Ask for Luigi has had long lines since they opened in 2013, with everybody waiting to try the fresh pasta, meatballs, and porcini mushroom risotto. That all changed during the pandemic when the 27-seat spot switched over and started taking reservations. Order anything from the chalkboard menu with wine and food specials, and consider trying an amaro as an aperitif or digestif. The pasta is always cooked perfectly al dente and the mismatched vintage plates and amaro glasses could have been rummaged from your grandma’s cupboard.
