It's a classic, original confectionery and lunch counter place that has survived in its little time bubble through some miracle of temporal physics. The handmade chocolates are divine—you cannot go wrong with any of them. They look pricey, and they are a bit, but the quality of freshly made truffles and nut clusters is bar none, among the best.

This business has been in the same family for decades, now in the third or fourth generation. The candy is handmade and is incredible! I highly recommend the toffee, salted caramels, turtles, and truffles. Definitely a landmark business in Moline. I've also visited the Davenport location.

Once you get past the gauntlet of the candy cases, you find yourself having to choose between the red swivel stools at the fountain counter and the dark wood of a booth. Yep, either way you choose, you have taken a step back in time and the worries of the world fall away as you consider which sundae or float... More

Went here with a friend of mine, it reminded me of the ice cream parlors from the 1950's and it looked just like that. We sat in the back to staff away from the hot weather. They had fudge, sudaes, shakes, and more. Did I mention that they had fudge?... They make a lot of their own things there so... More

THE place for chocolates!!!! You'll find no finer chocolates or variety anywhere than this family owned business of many, many, years. Before you indulge in your favorite chocolate delight, enjoy their soups and sandwiches too!

took the family for a snack after lunch, it really brought back memories of growing up and visiting the local soda fountains. they were having a special event to meet the 'Grinch' and the staff was dressed up as being 'Who ville", it was great. Loved the homemade ice creams and candies.

Description
Lagomarcino's is a place steeped in family tradition. Sometimes, during the busy lunch hour as you're sitting in one of the gorgeous, handcrafted mahogany booths, you will start to feel a nostalgic calm, a satisfying wistfulness. You will begin to notice pleasant memories drifting quietly past your table, sweet memories smelling faintly of chocolate.
