I've been here quite a few times and I always enjoy the food (which is usually hard to say for a fussy eater!). The staff are friendly, lovely atmosphere and if its a birthday watch out - you get a hillarious selection of hats to wear while the staff sing happy birthday!

This was my first visit since the new owners have taken over the service was polite and friendly as it has always been in the past.We went to the early bird as we had children with us and although the £5 pasta or pizza seemed good value i would rather have paid more for better food. The pizza was ok... More

We decided to try Don Luigi's on the strength of reviews made by other Tripadviser members. We were not disppointed. We went there to celebrate our wedding anniversary and had a lovely meal. The menu was plentiful and varied and although a little above normal prices was worth every penny. There is a really good atmosphere within the dining room,... More

Don Luigi has become our go-to place for birthdays, anniversaries, as well as just the odd meal out. Why? the food is consistently good and the service is personal, friendly, but still slick and professional, no matter how busy they are. The portions are generous too!

We visited on Thursday night- pizza night. £10 each for a drink, unlimited pizza followed by a Nutella pizza (to die for). It's a bargain. Staff were very helpful and encouraging as we started our fourth pizza. Also a great place to visit with young children the staff could not do enough for our 10 month old lad.

Me and my fiancé went for our dinner this evening. Staff where really friendly. Service was quick. We went for the early bird offer of pasta for £5. It was delicious! Large portions too. Excellent value for money. Will definitely be visiting again soon. Better than other Italian restaurants in formby!

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
