It is just ok

Maybe I should have ordered something else. I ordered Chicken Marsala and I didn't like it the pasta side dish was ok. Bread good.wine excellent, I didn't like the italian dressing on my salad and even the cheese cake dessert wasn't that good. There were other people there who seemed to be enjoying... read more

Luigi's is now closed. It had been a local neighborhood fixture for 50 years having survived many changes in locale in the area...redevelopment etc. It recently changed ownership but it is now permanently closed.

This is a gem tucked into a little shopping strip. It is a family restaurant that is quiet and very sweet. They have a great Senior and kids menu. They are very accommodating and eat there every time we are in the area.

When we arrived the resturant only had 4 diners inside, this was of a concern, but it was Italian food that we wanted to we went in. As soon as we walked in we were greeted and seated, then a waitress took our order, she was so nice, chatty and friendly, I would like to think that service is also... More

Reviews gave us an unrealistic expectation. I could have gotten better food at an Olive Garden or Macaroni Grill and I am not a fan of chains! Foccacia was burnt on the bottom, garlic bread appeared to be a bun of some sort that was barely heated with butter on it. Sauce tasted like it came from a jar. I... More

Surprisingly good food. I wasn't expecting much given that this restaurant is sitting in a little strip shopping center amongst the standard corporate fast food restaurants. On par with any good Italian restaurant. We split the lasagne and green salad with anipasto type toppings. Both were excellent. The half carafe of Pino Grigio was good but seemed a little expensive.... More

Luigi's is tucked behind Hawthorne Blvd in a strip mall, so drive slowly or you just might miss is. The atmosphere was truly the old Italian feel, with outdoor seating. There is disabled parking to the left of the front door, along the side of the restaurant, we did not notice it until we parked in front. The staff is... More

If you like Itallian food, you'll love Luigi's! If you're in the neighborhood, stop in and try it yourself. I think you'll remember it and will return.

Very convenient to the Ayres Hotel. Neighborhood type restaurant, family run. Food is served hot, and all servings are more than adquate in size. Staff is attentitive but not over bearing. Prices are very reasonable. No dislikes here.
