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

We ate at Luigis for the first time this weekend. Appetizers were tasty and dinners were large. I had a cavatelli dish that was good and my wife had veal. Daughter loves the vodka sauce over penne. The marinara sauce had a strong metallic taste and I didn't care for it. The menu is extensive with almost too many choices.... More

More often then not you need something quick for dinner. Luigi's deli has just about everything to put a hot meal together in minutes. They have just about anything you may want from soup to deserts. Recommend to stop by the next time you just do not have time for cooking.

Description
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!"
