I have been eating here for a long long time. It is always great. The service is good and the food is always delicious. Brunch is big fun and outrageously bountiful. Steve or Mark are usually circling with trays of extra goodies which add to...More

I had the asparagus and artichoke California pizza and it was excellent. The crust tastes fresh, crispy, and is just the right thickness. The pizza was light, but satisfying, and a unique taste experience. Combined with a local draft beer, coffee, and dessert, this was...More

I enjoy Sunday brunch and have tried many places in town. Was a refreshing change from norm with owner and servers offering small muffins and juice, polite/enthusiastic service and great food. Also appreciate the farm to fork restaurant orientation.

Great place for atmosphere. They have live music on Mondays. Food and drinks are expensive, but I didn't find it worth the price. (I ordered pizza, and it was just OK.) The Island martini is really yummy though! Cheesecake here is also just OK....nice place...More

We went to Leonardo's 706 with friends to celebrate a birthday. The service was very good and was only surpassed by the food. We had an artichoke pizza as the appetizer and each order a different pasta dish. All were unbelievably great. The perfect combination...More

Delicious homemade meal! Our server was Tatiana, excellent service. To begin with, the garlic rolls were warm,freshly made right out of the oven warm and fresh. We had mussels, New York Pizza, and a Chicken Mona...just perfect!

Response from Carolyn G | Reviewed this property |
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.
