Pasquilina (Lena) and Guiseppe (Joe) Lonero purchased Pizzarama, a pizza and grinder shop, in 1982. When they opened the restaurant they decided to keep the original name and their children, Lena and Sal, working by their sides.

Over the years, the business grew and the family incorporated their Italian heritage and traditional family recipes into the menu. The expanded menu includes a wide selection of appetizers, salads and Italian entrees, as well as the traditional pizza and grinders.

As the menu expanded, the patronage increased and the family decided it was time to rename the restaurant, remodel and add a banquet facility to better serve their customers. The name was changed to Lena's Restaurant and Pizza in 1992. The restaurant was named in honor of the matriarch of the family, Lena Lonero, whom customers and staff still call "Mama Lena".

Today Lena's Restaurant is run by their son, Sal Lonero. The restaurant is known for it's great menu selection, delicious Italian food and warm and inviting atmosphere that create an enjoyable dining experience. Lena's would like to "Thank" all of our existing customers and welcome the opportunity to serve new customers.

Lena's would like to have you be part of of our family!
