Surprisingly GoodLooked at several Italian restaurants in the D.C. area, but were unable to find very many that had specific items on the menu. Found a couple that did, only Luigi's had reservations available on the night we wanted to dine. We were greeted and seated immediately. Soon we were served our ordered drinks and appetizers. Calamari was exceptional. Our main course arrived and each of us in our party(4) enjoyed our meal very much. Service was very good and attentive. It is a bit crowded between tables but OK. Very noisy. I wish they had music to help offset the chatter in the dining area. It would be a nice touch. Overall, a very good experience.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMI go back again and againFamous Luigi's is a perfect combination of atmosphere and taste. The restaurant has tasteful music, candlelit checkered tables, but most importantly fine cuisine. The menu is so extensive that I can get something different every time I go and always be surprised by a delicious and satisfying meal, down to the rolls they bring to the table. Good for any occasion, I take everyone there. And for DC, it is extremely reasonable considering its quality.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMBest pizza in townHave eaten here many times and there is never a surprise . Consistently good. Pizza is the best but their other dishes are equally delicious. Good wine list and moderately priced.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AM38 years since our first visit38 years since our first visit and we keep coming back...with family and friends for special occasions/celebrations. Just as fun whether it's a quiet family birthday celebration or a lively group of 10-14 friends. The friendly staff is welcoming and attentive to all, and make a visit to Luigi's more than a meal. Several staff members have been there as long as we've been coming, and haven't aged a day...nor have we!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGood selection of food, easyGood selection of food, easy going place, the waiter was friendly and helpful.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWent for a girls lunch duringWent for a girls lunch during work, although it was during lunch rush it wasn't too crowded and we were able to get in and out in a hour. Our waiter seemed a tad confused but I think he was new. The portions we huge and I only ate half my pasta so I had lunch for the next day!4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMUnfortunately, our pre-reservationUnfortunately, our pre-reservation meant very little, as our 6:45 reservation didn't happen for about an hour later...3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMMy office is about a blockMy office is about a block away and so whenever I need to go for lunch with somebody and want something a click above sandwiches, Famous Luigi's is always a good choice. I'm from North NJ where the Italian food is particularly good and FL's can hang in there with them. I just took 7 people from my team out to lunch. Lunch of three very good pizzas cost about $70. And a good time was had by all.
One caution. I made the reservation through Open Table and they had no record of it when we arrived.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMNicely tailored menu!Our party of 4 enjoyed pre-marathon dinner. The specials on the menu had been crafted with pre-carbing in mind. All four entrees were top notch, served piping hot. No room for dessert, but willdef go back again and end the meal with something from the tempting dessert menu.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
