I have been a fan of village and now the little village for 40 years. The problem with the one downtown is parking during the daytime and huge crowds. I recommend going at night and enjoying the good food and the lack of a rush

The little village is a little pricey, but you get what you pay for. Attire is a little more dressy, but the service and the food are so good. Definitely a fine dining experience in Baton Rouge.

Absolutely love this Italian place. It has a very low key ambience which is just what we look for in date night. The bread and oil is to die for. Totally love going there!

Casual is fine if you are going tailgating. For a party wear fancy jeans and tops or a cute attire. Local boutiques and stores carry a great selection. Just make sure you were the right colors: purple and goal and have... More
