Next door to our motel so handy to walk over after long time in the car. Nice staff, fairly quick service, bread provided wasn't Italian at all and food was not very exciting. No alcohol was served but BYOB was allowed. This aspect was a...first for us & we didn't have any B to bring.More

Not wanting to venture out too far from our hotel during a heavy downpour, we lucked out by choosing Al's Luigi's Restaurant. After driving all day in heavy traffic & rain, we decided to get off the road for the day at 4:00 p.m. in...Gainesville and eat an early, relaxing dinner. Our choice was perfect as the food was amazing. We started with the best Bruchetta we've ever had (the portion was huge!), my wife ordered the Chicken di Napoli and I had the Shrimp & Crab Alfredo Special. I had gotten my wife a bottle of Chardonnay & myself a bottle of Malbec at the nearby gas station and we enjoyed a delightful evening together while being showered with outstanding service. We highly recommend you take time to enjoy this great Italian food prepared by the owner who immigrated from Sicily around 30 years ago.More

Italian food, but no wine. They will allow you to bring in your own booze. The food was good. The service was good.

First Choice for a quiet relaxed dining experience! We bring in a couple bottles of wine, order two selections and share to get a taste of both . . . Several favorites, but our top picks are usually the sampler, lasagna, stromboli, or pizza ..... . True Italian Flavor! And the ROLLS! So good! Love the opportunity to have a nice long lingering meal to visit and enjoy, never rushed . . . Great atmosphere and excellent service every time!More

My siblings and I just hosted a surprise birthday party for our mother at Luigi's. The staff was so helpful in helping us make plans. The food was delicious, plentiful and affordable. Thank you, Sadie, Al, Nick and everyone else at Luigi's who helped make...Mom's celebration a success.More

Decided to try it again. Pros: Salad was made of crisp, cold lettuce, etc. with house dressing..................5* Alfredo pasta cooked just right and creamy sauce was excellent ................5* Waitress was perfect, friendly, always there with a smile, efficient................5* Cons: Shrimp was tough and leathery like...it was overcooked or maybe cooked in a microwave ( both or no-no for shrimp )....................................1* Scallops were all perfectly the same size and shape with little typical scallop flavor, probably "punched" scallops.....................................1* I gave only two stars due to the main dish's meats were not good. I only ate the alfredo pasta and sauce which were very good. My wife had the same dish and she did not like it either....only ate a few bites. This place is pleasant, clean, and well run. I recommend if you go here, order something different than we did.....according to reviews they must serve some very good dishes.More

My husband and I went here, while staying at the WinStar and reading that this was a “hidden gem” in Gainesville (only 10-12 minutes from WinStar). I’m SO GLAD WE WENT!!! It was awesome and is literally only topped by my Grandma’s homemade raviolis! I...wish we lived closer, so we could make eating here a twice weekly tradition! The food is amazing, the restaurant is clean and well maintained, and it’s family owned and operated by THE NICEST PEOPLE!!! This is hands down THE BEST Italian food in Texas!!!!!More

This friendly family restaurant has the most delicious Italian cooking. We eat here almost every weekend. It feels like home but with much better food and service. We do eat at some very nice restaurants with expensive prices but they can’t beat the quality of...the food here.More

Good Italian food for the locals. Their roles are some of the best roles that I have ever tasted. Every dish that I have ordered here has been cooked to perfection and has a good flavor of home-cooked Italian food.
