Freshly layered and baked classic lasagna with ground beef, covered in marinara and mozzarella cheese
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
My wife and I make a monthly pilgrimage to our Happy Place. Atmosphere, great food, great drinks, and live entertainment in beautiful surroundings. Get the grouper with white sauce on a bed of roasted asparagus. If you can find a better meal for $25 let me know where to go. And you have to do the cheeseboard. Unfortunately, have to skip soup or salad if you do since you will be FULL. Did I mention the great wines?
The waitress was the best ever !!
Everything was great! Food, service, and atmosphere.
Food was excellent! Traveling thru and
This was a nice surprise
Great food! First time and will be back!
We come here often and it’s always great! The Piano Man or the Soloist are enjoyable as well.
Food was great and very nice live dinner music too.
Absolutely enjoyed our night here! It was our anniversary and our waiter Jhalen went above and beyond to make our night special! We will definitely be back and asking to dine with Jhalen again!
Wonderful food! Great service! I’ll definitely be back.
It was our 1st time there for our anniversary since we've been to all the fine dining in Baton Rouge & wanted to try something different since we couldn't go to New Orleans due to their new covid restrictions. It was pretty good & we will definitely be back.
Excellent lunch experience on a Sunday. Service, atmosphere, and food were very good. I made reservations and had no problem being seated. The menu is extensive without being overwhelming, and the wine list was impressive.
This restaurant was great for date night! They had live music, but it was not overly loud. The food was classic Italian. Very tasty and good size portions! Will go back!
We had a fantastic dining experience… and the live entertainment was icing on the cake. The only thing missing was a Fernet-Branca with dessert; seems like it should be standard fare at an Italian restaurant. Thank you.
Food was great so was the service. And the live entertainment was an added treat. We will definitely be back.
Wonderful restaurant. The staff and servers were professional and friendly.
They had a singer singing Frank Sinatra genre songs.
The ambiance was spot on!
