About Leggio's Italian Ristorante

When entering  Leggio’s Italian Ristorante, a large seating area with a wide assortment of booths and tables comforts the waiting customer. The large bar area is complete with a fireplace for a cozy winter’s evening. In the warmer months, an outdoor deck with a large gazebo allows those who enjoy the fresh air to have a meal or a drink in the cooler evening temperature. It is also a haven for those who smoke, since smoking is prohibited inside. For those who prefer to stay indoors, the central air conditioning unit keeps everyone cool and comfortable.

For those who enjoy sports and other TV programming, the bar is laden with wide-screen televisions. In the autumn months, the NFL Sunday Ticket is an afternoon attraction for area sports fans.

Leggio’s also accommodates medium-size private parties and has on- or off-site catering services. The off-site catering may include a personal attendant to guarantee smooth success for the event.

Leggio’s is much more than a pizzeria. It offers both authentic Italian and American entrees in a warm and cordial environment. There is plenty of parking and the establishment is handicapped accessible.

When Lori Pascucci, a lifelong resident of Plains Township, was attending school in Philadelphia, she met Salvatore Leggio, a native of Sicily who was a partner in Sal’s & Joe’s bar in Morristown, N.J. After they married, they spent years in South Jersey pursuing other professions, but they decided to move to Northeastern Pennsylvania and open a restaurant in Lori’s hometown. Thus, Leggio’s was born, and it’s been a success story ever since its opening 10 years ago.

Leggio’s has sponsored annual golf tournaments to benefit the American Cancer Society. The tournaments serve as a memorial to Lori’s sister, Christine Pascucci, who succumbed to cancer. Christine’s passing had a great effect on the members of the Leggio family, and they continue to donate to the American Cancer Society in the hopes of finding a cure.

Leggio’s combination of a great location, excellent meals, friendly atmosphere, and reasonable prices assure that customers will make return visits to dine at one of the area's best eating establishments.
