Hands down best pizza in Gainesville. They offer pizza by the slice new york style. Cant go wrong with a slice a cheese. But if you want to try something different and delicious try their portobello slice.

We've eaten here a few times now when we're in town. Good slices, decent salad, chewy rolls. I think we got 2 free rolls each time, but I don't know why. Parking is in back and tough, as it seems to be everywhere in Gainesville. The 1st time we ate here on this trip, we got our slices right away,... More

Atmosphere is different busy/loud and busy. It's hectic but as soon as you walk in you order. Bathroom is in back on side kind of like a old gas station restroom. But the pizzas where yummylicious and my 5 yr old is so picky he ate his whole slice of pizza and the first thing he asks as we are... More

The pizza is also only half the story.. their rolls are freshly made and cooked through out the day! You have... More

Leonardo's is great for a slice or an entire pie. They stay busy so sometimes there is a line, but it is worth it.

Read until the end, please We didn't realize there was 2 parts to this restaurant until after we had ordered on the side that only had a very limited menu. Real picnic tables and food served on trays. Pizza slices were large and served only on napkins. Got a salad served in a too small bowl and 2 drinks. There... More

We were staying across the street at the Holiday Inn since it was so close, we decided to try it, despite some of the negative reviews. Ya, the staff had tattoos and piercings, big deal...and that's coming from someone pushing 60. It's a collage town...The service was good, The pizza slices were huge! Maybe not the best pizza I've had,... More
