I am Luigi, an Italian-Israeli architect and an avid cook. I am married to my wife, Idit and a father to two super cute girls. We moved to Tel Aviv after living in Paris for many years before moving to Stockholm and Rome. I grew up in my mom's kitchen, highly inspired by her cooking, aromas and flavors. It was the best schooling I could have asked for. Food is my biggest love, a massive part of my culture, and a great tradition to pass on to my girls; with it's rich history, vibrant colors and infinite flavors. My family is from Sardinia, and as a result, I admire the sea and love to fish. I am also passionate about design and used to be a food photographer. I specialize in working with raw vegetables. I also have a fantastic marinated herb and citrus fish and an orange and honey glazed chicken. I live in a roof-top apartment in the bustling center of Tel Aviv with my family. During the Summer I host on my spacious roof-top, which is full of character and provides a perfect backdrop for the meals I serve.
I'm in my forties
What hosts are saying about Luigi
This was my second dinner with Luigi and his wife Edit and it was again simply awesome. Luigi is a great host and when you eat at his home, he makes you feel like a close friend. The food was fantastic. From the antipasti, to the pasta, to the beef and the dessert (a custard with fresh cherries on top). I highly recommend Luigi's Italian feast down in Yafo
I celebrated my sister's bachelorette party with about 15 girls. as we arrived, Luigi was waiting for us with refreshments and wine, and right from the start we knew it was a huge success. The evening was perfect, everything went exactly as planned . The food was delicious and I got so much positive feedback from the girls. The place, the atmosphere, the personal touch - everything was perfect. Thank you Luigi. I would definitely come and visit soon! Yael
We loved the food and presentation. Meeting Luigi and Edit was like being welcomed by friends or family that you are so happy to see. The atmosphere is very comfortable and enjoyable. We had great wine, starters, meal, desert. All fresh and so tasty. The conversations and food were so good that we had a hard time to leave! We highly recommend booking a meal with Luigi and Edit because you will learn so much about Israel, the amazing cooking of Luigi from Roma, and make new friends!!!!
