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.

We are here to see my wife's daughter who is at university here. We brought our dog Alfie and were delighted to find Luigis restaurant catered for dogs. We had a lovely meal and were treated extremely well as was Alfie.

My wife and i visited here back in 2015, so this is a historic review - However it is still valid due to our poor experience. We are regular visitors to Ambleside, and others who know the town will appreciate the wide choice of restaurants available. Sadly, this one pales by comparison to all the others we have tried.

Visited here on a Friday night and had a very friendly waitress show us to the table, both ordered mushrooms for starters which were very nice but that was the highlight. We ordered lasagne and a fish pasta for mains which were just ok and then ordered tiramisu for dessert which was very dry and bland, both agree was worst... More

We wandered around Ambleside before choosing this restaurant, and are glad that we did. A bit surprised that other reviewers moaned about there being no pizza - the menu outside clearly shows no pizza is on offer. Anyway, we hade the early bird £10.95 two course option and were very pleased with the food and the friendly and attentive waitresses.... More

We went here for my partner's birthday and I booked it purely on the strength of being able to take our dog with us! Upstairs in the non-dog area it was very quiet but downstairs all of the tables were full. The staff were nice and friendly but maybe not quite on top of their game; they didn't seem to... More

Where to begin, not only were greeted by an empty quiet room with dreary 'music', but seated one chair away from the ONLY other customers making it very awkward to talk openly. My partner reported the pasta to be cold, i was still upset that a placed named luigis does not sell pizza!! Which was the only reason we attended... More

We ate here one night whilst staying in ambleside between Christmas and new year and were so glad we did. It's a lovely small restaurant tucked away from the main high street but well worth scouting out. The main eating area is on the ground floor but they have a basement room for anyone who has a dog with them,... More

Read the reviews and booked a table for seven, 5 adults and 2 children. The atmosphere was relaxed and friendly. We had starters followed by pasta. Everything was delicious. The service was very good. The children had adult meals and sticky toffee pudding for desert. They were very impressed. Thank you Luigi'so for lovely dining experience.
