Mama Luigi's is an icon in Bridgeview. The food is authentic Italian but the restaurant could use an update. Too dark and dingy inside. If you don't care about the atmoshere it's good food for the money.

“Good food terrible service”
Reviewed January 19, 2014 via mobile

It took 6 of us 2 1/2 hours to eat. The food orders were slow coming and wrong. We had to stack our plates to have them removed. We had to ask for bread and water. The food was good and it was worth the prices charged. Service was just so terrible it makes you not to want to go there again!

“Fresh Look Good Food”
Reviewed January 10, 2014 via mobile

They just recently remodeled the entire restaurant and simplified the menu. The food is very good and the portion size's are large but the service is kind of slow. At one point I was wondering if they were slaughtering the cow is in the kitchen, because we waited so long for our food.
If you go for dinner give Mama's Gravy a try; You won't be disappointed!

“Venerable Italian Restaurant”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

Mama Luigi's has been owned by the same family for over 60 years. The place is somewhat dated, but it still serves up great italian dishes. Been coming here for years. The service is very
good, generally. The food prices are great and the wine list is adequate.
