I took their advice and tried it

After driving by several times I did a quick trip advisor read on this place and they all are honest reviews. I went for the salad with homemade blue cheese dressing and a side of meatballs. Salad could use some work but the dressing was excellent and the meatballs are delicious and large. I'm 6'3... read more

We came here while we were waiting to get our tire fixed. The waitress was an older, scary lady. Curt, almost rude when she took our order. Food was good. I liked my pizza and my husband said his Chicken Parm was tasty. They need to hire people who actually want to work there and won't scare customers away.

The Alfredo sauce was made from scratch once we ordered. I had the chicken parm and he breaded the chicken and pan fried to order. The best Italian I have had in a long time. Don't let the location or the older building keep you from going. The food is worth the trip. The chef who was also the owner... More

This was the best place in Jacksonville for Pizza! Family owned for years and the nicest people! Skip to present day, horrible is an understatement! Nothing is fresh and now possible the worst service! Skip this place and get a tombstone frozen pizza instead it will taste better!

My colleague and I decided to try Luigi's for lunch since it is located close to our office.I need to say that this place is dirty! The waitress has a terrible attitude and both of us felt like we were not welcomed as guests there. The food was just that: American Italian. If you want overcooked spaghetti and a hunk... More

The new owner of Luigi's should be ashamed of himself. The food is NO LONGER home made, the meatballs are packaged, the quality is awful. Now for the service, I have never ever had such a rude waitress. She is an older lady with big glasses and she should be fired. I asked her about the meatballs and she admitted... More

This is my second review of Luigi's. I have been visiting Luigi's since 1976. Went this week and had an unpleasant surprise. I was served my food and found it was quite different. The food was good, but did not have the same unique taste as the many years in the past. I found out the establishment had been sold... More
