This has been my favorite restaurant for 20 years. Ive never been disappointed. The wait can be long but there is a reason for that. They also have a great bar to hangout in or grab lunch at the bar.

Went for lunch to this iconic family Italian place that has been here forever. I chose the spaghetti and meatballs. I thought it would be great. Sorry to say, the sauce was watery, the meatballs were okay, the spaghetti not even warm. The bread was ok. All in all, i can't tell what all the hype is about. Will not... More

This a great place for lunch. Get there early (11:30 AM) otherwise you might have to wait. Even on a weekday it is crowded. They have a variety of options but the pasta is home made and sooooo good.

There's always a wait but it's well worth it. There's a variety of food offered. They have pasta, salads and sandwiches. It's a great place with lots of local sports history. If you come to town, you don't want to miss this place

If you live here in Bakersfield and haven't been here your missing out on some great food. The pictures on the wall are very entertaining. And the staff are great!

Great place for Italian food with lots of history. Not a chain- one of a kind and worth every minute. The deli next door is full of wonderful eats to take home and the folks behind the counter are so nice and have given us great recommendations.

This place has amazing food but it's very busy. They had a great selection of foods, wines and a great atmosphere. If you've never had Luigis you must!!

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
