    Leonardo’s Italian Bakery & Da Vinci’s Brick Oven Pizzeria – A true work of art in home-baked & traditional Italian flavors

    by Tianna G. Hansen

    Leonardo’s Italian Bakery has been known throughout the Delaware Valley since 1997 for their specialty – hand molded Italian breads baked and served in many of their local Italian restaurants.

    “Our passion is bringing you ‘old world traditional’ Italian favorites just like your grandma used to make,” said the owner, Angelo Affatato.

    “At Leonardo’s Italian Bakery/Deli and Da Vinci’s Pizza, we pride ourselves on using traditional old world recipes, using on the freshest and finest ingredients and preparing everything homemade.”

    Their traditional artisan bread is home-baked on the premises with a hard crust and made from scratch.

    “Each piece of bread we bake is hand-rolled and hand-molded.”

    They are known for wholesaling their breads out to 100 restaurants and stores.

    At their bakery/deli, you’ll find authentic Italian cakes, pastries, and so much more.

    Italian cannoli filled with ricotta cheese, tiramisu, Italian amaretti, typical Italian holiday pastries, strudel, cookies and biscotti, Italian merengues, pizzelles of different flavors, lobster tails filled with cream and jelly and so much more.

    “Our wide variety of imported and domestic cheeses and meats made with our breads make the finest sandwiches and party trays you’ve ever tasted.”

    Their large selection of meats and cheeses include prosciutto, soppressata, salami, pancetta, beef bologna; home-made turkey, roast beef and roast pork in different flavors; Parmigiano reggiano, Asiago of different ages, and countless others.

    Leonardo’s bakery began in Philadelphia and moved to Feasterville in 2007.

    When they came to Feasterville, the traditional bakery expanded with Da Vinci’s Brick Oven Pizzeria.

    Located at 183 Bustleton Pike, Feasterville-Trevose, this family-run bakery and pizzeria combination is one you won’t find elsewhere, and you certainly won’t find a better taste.

    “Our pizza is just like our breads – home-baked and hand-tossed with a thin crust.”

    Not only do they have famous tomato pies to offer, but also they have other popular specialties including Margherita pizza with fresh mozzarella and basil, and white pizza with spinach, garlic and ricotta.

    Their delicious delicacies don’t end there – you’ll want to try their Italian hot roast sandwiches made with pork and beef and sharp provolone on their famous homemade rolls.

    Leonardo’s Italian Bakery & Da Vinci’s Pizza also offers corporate and private event catering with pizzas, sandwich trays, salads, platters, pastries and cookie trays.

    Don’t forget to order your holiday party trays to impress your family this season with the very best.

    You won’t find flavor like it elsewhere!

    Come out and enjoy their seating area when the weather is nice.

    “This is my livelihood,” said Angelo. “I’m here seven days a week making sure everything is running correctly.”

    His partner comes straight from Italy and you’ll find his children hand-making pizzas and breads in the bakery and pizzeria.
