Portions are enormous, but I strongly recommend almost anything is their red sauce. Frankly the pasta was average, but the meatballs and sauce are noteworthy.

I've been there a few times with work colleagues and never had a bad meal. The service has always been great, the quality of food is good and will go back again.

We ate dinner here with several college friends. The menu is extensive with many choices. The portions are large, expect to take home a doggie bag. The server was very attentive to our needs. The inside of the restaurant is very small, which gives it a family-style feel. The parking is on-street, but we had no problem at 7PM.

Been here with my husband, kids and with two other couples and each time enjoyed the generous portions, friendly service, and delicious food from appitizers to cappachino.

A group of 20 retired former business associates of mine and myself have made this Italian restaurant our "Christmas Luncheon place" for the past several years. The appetizers are very good, the lunch selections are many, and they allow you to BYOB. The service is very good and the staff takes care of your every need. It is a relatively... More

Waitress service was great however food not so great. We ordered three appetizers the smelts, fried calamari and rice balls. Smelts came out and immediately stunk of fish and were not good at all -- not fresh. The odor was quite overwhelming. Rice balls were good but ice cold in the middle. Calamari superb. Main courses were fried fish platter... More

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. All were excellent, especially the eggplant rollitini. Then we had 2 pastas. The Penne with Vodka sauce was one of the best I have ever tasted. Then a bean salad and the two entrees, tilapia and...

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
