I guess you could call me a regular at Leonardo's Pizza. My most recent visit was this week to meet friends for dinner. We ordered a Big Leo pizza and had among us, wine and beer. The pizza was custom made for us, the service attentive and the drinks delicious and cold. What more could you ask for? Leonardo's Pizza... More

With all of franchise meals available in Gainesville this is a fresh local experience. No multi million dollar marketing firm needed to draw in people who like good food. Try it.

When we first walked in and saw the torn up, stained carpeting and 70's décor, my friends wanted to turn away. But, there was a good crowd there and we asked some patrons if we should stay. Yes! was their answer. We're glad we did. The server quickly accommodated our big group, we were served quickly and with a smile,... More

Every time we go here we always get the garlic knots (the whole wheat ones are awesome). Their Chicago style deep dish pizzas are awesome thick crust and lots of cheese! Save some of the garlic knot dipping sauce and use the crust of your pizza!

We went the other day, which was a very cold day in Florida. The main dining area was very chilly -- 58 according to the thermostat. When we inquired, they said they don't have heat! Brrrr! We kept our jackets on. When the wrong pizza come out, we just left since we could not take waiting in the cold for... More

The pizza and fresh buns were amazing! Wish there were more reasonably priced drink choices for the kids since mine don't drink soda.

If you like pan pizza, the Big Leo is a must have. It's a pizza joint atmosphere so don't expect too much, but the pizza more than makes up for it!

It is your typical pizza joint. A lot of people complain about its service, but at the end of the day, that's not what gets people to Leo's. It has great pizza, bread rolls, and pasta, their salads are also good if you want a lighter option. Overall, it is definitely a great lunch choice.

I've been a Leonardo's fan since 1974. Great pizza, reasonably priced for the value. It's a distinctive flavor that keeps you coming back for more. Big Leo is the best!
