Luigi's is a family-style pizzeria and Italian restaurant that has been in the Valley for decades. I used to go there when I was in high school many, many years ago. When I moved back to Syracuse in the 1970s, I went to Luigi's but stopped going sometimes in the 80s after I moved to the suburbs. Then I heard... More

This place is so over-rated, makes you wonder who rates it. Marinara tastes like it's straight out of a can of tomato sauce, so seasoning, nothing. Pasta clearly not home-made (not that it's advertised as such) sausage bland and over-cooked. Salad was iceberg lettuce with a few halved cherry tomatoes and (comically) a little square of provolone. Lots of good... More

We ordered a pepperoni pizza and chicken parm to go. Portions will not disappoint. I opted for a meatball on the side and it didn't disappoint, best thing about the meal. Parm consisted of 2 pieces of chicken and a side of pasta which one person couldn't finish. The pizza is a square Sicilian style pizza, good flavor but a... More

Luigi's has the best sauce and meatballs!The closest thing to my mom's that I've found anywhere. Excellent sautéed greens too. Their generous portion size sends you home with plenty of food for another meal or two!

A friend of my hubbys referred this local eatery ... what a best town secret!! Okay, when you drive past you are like where do we park ... across from the restaurant, it's marked to park there. It looks uninviting from the store front and when you walk through the door, however walk past and be seated in the back.... More

the combination of chicken and eggplant really makes this dish, servings are very big and you'll have plenty for leftovers.

Went there recently to celebrate my birthday with some good friends. While this restaurant is small, the aroma when you walk in is huge. We met for an early dinner at around 4 p.m. Our waitress was spot on and answered several of or questions about the orders we wanted. I went with the manicotti with meatballs, two others ordered...

My husband and his family have gone to this restaurant for over 40 years. I just moved to Syracuse 5 years ago, and this is absolutely my favorite place to eat! The food is incredible and the portions are huge!! My husband's favorite is the fried haddock dinner, and I think my favorite is the Portobello Parmesan. You really can't... More

The decor hasn't been updated in many years, but the food is awesome! They give HUGE portions, so be careful not to over order. Almost every dish we got could have been split by two and still had left overs. If you're looking for a really good Italian place with great prices, this is your spot.
