Great lunch specials, pasta and pizza are always fresh and hot! The salad is excellent...that cheese! Fun atmosphere, old but very well kept. Surprises in every corner.

Best pizza in the Akron area. There is always a long wait, but it is worth it. Their salads and Pizzas are legendary. FYI- the restraint is cash only. Luigis is an Akron icon, with really cool Akron area memorabilia decorating the place. They have a great old jukebox.

No long review needed. One of my favorite places to eat for years. The double tossed salad with cheese is an absolute must. The pizza is amazing and so are all of the other dishes.

A brisk walk from my hotel, and I was greeted by the manager who immediately made us feel welcome. The wait staff has been there for years and it is known amongst the locals. The old time family Italian restaurant. Get the pizza or the lasagna. Avoid the hoagie, it is just OK. Fried Zucchini was moist and perfectly cooked.... More

You will probably have to stand in line for a seat if you go anytime around "normal" meal hours, but the wait will be worth it. The salads - more like cheese with a sprinkle of lettuce underneath, are great. The main courses and pizzas are also very good. My favorite pizza is the number 9. The lasagna is another... More

My mom who is now 82 started going here as a teenager and got me eating here at a very young age. I have never been disappointed in the food. Sometimes there's a line out the door but the wait has never been to bad. Their pizza is my favorite from anywhere and the lasagna is also awesome. If you... More

We stopped by Luigi's on a weeknight between Christmas and New Years. We arrived about 4:50 thinking they wouldn't be too busy. We quickly sat in a booth near the door. Service was pretty quick and food was good. I got the salad (which has as much Mozzarella on it as lettuce...too much cheese for me) and a pepperoni pizza,... More

Luigis is the place to go to visit a real Akron icon. Their pizza and pasta are delicious. They also have a little "band box" that shows a musicians and a singer moving around whenever someone plays the jukebox. It is pretty noisy there and there are often lines to wait in. But it's a real Akron experience!

Thank cfchic
