We visit Bristol several times a year, as our son attends Roger Williams University. Our first meal at Leo's was on July 4, just after the famous Bristol July 4 parade. We came in soaked from the pouring rain, but the staff at Leo's made the day special and helped us dry off and warm up. We had a good... More

My wife and I have been going here for years. Robin, the waitress, always greets us with a big smile! She lets us pick our table which is outside when it is warm or in the window when it is cool so we can watch the people and the cars go by. We always have the same to eat...... their... More

Waited over one hour for an Athenian pizza, which finally arrived, undercooked. Waitress service did not get drink order right, and never returned to see if we needed anything. Grossly overpriced.

My daughter and I ate at Leo's Restaurant after Xmas shopping in the various stores in Bristol what a nice way to start the Christmas Holiday. A change from the big box stores and malls. Stopped for lunch at Leo's and had the best BLT and Fries I had eaten in a long time. The fries were crispy but soft... More

I have gone to Leo's a few times because it is a good place to go with a lot of friends or family. The restaurant is spacious and able to fit large parties. The people who work there are beyond kind. However, the food unfortunately is either hit or miss. Sometimes it can feel like generic Italian food.

Very attractive place on the outside, rather spartan on the inside. I had Lobster Mac n Cheese which was very good. Service was good, not to long of a wait for our order either. I had enough leftover for a lunch the next day.

I have frequented this establishment many times, mostly for lunch. My favorite is the Leo panini. This restauarant started (in a different location) a couple generations ago as a great pizza place. The grandson, Paul, has done a good job 'modernizing' the menu and growing this business. We've had catering done by Leo's and have been quite satisfied. Recently we... More
