As we were staying in the Venice area, we chose to meet up with some friends who live at Turtle Beach at Mama Leone's on US 41, near Nokomis. It was our second visit there (the first being some years ago) and we were quite looking forward to it, though we remembered that it was not a cheap place to... More

We like to go here when we're in the area. The food is good and we've always had a good experience with the wait staff. They also have a large selection of wine too.

Heard that Mama Leone's was very good. We have been wanting to give it a try so we stopped in for dinner July 15. It was ok but we won't be going back any time soon if at all. There are just too many other good restaurants. I had a chicken dish, the chicken was all dried out and tough.... More

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

Yes! We heard good reviews, so we decided to try something other than seafood. And we were glad we did. The food was great! Our server was a delight. My husband and I split an eggplant parmesan dinner and a small pizza. Both were very good. was very congenial and shared some beach spots for us to visit.

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
