Luigi's is homey and old-fashioned in a good way. The staff are pleasant, the décor is rustic, and the food is traditional Italian fare. This is a restaurant that doesn't try to be too much, staying true to its roots as a family place. The food is good, but not great, and there is plenty of it. Prices are reasonable. The lighting is poor, and the dark wood and furnishings make the whole place dark, but not in a romantic way.

If you like traditional Italian food made competently, then you will enjoy Luigi's.

We visit Luigi's when in the area and always ordered the veal which used to be fork tender. This wasn't the case when we were there recently. ....had to send the veal dish back becsuse it was tough and chewy. We always enjoy the homey setting and service but 2 of us had veal and it was so disappointing .

Visited here not so long ago with the family. Let’s talk the good... loved the fresh, hot and tasty bread. Service was excellent. Not an expensive place. Salad was OK. I had the veal Marsala. Was disappointed. The veal was very tough. Daughter had chicken parm. That was a better choice. Pretty good. Wife had grilled salmon which was OK. Pretty plain. Wish I could say better things but it would be disingenuous. It seems to be a pretty popular place as it was hopping. I am used to really great Italian food in my home neighborhood. This did not meet my expectations.

Luigi's is a pleasant restaurant located on Route 1 in Old Saybrook and offers a variety of entrees from Italian/American dinners, to burgers and pizza. The portions plentiful and the service friendly and attentive...I had the chicken marsala and my date the prime rib both were good and at reasonable prices. There is also a small bar area.

Wonderful family run restaurant with consistently good food- both dine in and take out. This is our “go to” place when we have friends visiting. Always welcoming, always comfortable, always good value for the money.
