Dreaming of a Career in Adelaide's best Italian Restaurant?
About Luigi's Delicatessen
For as long as I can remember, it has always been a dream of mine to open my own little cafe. I was born in Naples, Italy, so food, wine, people and family were an everyday affair and it was always as I describe it like “the theatre of food”. Where each and every meal was made with love and everyone would come together to eat, talk, laugh and share the givings of the day. So it’s in my blood and I am so glad that it is.
Luigi’s to me, is an extension of my home and my customers are an extension of my family – I am honoured everytime somebody walks through our doors.
I believe in offering not just amazing food and coffee but first class service with a smile and genuinely caring our customers.
Enjoy and buon appetito!
In 2014 when Luigi’s first opened, Mamma insisted that she come to work with me at 5am most mornings to help with making meatballs, lasagna, parmiggiana, sauces, soups and more.
Standing out in the cold outside her home most mornings at 5am waiting for me to pick her up, Mamma was excited to get to work and cook her little heart out. Mamma loved our customers and they loved her.
Mamma wanted people to have a good time and enjoy the food.
Sadly she passed away on the 21st of January 2017.
I will always ensure that we carry on her legacy and keep making my beautiful little Mamma proud.
Rest In Peace Anna Di Costanzo, the most amazing lady I have ever known!
Cooking is all about people. Food is maybe the only universal thing that really has the power to bring everyone together. No matter what culture, everywhere around the world, people get together to eat
