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

Main courses were fried fish platter... More

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.
