Located on North Main Street in Evansville is DiLegge's Restaurant.  DiLegge's is well known in the Evansville area for serving delicious Italian cuisine.  DiLegge's has always been a popular place to dine in Evansville because their Italian dishes are made from generations of family recipes, and let me tell you, their food is certainly delicious! We had our rehearsal dinner at DiLegge's because their baked ziti and house salad dressing is my all-time favorite.


Below is a photo from our rehearsal dinner with our best friends and Maid of Honor and Best Man!


So I was super bummed when DiLegge's announced they were shutting their doors in March of 2022. Now they are still available for catering, which you can find more about on their Facebook page.


You Can Own DiLegge's

Evansville 411 recently shared an interesting update, that DiLegge's is back on the market and you can own this established Italian restaurant.  It's listed for $750,000 which honestly is worth it for the marinara and alfredo recipes in my personal opinion.   According to the listing through CREXI, this is a turnkey opportunity meaning you can literally step right into owning DiLegge's.  I asked my husband if we could and he said no, so maybe my loss is your gain!
