Good food but tables are crowded

The food here is good, but unless you are in a booth, expect to be feeling like you are in the conversation of the table next to you. We prefer the Royse City location, not as nice a facility but more casual and room to have conversations.

Great restaurant with atmosphere and very reasonable prices. We had our son's rehearsal dinner here several years ago and it was quite successful. We eat here quite often and are never disappointed.

The pasta is cooked perfectly - not stiff, or gooey from being overcooked. Sauces are very flavorful and the whole dish is served at the same temperature - not cool pasta and hot sauce. Service is fast and thorough. One of our favorite places to go after church.

Italian food was good and we were there with some other families. Everyone seemed to like their meals. Service was real good. This place has been around a long time in Rockwall, so with that said it definitely has to do something right to survive.

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

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.

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.
