“Nice surprise, Solid food, Affordable, Friendly”
Reviewed April 24, 2014

Nice neighborhood Italian spot, with a real Italian family running the place and, best of all, cooking. Good variety of pastas and house-made sauces that are so good and authentic. This has that distinct feeling and taste of a place run by people who know what they are doing, and who want very much for you to come back. Truly fine chicken marsala, moist and flavorful.

This raised the bar in Ottawa, and the surrounding area.

“Best place to eat in town!”
Reviewed April 9, 2014 via mobile

This is without a doubt my wife and my favorite place for dates. My family chooses it first whenever given a choice too. The food is delicious, the staff charming and the atmosphere excellent. A must try for any food lover.

“Worth a hop off of I-35 for utter deliciousness”
Reviewed February 26, 2014

Luigi's is a fantastic place to eat. You can always get the regular menu items with an option to try something new every night. Great for a date night or a gathering with friends. Staff are very friendly and the food is always wonderful. Check out the calamari or mussels for an appetizer and follow with a fab tortellini or the clam linguini (I got the red sauce). My husband and I eat here almost every time we go out for a date. We also bring our guests here to show off the crown jewel of Ottawa's eateries. This is a "must try" for all foodies.

“At the top of their game for a large group including 11 children.”
Reviewed February 6, 2014

Visited here on a VERY frigid evening so the place looked dead and we were second guessing ourselves. Ended up a very good choice. Atmosphere was incredibly comfortable, even though we were all in jeans and it was a white table cloth setting. Lovely. Service was attentive and thorough; kept tables cleared, bread coming and drinks topped off. We easily took up half of the front portion of the restaurant, but they didn't overlook anything. The children devoured their meals (lasagna & fettuccine alfredo). We got the Spinach Lasagna. Absolutely mouthwatering!!! The ONLY thing we weren't crazy about was the "meal" only included the main dish, ie no salad/vegetable, bread was unlimited.

“We drive 20 miles each way just to eat here”
Reviewed January 1, 2014 via mobile

Luigi's was recommended to us by a restaurant owner/friend in a different town. We gave it a try and are hooked! Did not expect to find an Italian restaurant of this caliber in little ol Ottawa, Kansas. It is shockingly good! The family that owns the place is from Italy. Food, service, ambiance, everything is first rate. If this place was in New York City, it would be the talk of the town. I'm glad this jewel is in Ottawa, Kansas..
