Small family run pizzeria off in a small suburban strip mall with the thinnest, tenderest crust. Four different sizes with a wide variety of toppings. Definitely a family friendly stop. Wine and soft drinks readily and cheaply available.

A no frills atmosphere, but "Luigi" served us himself. The garlic bread is to fresh baked, the pizza is the real deal, the chicken risotto is like mama used to make and the eggplant parm is tangy and rich. A definite repeat!

This is a great mom and pop restaurant. I felt welcome the second we arrived, and I really enjoyed our meal. The rice balls were recommended and they were delicious.

Luigi's reminds me of the Italian pizza places in New Jersey. No frills atmosphere, but great food at reasonable prices. I got the Seafood Orzo, yum and only $12. You have to try a Rice Ball. And Luigi's homemade garlic bread is the best I've ever had.

Luigi's is a consistent restaurant with friendly service and tasty food. Most times Luigi the owner is present and personally greets all guests. Make sure you have one (or more) of the rice balls with any other entrees!

Was really busy and a bit under staffed, but our waitress really tried to keep things moving. We ordered a rice ball and garlic bread as appetizers,and a medium pizza for the meal. We received the rice ball right away followed by the pizza. The garlic bread finally arrived after we had completely eaten our meal. The prices were fair... More

Referred to us by a local. Absolutely LOVED it! Price range was very reasonable and the food excellent. Actually owned and run by this warm, old Italian guy, Luigi, and he will cater to what you want.

The first thing an Italian restaurant needs is a good Bolognese, and Luigi's is fantastic. That makes the rest of his food really good too. When I asked Luigi if I could buy a carton of the Bolognese, he said no because if he sold his sauce, nobody would come to his restaurant! Well, that's probably true because ambience is... More

The service was almost comic tragedy, the food was solid, the place was packed, it was well regarded, so I'll be back to try it again. Those rice balls looked very interesting.

Luigi is not just a restaurant, he is a man. Luigi is a real character as you'll see when he stops by your table to ask how your meal was. Try his home made garlic bread, rice balls, gnocchi and the pizza is great.
