Great place for a celebration. The bread is the best and our server was fantastic. He just talked so fast about options we didn't understand him.

Highly recommend! This is a very nice restaurant! We took my mom there for Mother's Day and it was a perfect choice! We all enjoyed the bread, the appetizers, the food and especially the lovely music! It was a beautiful day, so we chose to dine outside which made it easier to hear the music coming through the speakers. :)
While most of the food was good and the wait staff was excellent and attentive, we had to wait over an hour after ordering before our entree arrived. No real explanation except apologies from waiter. Not even an offer of free dessert! We had reservations that were made a week before at least and still we were seated right by the kitchen so the traffic and noise was constant. Usually the Village Bread is awesome with plenty of olive oil to dip bread. The last 2 times the bread was not up to par. Very little "olive oil" and I actually think they diluted the olive oil with butter or other cheaper oil - didn't totally taste like either. I know olive oil prices have risen but this was totally not up to par for the price. The 2 ends of the bread had no olive oil/butter on them and not even enough in the bottom of the plate to dip so the ends were dry. One diner's fettuccine was also not up to par - only warm and tasted like something was missing - very little crabmeat on top for the price.
My Little Favorite Place
Every time that I dine at The Little Village, I have the greatest experiences. The wait staff (Christian was my server Sunday) always treat me as though I have made the best decision to eat there. They are friendly and very attentive. They are knowledgeable of the menu and how the food taste. I look forward to my dining experiences because I know they will be GREAT!

I had the fish almondenne for the first time and it was extremely bland. I have enjoyed all other entrees up to that point. Either the breaking or the sauce could use a little more flavor. The rest of the meal and experience was great.

The service was impeccable and unassuming. The servers was very helpful and patiently attentive. The food was stunning as always. I had been several times to the downtown restaurant but this was my first experience with the one on Airline. With my mom just around the corner at Old Jefferson CCC, it was a convenient and delicious opportunity for a mother's day lunch!
Usually the oscar fillet is to die for, but on this occasion the hollandaise sauce was minimal and the med well was still mooing. Also for anniversary a small desert would have been a nice compliment. This is where the service at ruth chris beats them. Still an option for us, but the high $ makes it questionable.
The food was excellent as always and our waitress, Gretchen, did an awesome job.

We love Little Village. Food is alway great & Hugh (General Mgr) is the BEST & everyone that works there is always friendly!! Dana & Lyle L.
Loved the food
Our food was amazing. My friend had the crawfish omelette brunch and I had the eggplant parmesan which was to die for. I ordered tiramasu to go and it was awesome. Our server was sweet. The $7 all you could drink bloody mary were amazing.
I think we are done
We have always gone to the Little Village for special dinners out. We were a group of 5 for a birthday dinner. The food has gone down hill in the last year. The bread is not as good, the salad had brown edges, the food took forever yet it was overcooked and cold. Save your money! Writing this makes me sad.
As always, every bite was amazing! My brother ate at the restaurant for the first time. He could not get enough of the to-die-for bread. The more loaves he ordered the better he claimed the bread was delicious. Thanks for another great meal! We will be back again!
Great Baton Rouge restaurant!
We went to The Little Village on Airline for dinner with friends. It is one of many restaurants in Baton Rouge that we visit on a regular basis. The food, service, and ambiance never fail to please us. On Thursdays, they have a happy hour with lower prices on the drinks and free appetizers in the bar. It's usually packed! The loaf of bread is wonderful, always warm and very tasty!
MANAGEMENT AND STAFF DID AN EXCELLENT JOB
RESERVATIONS SYSTEM WORKS, EVERYTHING WE REQUESTED WAS THERE WAIT STAFF DID AN EXCELLENT JOB. MANAGEMENT STAFF STOPPED IN TO SEE IF EVERYTHING WAS GOING WELL. IT WAS MY WIFE'S BIRTHDAY AND THIS IS ONE OF THE RESTAURANTS SHE ALWAYS ENJOYS GOING TO. WE BEEN THERE A NUMBER OF TIME AND NEVER HAD A BAD EXPERIENCE. WOULD RECOMMEND TO ANYONE. STEAK WAS EXCELLENT - BETTER THAN CHRIS'S STEAKHOUSE

Food was outstanding. Service excellent. Thanks Alex,!
Overall, I was very pleased. I was hoping for quicker service, but the food was great!
I took my boyfriend to the little village-airline for his birthday and I was very pleased with the service..food was good(especially the bread), it was a quiet and a nice romantic atmosphere. They even brought him a special birthday dessert. I would highly recommend this place to a family/friend.
One of my favorite
Little Village is one of my favorite restaurants. My husband and I always go there for some date nights and special occasions. Never disappointed. Love this place.

Tried food off the Lenten menu and enjoyed the seafood stuffed mushrooms. Ordered the veal sorrento which was tasty but needed more sauce. Additionally, the house salad dressing tasted different but good. Our drinks and server were great. My only negative was the lack of changing silverware between the courSes.
The food was spectacular. The wait staff was great!! We can't wait to go back. The only thing I was not entirely impressed with was the red gravy. It was sweet which I expect from true Italian red gravy but it lacked seasoning and herbs. It needed more flavor. The meatballs were to die for though!!!
Great service and great food.
Great service and great food.
Food isn't what it cracked up to be
I didn't enjoy paying $80 for 2 entrees and bread for something that wouldn't fill up my dog.
We wanted to have a romantic anniversary dinner. Someone recommended The Little Village on Airline Highway. We thought we would give it a try. It turned out to be a great experience. The food was great, the server was wonderful and the place itself was perfect for a romantic dinner. We highly recommend this place.
Valentine's Day Dinner
While the food was vey good, the dining experince left a lot to be desired. After placing our order and while enjoying our wine and waiting for our appetizer, they brought out our dinner salads out. I explained that we ordered an appetizer they went to check leaving the salads. The appetizer arrived a few minutes later. Unfortunately a minute later after that our dinner entrees now arrived. Here we were with our whole dinner order now on our table. Not the experience I wanted nor expected from what was supposed to be a fine dining restaurant and how I wanted to spend my Valentines Day dinner.
Very bad experience. Fish was undercooke ...
Very bad experience. Fish was undercooked Veal Marsala very thick sauce that the veal was swimming in. Bread is an extra charge. We ordered a half loaf. The waiter delivered a half loaf to an adjacent table. He then brought out a full loaf to our table then he realized his mistake he swapped the bread from our table to theirs. He placed their bread on our table after it had been sitting there for 10 minutes. They brought our salads out and then our entree in short order before we half way finished our salads. We will never patronize this restaurant again.
Food was awesome for the meal. However, we waited 30 minutes for dessert and it still did not come so, we asked for our check. Disappointed that for special occasion we did not get to enjoy a great dessert.

The Village bread is a must every time we go. Also highly recommend the veal sorrentino. We shared tiramisu which was the perfect size for each of us along with coffee

Tyrone Howard, our waiter, was excellent! My filet mignon and lobster tail was tender and juicy. I think the prices are too high, but the food was excellent.
It was a enjoyable treat.
We receive a warm greeting from the hostess. We had a 5 minute wait upon arrival for our table to be prepared. Our server explained the specials for the evening and knew the dessert menu off the top of her head; which the white chocolate cheesecake was delicious. The server was avilable and made sure food was to our satisifaction and kept drinks refilled. In addition the manager cheked in on us. All the staff were kind. The food was wonderful and I loved loved the whole loaf of bread!

Service and atmosphere and music were good, but the food was a big disappointment. The only thing good was the bread......cost was kinda high. $200 for 4 people - not sure if or when I will go back.....
Loved the Valentine's lobster and steak special wish a whole lobster was on their regular menu it was delicious hands down best lobster I have ever had.
Excellent place. We loved it!!!!

Friday Pre Valentine Dinner
Thank for making our Pre Valentine dinner out on Friday as awesome as we've come to expect. Thanks to the expertise of the staff in our wine selection and for great service. We are never disappointed and will be back again very soon.
Awesome Food and Service
The bread is a must have for everyone. The sea bass was amazing. Tyrone Howard is one of the best waiters I have ever encountered and I travel 46 weeks a year for work. Truly recommend this taste of Italy!
