I was greeted warmly by the infamous owner. I started to look at the menu board and inquired about a 1/2 muffaletta. He said, "Sir, I am sorry but we do not have muffalettas today. We discovered that the olive salad has seeds/pits in it."...More

This is a ma and pa restaurant with fabulous food and a unique old Italian atmosphere. Cash or check only. Nothing fancy, but good food with large portions.

Crowded atmosphere, loud place, average food. Will not visit this place again! Nothing that reflects the real Italian food!

First stop in Baton Rouge to get a muffaletta. It's enough for 2 hungry people or 4 people so don't be shocked that they're $15.
