My wife and I go here for special occasions...birthdays, anniversaries, etc. The food here is fantastic, and the ambiance is very intimate/cozy. My wife is Italian, and knows cooking, and loves this place! Our service has always been good, but our favorite waiter left the country to go back to Italy a year or so ago, and his level and...

Went to Cafe Ludovico again Saturday night to celebrate a wedding anniversary. Made a reservation days in advance and got seated promptly at a nice table. Waiter came by and offered drinks and then came back to tell us the specials. We ordered a calamari appetizer to share and then a special salad with Buffalo Mozzarella cheese to share and... More

I visited here with my mother on a Friday night. We both knew it was more of a fancier restaurant, so we were probably holding it to a higher standard. I really liked the atmosphere of the place, it was very pretty, but it was also comfortable. We started off with splitting the Arucola e Parmigiano Salad. I was unpleasantly... More

This was our first visit to Casa Ludovico. We were invited by friends who have been there several times and like it a lot so we had high expectations. We were very put off by the fact that it is was valet parking or nothing despite the fact that the parking lot was almost empty when we arrived. We were... More

This was our first time at Casa Ludovico, having just relocated to the area, in search of the special occasion restaurant. The restaurant is set in a renovated 1920's home and is cozy and intimate but with some space between the tables. Our server Juan was delightful without being intrusive, the service was impeccable. We started with a caprese salad... More

We are Italy now and on our return will be heading to Casa Ludovico to bring back the memories. One of the best Italian Restaurants in the states in which my wife and I have eaten.

We loved the food. The restaurant is loud at times, when crowded. The Veal dishes are to die for! A bit pricey but nice for a special occasion. Great service.

We have been eating here about 10 years. It is consistently good. They have fantastic service. It gets busy around 7:00 so call ahead for a reservation. Always accommodating and glad to see you. Its a cute old yellow house which is a nice change from strip malls and mega restaurant chains. We have tried for years to find another... More

No need to make the trip to Italy for excellent food! This was our first trip to this restaurant. We were highly impressed with the ambiance of the century-old house....as well as the service & the wonderful food. The Bruschetta was divine...no little baguettes, but rather a 1/2 loaf of italian bread. We sample two of their salad & both... More
