Southern Italian plus pizza. Wines are a bit pricey so stay with the house wine. Service was excellent. Not at all rushed. The salad was nicely served. Had chicken parmesan and eggplant parmesan. Definitely served nicely. Not overly salty as many places are. Close to the Harbor so very easy location. Server Sabrina was great, and cheery.

Stopped for dinner after packing up our RWU child for the summer. Thought it was a good idea to avoid some of the commuter traffic in Boston. Great Italian food and friendly service in a cute store front environment.

Leo's catered our daughters graduation party. Paul and his staff did an amazing job at a great price! The food was delicious, the staff was amazing and we all had plenty to eat :) We can't wait to have another event so that we can have it catered by Paul again!

The food is decent but not great. Its location on Hope Street is probably why it is so popular. There are streetside tables available during the summer months.

Early dinner with family. I had lasagne, generous portion and homemade taste. My husband had veal saltamboca, could have been 2 pieces instead of 1. Good but not great. My son had bracisole. Could have been 3 instead of 2 portions, but this was tasty. Overall good, not great. Service was good, free refills on sodas, prices fair.

As you can see by my many reviews, my husband and I enjoy dining at Leo's. What's not to enjoy! The owner/chef Paul Mancieri and his staff are exceptional! They can never do enough for you. My husband and I both usually have the Chicken Parmesan. It's a classic, topped with Leo's marinara sauce and melted provolone and served with... More

We wintered in Florida and one of the first things we did was to head to Leo's in Bristol. We love the pizza but there are many great things on the menu. Prices are not bad. On a nice warm day sit outside and take in the surroundings of this great little town.

We spent the winter in Florida and the one thing, maybe the only thing, I missed about New England that time of the year was the pizza at Leo's in Bristol. So we went the other day and we were in heaven. No pizza that good in Florida, at least we did not find it there. We are not even... More
