Visited this landmark one time and that was one time too many. They make their muffuletta with bologna and not much else. It is a very over priced bologna sandwich. It is a nice old building to look at, lots of history on the walls. The owners are extremely nice and friendly. Just don't go there expecting a wonderful Italian... More

This Deli has the very best Muffulettas in Shreveport. They have been in the same location for decades. Worth the ride from any of the hotels. All try, none compare.

I must say that after trying alot of other places for an original muffaletta sandwich this place is by far the most original and flavor filled muffaletta ever....Its a family owned business and they treat you like family

I live in Shreveport and this place is amazing. They specialize in their muffaletta sandwiches which is the best I have ever had. Usually we order them every Saturday before the LSU football game so we can all feast. They also sell salads, pizza, meatball subs and other kinds of sandwiches. All food is very fresh and they even have... More

The atmosphere was great, it brought back so many memories from the old grocery store in my town. The owners were wonderful, had such a great conversation with them about the history of the place and the incredible "muffy" sandwich. This truly was the highlight of my trip. (It is hard to find these kind of wonderful places.)

I have been going to Fertitta's for lunch for many years and the muffy's were always the best. And the quality was consistent. I went there on July 27 and ordered a large muffy which feeds at least 2 people. We were told that they no longer sell the large muffy because the company or person that provided the bread... More

Fertitta"s has been in Shreveport forever! It is a 1950's deli that is an old neighborhood very close to downtown. You will find one of the finest Muffaletta sandwichs bar none

Fertitta's has been in Shreveport since the beginning. They offer an amazing meatball sub and "muffys" that are worth the calories. You are not from Shreveport if you haven't been here. They are only open for lunch on weekdays- so plan accordingly.

Relaxing lunch in a venue that lets you travel back in time to the 50's-60's era. The mint tea and chips are an interesting twist, but the mufaletta is as good as it gets. Always enjoy this stop.

It's like walking into an old fashioned Italian Deli...still owned by the same family. Home to the famous "Muffy" Italian sandwich...and the mint iced tea is great too.
