I love almost everything this places makes - pizza, pasta, garlic bread... but i ordered a pepperoni calzone once and it was really awful! it was all ricotta and dry dough - nothing else! i had to dig and dig to find any of the pepperoni! Otherwise, you guys have great prices and fast delivery.

I usually love Luigi's. Excellent when it comes to basic pizza-related delights (like chicken parm, etc.). The pizza is "OK." I've certainly had better pizza. Nothing wrong with that, of course. Luigi makes a good enough pizza. However, the other night, we tried the prosciutto pannini. This was easily the worst pannini I have ever seen or tasted. I don't even think it was real prosciutto - it seemed more like dried out Canadian bacon. Moral of the story - keep it simple at Luigi's. Pizza = OK. Chicken or veal parm = excellent. Calzones, etc = also quite good. The prosciutto pannini was terrible that night. Maybe Luigi was not in the kitchen. Who knows... On an unrelated note, the chicken cutlet salad is pretty good.

I have been dining at and ordering in from Luigi's for years. I can say that they honestly have amazing food and their prices are very fair. Their grilled chicken garden salad comes with a heaping amount of chicken (more than you would get in a restaurant) and is half the price. Their pizza is terrific (great vegetable slices) and their shrimp fra diavlo is one of my favorite dishes. However, the staff at Luigi's is by far the rudest and unaccommodating group of people I have ever encountered. If you don't speak spanish, they will talk about you in front of your face (they didn't realize that my friend understood them). They barely respond to any questions you may have about the menu etc., and when they mess up your order, they give you an attitude. I know several people who refuse to go back b'c of the staff, but I continue to go for the food. Someone however, needs to speak to these guys about appropriate behavior and 'class.'

Next time you go to Luigi's , try the chicken marsala, served on top of linguini boiled in a garlic butter sauce. If you do not like pasta, then have the chicken marsala hero;that sandwich can serve 3,espeically with the melted mozzarella on it.A side of garlic bread fresh out the oven, and as an appetizer, a chicken ceasar salad can't be beat.Just wish they had a liquor license. I have not visited the new location as yet, but i will shortly.

Cant speak to the rest of the food but it is THE best chicken parm hero i have ever had. Service can be kinda slow, and it gets cramped and crowded waiting for take out, but my God its worth it. Pretty cheap too, which is unusual around columbus circle.

I used to eat here frequently. In midtown, it was the best pizza by far (baring Johns). BUT, the pizza is not the same. No where near as good as it was and i attribute that to a new oven at the new location. The vibe is very different as well. It used to be a place for comfort food. Now it has essentially become RAYS. And there is no lower pan than that.

Agreed that the service is erratic. I don't think their pizza was ever too good, though it is leaps and bounds above others in the area.
