten here for the last several years the night before the RiverCities Tri. Always good food and excellent value. I can never finish the whole plate of food due to the amount provided.
