Good ice cream!

I am not a huge fan of hard ice cream in the first place but they had so many good choices of flavors! I tried the choco pb and it was so good but I decided I wanted a fruit flavor. I had the raspberry with marshmallow topping and it was delicious!

The ice cream here is NOT home made. It is mixed in store using pre-made ice cream mix from Galliker's. Calling it homemade is lying and it misleads customers. You can order the same ice cream mix that Leo's uses from Galliker's. So don't be fooled.

This place has the best ice cream in the big metropolitan Harrisburg area. Every flavor I've tried is excellent. My favorites are: Coffee Chocolate Chip - What a great combination. Tastes like it sounds. Almond Joy - Again tastes just like it sounds. Also a favorite of several of my friends and it has been known to inspire an exhuberant... More

This is an amazing ice cream store! Everyone I know wants to go to Leo's for dessert. The ice cream is superb! The coffee ice cream is a must! The restaurant itself is perfect! You can sit inside or out. I've been there with family, friends and even just with my husband and it's great for every occasion. It's decorated... More

Leo's isn't much to look at, but don't let that fool you. We have been fans for several years and have never been disappointed by the quality or the variety of the ice cream. Having moved to a more spacious location but no more scenic, the somewhat larger venue still provides quick and friendly service. Ignore the railroad embankment and... More

This is not a meal-serving restaurant, although you could happily make a meal out of their fabulous ice creams. Can't say enough good about all of their flavors! All of them are displayed and free samples are happily provided. Service is friendly and quick. There is ample seating inside but the real attention getter is the very nice outdoor seating... More

We have frequented Leo's for many years, and it's our favorite ice cream shop in Carlisle. Their new location is very handy, spacious, bright, and very clean.

My mother in law introduced us to Leo's in November and we had to make a return trip when we were in town again for Christmas. It is some of the best ice cream we have ever had! So many unique flavors, each one delicious! My family loves the salted caramel the most, but I have enjoyed cherry chocolate and... More

The absolute best ice cream ever! Tom Leo (owner) is a friendly and community-oriented businessman. He aims to please every customer and his employees do likewise.
