Frequented this deli back in the late 60's/early 70's when I went to nearby Bay Shore High School. Yes, the place needs a good cleaning, but if you can see beyond that, they make the BEST sandwiches you will ever put in your mouth! The place is an icon. My fellow alumni agree....no place else comes close!

If you eat here you are a disgusting animal. The last time I walked in there was a cat in the deli. Gross, disgusting, horror show. I can't believe I see anything over a one rating

If you went to BSHS you know Leggio's. Way back in the day Mr. Leggio would have a line out the door for lunch every day. He would sell you half a hero and would always remember what you liked. I had the privilege to go back the other day. All of us are a little older but he still... More

Ok...this place has been around forever!!! My husband graduated from Bay Shore HS in 1962 and it was around then. Two great things about this place....the hero's and the great entertainment from Louis and Joe!

Hard to find unless u know the area, got to excuse the antiquated exterior and interior of leggios, but that's part of the leggios legacy. Been going there for my Italian heros since 1999, forget about subway or blimpies, there a little slow making those heroes, but well worth the wait!

This is by far the best place for a hero. The Italian with sweet pepper is absolutly amazing. Poor Joe is geeting old and waiting for a sandwich is taking way too long buts its worth it. For the last 10 years Joe would ask how are my wife and kids. I gave up tellIng him I have no wife... More

Leggios Deli is a Bay Shore Classic. What wonderful memories and what a kind and caring individual is Joe. He remembered me from 50 years ago, “is your uncle still a motorcycle cop?’ Your cousin Billy still playing the guitar?” Amazing, he must be pushing close to 80 but he is still sharp as a tack! Don't let the appearance... More
