Shreveport is Getting a New Italian Restaurant… With a Twist!
Not only is Shreveport getting a new Italian eatery, but they say their dishes have a 'Cajun' twist!
For the longest time, it's pretty much been Monjuni's or Notini's when it comes to Italian food in Shreveport-Bossier City. Of course, if you want to go fancy, there's always been L'Italiano, too. But now, if you're looking for straight-up Italian comfort food with a Cajun flair, we have a new option in Shreveport.
Where is Shreveport's new Italian restaurant?
The brand new Italian restaurant in Shreveport is located at 5747 Youree Drive next to Sunshine Health Foods. It's called Mama's Italian House and according to the early 'friends and family' reviews, the food is spectacular. Just take a look at this menu!
I don't know about you, but I really want to try their spicy marinara. Another big plus is that it looks like their prices are quite affordable. I'll be completely transparent here... I'm 100% addicted to carbs and pasta is one of my favorite ways to ingest them! The Mama's Italian House sneak peek is going on tonight, Wednesday, December 6th and it will open for business for all of us 'normal' folk, tomorrow, Thursday, December 7th, 2023, for their grand opening.
The only thing I'd like to request is that you add cannolis to your menu. I haven't had a cannoli since I moved here from New York in 2004!
