Highly recommended, especially for the value. – Luigi's is the type of family-owned place that I'm more than happy to patronize, to the point that when I'm hungry for Italian it's tough to go anywhere else. The quality of the ingredients and the recipes are all top-notch, with rich, complex flavors. The goings on in the kitchen are front-and-center when you walk through the front door and they clearly put a great deal of care into the quality of the food. One quibble is that the menu isn't very diverse -- it's more the American perception of Italian food (lots of tomato and cream sauces) rather than an actual general representation of Italian food, so don't go looking for polenta or risotto. Also, the bread and salad that they serve as starters are instantly forgetable.
Growing Old together... – I've eaten at Luigi's since he was located at the other location. The food is always the BEST, the service is good, the prices are fair, and I start thinking about when I will come next before I finish the current meal. It is THAT good...the spaghetti sauce is made right there and D&%$ it is da BOMB!
It's a bit of a drive from the south or the north, but gas up and go. We love it!
This place has the best pizza I have been able to find so far in Southern California. Always keeping an eye out for good pizza. Since I grew up only and hour and a half from Chicago, I have high expectations. This place has good pizza at a good value.
Editorial Review – Italian chicken, pasta, veal and seafood specialties, plus New York-style pizza and hot or cold sandwiches; catering is available.
Anahiem for ever – Followed you from the days on Lincoln. Food is always hot, good an fast. Ambience is fun, fast and "family" you always see someone you know. You know what your going to get and it's always worth the price.
Luigis, We love you. – I've been going to Luigi's since they opened, and everyone I've told about Luigo's soon agrees it's the best Italian Restauant in OC. Dominic was the best (God rest his soul), and made everyone feel at home. EVERYthing on the menu is great, and I've tried it all. When we moved to Seattle, they gave us a bottle of wine to take with us, and everytime I fly back to OC I go to Luigi's. simply put, there's nothing like it up north...or anywhere!
very pleased – service was great luigi came and made us feel welcome, considering are waitress was off she still took are table and did not rush us she was very polite and cared that we were there, she got a very good tip for her service....p.s. the fried mozzerala is the bomb!!!
Recommend – If you want to eat at an excellent North East (New York City) style Italian restaurant this is the best one I've found in Southern Ca. Over the years I think I have had every pasta dish offered. They are all excellent. This is nor a fancy place but the food is about as good as it gets. In the kitchen is Luigi himself. He takes great pride in everything he creates. Pasta dishes cost between $9.00 to 15.00. Steak, fish & pizza are also on the menu. There is ample parking in back.
Former Customer – My waiter never smiled and barely made eye contact. Made us feel as if we were bothering him. Service was EXTREMELY poor. They apparently are unaware that no matter how good the food, customers won't come back without good service. The mgr could care less!!
