2010 Best of Sacramento Winner - Best After-Soccer Spot

Luigi’s Slice has earned the dubious distinction of being a handy midtown after-bar destination, whose very large pizza slices act as a sturdy alcohol-soak for woozy customers. It’s an unfortunate distinction, however, as the sleek little pizzeria has a lot more to offer than just its late-night munchie opportunities. You have to appreciate a place that offers pizza by the slice – how often can a group decide on a single flavor combination? Luigi’s slice selection isn’t large, however – there’s normally only four or five from which to choose, including the very yummy and over-the-top “Meat Lover,” piled with pepperoni, sausage, salami and turkey bacon, a good ol’ plain cheese pizza, and a vegetarian variety, sprinkled with mushrooms, onions, olives and green peppers. Interestingly, the slices are reheated in the pizzeria’s large oven after you order them (which only takes several minutes), resulting in a pizza whose crust is cracklingly, crispily satisfying and whose top remains moist and delectable. The slices are laugh-out-loud huge, and it would take a mighty big appetite to consume the entire thing (which is the equivalent of at least three normal-sized slices). If you’re persnickety about certain ingredient combinations, you can certainly order your own whole pizza (Luigi’s offers the usual lineup of toppings)—it just takes a little longer. While you’re waiting, try one of the pizzeria’s tasty draft beers—I’d recommend the Moose Drool Ale—and grab a table outside on the MARRS building’s lovely patio area, a great place to people-watch and relax in Sacramento’s balmy, flip-flop-friendly weather. — Kira O'Donnell
