Luigi's Ristorante History
Luigi's originated in 1984 in Clymer, PA a small community in Indiana County. The Clymer location was originally a tavern. William "Skip" Tate along with two of his sons, Louis and Edward, decided to buy the building and introduce an Italian menu to the area.
With no prior restaurant experience, Louis and Edward were blessed with the help and guidance of their father, Skip and Mother, Barbara. Over the years, they learned many lessons from Skip and Barb on the "old School" methods of hard work and running a business. Their sisters and brothers, and some aunts, uncles and cousins continually lending a hand, has also played a large part in their success.
Our Family Heritage
The Tate family name was originally Teti. We come from the Abruzzi region of Italy, the province of Chieti, and the town of Torricella Peligina.
Our grandfather always said the Abruzzse were the purest Italians, because the Conquering Armies could never get to their women - hid high in the mountains! Our grandmother was from the Calabria region of Italy. It was her recipes that inspired a love for food and cooking in our father. Her recipes became his, and now we serve them to you.
Barb & Skip has since passed away, but his delicious recipes and methods are still used daily here at Luigi's.
