Happened to walk past it on return from train station and recognised it from a review I had seen on TripAdvisor returned that evening and were pleasantly surprised food was cheap and cheerful but the meat was amazing and salad excellent.

Meat was tough, starters were average to poor. However, service was great, sides were lovely and reasonably priced. It's a pity they don't offer a cut of fillet, or maybe there wasn't any there the night we were in?

Good quality meat chosen from over the counter as in an authentic braceria, huge amount of antipasti, fair price in a lovely place. Don't doubt it, go for it.

We cycled from our villa 2km away, locked our bikes in the park and walked into Leo's Braceria to gaze on the array of meat that is on offer. Huge slabs of t-bone, veal and burgers plus local specialities of cheese wrapped in pork. We picked a selection and walked back to the park to await the meat feast and... More

A butcher shop with a wood fired grill - you select what you want from the case and they cook it up for you. Dining is outside in the park across he street. Very simple concept but done every well. The meat is of good quality and the preparation is flawless. Great for carnivores. Not so much if meat is... More

We ate there 2 times with my boyfriend during our stay in Polignano and we were very very satisfied with the quality of the meat! It's rare to eat such a good one, and it's also good that we could choose our pieces. We would recommend this restaurant for everybody.

A few minutes walk from the old town arch brings you to Leo's. You order your meat in the butchers then sit down outside in the restaurant to eat etc. Good choice, nice wines and beers. All meat is excellent quality and taste. Nice informal relaxed dining & super cheap prices

This very welcoming restaurant is a butchers shop as well. You choose your meat and then it's cooked for you. The wife's eyes being greedier than her tummy as usual, she chose a 1500g T-bone for us. Very enjoyable meal, though stuffed. And an excellent bottle of wine as well.

Visited Leo's last night while on holiday after reading good reviews. It certainly didn't disappoint. It is a meat lovers paradise. When we arrived, we were directed in to the butchers, where a lovely English speaking waitress helped us to choose our meat and explained the dishes. She translated for us from the butchers recommendations too. We then went to... More
