Description: Luigi's Gourmet Express & Restaurant has been a Johnston, RI...
Luigi's Gourmet Express & Restaurant has been a Johnston, RI institution since 1971. We offer delicious Italian cuisine from our treasured family recipes passed down through generations. All of our breads and desserts are baked on premise. House specialties include the Veal & Chicken Parmigiana as well as many beef, pork, seafood and, of course, pasta entrees. We recently added Brick Oven Pizza and Gourmet Burgers to our menu. There is truly something that anyone can enjoy on our menu! We have a great wine list as well as many craft beers on draft. Our Gourmet Express offers a great variety of prepared foods, soups, salads, sandwiches, pizza and much more for café dining or take out. Our catering and banquet division can handle any of your entertaining needs either on premise or at an off site location. The Battista Family thanks you for showing an interest in Luigi's and invites you to "Come to Luigi's, where our family will treat your family like... family!"

Great location, within walking distance for me! Whether you're getting take out or dining at the restaurant, you can't go wrong with Luigi's. My favorite is probably the chicken parmesan, but everything I've had here is great! The service is always good, drinks are good and prices are reasonable. Plus they have a bakery with to die for cheesecakes!

Great atmosphere in a cozy type of restaurant. Not extremely pricey and always good food! Even the carryout is good in their separate facility. Having a party and need some extra food, this is the place to go.

Love how convenient this restaurant is for take out on the way home. They have great soup, panini's, and entrees. Ask for dinner rolls with your take out order and they will fill the bag. Service is a little slow, when its busy at dinner time, but its well worth the wait.
