Luigi says “ciao” for now to DeNunzio’s in Pioneer Square

This e-mail news flash just in from the mightily mustachioed Luigi DeNunzio, regarding the “temporary closure” of his flagship restaurant in Pioneer Square:

Ciao,

It is with a heavy heart that I am announcing the temporary closing of DeNunzio’s Trattoria, formerly Luigi’s Grotto, and La Buca.

We fought a losing battle with our landlord and are forced to find a new location with a better environment.

I want to thank the many for a great 18 years of cooking classes, birthdays and friendship. I look forward to seeing you at the other 2 restaurants, Al Boccalino, 1 Yesler Way or Cafe Bengodi, 701 1st Ave. Cooking Classes will be held at Al Boccalino.

Again many thanks for great times and please stop by to see me.

Mil Grazie,

Luigi
