Fabulous staff ( they always go the extra mile) and great food.Menu is extensive and some very good value deals are also available. The atmosphere is always good and there is a small bar area upstairs which is nice to meet in before the meal. Also a great place for family dos of mixed ages.

Don Luigi is a popular restaurant due to how good it is and it's great traditional Italian décor, menu and service. The food is always fresh and cooked perfectly, the prices are fairly high but considering the quality they are worth it every now and then. The ribs and calamari in particular are delicious starters and the portions are huge,... More

Another meal in Don Luigis and the food was as superb as ever. The service was a little slow in paying the bill, but I can't complain the food was so good.

Went to Don Luigi's with my local choir for our pre Christmas meal - the service was good and the meal was excellent. We were well looked after from booking through to when we left and would go again.

Massively overpriced. Everything that I feel lets a restaurant down - I came out to eat what I cannot cook myself - but I could do better at home. And add to that a substantial bill at the end Prawns in garlic? Rubber balls with no garlic instead. Tasteless. Such a simple starter but very poor. Aubergine main? My guest... More

A great family restaurant. Good atmosphere & pleasant decor. The service is excellent & you are always given a warm, friendly welcome. The food, whether early bird menu or a la carte, from pizza or pasta to fillet steak. is very good. I would recommend Don Luigis for that special occasion or when you just don't feel like cooking. You... More

We went mid week for an evening meal. It was lively and busy with lots of staff to give swift service, perhaps too swift in an effort to please, no sooner did we sit down that we were asked to order drinks, let the customer see the wine list first. The prices for the set menu are good value and... More

I attended the restaurant recently. After having quite high expectations from reading a few reviews, I left slightly disappointed. Although I enjoyed the food, I didn't feel like it reflected the price. The best part of my meal was the sides of garlic bread and mussels which were very tasty. The restaurant was lovely but a little crowded. As it... More

Visited here today and had to write a review. The food was delicious and although it was our first visit it strikes me as the kind of place where you wouldn't ever really get a bad meal. The prices are very reasonable for the quality of the food. The atmosphere is really nice and the staff were so friendly. The... More
