Greetings from our little Luigi's family. We must have something in common for you to find us...WE ALL LOVE FOOD. Here at Luigi's we are passionate about flavour + freshness, we pride ourselves on making our food from scratch daily with lots of passion + patience. Our family has been feeding the fine city of Dundee for over a century, we just love sharing good, honest + tasty food.
Our dough- we use a pre ferment Biga method to allow for a tastier + more digestable pizza the process takes 3 days but is worth the wait. We freshly slice all of our Italian meats daily, we use Italian Tomatoes+ Fior Di Latte Mozzarella. We cook our chicken from scratch, roasting + marinating our veg for extra flavour. Our meatballs are made using a family recipe that dates back 4 generations and our garnishes + dips are made in house daily. Mamma Maria whips up our ever popular Cheesecakes and Arancini from scratch, you guys cant get enough of them. We also make our chips in house using the best potatoes we can get our hands on. We don't believe in scrimping on ingredients, we hope you can taste the difference.
We offer Gluten Free + Vegan options, making our cashew cheese and vegan parmesan in house. We fry in vegetable oil and use sepearte pans for meat + veg products.
We can get super busy at weekends so we urge you to download our app, 'LUIGI'S PIZZERIA' in your app/google store. PRE-ORDERING BEFORE 5PM is advised at the weekend to avoid a long wait or dissapointment. This helps us out massively as we are only a small team.
We are excited to share our knowledge & experince with you all, check out our Dough Courses & Pizza Consultations.
WE LOVE WHAT WE DO, WE HOPE YOU DO TOO.
Peace. Love. Pizza
The Luigi's Family
PIZZA GRANDAD MOVED TO SCOTLAND IN 1940 FROM A TINY VILLAGE ON THE AMALFI COAST. HIS GRANDFATHER HAD DUNDEES FIRST GELATO BUSINESS IN 1920!
OUR FAMILY HAS BEEN FEEDING THE FINE FOLK OF DUNDEE FOR OVER 100 YEARS!
LUIGI STARTED OFF WITH A FISH & CHIP SHOP IN DRYBURGH FOR 30 YEARS BEFORE MOVING TO STRATHMARTINE ROAD WHERE LUIGI'S DINER WAS QUEUED DOWN THE STREET DAILY. DUE TO DEMAND HE OPENED THE PREMISES NEXT DOOR AS A CHIP SHOP BEFORE BRANCHING OUT & SELLING PIZZAS. IT WAS A FAMILY AFFAIR WITH MAMMA MARIA NAPPING ON TATTIE BAGS UNTIL SHE WAS OLD ENOUGH TO COOK.
THE GODFATHER OF PIZZA WAS WELL KNOWN IN DUNDEE FOR HIS FRIENDLY SERVICE, CHEEKY SMILE & WONDERFUL FOOD. LOUIE LOVED HIS CUSTOMERS & THREE GENERATIONS LATER OUR FAMILY CONTINUES TO FEED & SERVE OUR COMMUNITY WITH THE SAME ENTHUSIASM, JOY & PASSION THAT LUIGI WAS SO FAMOUS FOR. WE ARE PROUD TO KEEP HIS DREAM ALIVE. THIS YEAR WE CELEBRATE 75 YEARS OF LUIGI'S.
