An old stand by- great pizza

One person in our party and been here several times and raved about it! She was spot on! We had a cheese pizza that was just simple and delicious! The cheese was terrific! The pie was a generous 18" As an upstate NYer who knows pizza at its best, I say give Leonardos a try, you wont be disappointed... read more

We ate here for lunch and I enjoyed the variety of pizza available by the slice and option for other Italian food like calzones etc. This is a walk up and order yourself. The drinks are given to you and they deliver the food to your table. It is a classic college town dive atmosphere. Our table was barly holding... More

This is a very good pizza. Baked in open oven. Lots of choices on the menu or customize it. They have pizzas cooked and ready to go by the slice. Other pies on the menu as well. Prices arn't bad either. I would recommend this place highly! I know i will be back.

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.
