Italian Flavor

If you like Italian food there's none better than this place. Go and see for yourself. If you want the delicatessen food to take home it's awesome as well, and we guarantee that you will continue coming back for more. Rgds..A.R.

Found this after a search on trip advisor. This place was way off the beaten path, but certainly worth the search. We went past miles of seedy auto repair shops and auto junk yards and wondered what we had gotten into. The neighborhood Luigi's was in was very old town, near a little nicer housing. The place was full of... More

Luigi's is a great hangout where you'll possibly find photos of your parents or grandparents even, on the walls throughout the restaurant. Family style seating in the main dining room allows seating for larger groups easily. They have expanded some to include plenty of outdoor seating behind the restaurant on the patio. The food is somewhat bland to me but... More

Fantastic local eatery and bar. The food is good and getting better all the time. The real gem of the place is in its atmosphere and the local populace who inhabits the place, especially on Fridays and Saturdays. Be prepared to wait on Saturday if you get there anytime after 11:00 a.m.

We have been to Luigi's three times and were not overly impressed with the food. If you show up a lunch time you will have a wait. When I first visit an Italian restaurant I have linguine and clams that way I can compare different restaurants. I found the sauce very runny and there were not a lot of clams.... More

Ok so I went to Luigi's last week and ended up having the Pasta with bolognese sauce and "spicy" sausages. Hmm it was ok. I'm not knocking Luigi's because it is a very decent place but I think people in Bakersfield just don't realize what good food really is. The service was slow, but granted they are always quite busy... More

Even thought Luigi's far away from my house, I don't mind driving there. I love their food, the place (so italian) and their delicatessen shop!

This is a great spot for a Saturday with friends! Anytime after they open, you will have to wait but they take call aheads and will actually allow you to go in early if you're there before 11! This place is great for large parties and small but they also deliver!! The atmosphere is awesome, especially if the weather is... More
