The food is certainly good, but the atmosphere is off the chain? You can but household goods, kitchen stuff and the all in 1 trip experience was made even better by a great server.

Excellent food, great atmosphere. Everyone from the host to the waitstaff took great care of us even though they'd probably rather been home with family and friends on Christmas Eve... and the place was packed at that. I recommend Monjunies highly for great Italian food and the good times to be had there.

This is my favorite location of the 3 in Shreveport/Bossier. Great cheesy Italian decor, plastic grapes and all. I have yet to have anything that was not good, with generous portions. There is outside dining as well as inside.

Had the twice baked lasagna. Very good and slot of food. The sauce is sweet which is different for me, but I really liked it. Staff was great and attentive.

My husband and I came thru from Little Rock to return home to dallas. Detoured on a side street and saw this really cute, one of a kind restauran! I had to stop. Atmosphere was great old style Italian including plastic grapes. Plenty of people and great smelling food. My husband has a salt problem so he was unable to... More

Based upon multiple visits over the years, the rating is average. This visit, I ordered the Veal Parmesan. There was a thick layer of cheese glopped over the veal, probably to hide the fact that there was so little of the veal. I had to scrape the cheese off. There was more spaghetti than one could possibly eat. On balance,... More

Monjunis is always delicious. This is yet another place I've been going to since I was little. I recommend the lasagna, po boys, chicken parmesan, really everything is good here. It's not the biggest restaurant so try to get there in the early afternoon for a table/booth, before they fill up during the supper crowd. An absolute must, if you... More

If you like eleven layers of pasta in your lasagna - then this is the place for you! Very disappointed. Like most places in Northern Louisiana - the locals don't know that the food is awful!

They are not the founder of the Muffaletta, but they are the best in my opinion. Their lasagna is my favorite, but some folks don't care for the sauce because it is a little on the sweet side. It can't be too bad because it is sold in many local grocery stores. The meatballs are tender and flavorful and their... More

My husband and I try to eat here every time we are in from Dallas. The spaghetti sauce and the muffy's are to die for. Great service. Love the small place atmosphere. One of our faves for many years.
