“Lagomarcino’s is so much more than a longstanding Quad City attraction. It’s an American story of family and tradition that has continued for more than hundred years. Anyone who has sat in one of our handcrafted mahogany booths while sipping on a Green River, or has undertaken the near impossible task of choosing from our selection of candies, knows at least part of the Lagomarcino’s story. Now you know the whole story, along with the love and tradition that goes into everything we do. The Lagomarcino’s story is one that will continue for at least another hundred years!”
