Visited for Saturday night family birthday celebration. I had a great 3 course meal. Beautifully cooked fillet steak with one of the best peppercorn (this one with brandy and cream) sauces I've had. Mango and chocolate cheesecake, having nearly not ordered it, surpassed expectation! Restaurant deservedly packed to capacity. Will keep going back!

Every meal we had in our three courses was amazing! Food tasted fresh, was served quickly and piping hot. We felt we was always well looked after and the waiters looked like they really worked as a team. Compliments to the waiters and to the chefs on recreating mammas tirimasu!! It was to die for! If only I didn't live... More

Family meal. Service efficient. The garlic bread to start was ok - not the best but not bad. Melon very nice. Mains - Pizzas ok but not as good as can be had nearby. Pasta wasn't as enjoyable as elsewhere - not bad but not quite there.

Don Luigi's is a great Italian not too far from Formby Village. They have a huge range of gorgeous Italian food, we always have a great meal here. They do an offer 5pm-6pm any pizza and pasta for £5.95 which is such good value. I also love the holiday feel you get when going here.

The food was perfect, we all had 3 course all different choices and there was not one bit left on a single plate! would certainly go back... More

A lovely evening spent celebrating my daughters birthday. Greeted by friendly staff who were attentive but not overwhelming. The food was lovely & service was good. We weren't hurried out when we had finished. We will certainly visit again

I was part of a large group of 20+, our 2 long tables were pushed together in the far corner of the room, we were all on top of each other and leaving your place to go the bar or toilet was a nightmare. Yet the rest of the room was empty.
