I always look forward to a date here with my wife of over 40 years. I could make a meal on their brochetta and crusty bread. I always manage to order a Serloin "Cowboy Steak" over half of which I bring home for Steak and Eggs for breakfast on another day. Table service is good and I think the bar... More

We went here for post funeral meal. There weren't enough tables set up, the bathroom was small, dated and dirty. The salad looked like it was bagged ice burg lettuce and had 1 cherry tomato and 1 cucumber. We had a family style meal. The pasta, sausage, green beans, and roast beef were decent. Bread was served warm. The staff... More

Nice neighborhood restaurant. Been here many times before. Food quality is consistent, always very good. Service though could be much better. The last 2 times I was there, it took the servers quite a while to come to the table. When they do come, they come with a jar of bruschetta along with parmesan cheese. No bread. Both times I...

Our first time here but we'll go back when traveling out of Midway again. Yes, it has old decor, I consider it charming. Many of the customers were known by name, obvious regulars. Food is old style Italian, very tasty. Service was prompt. I don't think this place deserves the bad reviews, if you are expecting Olive Garden type food... More

Had dinner with friends at Mama Luigi's, the service was wonderful, bread with oil, pesto and cheese was delicious and warm. We all ordered the special "Mixed Grill", it was very tasty and delicious. This was chicken, sausage, filets and potatoes, such good flavors! We had a choice of soup or salad. My salad was very fresh, with olives, and... More

Seriously, YUM! The whole meal was wonderful! We were celebrating a family birthday and visited this restaurant with a group. Everything was perfect. The menu had everything, great appetizer, entrée and beverage selections. The portions were huge and everyone left full.

From the moment you sit down, it is all about making sure you have plenty of great food to satisify your hunger.
