Luigi's opened in the summer of 2009 and has a great offering of home-style pastas and seafood. We arrived one evening trying to decide between this restaurant and Rouen Thai next door. The shared parking lots were packed, but Rouen Thai was empty; all of the customers were here at Luigi's. We were warmly greeted and escorted to our table in the corner farthest from the door.

Our meals started with house bread and oil, and we had a few Peroni beers. For our meals we had two linguine pescatore entrees and one tilapia livornese. The linguine was $16 each, and included shrimp, mussels, and scallops in their spicy marinara sauce. The tilapia was $15 and consisted of a tasty, lightly breaded filet of fish, served with olives, basil capers, and other herbs in a wine marinara sauce with a choice of pastas. The tilapia was similar to a chicken Parmesan.

Our total bill was $60 for three people, not bad for a nice meal with very good service.
