The Hersch Posted September 26, 2006 Share Posted September 26, 2006 Luigi's One thing I love about this restaurant is that its name is actually "Famous Luigi's". I ate there for the first time in decades a year or so ago, and thought it was not bad at all. It didn't feel quite as much like entering a time warp as I had imagined it would, but there was a bit of that. Excellent fried squid. Decent pasta. I don't think we tried anything else. You can see their menus and other stuff on their WEBSITE. When we first were seated, the server asked if we'd like drinks, and I said I'd like a Campari and soda. This was clearly a first for her. I had to repeat it a couple of times before she got it down, but then she returned from the bar saying they didn't have any Campari. So I ordered something else, and then she came back and said they had Campari after all, and did I still want the Campari and soda. So I said yes. A couple of minutes later, she returned with my drink, which appeared to be plain soda water (or I suppose it could have been 7-Up). I said, what's this? And she said "That's your Campari and soda". I said no it isn't, Campari is bright red. She said "oh", and took it back and moments later reappeared with an actual Campari and soda, which was perfectly fine. To be fair, she appeared to be about 16, and it was all so weird and silly that it made the whole evening. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
