Luigi is an unassuming Italian restaurant in a town with Rhode Island's largest Italian population. The food is good, the ambiance a bit dated, and the service terrific. Nice place to celebrate a birthday or anniversary.

My husband and I just LOVE Luigis! It is by far the BEST Italian resteraunt out of the city.

Whenever I am craving something sweet, this is the place to go. The Limoncello cake, Strawberry Cheesecake, and Turtle Cheesecake are absolutely divine!!!

I want to start off saying I've been here many times and love the food. This visit was to the deli side of the restaurant and there was only a couple of customers in the place. There were multiple employees behind the counter and no one even acknowledged we were there for ten minutes. I finally interrupted a conversion between... More

Take home or dine in, you decide. Amazing Italian dishes that you can bring home to the family or just take a seat and order in. Great pastries as well.

This family owned restaurant serves first class traditional Italian cuisine. You can't help but overeat, the food is soooooo good. The wait staff is attentive and very pleasant and the owners/managers bent over backwards to make sure we had everything we needed for a large group luncheon. They are the best!!!

Arrived at 6:45 on Saturday night. We were told there was a 20 minute wait. OK - so we waited at the bar. $18 for 2 drinks. At 7:15, my husband went to check on our table. "Just cleaning it off". We walked out at 7:35 - no table, no dinner, poor service - won't go back. While we were... More

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!"
