There’s nothing quite like enjoying a traditional Italian dinner in the family atmosphere of The Original Ledo Restaurant. Since it opened in 1955, Terps, locals of College Park, and the surrounding community have grown up on the extensive menu of classic dishes for decades. With all of its meals prepared from scratch right there in the kitchen, this restaurant is much more than just your local pizza place. Delicacies such as calzones, lasagne, and eggplant parmigiana made to order from fresh, locally-sourced ingredients make it hard to resist ordering an extra dish to take home.
Famous for its signature rectangular flatbread pizza crusts, Ledo Restaurant offers a full selection of specialty pizzas, from classics like Hawaiian and triple-meat to slightly more adventurous taco-style and seafood-topped pies.
Of course, if you’re not in the mood for pizza, you can never go wrong with the club sandwich, owner Tommy’s absolute favorite item on the menu.
While continuing to uphold its comfortable, family-style ownership and atmosphere, the restaurant offers an impressive amount of space that welcomes large parties, with multiple dining areas and a full bar. It has proudly partnered with the university for many occasions, and continues to satisfy families and visitors throughout College Park. If you’re craving Italian food on your next family outing, this restaurant won’t disappoint!
