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

This is the BEST PIZZA I have ever eaten in my life. I visit Leos about once a week and that's only because I live on the other side of town! I visit with my girlfriend regularly and family... 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

Leonardo's has the best pizza and salad's we have eaten here several times on our way through Gainsville fl. It is a typical college hangout type of place the bathroom is outside in the back and is very outdated and had mops on the ground by it. The staff were not very friendly but the food was very good. My... More

Good Pizza place. I travel on business and stop here several times per year. It's great because you can order by slice and they have a wide variety of choices and they are actually on display for you to see. This helps in your decision making. You order at counter, then sit at table and wait for your "call". Decor... More

Leonardo's is definitely a college town restaurant. Scary bathrooms, tattooed & pierced employees, crowded as heck on a game day. But there is no other place in Gainesville I recommend more for a filling meal (and I'm typically not a pizza fan!) One slice will satisfy my 13 year old son, and a calzone will stuff my hubby. Looking for... More

I went here for lunch at a debate thing, and I was pleased. The pizza came out hot and quickly. It was very good food! Would recommend!

The pizza was ok. It is your typical college campus pizza; cheap and filling. My only complaints were that the place is a little dirty, although they were busy, and the staff was kind of rude. Might return for a late night snack but would not go out of my way.
