This is a wonderful friendly authentic Italian. We had take out pizzas which were so full of flavor and generous toppings. The cost was unbelievably low for such quality.

Slow service to start.
Reasonably priced, restaurant a bit too noisy - too many happy birthday songs (every 5 mins)
food was good: lasagne, carbonara both good portions
wine good (Italian Montepulciano) but bought from Woolworths!

A Hout Bay landmark for years now relocated to a dark and quiet corner of Mainstream shopping centre...not a good move but hopefully it's regulars will continue to support

Still good honest Italian fare but it's just that....not the venue for a romantic dinner for two... Hope the new location works out guys I think we will only use now as a takeaway or as last resort... Shame really as the old venue was much more buzzy and appealing

We visited this restaurant onthe 2nd of january 2014 and what a pleasant surprise awaited us. We were a party of 17 and was accomodated without a reservation. the reception that we received was nothing short of amazing. the food was good and they offered different portion options which is always good. the atmosphere was relaxed and jovial. The owner was fantastic right down to the impromptu karaoke. all in all a very good italian restaurant with the hospitality to match. Loved it! We will definately be back.

We have used Luigi's Hout Bay since the late 90's & I am afraid that despite keeping trying it has never been as good as when Luigi himself owned & ran the place.... Luigi's style & attention to detail was Italian through & through. Sorry to say that the present owner, Tony, doesn't have nearly the same style or success & has given up his prime location & moved to a lesser spot in the Mainstream area. This said, we decided to try to support him & give it another try..... we wished we had not bothered.... the service was dire, all the tables around us were complaining about the slowness & standard of service even some of the "old hands" (waitresses) who had been with the original Luigi seemed disinterested. The food was mediocre.
