Great food

These guys have grown from a small place in the strip mall to a free standing Building with ample seating....if you get there early. Have seldom been there when there wasn't a line. The food is out of this world and the service is better than you would expect at any restaurant at any price.

We're from Nj and unfortunately this is not our opinion of Italian. Service was poor- waiter called everyone 'boss,' served meat sauce instead of meatballs and then brought a side of meatballs - meat overkill. I ordered beef medallions medium rare. They were served a medium well and def not filet as they were full of gristly fat. The sauce... More

Great food, great service and great decor. The food was fantastic, the service was prompt and continuous. I stopped by for dinner and was immediately sat with great service. The food was excellent with large portions, enough so that I passed on the dessert. An absolute must for Italian cuisine lovers, when in the area.

I always order the house salad with chicken and house dressing, and never need a to-go box! Fresh, tasty, and just right with the warm bread and butter they serve at Luigi's. Big enough for groups like Rotary, Chamber meetings and clubs, I would definitely recommend Luigi's.

I love their bread with the marinara sauce. The pasta select is made fresh. There are two to three waiters attending your area.

This was a company party/evening event. About 45 guests being served salad, pizza and soft drinks. Food and drinks were very good, as always. On previous occasions, the service in their private party room has also been excellent. On this occasion, getting the attention of servers as new guests arrived was extremely difficult. They definitely needed one more experienced server.

We're building a new home in Heath and a pair of soon-to-be neighbors has been introducing us to the local fare. Most recently we met at Luigi's Italian Cafe on a Saturday night for dinner. We walked in without a reservation at 6:30 and were immediately seated, but pretty much everyone who came later had a bit of a wait.... More

Luigi's is a Rockwall staple. It's had a simple formula for years: good food at reasonable prices. My favorites are Linguine with Red Clam sauce and Eggplant Parmesan. They are both near authentic Italian. This is not a "fine dining" establishment but good food with value pricing.

We had a very large group of 100 people for a swim dinner on Valentine's day. We had to start at 10:00pm when the meet was over. The restaurant was amazing. The staff was so hard working and did it all with a smile. The food came out hot and quickly . Not easy with this size of a group.... More

The food is excellent, the service is, as well. It's well suited to conversing and having business meetings because you can actually hear someone speaking at normal volume. P.S. They tend to undercook the pizza. So, if you like the cheese nicely brown in lieu of simply melted, tell your server that you like pizza well done.
