Born and raised in Duronia, Italy. Luigi Berardo took after his families heritage of creating homemade-gourmet Italian food and in 2006, founded Luigi’s Olde World Market in West Chester, OH. After 16 years in West Chester, Luigi expanded to Mason, OH to build a branch location which will feature a meat market, deli, and a full service restaurant and bar.

Executive Chef Steven Sidoti prepares Italian cuisine with classical methods as well as unique touches that enhance recognizable favorites. Chef Sidoti is also proud to prepare featured dishes and courses, which we will announce throughout the seasons.

To compliment your meal & experience, Luigi's offers: a wine list with an Italian flair, cocktail menu and local craft beer.

We are located in the heart of Mason, Ohio at 404 2nd Avenue and look forward to serving your family & friends.

Grazie e a presto!

    This was our 1st trip. It moved up to one of our favorites. On their website there were a few complaints about portion size. They were not small, but on the flip side there weren’t huge! We split a Caesar salad ( an extra cost) had our own entree and split the cannoli 2nice size pieces). We are stuffed! We can’t wait to go back to try something different!

    Ambiance was nice. That’s the best of this place. Had the shrimp scampi and it was awful. Tasteless and the shrimp was over cooked and odd tasting. Very overpriced for what tasted like a reheated frozen dinner. Had high hopes for this place but it did not deliver.

    Very nice place. Friendly staff. Food was great. The only issue we had (they had a really good explanation) was that they are unable to serve liquor on Sunday. This is due to a license they need to serve on Sunday. But overall it was a great experience

    They were short staffed, which is not unusual in todays climate. However, my salmon was over cooked to dry & crusty on the one end. Server said I ordered it well done done which was inaccurate. The risotto was good on top, but crusty on the bottom as if it sat in the warming plate too long. The asparagus was like tree trunks. I tried not to complain, but did summarize when asked how the meal was. I did not appreciate the lack of response from server & management who only responded through the server. Not pleased!

    We were anxious to try the newer Italian restaurant near us. Unfortunately, we were not that thrilled with our experiences. tables were all crammed together, it was very loud and service was VERY slow. The menu was great for carnivores, but not vegetarians. Even if you ordered one of the dinners and asked to leave off the protein they still charged the full amount. Everyone said their meal was just mediocre. For the high costs of food these days we were expecting more.

    Bread was very tasty. Our appetizer was the shrimp. They were giant! I had the sea bass which came with mashed potatoes & asparagus. This was very good. My husband had the pork chop which also came with mashed potatoes & asparagus. He added the Caesar salad. Everything was good except the pork chop. It was too well done. He said that it was like a brick. He neglected to bring it to the attention of the server. He said the next time, he'll just order the spaghetti.

    Our reservation was for 5 PM as so the restaurant was very quiet. The air-conditioning was blasting but we were readily accommodated in our request to modify it. The prices were comparable to similar restaruants. The appetizer ordered was arancini which was tasty but could have used a bit more cheese filling. The amount of wine in the wine by the glass was quite reasonable. One dish ordered was the pasta carbonara ($19). On the menu, the dish comes with bucatini but tagliatelle was requested (there is no spaghetti and the linguine is spinach linguine). It was as if the egg yolks were not cooked enough as the pasta coating was described as "sticky". The other order was for tagliatelle bolognese ($18). This is the proper pasta but the sauce was more like a red sauce with meat. There was too much tomato and the taste of milk or cream was lacking to me.

    This is not "fine dining". This is "very good dining", as in delicious food, good service, moderate prices, and a cheerful atmosphere. All of the personnel we encountered were cheerful and helpful. The food was tasty and in large enough quantities to satisfy without being excessive. The decor is far from fancy, but clean and tasteful. The noise level is moderate--you don't have to shout and you don't feel compelled to whisper. I intend to go back soon.

    The food was amazing! The chicken piccata was the best I have ever eaten. The chicken was perfectly cooked. The lemon butter sauce had just the right tang. I loved it! Everyone at our table was happy with their dinner. Our waitress was abrupt, very loud and talkative. She left for a long period of time when more drinks were needed. The ambiance was lacking. My biggest complaint was how bright the room was, making the room a little darker awould give the restaurant a more sophisticated vibe. Next time I’ll sit in the bar which has a Frank Sinatra “Rat Pack” vibe. Food was outstanding!

    Food was about 7 out of 10. Had the chicken Marsala and it didn’t taste like a reduction sauce but like a gravy. Best part of dinner was the bread. Waitress was pleasant but had too many tables. Service was very slow and this was not only the fault of the kitchen but also took our waitress a long time to return to table to check j us. We were looking forward to trying Luigi’s hoping we had found a new local place to eat. Sadly, we were not impressed and won’t be back.

    It was our anniversary. Our server was friendly. We were early and the food was served quickly. The music was a little too loud. The salads were nice. The scallops were good and the bolognese was fine. Good place for s basic middle of the week dinner.

    It was a Friday evening, and despite being very busy, we had a very attentive waiter who made helpful selection choices. The food (I had the veal piccata and my friend had the Chilean sea bass, was good but not great. I am sure overall, the experience would be better on a weekday evening, as the chatter was loud and the place was very busy.
