Really tasty

We popped in here this evening. I have eaten at many Italian restaurants and would definitely say this was up to scratch. The staff were attentive, the service was fast and the food was delicious, and such large portions too! I would eat there again for sure.

The pasta was very mashy. The service was so slow... To think there were only two tables being served. The attendant/manager was not even apologetic. She offered another pasta to be cooked but could not suggest a pasta that would take shorter time to cook. There are other restaurants in Davie that value their customers.

Chanced by and went in on a Friday night. Great atmosphere and very friendly staff. Tile floors and old wooden chairs added to the ambience. Very much like some restaurants I have eaten at in Italy. Portions are quite large on regular pastas but fairly normal on baked dishes. Wine list isn't large but what they have is priced very... More

I've been to many Italian restaurants and the food in this one was inedible and I'm not even that much of a fussy eater. A big pile of pasta with a horrible sauce is not proper Italian food. The waitress seemed annoyed that we were not buying alcoholic drinks. Far too expensive for what it was, i've had pasta from... More

Checked the menu in the window while walking Davie St. and was invited in by the proprietor. Had a very good, large serving, pasta meal, Quiet, reasonably roomy with good service, what more could one need. I would certainly return again.

Have enjoyed drinks and dinner at the Luxy on a number of occaisions, and generally find it a great little place in a terrific spot to enjoy a casual but always very tasty italian meal. As others have commented, the pasta portions are large, and dominate the long list of menu choices. I have tried at least a few &... More

Food is freshly made almost in front of you , the good aroma you can smell the moment you enter the restaurant and staff and service are both amazing. Great ambiance and located in the chic part of town. Price is relatively comparable to others but portion is very generous. I would easily recommend to anyone.

I ate at Cafe Luxy tonight for the first time in a few years. I feel that the quality has declined since my last visit. I'm not sure if the quality is lower or if my standards are higher, but either way I did not enjoy the meal as much. It is not terrible by any means, but I will... More

I had the cannelloni and it was quite good, with a nice filling, good melted cheese topping, and a tasty sauce. However it was preceded by a salad that comes with the meal, and that was dreadful--plain lettuce saturated with dressing (perhaps a basic Caesar salad). One slice of toasted garlic bread was also provided, and when I'd finished it... More

Just had dinner and was very disappointed. The old attentive staff wasn't there, just one women who didn't seem very interested in serving us. Too busy chatting with a women at the bar. The food was Mediocre at best. Poor balance of flavors and heavy tasting. It's off the list.
