Luigi's Italian Delicatessen is a family-owned and -operated business that has been in operation for 35 years. The sandwich "technicians," as they like to be called, have the makings down to a science, which is perhaps why people spill in from as far as Rio Vista. The Italian deli is home to the Luigi Boy sandwich and many other signature recipes and prepared foods. Dishes such as giant meatballs and tri tips, served with a green salad, are very popular. For dessert, the bread pudding with rum sauce is lip-smacking good. The deli draws a large lunch crowd, accommodated by six tables. Catering services are offered for special events. Owners Kim and Louis Montano keep their doors open seven days a week.
