Luigis Original Restaurant
Award winning pizza, lamb chops, prime rib, pasta and seafood specialties in a nostalgic local landmark. Full bar, extensive wine and beer. Carry-out available. Opened in 1953 as a neighborhood pizzeria, this nostalgic local landmark has grown over the years to include more than the great pizza still being served. An extensive menu and full service bar that has something for everyone, if you donac2t mind a bit of a wait, cozy quarters, and a friendly clientele. Luigis is open seven days a week to provide delicious food and exceptional service. Our, loyal, dedicated staff, many employed for over 10 years, recognize our guests as the acoeregularsac that they are, and look forward to welcoming those acoefirst timersac.
The customer service is lousy. We placed a carry out order for pasta at 3:55. Was told that the order would go in at 4:00 when the restaurant opened and would be ready at 4:15. Arrived at 4:15 and the order was not ready (no big deal); at 4:30 we walked out. Obviously, the order was never fired. Three pizzas went out while we were waiting, the kitchen staff said nothing, did not ask what we were waiting for or offer to check to see what happened to the order.
Excellent food, good service. Beware it's very small though and most likely you'll have to wait for a table. It's worth it though. The wine list is small but I found out that they do have wine that's not on the menu, you have to ask! The prices are very reasonable for the quality of the meals.
There is nowhere in the area better for prime rib than Luigis. I never knew i was such a big fan of beef until i had this. I didn't know meat could melt in your mouth like that. Though i have to say that the downtown location has been better but they are both great. I dare to find anyplace better..
Luigi's Original as well as Luigi's Downtown are a must when you visit Boat Town U.S.A. Ambiance and food as well as value are second to none. Call ahead to reserve seats for the Original location because the occupancy is limited. The Downtown location has a higher occupancy level. One thing is for sure, the staff will make you feel right at home...Enjoy!!
