Whether you’re prone to regular Italian cravings or simply fancy the occasional slice of pizza, there’s a new spot in town that will leave you feeling more than satisfied. Located just two blocks from Passeig de Gràcia, Luigi is an Italian restaurant run by Naples-born Alfredo and his brother. Inspired by their mother’s cooking, Luigi offers an extensive and authentic menu with a modern twist, as traditional hearty dishes are served in a rustic, yet glamorous, space. “This restaurant is a dream come true,” explained Alfredo. “We just do what we love.” The flavoursome toppings, fluffy crusts and wood-fire oven mean that Luigi’s pizzas are well and truly Neapolitan, and the impressive Berkel 1040 meat slicer ensures that your prosciutto comes wafer thin. There are also plenty of pasta dishes on offer, including gluten-free options, as well as a number of delectable, all-Italian wines. And when it comes to dessert, you can’t go wrong with the tiramisu or the chocolate-filled ravioli.
