I had eggplant parm which is outstanding ,my wife got her regular Fruitte de Mar salad (fantastic) and we split fried... More

The feta cheese on the pizza had the consistency of rubber. The pizza was way too salty to eat. It was extremely too greasy. We had to use a napkin to soak it up. I would not recommend the Greek Pizza. Service was good.

Had heard this Italian restaurant was quite good but our dinner left a poor impression. Firstly, the dishes we ordered were pretty mediocre. My husband and I both had veal dishes and they were not tender but a bit chewy. The dinner salads were fine but the waiter insisted the Italian dressing was homemade and frankly, it looked and tasted... More

Beautiful building and smells wonderful... Garlic! We felt young in our 50's compare to other diners but it was cozy. Alfredo was delicious and dessert even better

A great place to enjoy an authentic Itallian meal in Venice Florida. We have visited Mama Leone's on many occasions over the last 5 Years have never been disapointed. The Service is great and Meals are all prepared to authentic Itial recipes. And I have to metion the "Resident" Musician who is absolutly brilliant, playing piano, guitar and other instruments...

Large place with a big menu. Nice, really! It just isn't too authentic Italian - American Italian I'd call it. OK, just not great.

My father had told me for quite awhile that this was one of the best Italian places to eat...and we finally went there...we actually, we've now been there many, many times, so figured I'd write a review. I've never been disappointed with the food. Always fresh and plentiful. You will have left overs to take home with you. Pasta is... More

Dined there this evening. We were greeted and seated immediately. Beautiful decor and elegant atmosphere. Our server, Clayton, provided exemplary service which further enhanced our visit. The eggplant parmesan and lasagna were excellent and the sauce wonderful. Garlic bread was the best. It was a perfect dining experience, we will return soon

We have dined at Mama Leone's several times and have always found the food and service to be better than a number of other Italian restaurants in the area. On this visit we were a group of six, six different main courses and all to everyones enjoyment. Veal, fish, meat and pasta dishes. All delivered to the table at the... More
