Pizza Luigi San Diego
San Diego, CA 92104
CASH ONLY Great spot to grab a couple slices of NY style pizza. A variety of premade pizzas with different topping line the display box. From traditional to unique and bizarre. I recent tried a slice with pepperoni, pineapple, jalapeno and ricotta cheese. Great blend of flavors and textures that seemed to really work well together.
The battle continues in San Diego for the best NY style pizza. I have to say that Pizzeria Luigi beats Bronx for me. I recently had my first pie from PL, a large pepperoni. It had the perfect amount of cheese, sauce and meat. I find some NY styles too often have virtually no sauce, which is always a fail for me. I like the El Cajon location because it has an inviting feel that makes you actually want to eat in, vs. pay and eat at home. With a pool table and many beers on draft to occupy you while your pie cooks, and lots of seating both at the counter and at tables, it screams "chill, have a beer, eat a slice, and have a great day".
Excellent selection of local beers on tap for a price that won't break the bank. They have a huge list of pies, so take your time and pick the right one. Don't let the fools in line rush you. be adventerous and get outside of your pizza comfort zone. Great thin crust pies at this spot that will have you coming back again-and-again. PS Anything with Ricotta
LOVE Pizzeria Luigi! Usually my favorite is the artichoke pizza but last week we ordered the doatello with caramelized onions which was also super good! Delivery is cheap, the pizzas are huge (thin crust) and so tasty, also ordered a greek salad, which I liked, but when it came, all I wanted was the pizza, so probably would skip it next time. Sadly they do not accept credit cards, so had to get cash beforehand... Also, had no idea but recently learned you can get a full pizza delivered, but order by the slice which is a really amazing concept! BEST PIZZA!
I didn't bring any lunch and saw some pizza slices in the fridge at work, and no one claimed it, so I took a slice LOL. The next day, I reheated another slice for breakfast, but I accidently burnt it, so I just reheated the rest to share with the office. It smelled so good, that we decided to order two more pies- one veggie, and one with meat. I didn't realize that this pizza joint was so popular! Pizzeria Luigi was also featured on the Food Network. I only tried the one with pepperoni and sausage this time, but it wasn't as yummy as the one I had before. It was still good though! It was thin, crispy, and very flavorful. I'm glad I got to try it fresh from the oven this time!
