Took my wife and daughter there for their birthday (same day). Atmosphere is very nice, service cheerful and professional. Food was presented very nicely, and no complaints, but really, no WOW. Nothing really made you want to come back-food was almost bland, but again, nicely prepared and presented. For the price, I would have expected more snap. Could be personal preference.

Been there a couple of time and have yet to be dissapointed. The service has been good and the food very tasty. The price can be a little on the high side, but it is worth it.

Good Italian food, but not what you might see at the average Italian restaurant. I like the options of small/large plates so you can try a couple different things. The small plates are definitely large enough to be entrees. The assorted cheese appetizer was great!

This is by far the best Italian restaurant in the Shreveport/Bossier area. It never lets you down... consistent excellent food, service, and atmosphere. The food is ALL handmade, including the pastas, and this is readily apparent in every dish. This freshness is found in every delicious bite. Giuseppe must be a wizard!

My favorite dishes would be Spinach Tagliolini and "to die for" raspberry soufle (although the chocolate is a close second in soufles). Order dessert early as it takes about 15 minutes on a soufle because it is "from scratch" ... worth the wait though if you forget.

Try some of the different gelato martinis. Relax and unwind in the bar. The band playing jazz and "oldies" is excellent, and regularly provides great music. When the weather is nice, the patio makes a great after-work meeting place.

This restaurant should not be considered ONLY on special occasions, but should be a regular pilgrimage to fine food, excellent service, and an overall fantastic dining experience.

We went mid week, place was nearly deserted except for a business meeting. It took too long of a time for our waitress to show up, we almost decided to leave. But after service started, there was no problem.

For cocktails we had a dirty martini and lemon drop martini, vodka. Both were good but both very strong. One is enough. We had eggplant parmesan and wedge salad for appetizers. Eggplant parmesan was excellent and could have been an entree of itself. Nice blend of cheese and tomato sauce. Wedge salad was nothing exceptional, standard salad. Main course was macaroni bell pepper and sausage pasta dish. The macaroni was large size, soft and tender. A mixture of sweet bell peppers, crisp to the bite, and Italian sausage. All covered in a tomato sauce. Very pleasing comfort food. For dessert the chef made a Grand Marnier soufflé that is not typically on the menu. Light and fluffy with an excellent cream sauce.

The place had an open floor plan. You could sit and watch the kitchen working from most places. May or may not be something you like.
