We always have the early bird special several dished offered for $12.99 each day. Always good but leaves you wanting more. The minestrone soup and chicken parmigiana very good. There are happy hour specials and delicious dessert! The atmosphere is relaxing with soft music and view of the bayou. It is a must stop when on Longboat. It tasted so good that next time we may have to opt for the larger entree!

Don't be fooled by the name. The Bayou is as Italian as you're going to find. The name comes from the view overlooking the canal. We had the early dining special. The portions for pasta and meatballs were more than adequate. The meatball were absolutely wonderful. The canoli were had for dessert was truly marvelous. Everything is homemade. Very friendly staff too.

Good southern Italian, a little more Americanized than what I expected but very tasty. Eggplant Parmigiana was good along with fresh pasta. Owners are great!

After having read positive reviews, we decided to try the early bird special. The minestrone was light and yummy; house salad really fresh. Our server was very attentive -- even showed us some meals he was bringing out of the kitchen while we were deciding. The homemade tomato sauce on our eggplant parm and canneloni was the best. Good portion size, too. Definitely a new favorite place.
