Was in San Diego the past couple of days. My niece was in town and she had to take some medical school exam called the MCAT at the San Diego State University. I could not pass up the chance on eating at Luigi again. She was at the test so it was just me when I went to Luigi so I could not eat a whole pie so I just got two slices. One the Capone which is a meat type of pie and the Crime Stopper I think it was called. Has Ricotta and Meatballs as well as I think Marinara sauce. The guy told me it is like Lasagna. Well I tried it and it is very reminiscent to lasagna. When he said that it was like lasagna I was not sure if that would end up being a good or bad thing but had to try it and you know what it was good. I made a mistake though I should have bought a whole pie to go and brought it back to the hotel and put it in the fridge then brought it back home to LA. Even reheated Luigi taste exceptional.
Last time I went to the location on Diners Drive Ins and Dives so this time I tried the other location. Pizza just as good at both locations but next time I will go to the first location from DDD. I just like it better, I mean the decor and area not the pizza, it's the same. Still have not seen Mr. Luigi, oh well.
Here are some pics but before that I have to say the pizza is exceptional. Did I say that already, yeah, okay. As Guy would say it's out of bounds and out of this world. I have to say it is. It's my favorite NY Style Pie. I like many different NY Style Pies but this takes the cake, um, I mean, takes the pie. I love so many different NY Style Pies but this just jumps out beyond those others. I wish Luigi was in LA not SD. Now I'm tempted to go to SD every year just for pie, but man two hour drive. I need to get my baking situation up to par at home so I can do the Luigi clone and see if I can duplicate it so I don't have to drive to SD. Well, SD is nice though but if I'm going there it's for pie and for sight seeing. I'd go to Tijuana too but TJ is so dangerous now I'd forget that.
I tried to post pics but the file sizes are way to big and I have to resize them. I will do so and post pics tomorrow. Gotta go now but tomorrow you'll see the pics. By the way this is the perfect pie.
