If you are looking for a good place to go with the family for some Italian you have found it! Good atmosphere and great food. I recommend the lasagne and bottomless bread bowl! The sauce is amazing :)

We enjoy Italian fare but usually stick with the spaghetti and meatballs with their heart healthy sauce. It's much lighter than the regular sauce and not near as sweet. The wait staff are friendly folks who usually provide great service. Mody is the owner and knows most everybody in town. I wish he would rename the restaurant after his last... More

Tasted frozen and we had an airhead waitress. The grandkids, who will eat canned pasta, didn't even like it. Never eaten at an Italian place with no vino.

This is our favorite place to eat Italian food when we are in town visiting family. Their bread and sauce is the best! My husband loves the poboys. Great local family owned restaurant.

Always a favorite in Natchez. Twice baked lasagna is my favorite but everything I've had has been delicious. Sauce is sweet but it's great in my opinion.

Second visit to this relaxed find. Great service. Relaxed climate. My dish surprised me with so much sauce. Almost too much. Chicken with Alfredo and spinach. The warm buttered bread was great! Maybe less is better....next time.

Scrumptious Italian food. Food is worth the money, but slightly on the expensive side. Kind staff gave us a free dessert because we were on our honeymoon!

I am not a fan of marinara but I gave it a try at Lil Dago's and it blew me away! We would love to buy a bottle of it to take back home with us. When we travel to Natchez, a meal at Lil Dago's is a must!

The service is very good. The food is excellent. The spaghetti and meatballs and Lasagna are over the top. The choices are good for an Italian restaurant
