The waiters were very polite, but the food was awful. We ordered two lasagnes and they both tasted like frozen microwave oven lasagnes. No taste, no seasoning. Extremely expensive for such awful food. Don't recommend it at all.

During two weeks job in Petropolis I visit Luigi Restaurant several times , I ate the pasta not bad but for our culture overly seasoned. Not easy abroad eating well "our" pasta but this place is approaching us, even the appetizers are not bad. Approved!

This is a traditional local Italian "cantina". They could use a few more vegetarian/vegan friendly dishes. The service is decent and the pasta is good. I recommend the spinach lasagna. They have a pizzeria open at night next to it. The location of this restaurant is great, in front of a square that is one of the biggest tourist spots.... More

It was the second time I've been to Petropolis and had lunch at Luigi. Great service and delicious pastas. That's all you have to know. I'd recommend you try one of the lasagnas , you won't regret.

A portion of the menu is not available at lunch. Even if pizza is on the menu, when it was time to order it we were told that we cannot order pizza. Very disappointing.

Quaint house in the heart of Petropolis. Extensive affordable menu. Pizza Place. Good Wine list. Overlooking Praça da Liberdade.

We had various problems with staff: the host was unhelpful, not giving us a menu when asked, not showing us to a table (she latter blamed it on her very advanced pregnancy). Our waiter, Luiz Carlos, was very rude. When we asked about the pizzas, he said only "traditional" ones were served at lunch, he also warned us about how... More

It's hard to know where to start. I think we just called at a bad time as the restaurant appeared to run by children (many of whom seemed to have pretty good English), and was not very busy. We were sat at the one unlaid table in the restaurant by the Inspector Clouseau of waiters - who had zero idea... More

This restaurant was nice and so was the building. The menu was okay and had good selection of pastas. We ate pasta made in owen and it was good. The service was also friendly.
