A little bit of oregano and garlic would have made the bland tomato sauce into something tasty. They served fair food for a fair price. After all it is a college town.

We both had Chicken Parmesan. The crispy chicken was excellent. They bake the sauce and spaghetti in a bowl covered with mozzarella cheese. Unfortunately, too much cheese. It hides the freshness of the sauce. We both began to peel away the cheese and eat the sauce and pasta below. That was excellent! If you're in a hurry, this is not... More

One of the better pizzas we have had. The homemade crust is crispy on the bottom with softer sides. We had one of the specialty pizzas, the chicken, bacon ranch. It was shredded chicken, and bacon with a ranch dressing sauce instead of the usual red or white sauce. TIP, this is located in the heart of the campus of... More

We live in Lexington, KY, and have gone to Berea just to eat at Papa Leno's because we like it so much. The chocolate cake is the best I have ever eaten! But be sure and try it all!!! Someone has apparently spammed the website and posted that this restaurant is closed, but it is not!!! It is open for... More

While I only make it back to Berea once a year now, I always visit Papa Leno's when I do! Great food, and Greg is a real chum (and a heck of a pizza dough thrower!). Keep up the good work!

Papa Leno's is one of my favorite places to eat. Please note that it is NOT closed as marked on here, but is certainly open for business. If you go here when college is in session, be prepared to wait. This is a huge hangout for college kids. This is the place we take out of town guests. Then, for... More

We stopped in for lunch and enjoyed a pizza. You place your order at the counter, and the seat yourself. The service was good, the atmosphere pleasant, and the food was really good. We will go again if in the area.

Casual place. Great for families with little kids or teens. Great for groups to meet and eat. Our party had the spicy wings $6.99, the spaghetti $6.99 , the clam chowder (nothing special but ok), and a garden salad $2.49. Order when you enter. They'll bring the food to your table. First visit. Sit at a table by the window... More

I'm from Chicago but have been living in Montana and Georgia recently. I miss the awesome pizza in Chicago. This pizza was very respectable - way better than anything I've found so far in MT and GA. They delivered faster than they said and the delivery man came up to my 2nd floor room, which was nice.
