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

The title doesn't say it all. We dine out a lot, and we were really impressed by this fine dining establishment. I ordered the Bouillabaisse, my wife ordered the Ceasar salad, which she rated absolutely excellent. The dish served me was not traditional bouillabaisse, but...More

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

Chicken with Gorgonzola sauce sounds great-until it's drowning in it. Scallops over coconut jasmine rice sounds great-until rice is drowned in Asian sauce. Btw if you don't like burned, errr, charred asparagus, you should ask for it steamed. Josh gave great service.

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.
