History

Luigi often treats his customers rudely, insulting and belittling them; at times under his breath, at other times in a conversational tone, and sometimes shouting the slurs to the (unseen) chef Salvatore. Luigi seems to have some connections to the mafia. Local gangster Fat Tony is a frequent customer at his restaurant, despite the fact that he was one of the targets of Fat Tony's plan to get rid of all other food retailers except Marge's.[2] He says the phrase, "I guarantee" a lot.

Luigi may have been an illegal immigrant because he disappeared during an immigration officer's introduction at Luigi's restaurant and took the citizenship exam with Apu.[3]

When Homer was a food critic, he gave Luigi's eatery a poor review; in retaliation, Luigi hired a friend to place a horse's head in Homer's bed (a reference to The Godfather). Homer subsequently ate the head and gave it a bad review.[4]

Fat Tony had Luigi on his list of people he should not shoot.[5]

Luigi can't speak Italian but fractured English as it's what his parents spoke at home. When he ordered cheese for his lasagna he took help from Milhouse with the translation.[6]

Because he is a member of the Hollywood Foreign Press he was selected to tell Bart that Angry Dad was nominated to a Golden Globe.[7]
