I had the asparagus and artichoke California pizza and it was excellent. The crust tastes fresh, crispy, and is just the right thickness. The pizza was light, but satisfying, and a unique taste experience. Combined with a local draft beer, coffee, and dessert, this was an inexpensive, fresh, and delicious meal!

I had the pasta with gorgonzola which was very good. My daughter had the seafood pasta which was terrific as well. The pesto pizza was good. And of course, the rolls are a-m-a-z-i-n-g!. Had the chocolate cake for dessert with ice cream and that topped a wonderful meal! Would recommend this restaurant.

I enjoy Sunday brunch and have tried many places in town. Was a refreshing change from norm with owner and servers offering small muffins and juice, polite/enthusiastic service and great food. Also appreciate the farm to fork restaurant orientation.

Great place for atmosphere. They have live music on Mondays. Food and drinks are expensive, but I didn't find it worth the price. (I ordered pizza, and it was just OK.) The Island martini is really yummy though! Cheesecake here is also just OK....nice place to try, but probably not going back.

While in Gainesville for an overnight stay, we looked for a place to have dinner. A neighbor of ours recommended Leonardo's. It turns out that there are two of them in Gainesville, so we arbitrarily selected this one ("706"). It was an excellent choice! Very nice intimate decor. Our server, John, was attentive and knowledgable. Between the two of us... More

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
