    Wonderful atmosphere, great service. The wait staff was happy and friendly. Food was so good. Nice menu, not to big but everything was great. The pear Gorgonzola ravioli is to die for. Really fun and I will definitely go back.

    We had been thinking about trying this place for awhile and had the opportunity this week. I would not set the expectation that this is a place to visit for a “romanic date night” experience. Overlaying what was once a Mexican restaurant with tablecloths and candles doesn’t in itself create that kind of ambiance. The music was a little too loud and on a short loop with some kind of Italian whistle being the dominant element. All that being said, both the food and the service were very good! We had a couple of house salads—I liked the tangy vinaigrette and the lettuce was tasty and fresh. The marinara served with my ravioli was delicious. Some tweaks with the decor and overall ambience would improve the experience, but it’s a place that we’ll visit again!

    One waiter on a Monday early evening was very good considering he had about 6-8 tables to attend. Food is good, not great, decent value for a neighborhood restaurant.

    A dear friend is leaving the area and I treated her to dinner. Our reservation was for 6:15 pm. We stood waiting for over 30 minutes before being seated. Like so many restaurants, there simply are not enough staff to handle guests in the front coming in and guests seated waiting for meals. Only 2 servers were handling the front house, phone, and guests coming in. Simply not enough staff.

    What a busy place and great for a girls night out or dinner with friends. Perhaps, not enough help for larger groups. But that is the times we are in. The food was marginally better than good. Yet, plenty of it. So we didn’t leave hungry. The noodles were perfectly cooked. Bread was buttery and we got plenty of it. If you are up for wine price bingo. This is also your place. Extensive wines on the shelves and wall. But no list or price to be found. Our table figured out the prices were just double retail. We had great bottles once we figured out how we were being charged. It’s a real neighborhood find!

    My wife and I ordered the Chicken Marsala. The food and marsala sauce were great! There was a little confusion with the bill. They under charged our friends, which they asked them to correct. We didn't want to under pay them.

    Our first visit to Luigi's Italian Cucina and won't be our last. The atmosphere was warm and welcoming. My wife had the Cioppino, one of her favorites, and loved it. I had one of my favorite dishes, the Veal Scaloppini, Marsala. The sauce was fantastic. We thought their wine choices were acceptable. We'll be back.

    The food is excellent, and their wines are good and reasonable. The service is somewhat slow because of the small staff. I think they're having the same staffing problems that many restaurants are having. Their veal dishes are wonderful as is their spinach ravioli. The corkage fee of $25 is a little high for this area - it's not downtown Bellevue. I was glad to see that they were nearly full as we need a good Italian restaurant in the area.

    Celebrated our anniversary at Luigi’s and had a wonderful meal and experience. My wife ordered the Risotto di Mare and I had the lasagna. We had a bottle of Chianti and throughly enjoyed our meal. Emilio, our server, was the only server that Monday night and he did a great job of handling the many customers in the restaurant. We were in no hurry. The food is always fresh and tasty and the ambience is quiet and relaxing. We will be back.

    What a lovely (and much needed) addition to the neighborhood. The calamari was so light and crispy— maybe the best I’ve ever had. The pear and Gorgonzola ravioli was delicious and the sauce was not heavy at all. We had an excellent bottle of wine. Our waiter was knowledgeable and attentive. Can’t wait to go back! Buon appetito!

    Wanted to try this new place - some conflicting prior reviews. There was no blaring music as one reviewer stated. Subdued Italian music in the background, cute interior. Short on staff (but many places are) so just be patient. The 2 staff members were very pleasant and helpful and took time with each customer. That would be the only downgrade - but Im sure they are trying to get more staff. The food was exceptional. I was very pleased - fresh warm bread, good wine, and nicely portioned plates. I will definitely be back.

    We came specifically for a celebration for my daughter who is gluten free. After being told you only had one GF pasta option (and that it would be an add’l $6) it wasn’t until the remainder of our party received their food that she was told you were out of GF pasta and that you could substitute add’l veggies. We paid $18 for eggplant and broccoli! Additionally, although our waiter was y nice he was not very efficient. He was forgetful and spent more time prepping tables than providing service to us.

    The food was good but we waited an hour and a half for it to arrive. Then a half hour more just for one dessert. It was supposed to be chocolate mousse, but seems they forgot the sugar and it tasted quite sour, inedible.

    We made the reservation for our 52nd anniversary dinner and were very excited as we love the restaurant. To our great disappointment, when we showed up on time, the the restaurant was closed and dark. There was no explanation whatsoever in advance of our arrival and after a few confirmations of the reservation leading up to that evening.

    We waited almost 40 minutes after the reserved time to be seated for our reservation (which we arrived almost ten minutes in advance of), with walk-in tables being seated ahead of us. What's the point of taking reservations if you don't honor them? The restaurant was busy, but reservations should have helped them decide how many staff to schedule and what time to tell walk-ins rather than just putting us in the line with everyone else. Very frustrating, between that and the total cost we're unlikely to be back. I can say that if you can walk in then go grab a drink elsewhere and come back, and don't mind overpriced wine, the food was incredibly good. Had we been seated on time this would have been a review focusing on that and mentioning that it was busy and service was a little slow. Had they even offered to comp an appetizer as apology for the wait, this review would have focused on that.

    Our first time here, we really enjoyed it. They are clearly short staffed, the waiter seemed to be serving the entire restaurant and when the phone rang, it just rang and rang with no one to answer it. Having said that, it's a lovely place and the food is very good. My elderly mother likes almost nothing and she ate the entire large serving of gnocchi bolognese. I consider that pretty high praise.

    When we walked in they were playing Rap / hip-hop music not the ideal Ambiance for an Italian restaurant. The menu is quite limited and not very flavorful. The wine list is non-existent, you had to go up pick a bottle off the wall and then ask the price. I don't think we'll be back.

    I'd been wanting to try Luigi's ever since it switched to having Italian cuisine. We live in California part time, and I came back to Redmond for the weekend, so decided it was a good time to try it out. I was not disappointed. The menu has a great variety of dishes, so it was hard to decide what to have. I went with the pear and gorgonzola ravioli, and it was delicious. The ambiance is pleasant, and the service was excellent. I'm looking forward to coming back to Redmond in May and you can be sure I will be going to Luigi's again.

    We are fortunate to have a restaurant with good food and ambience in our Redmond Ridge neighborhood. Two of our party had the caprice salad and the veal Marsala, and both were very pleased. The other two had the mussels, the wild mushroom ravioli and the spaghetti carbonara, both rich and delicious. We dined on a Thursday evening, with no crowd, the restaurant barely a third full, so this was quite pleasant for us, nice and quiet. I understand they are very busy on weekends, however. The service was attentive, although our server still a bit new, but no complaints. One small thing, we were charged for the bread, which we don’t recall happening in the past. It was totally worth it as the bread is delicious, but it should be noted on the menu. Great job, Luigi’s!

    If you're looking for something new and nice on the Ridge, give Luigi's a try. They are very busy, so get reservations to avoid a wait. The venue is fairly small, and they fill up every time we've been there.

    Eggplant parmigiana was excellent but the spaghetti and vegetables were cold. I did not send back but will specify when I order again. Also open table has the menu for a Mexican restaurant not the current Italian one and the spelling for “Cucina” should be “Cucina.” Open table needs to adjust this.

    The menu in Open Table is wrong, only Italian food. The food was amazing, but seemed over priced. Worst raspberry lemon drop I've ever had. Would have loved to had bread while we waited for our food, not having to request it ourselves and nor showing up until the end if the meal. But, like said already, the food was AMAZING!
