Luigis Italian Experience (College Station)
Always drove passed Luigis and never thought twice about them having “rice pasta” or being gluten-free friendly. I checked out their menu randomly and was like RICE PASTA?!!? LETS GO!
First of all walking in to a water fountain and live musicians singing was the most epic experience I’ve seen so far in College Station… this restaurant transports you to Italy with the theme, the music, and the service. Our waitress Taylor was professional, awesome, and very knowledgeable about the entrees, items and any questions about the menu.
Got some Pinot Grigio and lady got sangria and I tasted it and quickly switched to sangria haha, it was so darn good and tasty. Tasted like deserted on an Italian island and all I had was fresh fruit and made some epic drink with it. YUM. Had a shrimp appetizer with some kind of rice and the mussels. Mi lady loved the mussels and the shrimp with rice was like oooooomg I dunno what it was but the sauce on that dish was so good.
I haven’t been able to find veal scallopini anywhere that does it gluten-free usually places pre-deep fry it or something but the chef was able to accommodate me with a proper veal dish with scalloped potatoes and fresh veggies which was some of the best I have had in a long time.
I had no idea this gem was hiding in College Station and now I’m ready to go back and listen to more live music and drink some sangria and try the rice pasta next time! Awesome job Luigi!
