This is great place to go but be prepared for a hard time to find parking and to wait but is worth the wait. I like there calamari steak I thing they usually have it on a Tuesday. My husband really liikes the lungi sandwich h has it every time e go there. I try different things.

A reasonably price restaurant with great food. Any salad I have tried here has been great. The other meals as well are very tasty. They have the "Luigi" sandwich which is a very food Otalian sandwich, served on your choice of a hard or soft roll. Tuesday is prime rid day....need one say more, other than yum. Desserts are good...

The food is mediocre at best...waited in line for about 45 minutes for a plate of some plain pasta and crappy sauce. Pretty awful service. Impossible to order or get a drink in this place with the setup they have and lack of staff.

This place is amazing! Full of local history and pictures everywhere. I have lived in Kern County for 28 years and never had a meal here. I didn't realize what I was missing. Had the Clams linguine. It was the best I every had. There is a deli next door so we bought more frozen pasta dishes that were just... More

Luigi's showcases the history of Bakersfield & Kern County with a photo library throughout the place. It has both indoor and patio seating. They even have a deli to purchase things you just ate. Nice piece of history with good food.

This is a great family restaurant with a whole lot of history displayed on the walls. We were very impressed with the simple, no-nonsense food we were served. We ordered a sandwich and pasta and that's what we got. Good portion, no sides. Thankfully! I wish there were more options for people who don't eat beef, though. But that's the... More

My only complaint is they are not open for dinner. Love this place. Can be hard to park but it's worth it. This is my go to lunch spot when I have time to cross town. Everyone should eat here at least once.

Luigi's is the best place to spend a Saturday! Grab a bottle of wine, sit back and enjoy the Cambozola Cheese and sundried tomato pesto, a Giovanna Salad or the absolute best Pastrami Sandwich ever! Ask for Cambozola cheese on it...to die for! The patio is quaint and relaxing. And there is always fun stuff in the wine shop...

I always visit when I am in town-sometimes more than once on any visit. The food is so delicious. Open at 11am for lunch. You need to be there a little before to get seated. There is always a line waiting because everyone loves Luigi's.
