Awesome food and service blends into one incredible experience. The family meatball and fried calimari are great starters. Look for the short ribs with Sunday gravy over fresh linguine on the specials. If it's not, on chance they've whipped it up in the past. On your evening out if Shannon is your server you've hit it out of the park.... More

Food was good. Very fresh. Generous portions. However, if you are looking for a quiet dinner, this is not the place. Restaurant is small, dark, and noisy.

This was my first time at this restaurant and I will definitely return! Some of our party of eight was delayed but they let several of us sit before the remainder of our group had arrived. Since we hadn't seen each other in a while we were busy talking rather than looking at the menu. Our waiter never rushed us.... More

I have been going to Luigi's for many years. The food is always delicious, with excellent service. A few of my favorites are the Seafood Risotto, Veal margarita and ravioli bolognese. The bread is amazing and so is the a delicious pesto and olive oil it's served with. The restaurant is pretty, and casual. It feels like your dining at... More

So many Italian Restaurant to choose from locally however this one is outstanding. Menu is extensive and from what I can see, it's all good. Two nights ago had me eating Shrimp & Lobster Risotto that was the best I've had in many years. Here's the best that I can offer. I would drive to Manhattan for the Risotto alone.... More

Luigi's is dimly lit and boisterously cheerful during dinner. The pizza selection is good and we always have a small one as an appetizer when we choose to eat in the restaurant as opposed to ordering out from their small take out section around the corner from the restaurant. My personal favorite is the dinner featuring hanger steak. It really... More

Every so often we come here, sit at the bar, order a bottle of wine and a few dishes to share. Although, the bartender never remembers us, he does reintroduce himself to us each time, and is usually attentive. The brick oven pizza with burrata is fabulous, as is the short rib ragu (subbing their freshly made pappardelle for whatever... More

We were seated promptly on a Friday night by friendly staff. It took a while to take our orders despite the restaurant not appearing very crowded. Our food arrived as requested but was nothing better than I could have prepared at home. I would try going again to see if it will be better.

I'm a lover of good Italian food, and Luigi's is right up there at the top. A group of us girls go there frequently (we call ourselves the "Pesto Queens" because we absolutely love their complimentary pesto and focaccia bread!). Service and atmosphere very good. The only reason I didn't give them a full 5 stars is because they recently... More
