We dined at I Monelli last week and it was delicious. The calm, quiet and romantic atmosphere is a nice respite from many other local Italian restaurants that are very good as well but not as quiet. The old fashioned was very good and the...More

Imonelli's is one of Lafayette's best kept secrets. It's perfect for a quiet evening out. The steaks are delicious as are the cocktails and the service is superb.

Disclaimer; I'm not a Lafayette native but find this to be a good town for food. But I'm stunned that there're a couple of places the locals love that are terrible - transplant them to another town and they'd close in a week - this...More
