We always have fun here. Food is yummy!! Service is good. I've never had anything here that I haven't liked! It's always crowded, so get there early like when they open. Not sure of their hours.

This deli is not to be missed. If you're hungry or looking for picnic food, this is a great spot to check out. We had to feed 20 people for a backyard pool party and Luigis was the perfect solution. Delicious salad and sandwiches, plus...More
