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.
