Serves great with excellent food

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.

Like a previous post stated, "Great Rolls!" Super service, moderate prices, nice atmosphere. We did not wait at all when seated, drink orders and appetizers were prompt. Food was very warm, not like it was sitting around the kitchen waiting for a pick up. Water glass was never empty nor the rolls ever vanished, ha. Not only did the waiter... More

This is one of three Italian restaurants in Rockwall. I don't know what kind of pasta they use, but it just is not my favorite. The flavors are bland and I always want to add more garlic and/or oregano. The service is usually good, but I find I wait longer for my food there than most places for not being... More
