Luigi's, proves you don't have to travel to Manhattan to dine on good Italian food.

The succulant sauce brings the pastas to the taste of my mother's cooking and of home. My wife and I recently dined on the filet of sole with capers, lentils and spinach. The marriage of ingredients was perfect. This also applies to the monk fish and sea bass. The food is outstanding and is matched... read more

My husband & I were first acquainted with this restaurant 5 years ago, when we came here for dinner & drinks with a large group of 15 friends.. We were so pleased with the quick attentive service, plus the server's accuracy with all our special requests and the good quality of the food, that my husband and I have been... More

I never tire of this place, I meet friends and also order takeout for work or company. The wait staff is great. I always feel welcome. When I know I will have a few drinks I walk there and home. The wine selection is great, the pasta and appetizers are yummy.

Luigi;s is not a destination restaurant but if you live or are visiting in the area it is worth the trip and the wait. The service is very good and the food is excellent. It looks and feels like an Italian restaurant should. They take reservations but don't count on being seated on time but it is worth a short... More

While realizing that a number of businesses are having Christmas luncheons at this time, Luigi's should not be scheduling reservations and not honoring them on a timely basis. We had reservations at noon for lunch and were not taken until 1245. We were offered their high top tables at the front to expedite are dining, which we did not take,... More

I finally was able to visit this place after our close friends recommendation. We took our mom and she was just as impressed as I was with all the aspects you would expect in an Italian restaurant. Food is not overly salted or spiced and portions are just right to generous size. Atmosphere is low lighting which I love. Full... More

I've been here many times and always enjoyed our meal. The food is excellent, but the service was a problem tonight. I can never understand when a server tries to impress by not writing your order down. Trying to memorize four orders and appetizers is looking for trouble. Sure enough, my wife's order came out wrong. When the manager came... More

I've been coming here for 20 years for lunch, dinner and small parties and have never been disappointed. The food, ambiance, wine list and service are always top notch. Their veal marsala sauce is outstanding and has set the bar so high that no other Italian restaurant even comes close!
