“good food poor service”
Reviewed March 10, 2013

We eat at Luigi with friends for lunch on Friday. We sit outside in a warm winter day.
We ask for 2 fish dish portions and 2 pasta dish.
We told the waiter that we need that the eggplant with Thina and one fish portion should be without any dairy product because allergy to this kind of food.
He bring the eggplant with yogurt on the top!
In generally the food is tasty and the portions in the right size.
The price is reasonable but the service last Friday was terrible.
Go there with a lot of patience, and if you don't have time' try other place.

“Was great but moved”
Reviewed March 1, 2013

This place was a great restaurant on Joel Solomon Street but it has since gone out of business or moved. The four cheese gnoochi is the thing to get.

“Luigi Italian Restaurant in Katamon - Very Good”
Reviewed January 22, 2013

This Italian restaurant at Shai Agnon 35 in Katamon (a branch of the restaurant in the city centre)
is informal, friendly, and with good food. Went one cold winter evening in January without making a reservation and found a table. I had the salmon steak and it was mouth watering in a white wine sauce, My partner had the tuna steak which was just right and not too dry. The fresh salad was really fresh and plentiful. We could have a full dinner for two for 195 shekels but we didn't want the desert and half bottle of wine. Highly recommended place to eat.

“Really horrible, and not at all kid friendly”
Reviewed August 12, 2012

This is a terrible restaurant, even for a kosher dairy joint. Just some quick points to make sure I help anyone I can avoid this place:
- Cold creme brûlée
- Inedible pasta
- Half the menu not in stock
- Kids play equipment old, broken and dirty
- Manager (or owner?) sat next to us and refused to talk or make anything right
- Undressed "Greek" salad
- Sweet young wait staff apologized for their own restaurant. We hope they got jobs somewhere decent.

“If you want a kosher dairy/fish Italian restaurant in Jerusalem , this is above average.”
Reviewed April 29, 2012

Extensive kosher dairy/fish menu. Food is tasty but while some of the items sound exotic, taste is average to a bit above. Homemade pasta was good but not special. Check eLuna.com to print out a 10% off coupon.
