Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Our first visit and we were very impressed. We were greeted warmly by the waiter. The restaurant has a lovely ambience. We arrived at 5.00 pm on a Tuesday evening and by 7 pm all the tables were full, that speaks for itself! The food...was wholesome and delicious, we had 3 courses, all perfectly cooked and presented. The staff were attentive but unobtrusive. Absolutely can’t wait to go back!More

I had read great reviews of this restaurant on Trip Advisor... which were correct. We arrived quite late on a Thursday evening but were warmly greeted by the waiter. He was very welcoming, funny and jolly. The food was delicious with hearty portions - exactly...what we wanted. Good value too.More

After leaving what could only be described as the worst dining experience at an establishment just down from Luigi’s we were met as usual by the most wonderful staff who were very accommodating and attentive. The service and food was fantastic, we have eaten here...many times and will continue to do so! Pizzas are really authentic and watching them being made gives so much reassurance that the food provided is fresh and the establishment is hygienic. See you again soonMore

Another fantastic meal at Luigis!!! Warmly greeted with menus from Kaleka and drinks quickly provided by Jessamine. The wonderful Claudio took our order. Lovely starters, bruschetta and garlic/caramelised onion/balsamic vinegar bread. Husband had calamari (lovely) and cousin had chilli prawns for starters and Claudio brought...extra chilli oil as he requested they should be very hot! Cousins had a huge diavolo pizza each for mains, husband had a very tasty Dover Sole, mother in law had her usual lasagne and I had pork Marsala which was absolutely gorgeous, very moist and a nice generous portion (along with a side of green beans). A nice red to go with it helped it along its way! As always perfect service, charming and friendly staff and lovely buzzy surroundings. Always have a great meal here in lovely surroundings!!!! A great place for everyone! Missed the lovely Sam but lovely to see Kaleka and the perfect Claudio again!More

The pizzas are huge and over the plate. Quality fresh food served by an efficient team. The house red was very nice. Great value - a lot cheaper than the high street chains.

First time visiting Luigi's - what a treat! Booked table (for 5pm) via their website and received confirmation within 30 minutes. Dead easy process 👌. Arrived early and had a stroll along the quay and riverside park on a beautiful late September afternoon. The car...park was relatively quiet and there weren't many folk around. Wandered back to Luigi's just on 5 and we were greeted by two staff members, who escorted us inside and up the stairs to the dining area. There were half a dozen eager diners already seated, to our surprise. We were shown to table 14, midway down the room, next to a window with rooftop views. Plenty of space between tables so it felt "roomy"and when the tables around us were taken this didn't change. A large glass of Sangiovese for the birthday girl and sparkling water for me (driver), followed by garlic bread as a starter. In reality, as we aren't big eaters, we should have passed on this, because it was probably enough for four people and we couldn't manage it all - it was absolutely delicious though 😋 Mains were Rigatoni Pollo Pancetta and Penne Arrabbiatta (with the chicken and mozzarella). Both meals were well presented and more than adequate portions, well cooked and, again, delicious. After a relaxing few minutes we were offered the dessert menu and both chose the Bannoffie Pie. Excellent choice! After that we, neither of us could have eaten another thing!!! We didn't have a "designated" waiter but we were well looked after by several of the Staff. By 7pm the restaurant was almost full, including a gathering of about 20, and it was bustling, which on a Friday evening is to be expected. It was difficult to have a conversation due to noise level but we managed. It was a terrific atmosphere and a delight to see so many family gatherings, a typical Italian passion. The cost was just over £60, which I think, given the quality, was about right. I added a £10 tip because we felt the Staff were brilliant. We will return but most likely mid week, as that suits us better.More
