La Margherita is a family owned and operated Italian restaurant located in Medford on Station Road. Our restaurant has been a staple in the Medford community for many years and continues to lure in Long Islanders in search of a delicious Italian meals along with great service.
Owner Giuseppe Illiano has been in the business for over 40 years. He came to America “from the other side” (Italy) when he was 17 years old and was brought up working in a pizzeria.
He attended the Culinary School of Italy for just four months before coming to the United States and in 1982 he opened his first restaurant Tony's Pizza, also Located in Medford. Giuseppe has four sons, all of who are very much involved in the family business.
The alluring smell from the wood burning brick oven can be sensed from the parking lot and will lead you right inside. The pizzeria is immediately to your left upon entering and to the right you’ll find the charming, dimly lit dining room.
Our brick oven pizza’s at La Margherita are made with fresh, hand pulled mozzarella cheese and a plum tomato sauce, something you do not see much in pizzerias anymore.
The La Margherita Pizza is the pie we are most famous for. It’s a genuine pizza pie with a simple, admirable presentation and a nice crunchy crust compliments of the wood burning oven.
Few people know, but the pizza pie actually cooks in just minutes from the direct fire of the oven and it’s an extremely light pizza because it’s made with plum tomato sauce, not your average pizza sauce. We look forward to serving you.
