We were up in the North West over the weekend and made our usual pilgrimage to Don Luigi's. Still excellent service, food and atmosphere from Gianni and Co. It rounded off a great weekend and was well worth the journey. I can only think that the guy who wrote the article about Gianni being a prat needs to read some... More

Where do I begin with my compliments - a perfect evening with friends and family. Gianni and his staff go out of their way to make you feel welcome. The service, food and atmosphere are excellent. I'm shocked by the complaint made by a previous group - the staff are great with children, they love them. I have watched the... More

Strangely, this restaurant was recommended to us by one of our own business customers. I love Italian food and am very hard to please. What is strange is : I read the reviews on trip advisor prior to booking. I was intrigued by " the owner is a prat" title and this is what prompted my decision to go. My... More

Use this restaurant often as is local to us. The food I would say has improved immensely since the advent of new ownership. The offers also have been excellent and for 5 pounds early evening any pasta or Pizza is a great offer for our family daughter and grand kids. We always enjoy the atmosphere and the restaurant is often... More

I have great memories of visiting this restaurant. I have always enjoyed the atmosphere, although loud at times with birthday celebrations, always special. I praise all the staff as they make this restaurant stand out. The food is excellent and all my party was very impressed with everything. We will be back soon.

I visited earlier today as part of a christening party. Having never visited before I was amazed at the size of the restaurant in comparison to the smaller looking frontage. Beautiful both inside and out, with friendly staff and delicious food. The drinks did seem a little expensive, however I am not from the Formby area so can't really comment... More

I have eaten in this restaurant many times over the past few years when we visit family in Formby. The experience has always been excellent. The food is wonderful with a great choice. We tend to choose a mixture of main dishes because there are teenagers wanting pizzas but also we need vegetarian options as well as fish/ meat dishes.... More

Firstly let me take nothing away from the waiting staff as they do a very good job. The management however... The owner is a complete baffoon who had very little people skills. Attending the early bird session the restaurant was busy with people happily eating. Our young daughter was sat with another 3 year old and another younger friend of... More

I'm very sorry to hear that you think I'm a prat. As a father of 3 with twin grandchildren on the way and thirty years experience running family-friendly restaurants, I've always considered myself to be good with children. There are a few facts that I would like to clear up for those reading, as I feel your review gives a... More
