Good value

We got a pizza to go since there was no outside dining area and we were traveling with our dogs. The pizza was delicious and much less expensive than what we were used to paying in FL.

I ate spaghetti with meatballs. Their prices are very affordable for the average college student and I would recommend every person visiting Berea to stop by and see for themselves.

As a poor college student without a car, I go to Papa Leno's all the time for inexpensive, delicious pizza and pasta.The workers are always friendly. The food is always great. The place is clean and has a warm atmosphere. I can't wait till I get to go again!

I enjoyed eating at this fantastic restaurant. Here you will find pastas and pizzas. With the pastas comes butter bread. It is really good. I enjoyed the butter taste. They expanded to another room and it makes the restaurant more room.

I have been to Papa Leno's too many times to count. Everything I have ever tasted here has been outstanding. My favorite would have to be the philly cheese steak sandwich. It is steak with grilled peppers and onions and a slice of cheese on a grilled bun. I have heard several people comment that they had "tasted philly cheese... More

The food here was delicious. Had Lasagna with just the right portion. Bread portion was enough for two people. Accomodated food allergies with care and concern.
