Always a good meal and good value

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... read more

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

This restaurant was recommend by some locals. Walking into this place, I thought it was going to be very expensive! However, I found their prices to be reasonable. We just wanted pizza, and it was one of the best pizzas I have had in quite a while! Loved the atmosphere and service. Defiantly going back the next time we visit!

My wife found a bug in her salad. She felt she should tell management. They responded," it's FL and bugs are everywhere". We are in our 60s lived on both coasts eat out all the time never had bugs in our food.

The décor is great, they greet you with a smile and seat you in a timely manor. We were promptly attended to our waitress asked for our drink order, (that's important to me, I like to relax and read the menu with a drink). We were asked what dressing we wanted on our salads and we both asked for Caesar... More

As a native Chicagoan, I am picky about pizza. Mama Leone's is the best I have found in the Venice-Nokomis area. Understand that finding good pizza in Florida has proven to be a challenge, but one I have been actively perusing for some time. Also, let me make it clear that good pizza in Florida does not equal good pizza... More
