One of DiTondo’s popular dishes is the Sausage Special. It’s an Italian sausage pattie on a hard roll and topped with capicola, hot banana peppers and provolone.

Three generations of ownership will end when DiTondo’s proprietors find a buyer.

The restaurant, at 370 Seneca St., has been listed for sale. The entire operation, from real estate to kitchen equipment, can be yours for $825,000.

Its fans, hungry for sausage sandwiches, stuffed peppers and spaghetti parm, will say a prayer for continuity.

Three generations of one family have been the backbone of the kitchens since Sebastino DiTondo moved his tavern from down the street to its current spot, in 1904.

His son Amedeo took over, with help from his family. In 1985 his daughter Rose Mary and her husband Al Rohloff bought the tavern, and have been running it since.

Rohloff said he plans to continue running the place until a buyer is found.
