Great food, lots of choice and really really good (unusual flavour) pizzas. Try the banana, pineapple and prawn !! yes it works Never a bad meal here although it would be nice if the atmosphere was a little less sterile but at the end of the day it is a family place and does not pretend to be anything else....

Eat here 4 times over a 3 week period. The food was delicious and the setting was lovely although was very cold at night if you eat upstairs. The hour wait each time for our main meal was ridiculous and then the waiter always forgot something.

My family and I have eaten at Luigi's a number of times over the past 15 years. During our latest visit we fancied some pasta and thought Luigi's would be perfect. Ordered two lasagna and a macaroni bake. When they came out I was shocked by the size of the portion. It looked like a brick on my plate! There... More

Has a varied menu, try the fish pie called house special, the service is good and situated in a good position, wine red usually about 12 to 14 pounds, same in most restaurants.

Have eaten here many times over the years and always a pleasant experience. I always choose to sit upstairs and watch the world go by outside as I usually travel alone. Excellent pizza and pasta. Some years ago, had breakfast here, equally yummy.

I read some pretty good reviews before going here - but was disappointed. The food felt heavy and over processed.

The service is great. The food was lovely. Restaurants is clean and if you are seated up stairs you get a nice breeze and a fairly good view. It's right next to the beach as well.

After a few busy days in The Gambia and not wanting to travel far from The hotel, we decided to try Luigi's and we loved it.. Definitely recommend anyone to try this lovely Italian and it's an Italian just as what you'd normally expect anywhere else.
