You can’t have Italian food without trying Licata’s Italian Deli! Located at 15 Moser Road in Pottstown, Licata’s uses the freshest ingredients to bring you the best Italian food you’ve ever had. Our homemade meatballs will rival your Italian grandmother’s (but don’t tell her we said that!).
Owners, David and Donna Licata are proud to offer customers the true taste of authentic Italian cuisine. Owning an Italian Deli has been a dream of David’s for as long as he can remember. He and his father always wanted to open a restaurant. When David met Donna he quickly realized they shared the same dream. With inspiration from Family members, Mario Batali, and Guy Fieri, their passion for cooking, and a helpful nudge from Donna, the idea for Licata’s Italian Deli was born.
When asked what made them want to open Licata’s, besides explaining that this has been a dream of theirs, Dave shared about his passion for cooking. Growing up, he watched his grandmother cook and helped her out, soaking up as much culinary knowledge as he could. Dave has spent many years trying to perfect his grandmother’s sauce and meatballs, and is still on the hunt for her old frying pan. His mother and maternal grandfather were also incredible influences as Dave was learning to cook. Donna shared that cooking with her family has been a large part of her life. Her mother and father shared their love of food with Donna, allowing her to know that she wanted to spend her life sharing her family’s recipes with others. Donna takes special pride in the pork prepared at Licata’s, as it is not only a family recipe, but also her favorite dish to cook.
Dave and Donna are thrilled to see their dream come true with the opening of Licata’s Italian Deli. If you’re in Pottstown, stop by the deli at 15 Moser Road Pottstown, PA.
