Simply The Best Food

Il Camino Italian Cafe in Leominster has been serving nonni’s sauce for 50 decades

LEOMINSTER — Louis Daigneault was 7 decades aged when he learned how to bread veal on major of tomato bins in the cozy kitchen of Il Camino Italian Cafe, and his older brother, Rick, was 12 when he and their other siblings have been trained in earning home made pasta.

“We ended up excellent at cracking eggs,” Rick Daigneault recalled past 7 days.

In 1970, the Daigneaults’ mother and father, Jack and Frances (Ciccolini), procured the Italian restaurant on 555 Central St. from Attilio and Ilda Antonioni. After a quick time period of changeover, Il Camino opened underneath the Daigneaults’ ownership on Jan. 2, 1971, and has been a city staple given that.

For the last 10 months, the restaurant has endured the worries of COVID-19, and this earlier weekend, the relatives proudly marked 50 a long time in business enterprise.
