Freshly layered and baked classic lasagna with ground beef, covered in marinara and mozzarella cheese
Food was well prepared and the canolli was excellent.
Wonderful food. Service Devine. Meal not rushed. And a real singer entertaining the diners. Such a special place!
Live music was great. Food was good. Good for kids 9-13
Awesome New Year’s Eve experience! La Contea is our high priority restaurant list in BR
Awesome as always— even on a tricky night like NYE. Still hoping that you’ll carry Fernet-Branca at some point to end a perfect meal. Thanks!
Appetizers were fine, salads just ok, food left something to be desired and deserts were fine.
Always fantastic food and service at La Contea. It really is a hidden gem in Baton Rouge. Great value and a quiet place for a date night or family dinner.
Lasagna & Alfredo delicious. A great holiday vibe. The staff was over the top professionals taking pride in what they do. Everyone was kind - just a great experience.
Food was great, our waiter was awesome. The only knock against the experience would be that the service was “bang, bang, bang” between courses, somewhat rushed.
Other than that the experience was awesome. I will be returning!
Food was delicious, hot, and served quickly ! Lunch menu is a bargain !
We have dined here about six or seven times and it is always enjoyable. Brought two of our Grandchildren there for Sunday lunch. It was first time experience for them and they loved it.
Conducive atmosphere for conversation. Food was excellent and menu offered a good selection. I enjoyed the selection of holiday cocktails. Our server was great and ver accommodating.
Great waiter food and overall service.
Very good appetizers
My date had Italy 3 ways and said it was really good
I had Veal Parmesan that was good but needed more red sauce
The restaurant had a busy lunch crowd that gave us a chance to see other menu items passing by that all looked impressive
We will definitely return and I plan to have the Ossu Buco
Great all around.
Host was unpleasant. Server was excellent.
This is the second time we’ve celebrated our anniversary here. It is a beautiful place and the service and food was delicious. Quickly becoming one of my favorite restaurant.
We enjoyed it thoroughly! Great server, food and atmosphere!
My husband & I had dinner, first time at La Contea. All staff very welcoming. We got seated at a nice banquette table. Our server was Alec, a delightful young man. He did a great job! Tried the fried calamari (tender & tasty), Sensation Salad (fresh crunchy lettuce, dressing can use more flavor), seared tuna on spinach purée (delicious), veal piccata (very good but need to dial back the garlic). Cocktails were excellent, wine was very reasonably priced. Would definitely come back!
We had an excellent family gathering at La Contea for a Sunday lunch. Our table was in the back area, so we could visit without any noise or problems. As always, the food was excellent with outstanding Italian dishes with generous portions.
The service was exceptional by our waitress -- whose name I forgot, but I know she is a native of a Greek Island. She made us feel very welcome and took perfect care of us. We will definitely return!!
Great experience and waitress
Will definitely be back.
A most enjoyable evening! There was a singer with quiet music. The lighting was perfect. The service was outstanding and the food was terrific. I had the grilled tuna in a spinach puree and my girlfriend had the salmon picatta. Our sons had the make your own pizza and shrimp alfredo. For dessert we had the Creme Brule and cheesecake. We will be back!
3 of us were served 4th was delayed. Staff was very apologetic and gave us desert. Didn’t mater. We were enjoying each other and music. Fantastic night. My 80 year old mom had a ball. We will be back.
As usual, the food and atmosphere were excellent. Happy hour wine at $6/glass!
Try the mussels appetizer.
We went on a slow weeknight. The service and food was exceptional! We’ll definitely be going back.
Food was very good. Service was very good. Live music was very good but too loud! Hard for us to carry on a conversation.
Ethan was wonderful. The food and drinks were amazing! Only request, please please bring back minestrone!
Delightful atmosphere for feeling a little Vegas, Dean Martinish, Italian. Great food and service with attention.
Nice restaurant tucked away from the busyness of Baton Rouge. The food was standard Italian fare. Enjoyed the quality of the cheese board, Caesar salad was nicely done, chicken Marsala a little flat. So if you’re a serious foodie, this might not be your jam.
The most positive thing about this restaurant was the service and ambience. They had a singer doing old standards so terrific background for a pleasurable dining experience. The waitress was very friendly and eager to serve. Hostess was terrific - an older woman who came to visit with us. Just a really nice experience.
Very good food reasonably priced.
Authentic Italian perfectly prepared.
Oustanding staff, food and great service! Thank you!
Awesome service & food!
Perfect place for a nice upscale Italian dinner without being too pricey
Good was great, service was excellent and the singer added a very nice ambience!!!
Baton Rouge friends: don’t miss a chance to eat at La Contea. It’s a nice atmosphere, good service and great food. Whether it’s lunch or dinner it always prove to be a good choice! Very reasonably priced food
We had a fantastic anniversary dinner at La Contea! The service was the best I've ever experienced. I requested chocolate covered strawberries on the Open Table reservation, and the owner specially prepared them for us despite this not being a everyday menu item (Valentine's Day special). The food is authentic and pairs well with the wine selection offered. I opted for the Chicken Marsala, and definitely recommend ordering that or the Tour of Italy. We look forward to celebrating here again!
Food was beyond expectations, Great job. Restaurant was a bit cold and service was good but not necessarily great. Will return
