This place is off the beaten track a bit but no doubt the area will be gentrified soon (looks like it's started). They don't take booking (usual call in and receive a text when your table's ready) but we called in at the winery around...More

Went for small birthday party, a couple of our group had been before and highly recommended. So often that builds up expectations and leads to disappointment, but definitely not the case here. Server was friendly, efficient and knowledgable. Food came quickly, and was superb. Bread...More

Love this place for brunch. If you go early, say before 11am, then chances are you won’t have to line up. Their banana bread is the bomb! Order it as an appetizer and then have a pasta each. There is no reason why not to...More

Visited Ask for Luigi for a business dinner in May 2019. This restaurant does not take any reservation. It's very popular, so you need to go around 5 PM to be seated when they open at 5:30 PM. Good gluten free options were available. They...More

Luigi's may be tiny but from the service to the food it delivers big time. The menu is not huge but there is ample to choose from - 6+ appetizers, 6 mains, 3 desserts and 1 or 2 evening specials. Oh, and the menu changes...More

How do you describe the perfect Italian restaurant. It's "Ask Luigi". From the "wonderful staff" to the delicious food we had a truly excellent visit with our Vancouver based daughter. We ordered dishes to share which allowed us to experience part of the range of...More

Ask for Luigi is the actual best Italian restaurant, bar none in Vancouver. Doesnt look like much from the exterior, its small, but it serves just the best food. You cannot go wrong with anything that you order, but I will say the french fries...More

Come early - Ask for Luigi is small and popular and they don't take reservations. Once you are in... the pasta is amazing. Some creative menu items and all delicious.
