BR is a huge restaurant town to begin with, and then there are many great Italian restaurants in town that we have enjoyed since we moved here a few years ago, so there's loads of competition. We've dined in Italy many times, and on top...More

This place is a Baton Rouge institution and has been for years. Dependably italian fare with a nice bar featuring live music. Get there early because it gets crowded. Also, try the Lawrence bread!
