Restaurant details
Reviewed November 11, 2012

I love Luigi's! If you think Bakersfield has no foodie culture places then you thought wrong. This place has the best of everything and anything Italian Delicatessen. Not to mention its 100 years old!! This place is a Bakersfield institution. I love the amazing deli next door that often gets over looked. It has several gourmet varieties of cured meats and cheeses. The store also has many wonderful seasonings, herbs and a great variety of fresh olive and balsamic oils.

As far as the restaurant the food is AAAAmaaaazing!!!! The restuarant is very casual and family style seating with 5 star gourmet food! The steaks are the best I have ever had. I have heard the chef ages the steaks 15 extra days so, thats they melt in your mouth. How often can you say a steak "melts in your mouth"? As far as the pasta, its as fresh as it gets. I would recommend the brown sugar and sage ravioli! Talk about heaven on earth.....If there was ever such a place Luigi's is it!

This place has been around for decades, and is one of the best places for lunch in town. Everything tastes homemade and you can tell they are using family recipes that have been around for generations. Their sauce is awesome and the salad dressing is the best! If you are here for a day this is definitely the place to go for lunch.

This is truly the best place to eat in Bakersfield for lunch and if you are invited to the wine or private party dinners it's even better.

Awesome atmosphere, people, food, ambiance, everything.........

This is a place that keeps getting better. Keep it up Valpredo Family!!!

If you are passing through Bakersfield, visiting or live here you cannot miss dining here. This is a long time restaurant know for their food. Pasta, beans, sandwiches, steaks and salads. You can't go wrong.

We got to this restaurant at 2.30pm and the hours on their website say Tues to Sat 11.00-2.30pm, so we thought they were closed, but they seated us and said their hours are confusing. Even the door said closing 2.30pm, but they don't close until 4.00pm. The deli next door sells souvenirs and wine. The service was so friendly and a really neat atmosphere with a variety of photos all around the walls. Long tables with chequered tablecloths for large groups. Small tables for couples, etc. The salad we had was amazing. The waitress/Manager melts brown sugar and butter and cooks walnuts and pecans in this mixture which coats them and makes them go all sweet and crunchy. These are sprinkled over the salad - delicious! We had burgers and they were superb. This is a great place for lunch and I found it by Googling "best lunch in Bakersfield". It sure was!
