Eaten here on many occasions but this time was very disappointed. Carbonara was very dry. The Manager didn't charge for this and took note of our disappointment.

A regular here but always good and fresh. Varied Italian and specials most week plus Pizzas all good and varied. Good service with a smile you won't go wrong.

Always head to Leonardo's every trip. Margaret, our favourite waitress, always gives us a huge welcome and the food is absolutely delicious. Would definitely recommend.

Quality is better than you would expect in this location.we were actually pretty happy. Prices are absolutely fair and staff is very supportive. A bit more grilled and less deep fried seafood would be great but overall certainly a place to come back to. Not anywhere near the beach but definitely worth going there. Their homemade ice cream is somehow... More

We have visited every place in diani in this week holiday and it was not an easy task to find good service/food/ variety/ place. This one was great. Nice wine, finish and fantastic ice cream. Not crowded and a very kind waitress attended us. Fast and cheerful!

My friends and I went to Leonardo's for an afternoon drink. When my drink came, I didn't see the cockroach inside. I sipped 'something', only to realize that it was a cockroach upon spitting. I complained to the waiter and the barman who said they could do nothing because the manager was not there. No apology was given. Next time... More

Nice restaurant, with a good variety of Italian cuisine. Pizzas were great and my friend had the grilled red snapper which he enjoyed. Indoors restaurant but feels airy as there are no windows, giving it an outdoorsy feel Service is efficient and friendly Great location just on the Diani road
