Yelp Review:  Cream sauce. If that makes your mouth water this is the place for you. I love their Luigi's Special. Chicken with a cream sauce with a little marinara added. Wow. The bread makes me think of Mom's bread and the Luigi salad and house dressing was awesome. HUGE amount of cheese and the dressing. And then the Spumoni ice cream. Different and full of flavor.....Service is always good and quick. Got a chicken Alfredo pizza for our son. He hates it when we eat out and don't include him at least in the left overs. He loved it. Sigh, should have gotten a bigger pizza.

Yelp Review:  Hands down Luigi's will provide you with the best dining experience in Commerce, Texas. The food is good and service always friendly. It is possibly the best italian food you will find in the Northeast Texas region.

In terms of the quality of the food provided I will rate it fair. Some dishes, particular the chicken Alfredo, appeared watered down. I am used to my sauce being on the think side. This is a matter of preference so I will not discredit them within this regard.

The garlic bread is awesome! The only downside I have found is that the restaurant is a bit on the chilly side. On all occasions that I have been there, it has been extremely cold. It would help if patrons hand a comfortable temperature in order to have a more rewarding experience.

Beyond its minor flaws, I recommend Luigi's.

Yelp Review:  While visiting my folks in Commerce, they suggested Luigi's.  Having grown up in Commerce, I didn't expect much.  I honestly was blown away by this place!  First, the building is like any nice established restaurant you would find in Dallas.  Second, the staff is very professional and, again, what you would expect in a large city.  The food was excellent!  I had the angel hair pasta and it was very good!  This is going to be my first stop for a meal when visiting my family again in Commerce.  It's great to have such a nice place in Commerce to dine!

Yelp Review:  Fairly new to Commerce, a boring college town, Luigi's is hands down the best Italian restaurant in Northeast Texas.

The pizza is huge & only $12 for a large. I've tried half the menu thus far & everything, and I mean everything, tastes like Jesus made it. Damn good food.

Best part? Luigi's staff is exceptional. Best customer service I've seen in a long time. I will forever be a loyal Luigi's fan.

I'd give 'em 10 stars if I could!

Review: I have worked in the Restaurant for many years and this place to be in a small town is great. The Pasta was excellent and very plentiful for the price. Garlic bread and salad very fresh. The manager a great person along with a service staff that made my meal a great experience. I have nothing but excellent for the two times that I have experienced eating at Luigi's in Quinlin Texas. A small town Restaurant that deserves 5 STARS for what they are doing to make Quinlin a place to be able to experience Fine Dining as we say in this business. I live on Lake Ray Hubbard close to the Rockwall and Royce City location but have only tried the Quinlin location. If you for any reason dine in this location remember " considering the time and $ amount it takes to prepare an Italian meal like you receive at Luigi's I think they have it the way we all like it" especilly when your wallet doesn't hurt and the mess is left for someone elese to clean up! 5 STARS! 5stars

I have found other recipes including Olive Garden's and Macaroni Grill, but they still have nothing on your\'s that I had in Rockwall TX...

Review: COME HUNGRY!!!!! GREAT food and AMAZING service!!! Everything we ordered was served to our table fast and hot and our glasses never stayed empty! I ordered the Shrimp Alvino (Jumbo shrimp sauteed with butter, garlic, lemon, white wine, and a touch of marinara over linguine pasta)... delicious!! Between the warm, freshly baked Italian bread with marinara on the side (we asked for the marinara), salad with house dressing (their house dressing is fantastic as well), I BARELY finished my dinner! My husband had the Philly cheese steak and I tried a bite... YUMM!!!!!!! We ordered the kids a large cheese pizza and added pepperoni. It was hot and FRESH and cooked to perfection! We walked out of there tonight asking ourselves \"Why haven\'t we tried this place sooner?!\" To feed my family of 6 that good, leave with a to-go box of pizza, and I had 2 glasses of wine for under $50, incredible! I know where we will be going for our Italian cravings from now on!

Review: Luigi's is by far the best dining experience I've had for the price! Usually I get the lobster ravioli, which is absolutely divine! I, nor my friends, have ever had a single dish that was of poor quality. The food, service, atmosphere, and value are all wonderful. I go there as often as I can and shall continue to do so whilst I'm still living in Texas.

Food: HUGE portions! We had leftovers for 2 days! Love it. The house salad was yummy as was the garlicky bread you get when you order your drinks. The husband's lasagna was by far the best thing was ordered. I kept stealing bites. I ordered the Tortellini Alla Panna, which was good. I suggest ordering the Alla Panna sauce to dip the garlic bread in. I can't remember what we ordered for the toddler - maybe ziti?? - but I remember it was pretty good and there was a lot of it! The only pitfall was that I felt the food was overly salty just a tad. Not enough that I couldn't eat it, but it definitely could have been less.

Service: Professional and polite. No complaints.

Atmosphere: Kind of like all the other family-owned Italian restaurants. Trying for Tuscan. Clean. Dim. Warm colors.

Value: Great b/c of all the leftovers.

Review: We go to Luigis because we truly do enjoy dinning there. Their food is delicious. I usually have their "Stuffed Trout with Linguini and Vegetables" which is Superb! It's not on the menu, it's a special that they sometimes have, so you have to ask for it. Or, I'll have their "Lobster Ravioli" You cannot go wrong with their Lobster Ravioli, it truly is the Best! I mean for the price, it's a good deal ---And I don't know about you guys, but I always judge a restaurant by their bread (or if it's a mexican restaurant, I judge them by their salsa) ---At Luigi's, the bread that they bring out to you, is so good! But, you really have to be careful, though. Because, you can get full on their bread :) I'm serious...Anyways i do recomend this restaurant. It's good and their prices are reasonable.

Best Italian in Rockwall or for a 10 mile radius.

You're thinking, well what about Olive Garden or Johnny Carino's or the new hip place Zanata's ?

Well, Zanata's is great, don't get me wrong, but it's expensive and open only late hours.

If you want to have lots of tasty Italian food, fresh bread, cozy private seats, comfortable atmosphere, good service, pepsi; then go here.I recommend the: Penne Pomodoro or the Lasagna.

Review: Been to Luigi's a couple times since moving to Rockwall. I didn't know there were this many Italians in the area - I think they all work at Luigi's! Definitely adds to the sense the food is authentic and the place is family run.

The cannelloni & manicotti are both excellent - with a slight nod to the manicotti. Luigi's special - a mix of chicken, sausage & ham over spaghetti in a cream sauce with a hint of marinara is excellent (if you can get past the fact that it looks like they dumped a can of Campbell's tomato soup on it - they didn't!).

The pizza is also quite good - cheesy with a nice crust - but not top pick unless you're just really in the mood for pizza rather than pasta, etc.

The bread is good - fresh and tasty - but not in the same league with the bread at Sicilliano's in Garland (which gets 5 stars always - 6 if I could give it!). Service is excellent. Someone always nearby to refill a drink or bring more bread.

Definitely a keeper.

Review: I lived close enough to either of the locations , to be able to go anytime. I took it for granted. I have now moved to Pennsylvania and there is nothing like it here. I have had just about everything on the menue , but will have to say that the lobster Ravioli is my all time favourite . I can find nothing like it . Everyone else has tooooo much garlic , isn't as rich and creamy and I leave dissapointed everytime. If you have a chance to eat here , do so . They treat you with the utmost care and do there best to give you an incredible dining experience.

I am a long-time Luigi's customer & we eat there about once/week. Best Italian food I've had in Dallas & we're totally addicted to the jalapeno & pepperoni pizza there!! Blows chain pizza places away. Eggplant Parmesan is my favorite Italian dish there--the best I have ever had. I used to practically drink the sauce on the lobster ravioli--so amazing but either my tastebuds have changed or they changed the sauce a little after the remodel a few years back & now it's almost too salty. Still great, though, as is linguini & clams--simply yum & I get about 4 meals out of it. Love this place!


Luigi's Review by  Lauren C.


We LOVE this place! The food is ALWAYS delicious and the price is very affordable. I can always count on a great meal here and it is very family friendly. The bread is simply to die for. When my family comes in from out of town they ALL ask to go to Luigis. I just can't say enough about how super this place is.

Luigi's Review by  Maddie K.


Fantastic Italian Cafe in the small town of Rockwall! It's not good for having a conversation with someone but everything has been outstanding thus far! The bread is fantastic, but a dieter's nightmare! My favorite entree would have to be the Gnocchi with Vodka Sauce. Everything is fresh and delicious. Great for kids, not great for a date!


Luigi's Review by  Lori T


We visited Luigi's tonight for the first time. My boyfriend chose Luigi's based on the reviews, and I must say the reviews were spot on. We decided on a bottle of DeVinci Chianti with the input of the waiter, it turned out to be a really good choice. We had Bob's dip for our oh-so-fresh bread (thank you "eathere") and it was incredible. The house dressing on our salads was really great, and the lettuce was fresh and crisp. I had the Luigi's special, which was a chicken breast, sausage, ham, and roasted peppers in a white wine sauce with a hint of marinara over spaghetti. One of the best Italian dishes to ever grace my plate. My boyfriend had the lobster raviolli. Big plump raviolli with wonderful chunks of lobster tail and peppers in a creamy sauce. The service from our very friendly waiter was excellent, and the prices were very reasonable...

Great Italian time you are there try Bob's dip... 5 stars


Luigi's Review by  Kendall K.


I LOVE this restaurant, people! Their bread is so good, number one. I am a garlic freak, which apparently works for this place, because they are not shy with it. But hey, that is a thumbs up for me. We ordered the "Bob's Dip" appetizer, which is this bowl of dip for your bread. It's kind of like an Italian version of pico de gallo except it's in oil, and loaded with- you guessed it- garlic. YUM! We took the rest of it home for a late night snack because they give you a lot of it.

I ordered the homemade cheese ravioli, which was super. It was just out of the oven with yummy baked cheese on top. My fiance got what I think was called the Luigi's Special, but I can't remember for sure. It was sort of a hodge podge of stuff on some pasta with this killer tomato creme sauce. Super rich, but I tasted it and it was good too. They had a wine special when we went last and we got a bottle of wine for around 10-15 bucks.

I am new to the Rockwall area, but apparently this place has been around for the long haul and everyone I have talked to seems to love it too. They have a lot of loyal customers. I eavesdropped on the waitress talking to a family next to our table about how they were back to eat there for the second time in one day...? I don't know if I would go that far, but it is really good.

Great food, Good service, clean and open building..

Love the Cheesecake first and foremost lol

I moved to my new house down the street ..

so tried luigis a few times.. Love the chicken parm.. and tried the chicken alfredo..which was rich and creamy..

Only thing i didnt like so far was the chicken picata.. me.not my style..wasnt what I was expecting..

My friend Lamont tried the eggplant parm...not sure what he thought about it..he had a bad pre meal i think so might have ruined it for him.. he didnt love it.. but he said it wasnt bad..

Luigi's Review by  Chris


Went twice in the last 2 weeks. Excellent, attentive service both times. First visit, food was well presented and very appetizing. It was also served very quickly. Second visit, food was plentiful, but quality not too good. Wife had sampler pasta dish and only Canelloni was tasty. Too much cheese overall. I had Spagettini, the Works - too much sauce and not enough pasta. Sweet rather than spicy. Left half on plate. To top it all, the server told us to pay at the front. We found a queue of 12 people, all using credit cards (Friday evening 9:00pm). We dumped our $40 on the desk and left. Good - the house bottled Malbec at $13.99 was exceptional value and passable wine. Would we go back? - yes. But manage your dinner experience.

This is our local "go to" Italian restaurant and we've always had a good meal.  The staff are courteous and service has always been good.  The food is very good.  Not real fancy, but a step up from average Italian restaurants.  Good prices make this an excellent value.

Crowded on weekends, but worth a little wait.

I held a surprise birthday party here and it was great. The food and service were excellent. The food is priced well and the portion sizes were good.


Luigi's Review by Tom C.

Richardson, TX


Had a great dining experience here for my first visit.

My dinner companion is a regular so I gladly deferred and let him do the ordering for us. We started by sharing the fried calamari and the crabcakes.  The calamari was excellent; perfectly cooked with a very light breading.  The crabcakes were also delicious, made additionally rich and decadent as they were smothered in a very tasty cream sauce.

As a main meal, we shared the Sicilian deep dish pizza with the works. It was huge (16 x 16), covered with a generous load of topping. 2 pieces each were more with we could comfortably finish.

Despite my discomfort, my companion insisted we share a piece of their NY cheesecake. It was also fabulous; my test of a great cheesecake is that it needs no topping, and this sure filled the bill.

Service was exceptionally pleasant and attentive and prices reasonable for the quality and portion sizes. I look forward to a return visit.

I have been going to Luigi's for many years now, and not once have I ever left feeling anything other than completely full and satisfied. It is simply the best Italian food I have ever eaten, and I make sure Val is my waiter every time I eat there. Three must haves are the Chicken Parmigiana, Chicken Carchovie, and the Canelloni. SUPERB!

Luigi's is awesome. The owner(s) are all brothers, I believe, and seem to be a tight nit bunch. The food and service are great. My wife gets the lobster ravioli and I tend to do the gnocchi - both are excellent.


Luigi's Review by  Sly Fox


Decent Italian Food.....

I have been going to Luigis for about 5 years now. As a Rockwall resident from Brooklyn, NY..... I know Italian food.

The tomato sauce is very good and the portions on most dishes are generous. The wait staff are all friendly and you will see the owner working along side them most of the time.

The pizza is the closest thing you are going to find to "NY Style Pizza" East of Ray Hubbard.

The atmosphere is very relaxed, and always packed with locals.

Not bad for a bunch of guys who are not even Italian!

Luigi's Review by  a Yahoo! Local User


I must say I was very displeased Friday May 9th. I ordered a to go order and got back and the food was so salty I couldn't finish it.

The Bread was a bit hard but that wasn't the main issue.

The Salad was OK with the house dressing.

I have gone here for a couple of years and the food has always been great!

Maybe they had an off night, but my $25 hard earned money went down the drain.

I had the Manicotti with alfredo sauce in case you're wondering.

Will I go back? Yes, I probably will because I still think it blows Olive Garden out of the water. I'm just going to wait awhile.



Luigi's Review by niffny


I miss this place like crazy! It is the best Italian food I have ever put in my mouth. The bread and garlic/oil dipping sauce is amazing! I love the Chicken Albanese. The food is so rich and authentic, even though the staff is Albanian! Excellent prices. Absolutely one of my most missed memories of Rockwall!

Best pizza in Rockwall, hands down. Possibly even the best in the greater Dallas Metroplex. The rest of the food is also delicious with many of the recipes staying true to their Italian heritage.

This is my favorite place to eat. My Family and i have been going here for a long time and i have never had a bad experience. I love the staff and how well they take care of me when i come in to visit. Mario is also the best. Always takes care of his restraunt and knows whats best for his customers.


Review by Zingy


visited there twice in three days! i've only had their soup with chicken, and it's the freshest i've ever had. every bite has a different flavor because there's so many veggies in it. my guy said it looked more like a stew. he had the spaghetti the second time i've gone, and he rated it highly (leftovers good for my late-night snack). they serve fresh steaming hot cresent-type rolls before the meals, and they're perfect - don't need any dipping at all. huge selection of wines, and they have beers, too. wait staff is amazing; very handsome men. decor is great, and the background music is perfect. they don't seat everyone in the same section, they spread you out all over the large restaurant. the frst time i went i was alone, and they treated me regally.

My first time at Luigis was last week, Jan,2008 and we were very pleased with the food, service and prices ! They earned the 5 stars i,m glady giving them.

allapanna sauce: If you go, spend the extra money and get the "Alla panna" sauce for dipping it is wonderful. Prices are reasonable and the service is always good.

family friendly: The wait-staff takes screaming babies and whiny tots in stride, and the food is fresh, delicious and the bread is to die for.

Great after church location,they just add tables for larger groups.

And they pay attention to the solitary diner.

its the full package: I compare every italian restaurant I go to with Luigis, and it can't be beat. It's hard to keep from falling in love with the great food, prises, and friendly Italian like service. The remodeled place in Rockwall is gorgeous...perfect for any occasion.

Gotta love Luigi's: So I went to Italy to compare the service, and it's about the same. Luigi's has the same atmostphere and amazing service. You have to ask them to sing Happy Birthday if you really want to go the mile!
