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. You cannot fault the staff although it was busy they really were very attentive and courteous. For us as a family with an older member with us it was a bit too noisy and it... More

The staff is very friendly (all italian usually) and we feel at home every time we go. We never tried the other dishes in their menu as... More

Thank you to the whole team over at Leonardo, this is one of Hove's very best restaurants, and has been for a number of years now, amazing food, stunning service, always great value and the perfect place to eat, drink and watch the world go by with their terrace, well worth a visit,

We had planned an evening around ordering pizzas from Leonardo. Unfortunately when we rang up they told us their website offering home delivery was 3 years out of date. Guessing it's under new management?

This one gets full stars from me, the food was excellent and the attention and service provided to the customers was perfect. I had a wonderful seafood plate, and I must say that that the portions was really generous compared to what I'm used to in London.

Visited Leonardo Restaurant on Friday lunchtime...very bad choice on my part Staff greeting was friendly enough but from there on in the rest of the dining experience was all downhill. Started with a garlic bread that was so salty I could feel the salt granules dissolving on my tongue, this was then followed up by a prawn and asparagus risotto... More

The front-of-house "old guard" have come back, thank goodness, restoring Leonardo to its rightful position as best Italian restaurant in Brighton and Hove. Once again a pleasurable dining experience with the food as terrific as the staff, so we're planning lots move visits in the future. Bellissimo!

I've visited Leonardo's Restaurant in Hove twice in the last month. The menu and choice of dishes are excellent. We were greeted by very friendly staff who were attentive and very professional. I lived in Italy for ten years and so really enjoy good Italian food. The pasta served in the restaurant is very authentic and the portion sizes are... More
