Nice ambiance; you have the
Nice ambiance; you have the choice of sitting in the formal dining room or the "outdoor" patio, which is actually inside but looks like it's outside. Very nice atmosphere, we chose "outside". The service was excellent and the food amazing. I could have eaten the bread as my dinner and been happy but the chicken parm (the one with eggplant slices) was a great choice. My wife enjoyed the Linguini alle Vongole Veraci (clams). For dessert we had the tiramisu and the chocolate tiramisu. Very tasty and my wife had a terimasu drink and I had a cafe latte, both tasted great! The bottle of wine was great with the meal. Also live music (jazz) began at 7pm which was excellent. It was a bit pricey but worth it for a special occasion.

We enjoyed Easter Brunch at
We enjoyed Easter Brunch at Luigi's and would definately recommend the restaurant. We have a high standard for food and don't give big compliments very often. While the service left a bit to be desired (the waiter did inform us he had just finished his training), the food was worth the trip. The bread with the garlic spread was very good, as well as the salad that comes with each entree. We orderd the red snapper, whitefish and the grilled chicken with grilled eggplant. The snapper and chicken were really good dishes. I would order the snapper again without hesitation. The whitefish was bland. The rice and grilled vegetables that came with the meal were also very good. We didn't order dessert, but there was a nice menu selection.

The food was good & it was nice to have the live band, but at times it was hard to hear my dining buddy talk. Also, the service was a bit slow.

Italian done right
With great food, excellent staff and an amazing Italian Villa setting, Luigi's is the perfect place for a wonderful meal with the family or romantic night out dining. Their live music Friday/Saturday nights is a wonderful compliment to their outstanding menu and ambiance. We love watching the owner play....he is awesome. They make an amazing Tuscan Margarita , and their lasagna is a favorite....when I am not eating the steak! I have tried almost everything on their menu, and it gets harder and harder each time to choose what to eat as nothing here has ever been less than delicious. You need to eat here!

Ambiance is a bit off, just an interesting place. Way too pricey for the food we were served

Luigi's continues to deliver a consistent experience - good food and good service. They fill up routinely so reservations are recommended.

I love the decor! It truly feels like you're sitting outside on a patio. The food is also quite good. We had a group of 9, and there were several groups larger than us there, but everybody had their own space. It didn't even feel like there were other people there!

Beautiful and delicious
Absolutely my favorite place to dine in the area. Food was right temp, perfect presentation, delicious, and plenty.
Very romantic dinner atmosphere.
And our service person was knowledgable and top notch.
A perfect evening. Oh and the cheesecake is to die for.
The live jazz is wonderful but a little too loud. But that won't stop me going again.

Nice Mother's Day find
Came here after spending the weekend in College Station for my cousin's graduation and wanted to take my mother out for brunch. Very nice atmosphere. The brunch menu isn't extensive (only on Sundays, as well) but everyone agreed the food was great. Fresh eggs and vegetables in the fritatta. Bloody Maries were also great. I'm not an expert on College Station dining, nor do I frequent the place much, but if in the city again, I would like to try this place for dinner and would advise others to do the same.

Good for kids
We like this restaurant because they are kid-friendly, and they are local. There are too many upscale Italian restaurants that are overpriced, and only for special occasions. Luigi's has a kids' menu which my kids enjoy. The food is pretty good overall so the adults can enjoy too.

Quality food and great service
Reasonable cost....slow turnover....always get a reservation because f you don't and you get there, the place s 3/4 empt and theywon't accommodate you because they are saving tables for reservations. This has happened 3 times...they need to figure out a way to manage this problem

I made a reservation online for my anniversary. The recognized us upon arrival, say us in the perfect quiet table as requested and delivered a great dining experience. Food timely, wine list reasonably proceed and good offerings, good service.

Love, love Luigi's !!
Luigi's is a comfortable, reliable and yet surprisingly refreshing restaurant! We've been there dozens of times and, without exception, leave for the evening saying, 'delicious!' and 'that was so nice!!' We go for romantic dinners and ask to sit in the indoor patio. We go for dinners with family, and they always accommodate a crowd. Music is super!! Service is superb!

good food. good service. handled special requests with a smile.

We loved Luigi's! We enjoyed the inside "patio" decorated with greens, umbrellas and lights, very romantic setting. Our food was delicious from the portabello/polenta appetizer to the bread pudding dessert. Had the snapper which was done perfectly. We would highly recommend coming here. Also enjoyed the live music and friendly service!

food was outstanding, atmosphere was awesome. only downfalls, the live music was very loud at times, but very good musicians. the server was a bit standoff-ish but nice and helpful

Good First Impression
My first visit included my brother's family along with my girlfriend and it was outstanding. Great Italian feel, very clean, good menu selections and if you're there on a music night and one of the jazz bands is there then you're in for a treat if you like that kind of music. I only had one thing that kept me from making this rating an all 5 star: 1) I ordered the lamb chops- VERY tasty, but hardly any meat and a boat load of veggies. For the price I would've expected just a bit more chop. However, don't let that sway you. The service was very good- there was an issue with the bill regarding charging gratuity on a few "to go" orders, but they worked with us and resolved it. I plan on going again hopefully sooner than later.

Unexpected gem in a college town
Our nephew had recommended this restaurant. We were pleasantly surprised at the experience. It is a lovely restaurant, with very nice music, a live jazz group, a nice wine list, and attentive servers. Based on other reviews we did make a reservation and were seated immediately. We will return to dine often.

Fantastic birthday lunch
Great food and terrific service topped off with a fantastic dessert for the birthday girl! Totally a wonderful experience.

Great food, Great music
We went with my parents to celebrate their birthdays and enjoyed listening to some wonderful music by Johnny and Lise while enjoying great food. We will definitely be back.

Luigi's has a great atmosphere with exquisite food and good wine. There was live music but it wasn't loud. I loved that the owner was out greeting his guests and making sure they were comfortable and happy. Try the duck and definitely leave room for dessert. We ate 4 courses and did not feel stuffed. We will definitely return.

An Oasis in College Station
We visited on a football weekend and had a great meal. The veal parmesan was excellent, but the lasagna astonished me. The pasta was old fashioned homemade and the sauce was a light tasty combination of bechemel and tomato. Our table was one row away from an excellent jazz quartet: bass, piano, clarinet and drums. They were worth the visit without the outstanding food and service. The noise from chatty diners did diminish the ambience a bit, but it was gameday!

Not a low priced restaurant, but very reasonable for the quality of food and atmosphere.

A storm moved in and knocked out the power...the staff took it in stride...candle lit tables, the live band kept playing and my wife and I enjoyed our meal as great as ever...this place knows service...Jim

I took my girlfriend to Luigi's
I took my girlfriend to Luigi's for our first time celebrating her birthday together. I hoped for a very comfortable, flavorful, fun, romantic dinner at a place with a great selection of wine and a warm atmosphere.
I got everything I had hoped for and more. I might be a little biased because I had dinner with the most beautiful woman but I would say that's a plus because nothing detracted from our night together. I was very pleased.
Thank you Luigi's for a great dinner and experience!

We took our son and some friends there to celebrate his 21st birthday. We had a great time. The place was perfect.

Meeting College Friends
The location was easy to find and we were seated quickly with our reservation. The food was very tasty. The only suggestion was to speed up the service a bit. Our dinner was just under 2 hours and luckily the company was excellent or it would have been a bit embarrassing.

Fine food, great decor
Food was excellent. Steak perfectly prepared. Not crazy about the jazz music. Maybe guitar or violin would fit the decor better. Italian music more befitting the patio decor.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
We have visited Luigi's twice and the food and ambiance is excellent. The service depends on your server. Amy is an excellent waitress. The girl we had this time was beyond slow. It took us (party of 2) over and hour and a half to eat a salad,entree and dessert. Please come try their food or dessert, just ask for Amy.

Great neighborhood find!
Small family Italian with a good mix of selections at reasonable prices.....not for kids or large groups....unless requesting side room. Bread is just OK.....needs dipping olive oil . Service is great....never overcrowded so good for conversations. Don't be seated close to entertainment if you prefer intimacy.

Good Date Place
I took my girlfriend here, and I was quite satisfied. The food was very good, but the ambiance was perfect. They have a little stage for live music, but it doesn't dominate the atmosphere. If you're looking for a romantic night out I recommend this place.

Excellent atmosphere! The
Excellent atmosphere! The restaurant is beautifully and authentically decorated. Especially nice to go when the outside weather is no pleasant. Food was great. Wonderful sauces, however expected just a little bit more for the dish we had. Only have tried one thing, and plan to go back to try something else!

We love the entertainment
We love the entertainment and the ambience! Our server, Zach, was outstanding, energetic, and very attentive. The meal was absolutely wonderful, but the bread pudding was out of this world fantastic! This is our favorite dining spot and we recommend it to all of our friends who are looking for a good place to go on "date night."

great live music that didn't overpower the room. food was outstanding and creative. chef incorporates unexpected ingredients in a way that is always pleasing to my palate. I would try anything he/she comes up with.
