Imported wood-burning pizza oven at Leoci’s

Chef and owner, Roberto Leoci, just got his authentic wood-burning pizza oven straight from Firenze (Florence) in Italy.  Sounds like when Leoci’s Trattoria says “authentic” they mean it!  The huge wrap-around outdoor deck looks nearly complete. Opening  coming  soon!

Leoci’s Trattoria to Open Soon!

“It’s going to be a casual,  affordable neighborhood cafe,”  says owner,  Chef Roberto Leoci, who with his wife,  is currently hard at work renovating the little restaurant at 606 Abercorn.   There will be a spacious outdoor deck along one side and around the back, plus they hope eventually to have a bocce court.  The menu will be Italian,  primarily pizza, pasta and panini. However, when we mentioned our passion for veal, the chef said he might add a nice veal scaloppini to the mix.  Leoci already has his beer and wine license approved, so that obstacle course is over. He hopes to be open in just a few weeks, though we suspect the extensive renovations may take a bit longer than that.  Buon appetito!
