“Excellent as ever”
Reviewed 25 February 2014

We have been eating at Luigi's on our annual visits to the Lake District since the mid 1990s and checking it is still open is the first thing we do on arrival in Ambleside.

Last Thursday (20 February) we dined there at 7.30pm with a party of four and everything was excellent as ever. A reasonable price (£100 for three courses for three plus two courses for one including wine). All the food was well cooked and beautifully presented. The service was good and all in all a very enjoyable evening. We hope to return next time we are in Ambleside.

“pasta pleasure”
Reviewed 5 January 2014

a small intimate place with a small limited menu but quality food. The service was good with a lovely young friendly waitress and all in all a tidy experience.

“A lovely experience.”
Reviewed 1 January 2014

Felt very relaxed as soon as we walked through the door. We were downstairs as we had the dog with us. A bowl of water and a bed were there for him, the fire was burning and the music was lovely and relaxing. Staff were very friendly, as was the chef. We both had pasta dishes which were tasty. Would definitely recommend. Thank you.

“If you're looking for authentic Italian, do not go here”
Reviewed 4 December 2013

From the outside, it look liked an authentic Italian. From the inside it was cold and rather tired. And the food....let's just say that I am not a great cook, but even I wouldn't have served up a pasta dish with quite so much water on the plate.
