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...

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!
