This restaurant is underrated. We found it while wandering around Fortuna and looking for a place to eat. It wasn't exactly in the center of the town so I think it can be easily missed. It was quiet when we went but the staff was happy to have us. The Pizza was amazing. The Caesar salad was equally good. We... More

We chose Luigi’s for dinner because it appeared to be the only place open at 10:30pm on a Tuesday night. For drinks, I ordered a piña colada Pablo ordered a beer. Our waiter warned Pablo that the beer was not cold and brought out a bottle for Pablo to touch. Not sure why the beer wasn’t kept in the fridge... More

This is nothing like NY pizza. It tastes like cardboard with cheese and more cheese. Super greasy and took 45 mins to serve bc the oven had to warm up for 30 mins. Poor service no one to be found in restaurant. DONT GO!

This is our 2nd visit to Luigi's over a year apart. We were blown away by the luscious flavors in their Hawaiian Pizza, was just as great this year. Good service.

We stopped in for a late lunch before going to the La Fortuna waterfall. The kids wanted pizza, so we stopped. They serve NY style pizza, and the kids loved it. My husband and I also really enjoyed the sauce and cheese, but I had to deduct a point for the crust -- it was a bit chewier than we... More

We went here because it was one only a few places open late on a Sunday night. The waiters were not exactly friendly and seemed indifferent to providing good service. The pizza was just ok. If there had been other options we would have gone else were based on the service.

First night in town we ate Luigi's, and kept coming back for lunch and dinner. Pizza was great. Family-owned business they take pride in what they do. We had an opportunity to meet Luigi, very friendly he even helped us to book many of our excursions at a good price.

The food here was really great. It was fresh, hot, and exactly what we needed for an easy lunch. However, given how empty it was, we expected faster service.
