The pizza is ok, and some salads are average. I just go because it's near UF and it's not expensive. The service is not too good.

Fabulous food and a big variety of wine on the menu. I had salmon on spinach pasta with capers in a lemon and white wine sauce. The desserts are delicious.

It was late, we were tired but still wanted to spend time together. Leonardo's was the perfect stop, with excellent pizza, Caesar salad and, of course, the requisite glass of wine. My pal and I spent less than $20 for two huge and delicious slices,...More

I love this place because they donate the slices from lunch to the homeless. By the slice at lunch, whole pies at dinner.

Good food, nicely presented and delicious. Taking our college student grandson out to dinner and it was great. Great service and we were not there too long (as he had work to do)

My college aged kids and I went to dinner here on a Thursday night, jazz night. The restaurant has a jazz room which has a small bar and pleasant atmosphere. The jazz group, which I understand is the regular group, was terrific. Interestingly, even though...More

No dress code but since it is a nice place no flip flops. They do take reservations and it is a good idea especially on the weekends or when something is going on with the Gators football team.

They have a very well stocked full bar and a nice selection of wine. Specify what you want and you will get it. The servers are generally well versed on the wines.
