Best little hidden gem in town. I'm a big fan. Nice wine list, small, maybe ten- twelve tables, homemade pastas. Really well done. Let us know how it turns out.

This is a hidden gem. I had a lunch meeting there Thursday and enjoyed it so much, I took the wife to lunch there Friday as well. The homemade roasted pepper soup was awesome. Pasta is hoemade as well as the bread. I had the grilled chicken alfredo and the wife had the lasagna. One of the best lunches we have had togther in a while. Would recommend to anyone.

My wife and I do lunch there quite a bit. Twelve bucks is the best deal in town.

Went there for the first time Saturday and one of the best places we have eaten in Baton Rouge. Definitely a hidden gem. I have been down here 12 years and I'm ashamed we just got around to trying it. Highly recommend.

TIL Nino's Italian on Bluebonnet is a HIDDEN GEM!



I'm glad everyone agrees. Personally, I think it's a hidden gem. Been a couple of times and need to go again. Baseball cut sirloin and gnocchi ftw.

Right now, it's my go-to Italian in BR. Highly recommended. Put it at the same level as Gino's (for me, Nino's is more convenient), way better than Little Village. I don't think anything else is even in the ballpark aside from Ruffino's, which to me is a different animal.

I cracked up at this. Talk about hidden in plain sight. A lot of people probably see it every day and don't ever notice it. I lived here 2-3 years, drove by it several times and would talk myself out of trying it because I thought if it was good, I would have heard about it.

Of course, once I tried it, I was hooked. Didn't want to hype it though, it would make it harder to get one of the few tables.

It's a great spot for a date. I really enjoyed it the time I went and need to go back soon.

Don't know if this is still going on but we got half of a bottle of wine for checking in on Four Square.
