We went to Leonardo's 706 with friends to celebrate a birthday. The service was very good and was only surpassed by the food. We had an artichoke pizza as the appetizer and each order a different pasta dish. All were unbelievably great. The perfect combination of says, pasta and spice. Leonardo's also had a well rounded wine list. Finished our... More

Delicious homemade meal! Our server was Tatiana, excellent service. To begin with, the garlic rolls were warm,freshly made right out of the oven warm and fresh. We had mussels, New York Pizza, and a Chicken Mona...just perfect!

This Gainesville restaurant has been around forever ( in restaurant years). There is a nice outdoor seating area as well as lots of indoor booths. My favorite foods are the big Leo pizza and any of the huge salads. Split one with a friend. Most nights there is live music in the next room- jazz or funky bluegrass by great... More

Went there for graduation lunch. We brought a little cake to share after lunch. Manager went ballistic. Told us they were short of plates! (We used 6) She charged us $16 "cakeage fee". And then charged an 18% gratuity on top of that! Mediocre food. We will never go back.

We went to Leonardo's 706 with a group for a graduation celebration today. We each paid for a full meal and drinks, and afterwards, we shared a cake we brought with us to celebrate the grads. We were approached by a waitress, who had been difficult to locate up to that point, to chastise us for using extra buffet plates... More

706 has by far my most favorite chocolate desserts in Gainesville! Chocolate Expresso Torte is #1 but now is only available by "call ahead" ordering. I often order the whole torte for a special occasion. Chocolate Mousse Pie is outstanding as is the Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie. Their pizzas, salads, and fish dishes are also great!

We have eaten here many times and more recently began hosting client dinners for groups of 10-18. Whether dining just the two of us, or entertaining a group, Leonardo's is consistently great!

706 has been around Gainesville longer that us. There may be better in town but not on a consistent basis. For so many years the food here has never disappointed. It is our favorite for sure and when we try to decide to eat out 706 is always on thee list. If I had a beef with 706 it would... More
