Springfield’s longtime Italian restaurant DiGiacinto’s is for sale


A beloved Italian restaurant in Springfield is apparently for sale after 35 years of operation.

After closing during the COVID-19 pandemic and never reopening, DiGiacinto’s Italian restaurant on South Campbell Avenue is now for sale, according to a Facebook post on the restaurant’s page.

DiGiacinto’s was known for its authentic and high quality Italian cuisine. Popular dishes while the restaurant was in operation included Chicken Alfredo, Spaghetti and Meatballs, and Philly Cheese Steak.

Nick Russo, a cousin of the owner, said in a Facebook post on the restaurant’s page last week that the original plan was to reopen DiGiancinto as a scaled-down Italian market, but the owner decided to abandon the idea after a further reflection.

In a separate article, Russo said the best scenario would be to find a buyer who can learn the menu and carry on the tradition of DiGiacinto.
