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

Over 100 years old in the original building. Great food but what makes this place unique is the local atmosphere. This is THE place to go for lunch and see all your friends! Seating outdoors is my favorite place.

The food is super delicious and the cocktails are how you want them! Family style sitting. Pickle tongue is one of the best in town. From steak to their pasta with red sauce. You can't go wrong here, unless you go at night. They close early so call to make sure they are open.
