About Us

Since 1905 Italy hasn’t been the same!

It all started with a very special spumoni created and lovingly produced by Lezza Spumoni & Desserts, Inc. The origin of this spumoni is Naples, Italy and the recipe came to Chicago’s West Side with Salvatore Lezza in 1905. The recipe has remained with the family for over 100 years!

Salvatore handed the secret of genuine spumoni down to his son Victor and today Lezza Spumoni & Desserts, Inc. is under the careful care of Ed Lezza Sr. (3rd generation) and nephew Louis (4th generation) with a younger generation coming up in the business. The company continues to walk in the footsteps of their Grandfather and Great Grandfather keeping the flavors of Italy alive and flourishing.

The secret of spumoni wasn’t the only masterpiece passed down through the generations. Hundreds of recipes have been preserved and perfected, keeping the Lezza tradition alive.
