Luigi's Pizza in Park Slope, Brooklyn has been in business since 1973.

We absolutely love @luigispizzaparkslope 's #signage with the #script #lettering and are huge fans of their fresh mozzarella #pizza 🍕which is sprinkled with their home-grown fresh herbs. The 2nd-generation owner Giovanni Lanzo told us, "my father Luigi emigrated here from Calabria where he was a farmer. He opened this Pizzeria using his family's recipes for the sauce and pizza. He still grows many of the fresh ingredients we use including tomatoes 🍅 and herbs 🌿 at his farm in Staten Island". Photo from 2006 and full interview with Giovanni appear in our book, "Store Front:The Disappearing Face of New York".
