Italian Buffet Menu


Italian cooking has always been our specialty. (Don't let our name fool you!)

At Ludwig's, we take great satisfaction in our ability to prepare and serve excellent, restaurant-quality Italian food to groups of fifty, one hundred and more. We do this without sacrificing the taste and quality that lovers of Italian food have come to expect from us. 

Peeling and chopping garlic, breading fresh eggplant, picking out only the finest and freshest ingredients - - - this has become a labor of love for us at Ludwig's. 

It is for this reason that we take pride in offering our customers this classic Italian Buffet Menu!
