This area has a lot of Pizza stores, some good, some average. Luigi's ranks up there with the best. Try the food I am sure you will enjoy it.

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

We having been enjoying this establishment for years. It is a family place with a warm feeling and great food. Last week while seeing the cherry blossoms we stopped. The clams oreganata were extremely salty as was the chicken special. The veal chop I had was perfection. Service is excellent and it is BYOB.

This restaurant by far is one of the best in Newark, NJ - the staff are wonderful and the onwer, Luigi, is always around making your dining experience one to remember.

They cook the way your Italian grandmother did. Nothing exotic - just good basic Italian food. At home grandma would make hot Italian peppers and potatoes. Never saw it on a restaurant menu until I ate at Luigi's. If you like chicken soup Italian style, you'll love theirs. I made the mistake of bringing some home for my wife to... More
