Very nice pizzas

We went for lunch with a groupon and were a group of six. The pizzas were very nice and the service very good. We didn't experience much atmosphere since there was a lot of people.

We could not get hold of them to make a groupon booking. Waste of my time and energy. Won't try calling again.

Bought a groupon voucher and trying to redeem it. Only answering machine with message that owners are on holiday in June, but I phoned on the 23rd of July! Ridiculous! Phoned again on the 24th - no space to leave messages anymore - memory full. Not the way to treat first time customers. Will ask Groupon for a refund -... More

We hadnt been to Luigi in Hout Bay for years but seeing as they were offering a groupon we decided to take it up and try it again. No wonder they have groupons. It was shocking. From start to finish. First of all they only had TWO waitresses for a FULL restaurant. It took 15 min. to bring our menu.... More

This is a wonderful friendly authentic Italian. We had take out pizzas which were so full of flavor and generous toppings. The cost was unbelievably low for such quality.

Slow service to start. Reasonably priced, restaurant a bit too noisy - too many happy birthday songs (every 5 mins) food was good: lasagne, carbonara both good portions wine good (Italian Montepulciano) but bought from Woolworths!

A Hout Bay landmark for years now relocated to a dark and quiet corner of Mainstream shopping centre...not a good move but hopefully it's regulars will continue to support Still good honest Italian fare but it's just that....not the venue for a romantic dinner for two... Hope the new location works out guys I think we will only use now... More

We have used Luigi's Hout Bay since the late 90's & I am afraid that despite keeping trying it has never been as good as when Luigi himself owned & ran the place.... Luigi's style & attention to detail was Italian through & through. Sorry to say that the present owner, Tony, doesn't have nearly the same style or success... More

Nice restaurant, nothing special, good pizza's, pasta's could be better and certainly more original. A bit old fashion, but good Italian family restaurant.
