Went to Luigi's yesterday afternoon for a small family dinner, family style. We had clams oregnato, antipasti, fried calamari and eggplant rollitini for appys.

This is an excellent local establishment for lunch and dinner, they often run lunch specials and for less than $12 you get a multiple course meal. The salad is always fresh with the house dressing it's delicious. Chicken franchise is to die for and their pasta is homemade. Service is great

I have been to Luigis many times and I can say for the most part the food is good but inconsistent. I find that lunch is much better than dinner. The only reason I can think of is the chef must be different. Overall, it is a good value BYOB in North Newark.

I have dined here for lunch often over several years and consider the food quality, taste and presentation consistently excellent. Try anything on the menu and you won't be disappointed. Small restaurant and great prices. Ambienance is nice and servers make you feel like you're at home.

After a funeral for a friend of mine, we had the repast at Luigi's. There was 25 of us. We had reservations. Everyone said their meal was really good and plentiful. Many of us had the $8.95 lunch special, which was soup, entree, and pasta or salad. The service was spot on. The entire meal for 25 for merely $255.00.... More
