We passed by Luigi's Pizzeria in East Setauket while were going to see a town I had never heard of before after living in Long Island for decades named Strong's Neck. Along the way I got hungry and saw it located in a shopping center at the stop light we were stuck at. We pulled in to see if this pizza was any good.

Luigi's Pizza was clean and nice inside. After walking past several booths I arrived at the pizza counter which had a nice variety of pies behind the glass enclosure. A not so friendly young man asked me what I wanted and I ended up ordering a regular slice and a Sicilian slice. I wanted garlic knots too but I didn't see them displayed. This is a weird way to try to sell people on items. Hiding your knots doesn't make customers crave them when they see them. Luigi's takes the hidden approach to their food I guess.


Immediately upon ordering the kid couldn't wait to charge me and get the money out of my hands. It was like he was charging me before I was even done ordering. I didn't care for this at all. After giving him the money, I asked if I can also have 6 garlic knots. This seemed to annoy him, but he quickly grabbed the money from me as well.


The Sicilian slice was $2.95 and the regular was $2.65. Florida has make me used to paying these high prices for slices, but I kind of expected Luigi's Pizza in Setauket to be a bit cheaper. When the slices came out I bit into the Sicilian first. It didn't possess too much taste, but it had a nice crisp crust. The pizza maker definitely knew how to make the dough properly here. The cheese was average, and I do not think it was that expensive of a blend. The sauce was good, and it wasn't applied heavily which is what I like.

The regular slice was crisp and held up nicely. The cheese (although it was the same kind as the Sicilian) tasted better on top of this thin crust. The sauce was applied perfectly under the generous amount of cheese. If I go back to Luigi's Pizza in East Setauket, I will probably stick with the regular slice.

Luigi's Pizza in East Setauket gets 4 out of 8 slices.

    Sounds like a good place to avoid. If I am treated like crap in a place, I never go back.

    I think it’s important to weigh it all out; the place was clean, the pizza good enough to go back for – the behavior/attitude of the clerk can be overlooked for the moment. Management s/b informed so they can know what’s happening. Good food prepared well in a clean place trumps the kid’s attitude IMHO

    Luigis pizza in setauket has the worst pizza by far on the entire north shore .. The large pie is medium at best and it tastes like cardboard with a little sauce and cheese on it … Horrible

    To Pizza Expert: You wouldn’t know good pizza if it walked up and bit you. While I wouldn’t say Luigi’s is the best in town (that honor in my opinion goes to Via), I’d characterize Luigi’s pizza as very good and consistently so. The place is clean, the staff is friendly, and yes, they take your money immediately after you order. So what? If that’s your only complaint…oh wait, they “take the hidden approach” by not displaying their entire menu on a silver platter for your spoiled ass to browse through. Give me a break. I guess you don’t venture out of Strong’s Neck too often. Why don’t you do us all a favor and just stay there. The world doesn’t need another self-entitled douche bag complaining that there’s not enough sauce on their pizza or that the cheese isn’t “that expensive of a blend,” as if you have the first clue about how mozzarella cheese is even made. On second thought, I recommend that you do leave Strong’s Neck…to take an English class. Because you’re pretty clueless there too. Or perhaps you could just pick up a book once in a while, like they have at the Emma Clark Library. Or did that place also escape your attention?
