Loved my experience here. Feels like an intimate friendly visit to a friend's house. Tastes like homemade excellent Italian fare. Great service. Will be back for sure!

Friends have been raving about this restaurant for months, and for good reason! Italian style food which was one of the best I have ever had, served with generous amount of home made garlic and homemade pizza bread. Wine was from a local winery--both delicious and very reasonably priced. Serving size was generous--easily enough for two meals! A definite 5... More

My wife and I tried Leonardo II on the recommendation of a friend. This is a fairly small (maybe 25 tables) restaurant with strong links to old-line ethnic communities in the Trenton area. The predominant influence is of course Italian, and the menu is standard Italo-American fare. But we were surprised to see in the window a Polish eagle prominently... More

We selected Leonardo's II to cater a Retirement Dinner for a colleague and were so pleased with the way everything turned out. From the owner Rob working with us to help set the menu, to Magda who singlehandedly worked the party and provided excellent service, to the delicious food that was served. The leftovers were a hot commodity! The owner... More

I stop here about once per month for lunch on work days...greeted warmly by the proprietor...server seems happy to see us...service attentive but not over-bearing...Meals are classic Trenton Italian...reasonable prices...it is something to look forward to...can't ask for more than that.

I called Robert last minute for a an 18 person dinner reservation. He set us up,my request, in the outside terrace. We arrived early to decorate and the space was set up beautifully! The dinner and service were perfect! Thanks so much, Robert, for everything.

Good place for neighborhood family dining. Good place for Italian food. Decore is outdated but dining rooms are clean and well-maintained. Staff is very courteous and very polite. It's a great neighborhood restaurant to take the family out for Italian food. However, it wasn't worthy of charging Center City pricing. That was my only negative take away from this restaurant.
