The carbonera is to die for! It's not often on the menu or on the specials board but when it is - don't miss it. The sausage bread & the calamari are not to be missed. The restaurant is divided into rooms for more private dining. All of the dishes, from the tilapia to the Chicken Parmesan are very, very... More

We eat dinner at Luigi's in the bar area, because we also enjoy the live bands that are scheduled to play there on the weekends. One of our favorite bands that plays there is "Cover Story Band". After enjoying your wonderful meal, we enjoy dancing to their music. So eat at Luigi's for dinner and stay for the dancing.

Sausage Bread is a must order. Ordered the Tilapia Picatta. Had great flavors. Great service. Only problem was that temperature outside was about 60 degrees, and there was a roaring fire going in the dining room. Made the dining room hot and stuffy. Not quite cold enough yet for that! lol

I bought a $75 gift card for my sister to use at Luigi’s House since she loves Julian’s Piano Bar. Prior to purchasing it, I called the customer service number to verify that it could be used at the Piano bar and the person stated YES since it was owned by the Portillo’s brand AND that it had the Luigi’s...

The prices are a bit high for an average dinner, but as a special treat this place was amazing. We were from out of town so the waiter explained the history of the restaurant and offered to show us around the 6 dining areas that were all themed differently. He knew what he was talking about and was inthuastic about... More

We had a 5 course dinner and appies in the private dinning room. Food was homestyle service which is a nice change. Portions were large and food was excellent. The cheese ravioli was amazing and i would order it again.

Great atmosphere. I love the sausage bread appetizer. I ordered steak from here once and it was delicious. I have never been disappointed when dining here.

I know this place is owned by Dick Portillo founder/owner of the fantastic chain of Portillo's Hot dogs and Barnelli's Pasta fast food joints however, this place is horrible food!!! People tell me it's their favorite Italian restaurant in Naperville/Aurora area, must NOT be Italian!!! The Italian food at Barnelli's inside many Portillo's restaurants is way better tasting and more... More

Had lunch there recently. Food is similar (meaning good) to other offerings at Portillo's chain, but presented in a higher quality setting: rustic Italian environment, fireplace, white tablecloths, booths with drapes. Fresh bread and dipping olive oil brought to the table while we waited. Waitress was very attentive and knowledgeable. Lunch was served promptly and portions were quite large.
