    We were greeted promptly and warmly, although we were forced to ask for the Magical Dining menu. The clam appetizer was superb! The quality of the seafood main dish and the stuffed pork chop were excellent, but both suffered from being covered by sauces; especially the pork chop! The sauce was not bad in and of itself but totally took over both the presentation and the flavor of the main dish. In fact, it even covered both the vegetables and the mashed potatoes. The dessert of tiramisu was quite average. While we were given a thorough description of the dish and the flavors involved, it was tasty, but not the best tiramisu we've had. All in all, a good base to work with, but the product needs to be refined.

    quiet and secluded in Heathrow, great menu choices. Caesar salad was best in town, fresh good portion size with homemade dressing that was authentic and delicious. Penne vodka pasta was delicious as was the veal chop. Astute service but not overbearing. Definitely will return. Hope more people give it a try, would be a shame to lose this local and family owned gems in Heathrow.

    We had been here before on several occasions but this time it seemed more "aging" than before. The decor hasn't changed in years and while menu was decent with usual things found in an Italian restaurant there was nothing truly special. We went on Mother's Day which is busy for all restaurants but if you advertise for this day you should be prepared. The service was slow and the wait for main course was unusually long. My wife had lasagne which was a little cool and I had the veal chop which was fatty and undercooked. I told the manager who quickly offered to make something else but I declined - he did remove the chop from our bill. We then went to the patio for coffee and finish our wine but was never offered any desert or coffee refills.

    I had high hopes for a nice local spot for dinner. Unfortunately this isn't it. We were seated in a nearly empty room (one other table taken) next to a large table but didn't think anything of it until the party arrived. Why would you seat a two right on top of a six in an empty dining room? The room did fill up later, but why do that. Salad was basically store bought bagged. The veal parmesan had an odd tasting sauce, that for some reason I kept eating to try to identify, next to a mountain of pasta. The Chilean Sea Bass (probably wasn't) was mushy not flaky as it should be.

    We have found a new (to us) restaurant worth every minute of a drive to reach it from anywhere in Central Florida. We went for Thanksgiving dinner and the entire staff outdid themselves. The food was SUPERB (who would expect such great traditional Thanksgiving food from an Italian Restaurant), the service was OUTSTANDING, the generosity of the food was overwhelming. We are anxious to return to taste their traditional menu. Owners and management checked on our table numerous times as did our server. We noted that the same service was given to all tables even those with 20 or more patrons. There are not enough accolades for our experience at Luigino's at Heathrow. What a find!

    Service was slow, although the restaurant was not very busy. Most of the food was good except the flank steak, which was tough and grizzly. Unable to cut or eat. Although it was sent back they did not comp the meal. Big mistake. That was the least they could have done since all the other guests were half way done by the time the new meal came. In addition we were celebrating a 60th Wedding Anniversary (which they ere aware of) and ordered one desert and they didn't even comp the desert??? Not very good customer service. Having so many other restaurants in the area to chose from, it will be difficult to make this as an option.

    Well.....where to begin. ...started with an Indian man running an Italian restaurant. ..so first impression. ..not authentic obviously. Next we sit down and after about 40 min.we recieved our appetizers not even a bread basket and did I mention we were the only ones in the resturant!!!!! Next aggravating thing the escargot was cold only to come back out after being put into a microwave!!!!!! Gordon Ramsey would have a field day with that one!!!! As far as my carpaccio.....well let's just say it was served with hockey pucks!!!.This was very dissapointing bbecause we were trying to have a quiet anniversary dinner without the kids......would have been better off with the kids and eating at a chuckie cheese!!!

Had planned to go to another place but after researching it, we weren't too impressed. Addittional big plus was that it was not too far from where we were staying in Lake Mary. Gem of a find...will return when we are back in the area.

    I have lived in the area for 26+ years, without ever trying Luigino's. So, when we did go a week ago, it was with a completely open mind. The menu was varied, and individual entrees were very tasty (I had a special with shrimp, scallops, linguini and spinach). Service was friendly, well informed and very efficient. The manager went out of his way to accommodate our large group and couldn't have been more welcoming. Overall, Luigino's was a very pleasant dining experience and I'll recommend it to my friends without hesitation.

    After reading reviews we had high hopes that this would be a new find for us while in the area. We arrived and were seated with a nice view of the golf course. After quite a wait, our waitress Diana, took our drink order and then our appetizer order. That is when things began to fall apart. An hour went by between the time we arrived and the time that our appetizer arrived. The restaurant wasn't busy. Our bread and appetizer came out together. Thirty minutes more pasted before the soup and salad were presented. When our food finally arrived, the fish ( both sea bass and swordfish), were perfectly cooked but weren't seasoned at all. The sea bass sat atop pasta that was also bland. Very $$$ for poor food and service.

    The food was flavorful and well prepared especially the filet marsala and chicken alfredo flatbread appetizers although there was a slight delay in getting each course out. The buccatini pasta (long and inflexible) in the entree and the canoli dessert (hard shell) were both a little cumbersome to eat but were still tasty. The atmosphere was spacious and offered a view overlooking a canal adjacent to a golf community. The music playing over the speakers was thankfully not the classic Italian restaurant playlist but was instead a string of varied pop 40 hits. We received considerable attention from the manager after each course was delivered to survey our satisfaction.
