Luigi: Eh, Seymour! You want your usual table?
Principle Skinner: No, no, Luigi. I’d like one with two seats. I’ll be dining with a friend tonight.
Luigi: Hey, good for you, huh?
Principle Skinner: Hmm. They treat you real nice here.
Luigi: Hey, Salvatore, guess who’s here! Mr. Kookalamanza and-a some real ugly kid.
– Sweet Seymour Skinner’s Baadasssss Song (The Simpsons Season 5 – Episode 19)
Luigi’s restaurant (and Luigi the character) have become firmly entrenched in the world of The Simpsons, so it might surprise you to learn that Sweet Seymour Skinner’s Baadasssss Song is the first appearance of both the character and the restaurant on the show. Here’s a fun fact: Luigi’s full name is actually Luigi Risotto!
Luigi’s Menu Items:
- Pizza (with your choice of topping)
- Plate of the red crap
- Crap from a can
- Half order of garlic bread
There are probably other menu items I’m missing, so please add more in the comments. We’ve already talked about Luigi, but what about Salvatore? As far as I can tell, he shows up in two episodes and is one of the chefs at the restaurant. Also, Luigi apparently feels comfortable yelling private conversations to Salvatore, despite the fact that his customers can hear him. Salvatore gets no lines of his own, but I like to imagine he’s just as disinterested in providing a quality dinning experience as Luigi is.
Mr. Burns: Bravissimo, Luigi! Bring us your finest bottle of vino!
Luigi: Hey, you trust-ah Luigi, huh? He knows-ah what for to make-ah really nice the amore.
Jackie: Oh, Monty, I’ve never been to a more romantic restaurant.
Luigi: Hey, Salvatore! Break out the cheap hooch for Mr. No-Tip and the dried-up-ah zombie he’s-ah captured!
