Recommended for a relaxed Italian style evening. Reasonably priced with very welcoming staff. Small so advisable to book and last service 9pm.

Four of us had different dishes and all were delicous. Great value food. Chips and roast potatoes were delicous accompaniment. Service is really friendly. The decor very dated and when the back door was open as hot in kitchen you got a very cold draught. They did close it when asked but this happened twice. So you might want to... More

One of the best things about the Lake District is how dog friendly it is, along with the beautiful scenery and welcoming people. We decided to book Luigi's for my 40th birthday dinner. The downstairs section is for guests with dogs. Its a lovely room, with dog beds, a plate of biscuits on the table and their own water bowl.... More

There is plenty of choice in Ambleside with many offering Italian food so "Luigi's" should really be offering something to stand out from the crowd. The decor could be more Italian, and whilst the food was ok it didn't make me want to go back. There could have been at least one fresh pasta fish for example and soup of... More

Very dog-friendly restaurant. Ground floor is dog-free. Downstairs area kitted out with dog mattresses, water bowls and free dog biscuits. Staff very friendly towards the dogs ---- and humans too! Good service and excellent food. Good value.

Hence why we booked in again for our last night here. The staff are lovely and so very friendly, the pasta is delicious and I'd definitely recommend... More

Lovely meal, extremely welcoming staff and ideal for dogs with dog beds and treats in the downstairs area. Though only one waitress, she was very attentive and made a big effort to ensure we had all we need.

Although there was only one waitress on duty this evening we had good service, excellent food and would eat here again if we were staying longer. Arrived early for the Early Bird, which is starter, main and a drink from drinks menu for about £10.95. Recommend the sharing platter, more than enough for 2, varied meats and olives. The main...

What a lovely place, dog beds at each table downstairs with a plate of dog treats too. Fantastic food, gluten free no problem either. Lovely staff, highly recommended.
