OK...the food is fair. Won't argue that. I will say this though....don't ask for a tour of the kitchen. Cleanliness is not a priority here. In fact...they probably won't "let" you get on your knees and look closely at where ....or how your food is prepared. The water is OK though. That's all I ordered. Choice is yours. Mj

Went to dinner on a Saturday night. The first clue should have been there was no wait to get a table. I had lasagna and it should have been in the soup section. It was very runny. My brother had the veal and it was chewy. Wives seemed to do ok with chicken marsala and spaghetti and meatballs. Desert looked... More

First of all, let me emphasize that the service which we received was outstanding. Many thanks for that! The food was what got the mixed reviews. My hubby (who likes to consider himself a lasagna aficionado or to others a snob) really liked his Lasagna. On the other hand, I was very disappointed in the Spaghetti with the Works. It... More

We took my parents to this restaurant for my father 70th birthday. The food overall was really good. I had lasagna which I would give a 3 1/2 out of five. The meat in the lasagna was ground really fine for my liking. I prefer a coarser grind for a little more texture but the flavor was great. My father... More

Dirty and rude. They reused my bread basket liner and picked up the lemon they dropped and put it back in my drink.

We like the beef medallions and the lobster ravioli. Also like the house dressing, tomato vinaigrette.

This was our first vist to Luigi's. When we arrived we were promptly greeted by the owner who sat us and very personable. The service was excellent. The waiter immediately took our drink order and made a few recommendations. We ordered Cheese Sticks as appetizer. They were out within 10 min and very good. We ordered the Pasta Sampler. Stromboli... More

I've never cared for the food at Luigi's, always too much garlic for my tastes. But a group that I'm a part of decided to eat there. I went along against my better judgement. I ordered a salad with spaghetti w/meat sauce. The salad was poor, only lettuce with one thin slice of tomato. The spaghetti w/meat sauce did not... More

Luigi's is one of my favorite Italian Restaurants. You will not be upset with the portions, its authentic and cheaper than Olive Garden.
