The service was great. The pizza was so delicious. We ordered the Big Leo med pizza and the salad bar for myself, my husband and grandson. We were stuffed and still had 3 slices to take home. We ordered the lasagna for my mother-in-law and apparently it was awesome. She normally eats a little bit but Today she ate it... More

The best deep dish in Gainesville. True Chicago style pizza! The garlic rolls are SCRUMPTIOUS! Fredo gives great service- always a smile and sense of humor. We love this place!

Atmosphere: Looks like a building from the 70's, which is a good thing. Lots of wood, stained glass, and plants decorate the inside. The bathrooms need some renovation, but they are relatively clean. It is really homey. Staff: Everyone is really friendly. You seat yourself, but the staff regularly checks the tables to see if there is anyone new. The... More

Stopped in around 5pm in hopes of getting the lunch special. Was told that the lunch special consisting of a drink, slice of pizza and salad bar was avaliable anytime. We were so happy to get our usual. Always enjoy dinning at the Millhopper location. Never been dissapointed with atmosphere, service or product. Great place to dine.

I have been here several times. But now only get back once a year. Went with several old work friends. The Big Leo pizza was good but didn't have as many toppings as I remember. The server was very good. The beer was cold, but being a local chain you think they would carry some local Gainesville brewed beers.

This is a review of the Leonardo's pizza of Millhopper. As a teenager in 1979, I worked at a Chicago area Pizza Hut when they introduced the pan pizza. Stepping into Leonardo's was like stepping into a time warp. I was looking for the DeLorean with the flux capacitor parked outside. The decor doesn't look like it has changed since... More

Quite simply the big leo is the best pizza I have ever found anywhere. The garlic knots are also the best I have found in any location. The salad bar has a nice selection and is always fresh and tasty. The wait staff is always very attentive and friendly. The lasagna is also very good. A very old school pizza... More

We have been in Florida for several weeks now and have been craving a good pizza. However, to date have not been able to find a local pizzeria that made a pie similar to what we were accustomed to up North. By recommendation we sought out Leonardi's and was not disappointed. Ordered a large 5 topping Sampler Special (pepperoni, sausage,... More

Even though we are many years removed from college, we visited this pizza joint located near the University of Florida campus while in town visiting our daughter. It is dimly lit, noisy, with a bunch of uncomfortable wooden chairs and probably the best deep dish pizza I've ever had. The crust was crispy and the toppings sliced perfectly and the... More

I'm normally a NY style kinda guy but occasionally I like to switch it up. This is where I go when I want that thick crusted fix. This is not cheap pizza but the portions are generous. I can get two slices and be satiated (not full, but I eat a lot). They also have pretty good specials if you... More
