Pleasant restaurant and food is abundant. Everyone enjoyed their meals, but there is more than you can eat. When you are finished it looks like you have hardly made a dent in the meal. I prefer to eat smaller portions and don't want a pile of leftover food, especially if I'm just travelling thru the area.

First I am usually pretty hard to impress as I hold a BS in Hospitality from FIU although I left that industry years ago. We rarely go south of Osprey as Sarasota / Manatee has so many places to dine. We fell across this place while driving back from a odd shopping trip. Had one of the best lunches ever!!... More

Traveling through the area quite late on a Saturday evening and with a taste for Italian, decided to give it a try... I'm so glad I found this spot! The Eggplant Parmesan was delectable! Tender and lightly breaded, not greasy at all and served over perfectly al dente pasta (I requested penne). The sauce tasted fresh, robust and flavorful. The... More

We've been driving past this place for several years, always observing plenty of cars in the parking lot at the dinner hour, so we decided to give it a try. Approaching the front door, there is a large take out window. How weird is that? Something doesn't feel quite right but we were committed. So we walked through the front... More

I had a fondness for the original Mama Leone's on 8th Avenue, around the corner from Times Square in New York City. The place was great for atmosphere with the opera singing staff and fairly decent Italian food. I took many a girlfriend there, where I often remarked - "Food's O.K. as you can't ruin pasta with a decent sauce,... More

We have visited Mama Leone's restaurant on many occasions and have ALWAYS had great food, great service, and enjoyed the ambiance. The Menu is very extensive and there is something on there for everyone. I have tried many of the Meals and have never had any problems at all. Service is always courteous and usually very attentive, but when they... More

I had chicken parm and it was good. We had a group of 8 and were in a nice room to ourselves. It was nice and our server was very good. There was music being played in another room which was nice.

Went with a group of 10. Everyone not only enjoyed their meal but had a very positive comment about it. The waitress was patient and attentive, went out of her way to please everyone.

We live so close but seldom dine here as we usually enjoy their take-out pizza. Dinner with friends last night brought us here and we were shown to our preferred table in the lounge. There was a pianist with easy listening music. Sara was our competent server. We had a leisurely dinner and as we left, we all said how... More
