We are definitely surprised that this restaurant receives anything but glowing reviews. Normally our rule when travelling is to only eat local cuisine but we made an exception and did have dinner at Luigi’s (we figured we could then celebrate our anniversaries at Italian restaurants since finding Bajan restaurants after leaving Barbados wasn’t going to be easy). We loved the... More

Tried this place a few times, the lasagna was good. Lots of families in there, good atmosphere! Tried the opinion soup and that was the only food that I wouldn't recommend, very wish washy, not at all like homemade soup. All the other food very good.

Went here as a family of 4 and were very impressed! Bruschetta was one of the freshest I've ever tasted and the clam pasta was beautiful - definitely recommended if you're staying in the area!

Shocking is a gross understatement.......I wish I could rate it zero! I have no idea how this restaurant has so many good reviews because I cannot believe any are possible! The menu on line does not match reality! The food quality is frozen food/boil in a bag. Barbados has many, many fabulous restaurants with first class service - this place... More

The restaurant is run by an Italian couple who have been long time residents of Barbados, but remember how to make a good pasta and have a decent wine list. Nice music too - Italian opera. They do best on the pastas but the secondi are good - you are better off with the simple traditional items. Spicy seafood dishes... More

Not on the water but the food is really good! We were there for dinner in April and really enjoyed the pasta.

Good home made Italian meal, very quiet the night we went in but gave the owner a chance to have a chat. Made very welcome, loved the complimentary bread so much they gave us some to take away. Don't be put off by bad reviews go and just doge for yourself

We figured we would be safe with an Italian restaurant. Unfortunately, this place is more hype than delivery. And there wasn't much hype. I can produce a much better plate of pasta from a box and jar at the grocery store than Luigi's. Maybe that's what they should start doing. At their prices, they could certainly afford to. It's also... More

Dear David R thank you for the time you spent to write a so useless review. Every review, good or bad it is, to be helpful to the restaurant itself or to other readers, has to be a bit detailed. There is always room to improve, especially by the mistakes. What did you wrote? You can produce a much better... More
