Worth a visit for decent Italian food

So often we find italian styled restaurants that are not run by Italians and therefore not that good, however in this case this one is family run and for many years. and still very good. We revisited recently and found excellent service by friendly helpful staff, a wide ranging menu, (not just... read more

Visited this restaurant for a meal on the evening before Brighton Marathon. The staff were very welcoming and the food was excellent and well cooked. I had a risotto as I wanted a high carb meal (but I don't really do pasta) and this was delicious. My family all had pizza which were also very tasty. All the portions were... More

This was my third visit to Leonardo's Restaurant and we had a fantastic evening. The menu is superb, with authentic Italian dishes. The service was fantastic and the waiters were attentive, helpful and friendly. I will not hesitate to return and look forward to another great evening at Leonardo's.

I went into this restaurant with my two friends and his daughter. The restaurant was completley empty and there was no atmosphere whatsoever! Once the waiter finally came over to the table I asked for a small portion on mac and cheese from the children's menu Becuase I wasn't all that hungry.. The waiter looked at me made a tutting...

We have eaten in Leonardo's several times and have always been very satisfied. The food is fresh and well cooked, my favourite is the fresh pasta. The staff are friendly - they even help with my Italian grammar! The cost is reasonable and without doubt this is the best Italian restaurant around

I hand not been to Leonardo for a very long time and that was in the evening with my husband. When it was busy and great atmosphere! This visit was a lunchtime one with a dear friend, there was hardly anyone in it and despite the fact that it was close to Christmas there were no decorations and therefore lacked... More

The only thing that is to be ashamed here is your review. Basically you are complaining because the restaurant was not busy and because you didn't see any Christmas decoration. But you said that the food was good, the staff friendly and that even the portions were too big. We really don't know what to think or do anymore, one... More

Great Italian restaurant in Hove. Reasonable price, friendly staff and good ambience. Garlic bread is great to share as a starter especially with cheese. Lots of fish both starters and mains. All traditional dishes available too.
