Not authentic and nothing special..... – It was better than out-of-a-can pasta, but for stating that they are a "homemade" place, the pasta was def. from a box. and not good....It gives the feel of a "mom and pop" place with the wine bottles and the table settings, but I knew right away we were in trouble with the rice-type granular of "ground" parmesan cheese. A bad sign. Nothing special about the salads, nor the bread and assortments of crackers, and the wine was fine. The service was fair and the cheese garlic bread was bread with melted cheese and garlic and salt on top. We both ordered the spaghetti with meatballs; my wife the smaller portion and I the larger. There was no difference in the amount of pasta I got and what she ordered. The pasta was overcooked and straight from the box...absolutely. We both looked at each other and said the same thing. I even had to exchange one of my meatballs with my wife's because hers was cold. People that know good Italian food will know what I am talking about and for those locals that say this place makes authentic food, they must really enjoy the olive garden too. They may have a history with clients and that is great, but this place is nothing special nor is the food. I have heard the saying "how can you really go wrong with bad Italian food...' Luigi's will show you how!
Good people, great food with a deep family history. Amazing homemade salad dressing. Some of the best Italian food to have ever graced my digestive system.
Blah food, blah service, blah blah blah – We ate here once because we had heard such rave reviews.... man, were we disappointed. If you like your Italian food with no flavor, no imagination, and no flair, than this is the place for you. This chef obviously needs a refresher course in spices. All in all, I'd say barely a step above a can of Chef-Boyardee.
