Great pizza....good location

Was told I must try this place, and it was worth the try. Great selections- daily slice specials and wonderful garlic sauce for dipping.

This is an old favorite, with a convenient location in the NW part of Gainesville. They have a good formula, and produce tasty pizzas. Nice salad bar.

This is one of those local places that might not look like much from the outside, but the food is incredible. If you like true Chicago-style deep dish pizza, this is the place. It takes a while for a deep dish pizza to cook, but if you are rushed for time, you can call ahead. Their garlic rolls are to... More

We have eaten here, gotten takeout, had pizza, calzones, manicotti, chicken parm... Never a bad dish, always on time (allow a 20-minute call-ahead for takeout), always friendly people. It's small and dark, but comfortable. They always play Classic Rock, which adds a lot to the ambiance. Lots of things change in Gainesville; I am so glad Leonardo's is not one... More

After the sniper movie felt like a pizza so I went for the first time! Mentioned to my server that it was my first time here and she brought me a complimentary order of what she described as their famous garlic rolls! They were great! A half inch of garlic butter in the bottom of the basket for dipping! Since... More

Our family came by for lunch. Oh. My. Goodness. It was delicious. The garlic rolls were sublime and swimming in garlic butter that we all enjoyed dipping our pizza crusts into. We each ordered slices, which was great, since everyone could get our favorites. I had a slice of the Big Leo and of the veggie. Both were delicious with... More

Had the disappointment of stopping in here last week. I wanted to support a local place, but what an incredible disappointment. The tacky booths, signs that say seat yourself then playing the waiting game for a server to spot a new arrival, the air of despair that permeates the server's attitude and tone, and the completely disappointing food. Dry, over-cooked,... More

We've been eating at this location for over 30 years. We like the daily lunch specials which include a slice of pizza, salad bar, and a drink. The lunch special price is about $8 plus tax and tip. Each day they have different slices available for lunch and it's posted in the menu. The BIG Leo is the best and... More

Although Leonardo's is small and dark, you won't be sorry for eating here. The deep dish pizza was delicious, although don't order too much. I was only able to eat one and a half pieces. We also ordered the garlic knots, which are dripping in butter, oil and garlic, but so good. The waitress was excellent and very attentive. We... More
