The food was great and the service well done. The only issue was the noise level which bordered on the ridiculous.

Have reviewed 4 other Italian Restaurants in MB over the past 4 months and have to say that Luigi's is now my #2 behind Sole. Food, and service are equal to Sole, pricing is slightly better than Sole, but Noise, and Desserts are the two items that keep Sole as my Number 1 choice. I'll definitely go back to Luigi's but only on a slower week night when it may not be as noisy. Could not hear the person talking next to you. They do have tables outside that might be worth considering if you prefer a quieter atmosphere, also try to get a table nearer to the front near the entrance vs the extension in the rear. Also, unlike most places near 17, this is NOT on 17, you have to turn west on 61st street. It is just a block off of 17, but hard to see until you turn.

A restaurant with this reputation should make their own salad dressings. Disappointed...
However the entrees were fantastic.

My wife had the Shrimp Scampi she asked for angel hair instead of linguini our server Larry who was fantastic told her "no problem" she loved it and she loved her salad. I had cheese sticks which were good they could have used a touch of parm cheese to make them great.
The wedding soup was very good but I didn't get enough parm cheese from Larry that was my fault. The Osso Bucco was very good the sauce was a little bland in my opinion otherwise I would have given them a 5*. The Mango sorbet was the best dessert I have had in forever if they have it you have to try some
All in all it is great food, service & ambiance and we will go back.

First time visit for five of us. Saw ad & coupon in CF newspaper. Although coupon could not be used on “Early Bird” items, it didn’t matter . The food was totally authentic Italian & awesome. One of our friends had fresh clams w pasta in a white sauce & couldn’t stop raving about it.All of our meals were fantastic.A definite repeat in the future.. Also, our waiter, who spoke with an Italian accent was cheerful, pleasant & attentive.

2nd time enjoying Luigi's great ambience and food. Accordian player was walking around but not near us. It was noisy but tolerable. Mikey was once again our server and full of playful banter. Service was fast, seating was on time (made reservation) and we all enjoyed our evening.

Whenever we vacation in Myrtle beach, we make it a point to have dinner here. My husband and three little boys love the food and the atmosphere with warm lighting, live Italian music, and excellent service. We had to wait to be seated despite having a reservation, but even still we’ll come back here again and again. One of my favorite places of all times!

The food was excellent!!! We had the veal parmesan and the chicken piccata. Both were absolutely delicious! There was live accordian music which was very charming and really added to the experience. This is a must if you're in the area. For the quality of food I thought the price was exceptional.

Surprisingly very good food for Myrtle Beach. Nice clean restaurant. Fresh homemade taste. Live accordion player. However for the age of the player he had no knowledge of the classic Italian music. Still worth a stop in you are in Myrtle Beach.

Just a note. I did call to make reservations earlier in the day for 10 people. I was told that it was booked. However open table did allow me to make reservations on line and the table was ready when we arrived.

I always love going to Luigi's when we come to Myrtle Beach. The food was and is always phenomenal and our waitress was very sweet until I handed her a coupon published in one of the tourist coupon books for 10% off. I guess she thought it would detract from her tip, however, we always apply our savings from our bill to the server's tip, as their job is very difficult. She wasn't rude, she just seemed a bit deflated, and when I handed her a cash tip she quickly wished us a good night and walked away. I bet when she saw how much cash I handed her for her tip, her mood may have brightened! We will definitely come again, as we love this restaurant and all of the staff.

A fine neighborhood establishment with many traditional choices and several surprises. Their bread was crispy, yet pillowy, served with a fragrant herbed olive oil. The Caprese featured the same olive oil along with a beautifulIy robust balsamic that was nonetheless soft on the palate. The Zuppa Del Giorno on the day we dined was Manhattan-style clam chowder, which had a wonderful smokiness that was a delightful counterpoint to the sweetness of the tomatoes. We had calamari twice, as an appetizer, fried with a very thin coating, as well as in the Zuppa di Pesce, and it was among the most tender we have ever had. The Seared Scallops with Basil Risotto was excellent and the Alfredo with Shrimp earned rave reviews. Service was attentive without being obtrusive. Overall an excellent choice for any occasion.

We were a group of 5 and all of us enjoyed our dining experience and will return. Several of us had pasta dishes: one manicotti, one lobster ravioli and one spinach ravioli each dish had a different sauce and all were delicious. Also one person had the grouper and another the seafood special both were, in their words “delicious”. Great service and value. An excellent choice for pre Carolina Opry Show meal.

My fiancé and I can be quit particular, but this dining experience truly got a 10/10 from us! I wish we lived closer so we could go back!!
