We ordered a spinach ravioli dish and a gnocchi dish that came with a delicious creamy sauce. Once our orders were placed we hardly had to wait at all. Our food came out within about twenty minutes, and in the meantime we enjoyed not one but two glasses of red wine.
Our experience was amazing, the food was delicious, and Luisa was an angel. I cannot wait to come back in the future simply to visit with her again.

buon appetito!

Wow. Just wow. Best pasta in the city that is home made and then has the best and freshest ingredients possible. Friendly service and great prices. Also Luisa is a total gem, she greeted us as we walk in and asked us how our meal was on the way out. Offered to give us free drinks of Limoncello as well! What a class act.

Luisa's Pizza and Pasta est. 1959

Both Owner and Executive Chef, Luisa came from a long line of entrepreneurs and restauranteurs. Her passion for cooking stem from having watched her Grandmother -and namesake - in the kitchen from a very young age. Instead of playing outside with the other children her age, Luisa started honing her craft- learning about recipes, picking just the right ingredients and meticulously preparing food. Since then, making and serving delicious meals has become not only her life's work but her ultimate passion!

Taste the difference years of experience can make. Luisa has been in the food industry for over 5 decades. She has consulted for, built and ran 37 restaurants in her career including Luisa's Pizza & Pasta.  She is a prime example of how doing what you love and following your heart can indeed take you places. In her case, her heart belongs to the kitchen.
