Leonardi's Pizza has been a staple in Buffalo for as long as I can recall.  I'm from Rochester but even before moving to Buffalo, I was well aware of Leonardi's Pizza.  Leonardi's pepperoni pizza was out of this world if you're a pepperoni pizza lover...I think the greasiness added a special touch of Mmmmmm Mmmmmm Good!!!

Reports quoted Leonardi's owner as saying this:

"It is with a heavy heart to announce that we have closed our business as of Sunday, December 29, 2019," the Facebook post said. "We realize that this may come as a shock, however, after much consideration, our owners, Hector and Anne have decided after 47 years, it was time to hang up the aprons and retire."

What made Leonardi's So Special?

Thank you Leonardi Family for an unforgettable Buffalo business which will undoubtedly never be forgotten ... the Legendary Leonardi's Pizza & Wings.
