Lining Up With Locals at Luigi Pizzeria in Brooklyn, NY
Grimaldi’s has longer lines and DiFara’s gets more media shine, but sometimes you just want a slice: a terrific, cheesy, chewy, subway-ride-priced Brooklyn slice. And on that front, Luigi’s takes it. Started by a trio of Sicilian buddies almost a quarter-century back, their pies make no apologies. Nor should they: “this is real New York pizza—we’re not in Italy, we’re not in Chicago, we’re in Brooklyn; so that’s what we do.” And they do it as well as anyone in these parts. Which is why folks line up everyday at their small takeout window, an all-ages United Nations mix of enthusiasts, enjoying one of Brooklyn’s tastiest under-the-radar pies.
