An Original from Mamma Leone’s Restaurant

       A couple of years ago I wrote about Mamma Leone’s, a popular Italian family-style restaurant in New York City, which operated from 1906 until its closing in 1987.  And I’ve received many comments on that post from readers who shared some great memories of it. 

       Karen, one of my readers, sent me a photo of the menu from Mamma Leone’s, and I’d like to share it with you.  Although I cannot find a date on the menu, the prices – such as a regular dinner for $5.50 and a bottle of wine for $5 – indicate that it was from many years ago.  Thanks again for sharing this, Karen!

Feel free to leave a comment, and please come back often – I write and post every day!  And if you like what I have to say and how I say it, you’ll probably enjoy my novels as well.  They’re listed below, and you can read more about them on my improved website, designed and built by my son Don,  On my site, you’ll also find excerpts of my books that you can read – please check it out! 

And to view updated blogs in real-time, go to or – they’re both great sites!

    This post brought back fond memories! My brother is 15 years younger than I am, and sometimes for his birthday I would take him places as his gift– a couple of times to NYC.

    I was in my 20’s, so treating him to Mama Leone’s was within my budget. I remember those crispy dessert things with the confectioner’s sugar at the end of the meal!
