I should begin by mentioning that this was my first time to eat at this establishment. Just OK for me. I can get OK Italian food at Olive Garden, which is not what I was hoping for here. There was nothing spectacular about our meals. We each ordered a salad rather than a hot appetizer. The salad was good but it was enormous. It was more the size of an entree than an appetizer. Seating is EXTREMELY close together unless you are seated in the center of the restaurant. I could have easily reached over and taken the salt off the couple next to us’ table. You can’t really talk to one another for having to drown out the conversations happening on either side of you. I will take the responsibility for not calling in to make our reservation so that i could let someone know I was celebrating a wedding anniversary. It’s definitely worth checking out, but it just isn’t for us. I tell my employees all the time to treat every customer as if they have never been with us before and to make sure they leave knowing they got our very best.

Very expensive food was good but not worth the price. There was a large group sitting next to us and was very loud. I had to almost yell to be heard by my date. Service was great, server was very attentive. Interior was beautiful with decent live music

My husband and I love sneaking away to Luigis for a date night, however on this occasion, we were celebrating two birthdays. We had a wonderful time! Luigis is such a special place to go. The food is delicious and the wait staff is always friendly. I love the atmosphere, too.

I went here for a little late Valentine's dinner. The experience was pretty good. I had a reservation for 8:00 and we didn't get seated until 8:30, even though when we finally got seated there were plenty of empty tables. For what you get, it is a bit overpriced. However, the food was of good quality and is prepared nicely. The portions are rather small, but that is acceptable due to how upscale the restaurant is. The atmosphere is very romantic, and the decor inside is superb. Overall, 7/10. I would eventually go back for a special occasion, but not right away.

Mediocre at best. Vegetables were under cooked. Alfredo sauce was dry and skimpy. Scalloped potatoes were different with a hint of brown sugar. Salad was good. The veal was nicely done.

I really enjoyed my food, but had bad luck ordering things that they were out of. First the wine then the entrée was not available. There were so many great choices that it was easy to find something else.

Really good food and overall service. Only complaint is there were several large groups that we were seated near which were extremely noisy. It made it very hard to hear the talented piano player who was on stage that night.

We chose to have dinner at Luigi's for a "quadruple date night" for Valentines. I am so glad the online reservation worked, and highly recommend using it! The staff was overall good at what they did. The food was good. Slightly better than Olive Garden, and priced about the same. Not a large food quantity, which is good if you are trying to limit the carbs and calories of intake. The atmosphere was AMAZING. Wow! What a setting! I am happy to recommend Luigi's as a great place to bring a date, or for a special dinner.

Nice birthday dinner for my husband. Music was great, as always. Food was great. Veggies were mostly red bell peppers, which isn't my favorite but that's just me. Potatoes were plated using an ice cream scoop like cafeteria style. I would suggest going back to previous way of plating mashed potatoes. We will be back. We always enjoy coming here and we love the music and ambiance.

we usually love our night here at Luigis, but our entrees were not prepared as well as usual. We had the scampi as an appitzer and it was the best that we ordered that evening. We also had a salad that was good as well. But when it came to the entrees, it was a different story. We had the fettuccine alfredo with shrimp, there was little to no sauce. We also had the eggplant parmesam. There was absolutely no marinara sauce or cheese. It just was not the regular from here ... We were ver dissappointed tonight.

Reserved this for family guests from Georgia and goofed on date of reservation. Staff were very accommodating and found us a seat . Food was fantastic and we had a wonderful time. For us the music was a little loud at times for talking but great music. I am sure we will go back soon.

Been a few times and is one of our favourite places to eat. Usually a good all round place to eat and sometimes with live music. On this occasion we had a table at 8 pm and I felt the service was a little rushed

A relaxing birthday dinner was ruined due to a piano being tuned the entire hour we dined and a slow waitress. My 11 yo son requested this place as “the atmosphere was relaxing”. We arrived for a 530 Birthday reservation to find the piano player tuning his piano which created an annoying headache for all in my party.
Even though it was very slow, our drink order took 15 minutes.
The lasagna was the best thing about this dinner. It was huge and very tasty. The porterhouse was thin but did have a great taste and texture.
We won’t be going back anytime soon.

We love Luigis, have a reservation we make at open table three months in advance. This month we were moved from our regular table. We didn't make a fuss, but hope this was a one time occurance.

We always enjoy the jazz music played at Luigi's but particularly on the first Sunday of each month when a larger group performs. For that First Sunday make sure and make a reservation as it has gotten quite popular.

Dined Sunday night at Luigi’s. My family, party of four. My husband ordered a steak. When the waitress brought it out she asked him to cut into it to make sure it was cooked to his liking. He ordered his steak medium rare. It was clearly on the well done side. He told her and she responded “I’ll have To get with my manager to see if we can work this out”. About five minutes later he came over and asked me husband if he would like them to cook him another steak. He confirmed that he would. The other three of us ate for about 15 minutes when they brought out his new steak. It was cooked better. As we were finishing our bottle of wine and dessert, the manager came back over to our table and told us that the next reservation for that specific table had arrived and we needed to leave. He offered a free dessert Good on our next visit. There were 20-25 other open tables in the restaurant. He can rest assured that free dessert card won’t ever be used. We are frequent diners and will NOT be coming back. And I will make sure I tell as many people as possible about this situation and how INAPPROPRIATELY it was handled.

Excellent as always, never disappoints!! Upscale yet casual Mediterranean atmosphere. Jazz trio was entertaining yet not overwhelming. Food is always AMAZING!! Best fish of four was the Filetto Di Dentice. Service is outstanding and we plan to return many times again!! A local hit!
