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.

This is a favorite dining place for my son and his family. We have had many birthday celebrations here. Portions are large! I personally enjoy the poboys. My husband loves the shrimp cheese toast appetizer. It is sufficient for his meal.

Monjuni's is great if you're after the 1960's sort of middle-brow, mid-Western take on Italian. It's not bad, it's just not that great--though it is good, solid comfort food if you want a dependable version of that sort of take on Italian. Case in point: my last visit there was for the lasagna, which some older relatives had raved about.... More

We just ate here for lunch and got lunch specials. The food (Beef Lasagna and Spaghetti w meatball) was great and it came fast. I'm a little bummed the server didn't share the lunch special w us.

Monjunis offers a different take on their sauces. If you like the sweet red sauce this would be great for you. I like a little more italian kick in my food. The original Monjuni's on Louisiana Blvd is probably the better of them all but all the food is about the same. The original seems to have more of an... More

We have been away from Shreveport (my home town) for a few years and made sure that we went back to one of our favorite restaurants. While the sauce may be a little too sweet for some folks out there for me it is wonderful. The atmosphere he is great, the food some of the absolute best around and the... More

I have had almost everything on the menu and never been disappointed. The muffulettas are one of my favorites. The salads are big enough for 2. The best part is you can take home a bottle of their sweet sauce.
