I have never ordered anything here that wasn't good, pizzas are great, crust, toppings, bread sticks, and all of the rest are great

This is a good Italian restaurant for those who enjoy pizza and some traditional Italian fare. The bread sticks are huge and soaked in butter -- they're more along the lines of a small loaf of bread than a breadstick. They do not offer any gluten free options and use wheat in all of their soups.

Best pizza I've ever had, hands down. I've had a couple other items and they were great as well. Very nice staff and nice atmosphere. Its very popular, so it can be really packed some days, but its worth the wait!

I had a quick lunch there, knowing nothing about the restaurant in advance. The pizza, cooked in a wood-fire oven, is excellent! I do not know anything about the other foods offered.

This place was recommended to us. It was great food and the prices were great. In fact we went back for a second meal. They have great homemade garlic bread. We were told the line is out the door on the weekend.

We did not try the pizza, but enjoyed our pasta dishes very much at this restaurant. And the garlic bread is awesome! Plentiful portions at a reasonable price and good service. Would highly recommend it.

The food was amazing and the wait was short. You received a lot of food for the price, which is very inexpensive.

My wife and I stopped over night in Berea, Kentucky on a fall trip to South Carolina. We decided on Italian and chose to dine at Papa Leon's in downtown Berea. We looked over the menu as we waited in line at the counter where you place your order and pay for your meal! Just like they do at Culver's... More

Being an Italian from WNY, the food is just ok. It was clean. The employees were friendly. They have a bit of an unusual set up. You go up to a counter, order, pay, and get a number. They then bring it to your table when ready.

We stopped in here for lunch for a girls day out while visiting the shops of Berea. We could not have been better pleased. We both had the baked spaghetti and ate until we thought we'd burst, but we didn't want to waste anything. The meat sauce is made in house. It included lots of cheese and generous portion for...
