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!

My husband and I ordered steak medium rare. It arrived with perfectly cooked mixed vegetables for me and pasta for him.The beef was tender and flavorful. Our friends had eggplant Parmesan and Bronzino as their choices. The eggplant was highly praised. We have been to Luigi's before and have never been disappointed.

Hands down, Luigi's has the best Italian food. Their chicken margarita sandwich is my favorite for take-out - the chicken is done perfectly and is so light, the mozzarella is fresh, the roasted tomato is always done perfectly... Put that on the *best* focaccia bread with a little bit of balsamic and I'm in heaven! : ) I always save... More

What a great restaurant...when the food, service and environment are all A plus, you can't go wrong. We were 10 people on a busy Saturday night, not easy to begin with, but the staff was terrific. We made lots of substitutions to our choices and everything we asked was done without question. All the orders came to the table exactly... More
