After about five months on the scene, Luigi's has closed its doors, just a few days after playing host to the Davis Music Festival.
The windows are covered in paper and the doors are locked. The Music Fest sign is still ziptied to the rails in front of the pizzeria.
The Davis location, which opened in January, was one of three Luigi’s restaurants owned by Greg and Linda Brida. The two other restaurants are located in Midtown and on Stockton Boulevard in Sacramento.
Live music was a key part of the restaurant's identity throughout its short life. The stage downstairs played host to a steady stream of live shows, including Saturday’s Davis Music Festival, which proved to be the last hurrah.
A representative at the Midtown location said the Davis store just wasn't as popular as the others, and that the other two locations will continue as they have.
If we get more specifics, we will share them.
Were you a Luigi’s fan? Are you sad to see it go?
