Luigi’s Italian Restaurant on Brambleton Avenue in Roanoke will celebrate 43 years in business this year.
The owner, Maristane Rocha, got in touch with me to tell me about a special offer for their anniversary: Two dinners, including salad, bread, bruschetta, iced tea or soft drink, and dessert for $43.
This offer will be available Wednesday night (Sept. 25) only. Here are the entree choices:
VEAL PARMIGIANA: Breaded Veal cutlet topped with mozzarella cheese & tomato sauce. Served with spaghetti.
LASAGNA: Wide strips of pasta, baked in five layers filled with mozzarella cheese, ground beef & ricotta cheese served with marinara sauce.
CHICKEN MAFIOSA: Browned chicken breast simmered with garlic, salt and pepper in a delicate white wine sauce. Served with spaghetti.
PENNE ALLA VODKA: Penne served with a light creamy tomato sauce with a splash of premium vodka.
TILAPIA: Mild tilapia filet crusted with Parmesan cheese. Served with broccoli and boiled new potatoes.
Dessert choice: sorbet, Brazilian custard pudding, or ice cream
Luigi’s is open 4:30 to 10 p.m. If you’d like to help them celebrate or you’re just looking for a special mid-week treat, call Luigi’s at 540-989-6277 to make a reservation.
