"There is something to be said about a restaurant that still uses the handwritten recipes from a little black book that originated in 1945."
- Wayne Stabiler
Today, most all of our authentic Italian specialties, prime steaks and exquisite Louisiana seafood dishes are lovingly prepared as directed by our founders, Vince and Stephanie "Miss Fanny" Distefano, over a half century ago. Generations of Baton Rouge residents have grown up on this food, that, when combined with our intimate atmosphere of South Louisiana warmth and Old World charm, makes for a dining experience unlike any other in the Capital City. Come see us and taste for yourself why it's best that some things never change.
