Great hot sandwiches and the mac'n cheese was delicious! Plenty of options deli-style for a casual lunch, and I believe they also have a restaurant dining room. Service was fast and friendly.

Luigi's Gourmet Express & Restaurant has been a Johnston, RI institution since 1971. We offer delicious Italian cuisine from our treasured family recipes passed down through generations. All of our breads and desserts are baked on premise. House specialties include the Veal & Chicken Parmigiana as well as many beef, pork, seafood and, of course, pasta entrees. We recently added Brick Oven Pizza and Gourmet Burgers to our menu. There is truly something that anyone can enjoy on our menu! We have a great wine list as well as many craft beers on draft. Our Gourmet Express offers a great variety of prepared foods, soups, salads, sandwiches, pizza and much more for café dining or take out. Our catering and banquet division can handle any of your entertaining needs either on premise or at an off site location. The Battista Family thanks you for showing an interest in Luigi's and invites you to "Come to Luigi's, where our family will treat your family like... family!"
