The food and service were excellent!
Food was excellent - loved the bread - service was friendly and attentive without being intrusive - very good dining experience!
This is one of our favorite places to go in Baron Rouge.
The food was delicious, as always. Delaney took excellent care of us. And we made good use of the dance floor!
First time dining here. Food was excellent. Drink service a little slow.
Great food! Amazing wine
This was our first time and we were pleased. Nothing amazing but also nothing to disappoint. I can see us coming try it again.
I really enjoyed the fried calamari. The linguine with clam sauce was the best I’ve had since I went to San Francisco. My wife did not enjoy her veal piccata. I enjoyed the leftovers.
Great spot for dinner. The live singer was over the top awesome! Food was on point, and our waiter was fantastic. Went above and beyond to make our dinner great.
We dinner here OFTEN and the food, atmosphere, and music is always enjoyable!
The restaurant was very nice and clean. The atmosphere was great. We were celebrating my wife's birthday. The food was very good and worth the amount paid with generous portions.
Had to wait a while for the waiter sometimes, but other than that, the food was good. Price was higher than others, but it was nice enough to be worth it.
I always enjoy this restaurant. Both the food and the service are always great, and the atmosphere is perfect for either a date night or a business lunch. The prices are very reasonable. This is the first time I've been since the start of the pandemic, and I was happy to see such a busy lunch crowd while I was there.
Loved it! Great food and service and loved the music!
Food was descent, but the service was not very attentive. Items forgot, no contact for 40 minutes with empty water glasses and the same server poured water at the table next to us.
good food, great service, reasonable prices, live music - nice but would have prefer quieter background
Nice, quiet place to enjoy eating. Food was good value for the money, and service was excellent.
We enjoy La Contea, and Robert always does a great job when he is assigned to serve us! My favorite dish is the Caesar Salad with salmon.
Our waiter was super friendly. They were really fast. The grouper was delicious! The bread too! It is made in house! I would for sure go back
Amazing food as always!!
Excellent! Love the atmosphere food and service
Loved this restaurant! Austin was a great server! Food was good! Prices were extremely reasonable! Will be back!
We went on a date here & it was a great date spot, the atmosphere was nice. The food was incredible.. however we were put at a table in the corner & felt basically ignored until an older couple who were obviously regulars were sat beside us. Since we had been waiting so long we knew what we wanted. They brought our app our & then finally some bread, within a couple minutes out salad too even though we asked to wait. And before we were halfway through our appetizer they brought our food out. The server tried to laugh it off like he didn’t know why it came out so fast & immediately asked if we wanted to go boxes. It definitely messed with the vibe of our Valentines fate & made us feel rushed. Not to mention we skipped most of our appetizer & out salad so our food didn’t get cold. What’s more aggravating is they weren’t even busy. We would go back because the food was so good but would definitely be direct that we don’t want everything at once although that should go without saying.
Service was excellent. The Veal Parmesan was very good and a large portion. The atmosphere was relaxing. I plan to go back and try other dishes.
What we ordered wasn't very good. The tomato basil soup was very good. The calamari, brussel sprouts fair, veal Parmesan not good, shrimp dish i got too much liquid. Maybe we just ordered wrong dishes
Great place. Had a gentleman singing frank Sinatra tunes which was a plus. Osso bucco and clam linguine were great. Calamari came out perfect. Zero grease. Looking forward to next trip.
Great food and vibe for dinner. The live music was a plus.
We had a great dinner experience. The food and atmosphere were both good. The prices and service were even better. It was really great overall.
music is a little loud at times and makes conversation difficult
My wife and I went for Valentines Day. It was fabulous. Food was great! Ambiance was quite nice. The staff overall could not have been better.
We will be back!
Great independent Italian restaurant in Baton Rouge. Been there twice visiting the city. Locals should support it!!!
The service and atmosphere were awesome. We enjoyed our valentines outing. I think some dishes could be improved on presentation. Dishes had good flavor.
Benjamin was amazing! His expertise on wine pairings were impressive and appreciated.
This place has great food and a great atmosphere. Our waitress Zoe was extremely sweet and everything came out in a timely manner!
Very lovely birthday dinner for my 19 year old! Even her friends enjoyed it.
It was our first time there and I can’t wait to go back!!!! Everything was great! The service, food, piano music, ambiance...just everything!!!
Very good food
And service! We will be back.
It was great. Prides were fabulous!
We found by chance on Open Table and was so happily surprised. Everything was amazing. The service from our waiter, hostess and Manager were nothing less than perfect. The only reason I gave the food 4 stars instead of 5 is because we thought the entrees could have used a little more flavor but I know that’s a personal preference. They were both really good; felt it needed just a smidge more garlic. I had Shrimp Florentine and my boyfriend had the Red Fish. The bread the gave to start and our desserts were delicious. I think my dessert was probably one of the best I’ve ever had! The ambiance was amazing too. It could easily be a more dressy place or great for a group dinner. I highly recommend and will definitely be back!!!
We had the best celebration for my son’s 19th birthday everything was perfect the service was outstanding the food was delicious and the music was fun and we enjoyed everything about it highly recommended
