This restaurant should be higher rated. The food was excellent, my husband and I both had fish. And my husbands martini with Gorgonzola olives was sublime. I had TWO Floridian drinks which were lip smackin' good. Great food at a great price. What more can you ask for?

Recently visited the restaurant during a Sunday Brunch. Food was good with a surprising variety. our table shared a pitcher of mimosas which was refreshing as well as the fruit punch served by the restaurant. The chef later came out to greet his guests which was a nice touch. Thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience. The French Toast is to die... More

I've eaten dinner here several times for convenience. I usually haven't had a wait for a table. Waiting for service is a different matter.

This a locally-owned favorite of mine. The interior could use updating but that's part of its charm. NIce front patio. A good variety on the menu, pasta dishes, fish, pizza, but I always get the surprisingly good surf and turf (petite filet and shrimp or scallops). Live music on certain nights, always of a good caliber. I just tried the... More

One of my very favorite restaurants anywhere. Leonardo's 706 is a great place to go with friends, for a business meeting or a class reunion. Everyone that I have referred there over the years always has great things to say about the food and the service. They have the best ceaser salad I've ever eaten and trust me I've tried... More

After a pretty long wait for a table, we then waited about 10 to 15 minutes while our server kept telling us he would be with us shortly. No water, no nothing. The food was O.K. Pretty average. We all had pasta dishes. Two of us had pasta with seafood and the other had some kind of sausage. They charge... More

The dinners are always excellent. And we particularly love to go and listen to live music when Marty Liquori's band is playing.

You'll not find a better steak In Gainesville nor a better atmosphere. The art on the walls make for a very interesting visit.

Leonardo's 706 has the best Chicago style pizza in town. It's thick crust and wonderful sauces and cheeses are absolutely delicious.
