I've been to the restaurant with my wife looking forward to a decent meal. The reception was friendly but we were put on a table at the wall, although the restaurant was empty and the window side was completely free with 4 person tables at non peak time. We asked to change the table and received the menu and later... More

Luigi is a traditional restaurant in town. But after some management changes, it`s service level is not good as used to. But they still offer very nice italian food, salad, pasta, pizza as well as good buffet with a good price.

Food is variable. Been there with friends and some dishes are ok and others are awful. Place is nice and service is not that good. Don't worth.

The service is terrible. The waiters are not trained and don't know how to serve clients. The menu is full of nice dishes and drinks, but they don't have almost anything you ask. I really do not recommend it .

The waiting staff were miserable, each and every one of them. they took an age to even acknowledge us, English menus not forthcoming, despite being promised. Staff only really interested in bigger tables where they expect bigger tips

If you are downtown and looking for a place to lunch or dinner, it's your choice, but forget about the pizza, it's poor and tasteless

A lovely place, where you can find all sorts of pasta. I always come here whenever I am in Petropolis. The service is excellent and the food worth the price and tasty.

A pasta place with an average service, average food and a good selection of appetizers, for a average price. If you are more then average, go somewhere else. The waiters keep talking to each other, don't stop to let you pass and the food is a little tasteless. Can't say anything about the pizzas.
