Italian with a difference
July 09, 2014

I had the pleasure of dining with family at Luisa recently. While being married to an Italian who is a fantastic cook, I sometimes am very critical of Italian restaurants because they usually don't compare to what I get at home.
Luisa is refreshingly different in offering not only the "standard" fare in Italian cuisine but also quite a few... more

You have to book for this restaurant as it's quite small and very popular and after having eaten there I can understand why. The menu is not large but the food is so delicious and the staff were so friendly and so Italian, what more could you ask for.

A little bit of Italy - Delightful
June 05, 2014

Probably the best lasagna that I have ever had the privilege to enjoy; service was excellent. Arrived around 5:00 on a Thursday evening and the restaurant rapidly filled up. Waitress was very pleasant and even came from Italy (Venice) and the meal arrived quickly. They appeared to be a bit short staffed, but the owner made a point of assisting... more

Hidden Gem in St. Albert
May 27, 2014

Rocco and Rosa continue to offer a wonderful Italian experience in a crowded Italian market in St. Albert. Gluten free options as well as veg as an option to pasta. Do not miss the Caeser salad, simply the best in the universe.

We have been to Luisa's many times and overall have never been disappointed. It is a great place for a casual evening and before the Theatre. I love the pasta and Rosa's special sauce and her Limoncello tiramisu. It is wonderful!

Authentic Italian Cuisine
April 14, 2014

You will need a reservation. Very small, but personable service. Excellent food. Rosa is always smiling and will come to your table if she knows it is your first time eating a Luisa's.

Good Italian meal
March 28, 2014

Light and delicious bruscheta - made fresh! This alone is worth the drive to St. Albert! Pescatore is yummy too. Saved room for their tiramisu as what is a good dinner without dessert and nightcap. The tiramisu was ok but their specialty coffee is something one should try -add a shot of Baileys to kick it up a notch.

March 07, 2014

We hadn't been to Luisa's for awhile so we were excited for a nice meal with homemade Italian food The service was terrible. The room is boxy and not very nice, you wouldn't eat there for the ambiance. Our server had a difficult time with the english language and therefore communication was an issue.

Great food and atmosphere
March 04, 2014

We have always had a great experience at Luisa's. Whether ordering from the menu or having the owners suggest a dish for us. The food is cooked with passion and it shows. The serving staff honestly enjoy their job and do it well. Very hard to find good service now a days. Great food great service you cannot go wrong.

Great Atmosphere and Food
March 03, 2014

When you want to feel special visit Rocco and Rosa! They make you feel part of the family. They have chefs that are actually from Italy! Their specials are definitely the way to go but don't forget to have Rosa's deserts. Don't miss the Prawn appetizer or the bruschetta.

Mediocre Food at a High Price
February 09, 2014

My wife and I ate at Luisa's last Friday. We started with the bruschetta and it was very good.
My wife had the veal parmigana and I had the special which was a lamb shank. My wife enjoyed her meal but mine was not very good. The lamb was not well seasoned, quite bland. I like my lamb with mint... more

Popular spot for a reason
September 19, 2013

Luisa's is a friendly little Italian eatery smack dab in the middle of tiny downtown St. Albert. For a long time, it didn't have any competion in the area, but although this has changed in the last several months, it is still my first choice when I'm in the mood for an Italian meal and don't want to cook it... more

Fantastico
September 14, 2013

We recently travelled from Vancouver Island, BC to St. Albert. Our first evening there we called Luisa's restaurant, hoping for a reservation. We were told they were very sorry but were booked up! My husband sadly expressed his disappointment and was then told that if we could wait for an hour and a half, and would take a "high table"... more

Hidden Italian gem in St. Albert
July 22, 2013

Truly a surprise. We never expected such a quality. We followed a recommendation and it was true: the best Italian pasta in Edmonton-St. Albert area. Without any doubt one of the best in Canada (we have been around in many big cities, with 'Little Italies" and I do not remember something so tasty and so good). Delicious sauces and pasta... more

Horrible service, great food
January 08, 2013

If you like being given the run around and rude owners/staff, this is the pace to be. Luisa's is run by pretentious, deceptive people who rae their customers and success for granted. Yes, the food is wonderful, but the overall experience will eave you with a bad taste in your mouth.

Delicious, authentic Italian cuisine at local St. Albert eatery
December 10, 2012

Authentically prepared and reliably delicious Italian food with friendly owners and servers.
Highlights include bruschetta, linguine picante, lasagne and tiramisu...but everything is excellent.
Usually two sittings and reservations are a good idea.

Saturday evening, party of 8 for a birthday dinner. Waitress took forever to take our order and then bring our food. We got our entrees at 7:05. At 7:30 owner asks us to leave before we finish the entree so she could seat next party. No offer of dessert/coffee or anything else as they simply wanted us to leave right... more

Luisa's food is lovely
July 25, 2012

My husband and I went to Luisa's for dinner after reading the excellent reviews on Yelp and Trip Advisor. The atmosphere is casual--it is not fancy, so if you are after a more 'posh' experience, you might want to try the River Street Grill. The wine list is quite lean and unimaginative and there are only two options for dessert,... more

Luisa's has always been and will continue to be my favorite place to eat in St. Albert.

It is no wonder that the wait for service is sometimes an issue as people around... more

Luisa's Ristorante is a quaint little restaurant in the heart of St. Albert, Alberta. They have some great starters. Their brushetta and sambucca shrimps are my favorites. They have a wide variety of homemade fresh pastas. This night most of us had the seafood lasagna. it was very good. They don't have a very large wine selection, but what they... more

Great little mom and pop restaurant in downtown St. Albert. The pastas are made fresh daily. We always enjoy this for our "date night". It's not a very big place, but we've never had a problem getting in, even without a reservation. You may have to wait for a bit on a weekend night if no reservation, but it's worth... more
