Girl friend and I shared clams oreganata, delicious whole clams baked with thick bread crumbs, delicious. Then shared fried calamari, perfect. Then she had tortellini alfredo, I had gnocchi a la Luigi, both terrific. My gnocchi was with chunks of prosciutto and peas in a pink sauce, every morsel just wonderful. Having had a "little more" to eat than we... More

Luigis is my favorite place to eat. Always on the money never a bad meal. My favorite waitress Donna was working and always helpful in our decision on what to have. Shrimp fra Diovlo was the choice tonight. Perfectly seasoned and plenty of food. Hot pepper and potatoes appetizers are fantastic. Flounder franchise is the best Ever!!! Another great meal!!

Excellent chicken parmigiana, best I've ever had. The chicken was perfectly sliced, breaded and cooked. The vodka sauce was delicious. The house salad was amazing, the dressing was out of this world. The place is clean and the service is friendly. Wish I lived closer, this would be my regular spot.

I was meeting my brother and his wife for an afternoon get together dinner. Saw this on trip advisor and thought we would give it a try. Driving here was a little frightening because the area looks a little rundown . BUT ....OMG this place is absolutely fantastic!!! The restaurant is very small. We began with an order of bruschetta...

I love coming here food is always great and they give you enormous portions. You always bring home leftovers here. I took my Nana here for Mother's Day and the food was excellent and service is right on too. I highly recommend this place to eat dinner or lunch.
