Greek | Italian
Worth a return

The bill of fare along Augusta’s Broad Street is a yin-yang mix of cutting-edge trends and yesterday’s classics. Luigi’s, since 1949, is the latter, offering a menu of Italian-American and Greek-American standards in a tin-ceiling dining room that seems not to have changed since the beginning. The 25-cents-per-play jukebox stationed in every booth is a musical time machine offering tunes that go deep back into the 20th century — before Spotify, before Walkman, some even before television!

Likewise, the food. Dining at Luigi’s is downright nostalgic. Baked spaghetti, eggplant parmigiana, lasagna, fettucine alfredo: all the old-time Italianate dishes are present and well-accounted for, as are such vintage Greek-restaurant standards as moussaka, lemon chicken, spanakopittes, and, of course, feta-topped Greek salad.

Note that lunch is served only on Friday. Also note that Luigi’s has become a favorite haunt of people who attend Augusta’s Masters Golf Tournament in early April, so it can be tough then to get a table.
