Hostess was nice enough to call us to confirm our reservation since we were running late. Place was packed. Waiter took a while to come to our Table. Bit dissapointed with the menu. Expected more variety at least in the pasta selection. We ordered an avocado salad but apparently is more of a pepper salad. The beef arancini was ok. I guess the best part of dinner was the wine.

Our dinner at Little Village was a pre-race dinner before the Louisiana Half Marathon; we had all seen good reviews, and we were not disappointed. Devin was a fantastic server and we were very impressed with the teamwork amongst the servers. Our food, from bread through entrees with wine, was spot-on. We'll be back!

Pre-race carb loading for the Louisiana Marathon. The Little Village dinner has become a yearly dining tradition as a precursor to this great event. Always a bit chaotic the night before the race with many folks trying to walk in. Staff handles the high volume well, and do their best to make your dining experience pleasant. That bread and roasted garlic!!!

It was a Tuesday night and the service was not good. Entrees took a long time to come out of kitchen. Waiter was friendly but then took forever getting us our bill and then returning with the slip to be signed. Would not go back.

Great Italian with more of a traditional Sicilian flair in the sauces. Definitely don't pass on the Village bread to start.
