Closing night at Famous Luigi's

The thing I'll miss the most is the surly wait staff. And the pizza. Not as good as AV's, though.

    That is really the end of an era. Went there as a college student back inb the 70's.

        According to the article, we foodies (if you agree with that tag) are to blame ... the public is abandoning the "old standards" and flocking to newer upscale restos.

          Never had the pizza but I love the red sauce Italian-American thing. I'm guessing that, in the city, it's left to Pasta Mia

            Bistro Italiano is still decent, particularly the white pizza. They've been around for quite a while as well.
