“a place steeped in family tradition”
Lagomarcino’s is a place steeped in family tradition. Sometimes, during the busy lunch hour as you’re sitting in one of the gorgeous, handcrafted mahogany booths, you will start to feel a nostalgic calm, a satisfying wistfulness. You will begin to notice pleasant memories drifting quietly past your table, sweet memories smelling faintly of chocolate. In 1908 Angelo Lagomarcino, an immigrant from Northern Italy, founded Lagomarcino’s Confectionery in Moline, Illinois. Angelo and Luigia worked with their children Charlie, Mary and Tom. During the depression Charlie purchased the equipment and recipes of the Meadowbrook Candy Company. Charlie and his cousin Joe Schenone learned the art of working with chocolate. Mary packed candy boxes, ordered retail merchandise and cooked for the luncheonette. Tom was the ice cream maker.
