On a recent business trip to Brighton, I visited Leonardo with 4 colleagues. We all had an excellent meal, consisting of olives and garlic bread to start, followed by a couple of delicious pasta dishes and three gorgeous looking t-bone steaks, and a few drinks. We were all too full for desserts. The bill came in at less than £125,... More

Our favourite Hove restaurant had closed so we chose Leonardos instead. Pure serendipity but what a good choice. Friendly staff serving an excellent good value choice of food. Definitely return there. Light chilli penne was superb

Very good Italian restaurant, our friend said the best fillet steak she had for a long time, the pasta dish that I had, was I must say, a little over the top with garlic. Very good meal

The marinara sauce and the lamb shanks was good. The potato mash was glutinous for some weird reason. One waiter seems to be constantly flirting. Very uncomfortable.

Went for Tuesday lunch with children and grandparents. When food finally arrived the Pizza bases were burnt and the Hamburger resembled a lump of charcoal. When we complained, the Manager gave us free ice-creams and coffee. All well and good but we would have preferred a decent meal. I have eaten here before in the evening and food & service... More

It is a very busy restaurant with all the bustle of an Italian restaurant there were several tables like ours that were celebrating a birthdays.
