Pleasantly surprised

My husband and I dined at mama Leones and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves We didn't expect it to be so good. We were seated by an unfriendly gentleman who we were happy wasn't our waiter. Sarah, our waitress was so sweet and pleasant. She made us feel so welcomed and appreciated. Throughout the... read more

Everything from pizza to Italian specialties. Large bar area, great electric guitar/piano music; went the first time for a great Greek style

We had a wonderful dining experience. The food was excellent and the service was even better! Since this is the first review I have left for a restaurant in my area, I wanted to note that it is so worthy. The pricing is very affordable and they even take reservations! Can't say enough.

We frequent Mama Leones at least three times per month as the service, ambiance and quality of the dining experience is second to none in the area. From the incredible pizza to the best bolognase I have ever tasted (besides my wifes), each meal is five star. We are close enough to enjoy take out often, and the same quality... More

Went with another couple for Happy Hour with specials on both drinks and dinner. Were pleasantly surprised with their menus. The hot bread was so good. Every one had a different pasta special, while one had the pizza. All our dinners were great, and also come with a salad. It was nice to make reservations for best seating, big rooms... More

Party of 5 adults. We arrived at 9pm and they close at 10pm. They were very welcoming. Hot bread arrived right away. House Chardonnay was nice. I had the stuffed shells which were good. Shells stuffed with seasoned ricotta and covered with marinara with parmesan cheese. Wife had a cheese pizza which was also good. The crust was crisp and... More

We visited during Happy Hour which entitled us to double pours of wine. They also have a varied happy hour menu which we ordered. There was plenty of food to satisfy us. The food was fine; not great, but certainly not bad at all. Our waiter wasn't terribly personable but was attentive enough.

The food here is typical Italian. They have a varied menu and the staff is always friendly. I remember when they were just a small restaurant on the road with a few tables.

Our favorite takeout pizza place in the Venice area for 20 years. Crisp crust, plenty of toppings. Also a good Italian restaurant of you're dining in. Extensive takeout menu.

Mama Leone's is an outstanding restaurant, is a quiet setting for all walks of life. There is a large full bar staffed by warm bartender looking to make you feel at home. Take a loolk around and you will see several folks that call Nokomis home year round. The owner, Chris and his wife are always on hand to service... More
