It was okay, as soon as we got there we had to wait several minutes with no server greeting us and take drink order ,asked the hostess if we could please get some beverages,that's a bad start since I was a server for 20+ years, anyway food was average ,lukewarm at best! Server did everything right after the bad start!

Some components of each dish weren't hot/warm. Red sauce had a distinct smokiness/mesquite flavor to it, very different. Steak was overdone. Server was nice, no issues there. Tray of dirty plates which is used as a constant bus area by the table for almost the entirety of the meal. Bottomline, I can say I've been now, and check it off the list.

The noise was overwhelming. They sat us at a small table where everyone was exiting. Customer's were passing by so close we had to cover our food and move beverages away from the center of the table. And the food was cold.Not sure if we ever go back!!!

Very good meal exept for one thing - the green beans were not cooked at all- or at least that was our impression. Our waiter was very friendly, funny and great to chat with. Everyone that worked there was very nice. A good place to go for lunch or dinner and always be pleased.

We have been going to the Little Village on Airline Hwy. in Baton Rouge for Thanksgiving lunch for 4 years. We always enjoy the food, the service, and the ambiance here. Hugh Freeze is an awesome manager. He always makes us feel welcome.

I loved my dinner. The veal sorrentino is to die for. The bread is a must. If you want to enjoy a happy hour drink, go to the bar before 7 pm to get 1/2 off drinks. I love their fresh drinks of the day. After that, we were taken to a table and had a yummy meal. The sensation salad started our meal followed by classic Italian fare. It is so tasty.

This restaurant is a family favorite. We love dining here for special occasions as well as occasional weekday dinners. We had the shrimp alfredo and the stuffed lemonfish. Both were delicious and we had plenty for lunch the next day.

Justin, the waiter, was totally inept! Not at all familiar with menu. Justin actually thought my side dish was under my main entree. The table behind me, was also not happy. My friends entree was cold. Even though we wanted water, no lemon, we got lemon in the water. Hugh, apparent manager, took my friends plate to the kitchen to reheat it. Plate came back cold again. No offer for coffee or dessert by Justin. We had to ask for a wine list. Justin didn't know the difference between cannoli and cannelloni,

The dinner was super as always! Would like the tables to be not so close as everyone's
conversation is going on and the noise level is high. We still do come to Little Village as we
love to celebrate occasions there and the meals are always great.
Sorry another review -- air conditioner very cold br br!!

I made reservations for my mother's birthday. Our server was fantastic! My mom was greeted with birthday wishes from the manager, as well as our bubbly, patient server. The food was excellent and the experience was great for my parents who had never dined at The Little Village. The both left the restaurant noting that they WOULD be back!

We visited Little Village on 9/24/16 and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Our waiter was kind, funny, attentive, and knowledgeable. It was a bit noisy, but I believe that could be blamed on the fact that it was the Homecoming night of a few local high schools. I had the Seafood Medley, which I have heard from many as being their "best" pasta, and it did not disappoint. My mother had the flounder and has since described it as one of the best meals she's ever had. But the winner has to go to my father's steak. I believe it was stuffed? I don't remember if it was a special item or a regular menu item, but I had one bite of it -one- and have thought about it multiple times since. It was absolutely perfect. We will absolutely be back to The Little Village many more times in the future.
Have been to the Little Village Downtown ...
Have been to the Little Village Downtown and was expecting the same quality of food. However the group was completely surprised
Village Bread had way too much oil/butter-----it was very soggy
Fish Limone--was completely burned on the bottom
Fish Almondine--was too oily
Chicken Picatta--was swimming in butter with absolutely no lemon taste
The chicken parmigiana and the baked lasagna were okay but again nothing like downtown.
We came in for a special occasion and did not want to dwell on the negatives that evening.
The positive note was our server she was very attentive and helpful.

Good date night. Party behind out wall was so loud it was hard to talk. The food was good overall. Veal Piccato had a heavy cream sauce that I wasn't used to on Piccato. The soft shell crab thing my husband had was very good he said and the presentation was great.

Limited wine by the glass selection. We ordered the oyster appetizer. It was good overall, however one was over cooked and we were unable to eat it. For $18 they should all be cooked to perfection. The lobster bisque was terrible. It had the after taste of coffee. The shrimp scampi and veggies were good. We ordered the cheesecake for dessert. It was a little dry. The service was excellent.
Our waitress was so accommodating. We ha ...
Our waitress was so accommodating. We had to ask for another table which was easy to get. One diner's food was what she expected and they took it back and brought her a new entrée. Good customer service. We were there because they Were participating in the 25% on the 25th for our fallen heroes. Thank you for doing that!
So many positives about this restaurant ...
So many positives about this restaurant but let me first state the steaks are absolutely the best you will find in Baton Rouge. The service is impeccable and we love the ambience and music selections. The bar area has seating areas if you like a cool vibe to go along with the amazing food and wine selections. The bread is delicious and the bread pudding is amazing. This is our favorite go to dining restaurant as we are always greeted with a smile by the lovely hostesses and served like queens by the waiters.
