The restaurant was appealing enough from the outside to be drawn in and the décor looked typical of an 'Italian'. The staff were friendly enough but because of where we were sat, it felt like they were hovering over us.The menu was limited, lots of pasta, but no pizzas or chicken dishes and I have had much better food elsewhere....

early evening meal, with a nice welcome and simple Italian food. Could have been a bit warmer but the welcome was good. Nice wine at a reasonable price, that is along with the food price. Would recommend and more importantly would also go back

We spend lots of weekends in Ambleside in our motorhome. Although most pubs are dog friendly the food is generally 'pub grub'. This weekend we discovered a lovely Italian with great ambience. Downstairs there are tables for customers with pets. The staff were extremely helpful, the menu is limited but we had a beautiful meal which we could not fault.... More

Called in on a quiet Thursday evening - had a deal on the food which was good value. Great food, wine and service and now we know it's dog friendly we will be taking our 4 legged friend next time. Good to meet the resident dogs too!

We have been eating at Luigi's on our annual visits to the Lake District since the mid 1990s and checking it is still open is the first thing we do on arrival in Ambleside. Last Thursday (20 February) we dined there at 7.30pm with a party of four and everything was excellent as ever. A reasonable price (£100 for three... More

a small intimate place with a small limited menu but quality food. The service was good with a lovely young friendly waitress and all in all a tidy experience.

Felt very relaxed as soon as we walked through the door. We were downstairs as we had the dog with us. A bowl of water and a bed were there for him, the fire was burning and the music was lovely and relaxing. Staff were very friendly, as was the chef. We both had pasta dishes which were tasty. Would... More

From the outside, it look liked an authentic Italian. From the inside it was cold and rather tired. And the food....let's just say that I am not a great cook, but even I wouldn't have served up a pasta dish with quite so much water on the plate.
