My wife and I are in town for the River Cities Triathlon and I needed my pre-race lasagna. We saw this place on TA so decided to check it out. We were drastically underdressed and did not have a reservation but they got us worked in quickly! Service and food were great! Highly recommend.

If you like Italian food you must visit this place. It looks like a little hole in the wall, but let me say some of the most wonderful food you will eat.

We were there for supper. Between us we had the lasagna and spaghetti and meatballs. The red sauce is really good. The bread us scrumptious and the creamy Italian dressing is Devine. We will definitely return.

We were very delighted to find this restaurant by happenstance. We were staying about two blocks away and were looking for an Italian restaurant and did we hit the jackpot. The meal was excellent and all sauces were prepared on site by the chef, so no fast food, chain meal. Chris, our waiter, was very attentive and experienced. It happened... More

The restaurant is now moving to the next generation, and they are doing well. It hasn't changed much in 30 years. Quaint, comfortable surroundings with nice art. Food is outstanding, and the wine list is very good. The price is very fair. We eat here at least 3x a month because it is true southern Italian food.

L’Italiano is a northwest Louisiana treasure. Even though most people can’t pronounce its name correctly (some just stop trying and inexplicably call it “Little Italy’), the food and atmosphere speak for themselves. There’s a reason this great Little Italian Restaurant has thrived in a relatively obscure setting. You don’t just happen upon this place; you must make a conscious decision... More

Found this place through Yelp! Good, honest food. The family running this restaurant is related to the family at Chianti - I tried them both and they are both on my list of places to hit next time in town. The walls are covered with names, initials, graffiti - when I took my glasses off it was a little bit... More

Just left after eating lunch. My husband said it was the best Shrimp Alfredo he had ever eaten. My veal parmigian was delicious. Everyone there was so friendly and the waiter was great and attentive. Found this place on Trip Advisor and definitely be back. I'm picky by the way!

So this restaurant is one of my favorite restaurants in Bossier City. I absolutely love the chicken parmesan. It's a small restaurant and the walls display the area's history. Every whose who has signed their name and left a message. Great lunch and dinner spot. Right across the street is Flying Heart Brewing and the Bossier Arts Council.
