Our Story

decorative flourish roberts family roberts family

It all started in 1991 after a couple of weeks driving through Italy with my brother and father eating some of the most delicious food you have ever tasted. We had a cutting board, a good bread knife and a corkscrew. That was all we needed! The crisp crust on the wood fired pizzas, the flavorful fresh pastas, mouthwatering desserts, and the delicious bread, OH the bread!

West Lebanon, NH (Dartmouth/Lake Sunapee area) would be the perfect place for our first location. Located along the Mascoma River in the Powerhouse Mall Plaza and then a second location in Nashua (1996) along the busy stretch of Daniel Webster Highway.

Lui Lui (Pronounced Louie Louie) is an award winning wood fired pizza and pasta restaurant & bar serving lunch and dinner 7 days a week. We make our dough "on site" every day. Even our croutons are made with the bread we bake. That attention to detail is what sets us apart from the many large restaurant chains in our market.

Our famous freshly baked rolls (up to 1,000 per day) and dipping oil have brought generations of people back to Lui Lui again and again. It's been my lifelong passion to welcome people through our doors and I take pride in all the team members we hire (some still with us since day 1) and the care we put into the food and beverages we serve.

We can't wait for you to come and try our food and bring you back to Italy, if only for an hour.
