“An Akron tradition”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

Luigi's is an Akron icon that any visitor to the area should stop at. The food is terrific. The pizza is my favorite of any that I have ever had. Salads are huge and their other classic Italian dishes are excellent as well. Why only 4 stars then? Too expensive...by a lot. A large pizza will cost at least $20...and its not that large. Also be prepared to wait...there always seems to be line when we go there...which isn't as often as we would like because it's so expensive!

“Akron's most over-rated eating?”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

I have family that love this place, but truth be told, it isn't great. Locals love it I think more for nostalgia than quality. The portions aren't great, the quality isn't superb, and the lines are long. Had the lasagna once (once). Two long lasagna noodles, some cheese, and pasta sauce (nothing stands out). Their salads are iceberg lettuce (don't ask for a salad with cheese as they'll suffocate the salad with shredded cheese). The pizza is good, but there are much better options out there (Pizza Bogo or DaVincis, though neither of those are sit-in).

The price isn't bad, but having to wait in line to have average Italian just doesn't work for me.

“Delicious!”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

Great food and friendly enviroment. I wouldn't say that they are "authentic" Italian but food they serve is delicioius. Just remember that they do not take credit card (which is a bit of a hassle) but they do have an ATM abvailable when you forget.

“Classic Italian Restaurant”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

Been around for years! Everything is good. Lasagna, salads, pizza. Pleasant atmosphere. Family type restaurant. Old decor, but that is expected.
