Luigi's is a small restaurant with amazingly friendly and helpful staff.
We went for breakfast - the sharing platter. This features various samples of their Italian-inspired dishes.
Food presentation: could not be better - absolutely appetizing.
Taste: some good (eg, French toast-style 'Florence', grilled tomato), but mostly on the disappointing side (eg, oven-roasted mushrooms).
Value for money: beware that the "sharing platter" price is per person - so $32 suddenly becomes $64 - and coffee etc is extra. Thus a (nice) breakfast suddenly sets you back AU$76+ ...
While Luigi's scores high on some points (friendly service, food presentation), in my mind it scores low on others (value for money, food taste, loud environment next to a busy road): in summary the experience is just below average only.

Luigi’s was bursting at the seams with catering for Christmas pageant goers this morning. That didn’t deter Luigi or the staff from engaging with every patron and ensuring they were enjoying the day as much as the staff. As there is no set menu I chose from a choice of 3 brunch options and was rewarded with poached eggs, bacon, potato rosti, wild mushrooms and truffle cream. And great coffee to boot! This recipe of attentive, engaging staff, passionate chefs/cooks, notoriously good coffee and fresh local food will always be a winner! Thanks for making my solo dining experience memorable.

I’m not much of a breakfast person, but hands down the best authentic tasting breakfast I’ve had in years. Perfect atmosphere, amazing staff and they have no menu so it makes it way more interesting and exciting. Trust the staff to bring you the best dish! Also coffee is 10/10!
