A guy from Jersey in Dornoch? Running a restaurant? A really good restaurant? Indeed. Chris was born to be the front of house. While this is not as common in the UK this style is so common in fine restaurants in the States, Italy and France. It works here probably because of all the tourists but it also works because he is so good at it and product coming out of the kitchen backs up the boasts.
We just go with whatever he suggests and dine happy. The only drawback, and this is so common in the UK, is that the wine list is just a bit too thin (although what he does have is well chosen). Have heard they have a great lunch too (we're always on the golf course during the day) and while they are not open for dinner on Sunday he gave us several good recommendations for our meal on that night. This place is good enough to stand up in any of the foodie cities on the West Coast yet they seem to be happy in the remote town of Dornoch. Lucky Dornoch and lucky us when we come to play.

Went to Luigi's whilst in Dornoch on the back of reading a review off Tripadvisor and was very impressed with Chris and the teams restuarant.
The place is always busy so make sure you book and the menu and wine list has plenty of variety.
We loved the food so much we went again the night after.

When in Dornoch this is a must! Luigi's is rather famous in town for its great food and certain kind of quirkiness - at least I thought it had a quirky charm. On our first attempt, we were told that the proprietors run such a popular spot that they can open and close when they want and there are some days when they decide to not open. But when it is open, do not miss the chance.

Luigi's, owned by a transplant from New Jersey, USA offers a limited number of main courses. But the offerings are excellent with fresh fish and farm products that have been cooked and presented expertly. They are also happy to accommodate dietary restrictions.

This is a lovely restaurant with an excellent menu choice. We had a plate of mixed Italian meats, olives and cheese which was fresh and extremely tasty, followed by an excellent ciabatta. Coffee and cake (with a second helping of cake) completed this very pleasant lunch stop. The service was very friendly and efficient. It's really the only place in Dornoch to eat - very good.
