Dining Guide

Luigi’s Gourmet is a True Taste of Italy

After more than 40 years in Johnston, it’s still all in the details

Posted

At Luigi’s, three generations of the Battista family have been serving hungry guests for over 40 years - and they keep coming back for more. Maybe it’s because of the thoughtful details of their cuisine, like handmade spaghetti and gnocchi. Maybe it’s because all of the desserts are made fresh, in house. Most likely, it’s because of Chef Ralph Battista’s perfectly authentic Italian cuisine, ranging from classics like Frutti di Mare and Pappardelle Bolognese to healthy selections from the Amalfi Coast, like Grilled Chicken Caprese and Amalfi Coast Roasted Scrod. Pair all of that with craft cocktails like a Tuscan Pear Martini or Sicilian Lemonade, and enjoy a handmade cannoli or some tiramisu for dessert. Their loyalty app even rewards diners for coming back to enjoy again. Does it get any better?

Gourmet To Go

Attached to the main restaurant is Luigi’s Gourmet Express, offering prepared foods for lunch or dinner to go – everything from signature sandwiches (like Luigi’s Overstuffed Veal Parm, Old School Grinder and Chicken Francaise Sandwich) to full dinners. Think pastas and sauces to go, as well as family sized meals of Pasta & Meatballs, Chicken Parm & Pasta or Veal Parm & Pasta, ready for you to pick up and take home and eat. Guests can also enjoy a quick meal in the cafe dining area. Custom catering is also available; see their website for the extensive catering and banquet menu.
