  1. Nick is the best , always takes care of his loyal customers and personally he takes care of us veteran cocacola guys, throw u a slice sometimes for nothing while u wait , thats how the guy is and frankly he should have gotten this award along time ago !!!! Now i think ill head down there for the beat meatball sub around

  2. Nick and Leone’s are Somerville institutions! No better place on earth for a good sandwich (or Italian dish) at very reasonable prices.

  3. Love the pizza, but these days I make sure I bring a loaded .357 whenever I go back to Somerville. My hometown!!

  4. Still the only place that you can get a REAL meatball sub. Moved out of Somerville many years ago, but when I’m there, I have to so to Leone’s to get my meatball sub. Back in the day we would get sauce subs for 20 cents and go the the drive-in. Great memories. Happy 60th birthday!!!!!

  5. come from dracut just for the italian and meatball subs. they dont make them like that around here
