SquareMeal Review of Luigi's

Having occupied this corner site for close to 30 years, Luigi’s is not about to change its ways. The traditional menu of this welcoming Italian restaurant encompasses pastas, fish & meat dishes, sticking to time-honoured classics such as linguini with clams, veal escalope ‘alla milanese’ & grilled Dover sole. Friendly host Gennaro is on hand to guide your selections, & is happy to accommodate requests for smaller portions, or tweaks to certain dishes. A good-value two-course set menu (lunch Monday to Saturday, dinner Monday to Thursday) offers slight variations on the à la carte favourites. The decor appears to have changed little in three decades, with bentwood chairs, colourful floor tiles & modern Italian art bringing a simple yet stylish feel to this neighbourhood eatery.

21 October 2010

I visited this wonderful restaurant at the beginning of october 2010 on a recommendation from a friend.the food was amazing(lobster linguini) and the owner ‘Gennaro‘ was the most cordial of hosts,nothing was too much trouble for my waitress and the music was soothing and not too loud.I also had the best Tiramisu i have ever tasted.It was a quiet night but i cannot understand why they are ever so as i really cannot fault a thing .I urge you all to visit this lovely little piece of Italy in south london.I will be booking my office party with them and am really looking forward it .
