Best Italian sausage. Great pizza crust. Very friendly staff & service. Favorite dish is the spaghetti with sausage or the Penne All' Arrabbiata with sausage. Best Italian salad dressing. Really good bread served with meal.

GREAT Italian food prepared by family in a casual atmosphere. YES, this is the place that was on "Kitchen Nightmares" but don't Gordon Ramsey's screaming scare you away. Luigi's D'Italia is our favorite Italian restaurant in Orange County,Ca. We have been eating there since 1985!

This was suggested by a restaurant lady at the Anaheim Convention Center. We thought Italian would be good since our daughter drove down from Long Beach to meet us. The photo makes this place look nicer than it really is. The food was fine with big portions.

This is no doubt, the best Fried Calamari in the area. Comes with a tasty marinara sauce. Waitress says the appetizer is fresh vs. frozen. Gotta be true, 'cause it tastes so good. Great service. Waitress is very attentive and friendly. Their pastas are very good, and can be made to order, if you want something special that's not on... More

Just back from a long trip and was desperate for a good Italian dinner. Been here many times and this is my Italian restaurant of choice in the area. Family owned and operated, the service is quick and friendly. The fried calamari and shrimp appetizer is the best ever. Often just get a side of pasta and the calamari/shrimp appetizer.... More

I LOVE Luigi's! I have been going there since 1985 and it has come to be "home cooking" to me and my family. I am so sad to see that there are any bad reviews about Luigi's, but I'm sure any restaurant can have an "off night" or a dish that they could scrap. Having gone there for so many... More

Let me say first of all that the food was good. Now for the 3 stars instead of 4.. My wife and I decided to try Luigi's again after a couple of years (and Gordon Ramsey's visit on Restaurant Impossible) to see if the food was better than it was the last time. It HAD to be, because the last... More

We have been going to Luigi's for at least the last 20 years. We live out of state and visit it on every trip to Anaheim. The food is delicious and reasonably priced. I am very glad that they brought back the original menu. It is a great place to go if you are visiting Disneyland and are looking for... More

This restaurant made the best Italian food I've had in ages. Delicious *real* Italian food. My mom had the cannelloni, which was good. I had shells stuffed with spinach, artichokes and ricotta in marinara sauce. SOOOO GOOD! My uncle ordered off-menu, asking for a Carbonara, which they obliged without problem, and he said it was the best he'd had in... More

The bread-wonderful. Linguini imperiali with shrimp-wonderful. Deep fried calamari-best I've ever tasted. Some of the other linguini-seafood dishes didn't have quite enough seafood, but the 3 things I picked, if you stay with them, you'll do ok. Very casual, very friendly, family-owned & we've been coming there since 1979.
