We originally made a reservation for six on New Year’s Eve. At the last minute we asked to add four more. In spite of being fully booked, they accommodated us! Food was fantastic, especially the Penne with Vodka Sauce and Shrimp. Several people on our group had the Seafood Trio (a special) and they loved it as well! We will be back the next time we visit Myrtle Beach.

We went to Luigis for our anniversary dinner with some friends and it was great. Everybody loved their dinner. Waiter was very attentive and the food was great. I will definately come back. The only thing I would change is the bread. I would like a more crusty bread but that's just my opinion.

The food as always was very delicious. I always get the Salmon Mediterranean as it’s my favorite dish at Luigi’s. Great Italian food and great atmosphere. Ralph does an amazing job playing the accordion!

We visit at least 4 times a year since as we live in Charleston, SC. Always on our planned restaurant stop list. So is Enoodle but different cuisine. Food is great and always repeatable. Never a surprise. Never been disappointed. We have been eating here for the past 5 years regularly. Recommended to us in passing on an elevator visit while at the Embassy in North Myrtle. This is a regular staple for us in Myrtle Beach now. Small and cozy, but really good food. I compare it to Little Italy restaurents in San Diego, CA and those in Boston, MA.

We go to Luigi’s every year when we are in Myrtle Beach. This time, Mike was our waiter, and as with everyone who works at Luigi’s, he didn’t disappoint! Very knowledgeable, helpful, attentive and just nice in every way! Such a pleasure!

The service was awesome - great team of attentive people. The food was really good. It wasn't the best Italian food I've ever had, but it was good enough that we will have no issues going back :). The spices infused in the olive oil served with bread gave it a great flavor. Dinner entrees were above average - I added spinach and mushrooms to the chicken alfredo and it was quite tasty! The chicken was a little thin and dry, but it was still good. I brought half of it home with me - it was good left over too. The chocolate bomba dessert was awesome and definitely big enough for two people to share! Looking forward to going back.

We went while visiting Myrtle Beach for our anniversary. We love good Italian and we were not disappointed. The food was fresh and delicious. Our server, Larry, was wonderful. We would definitely go back if we are ever in the area again.

I was at Luigi's with 5 friends down from Massachusetts for a golf junket. I guess the best thing is could say is we were there last Monday, and we are going again tonight (Wed). The veal was just so tender, the salads were great, the bread was great (always a good sign), our waiter was right on top of it. i could not recommend it more.

We found the food and service to be outstanding. Maria was personable and knowledgeable, giving us the right amount of attention. The seafood trio (get the grouper option) was very tasty and more than enough quantity to satisfy.

Great restaurant. Easy to find-good directions. Seated on enclosed porch. Lovely setting. Good selection of items on menu. Meal was served in a timely manner, hot and delicious in every way. Thanks for a delightful evening to celebrate our 53rd anniversary. Will definitely tell all of this gem and hope we travel back to Myrtle Beach again!

My appetizer (the mushrooms stuffed with crabmeat) were almost inedible; 2 of the 3 mushroom caps were either overbaked or had been sitting in the sauce way too long. They were so soft, they almost fell apart. It was really hard to eat them. There should have been more bleu cheese in my dinner salad. It was also very loud. The only reason we might consider coming back is that there was a children's menu.

Decided to try Luigis only from reviews . First time as we were vacationing in Myrtle Beach. Was pleased that what we ordered was "made to order" therefore we waited a bit longer than another restaurant but no one minded. Excellent assortment of entrees and was extremely wonderful and delicious. The only con was the restaurant was very chilly and I saw many patrons complain to waiters. Air was adjusted finally at end of our meal and fans turned off. Otherwise ambience was nice but that evening place was full so noise level somewhat loud. Not necessarily quiet dining. Would go back again when in the area. The manager came to check on us and took our payment which was considerate and that means a lot. Larry our waiter was very informative but busy.
