“Disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2012

Over the years we've eaten here on many occasions, as a couple and with the children. The food has always been tasty and the staff friendly and helpful. Tonights visit left us feeling disappointed. I doubt we will be returning. The staff did little to make us feel welcome and barely rustered up a smile! When we asked a few simple questions, what's the cheesecake, can we get the bill, the waitress lacked any enthusiasm or subject knowledge. The staff were far from helpful and we felt like we were troubling them! When the bill finally came, we had been over-charged, and the bill had not been broken down or itemised sufficiently. When I queried the bill the waiter said he'd look at it, and sent it back with the waitress, and no apology, five pounds cheaper.
All in all, poor service without a smile, and a disppointing trip to what was once a very, welcoming family restaurant. Bring back the lovely, smiling italian waiters!

“Great food at a great price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2012

Hi visited Leos twice in March once as a late valentines night out with hubby enjoyed it so much when my daughter said where do you want to go for your mothers day treat i choose leos again
It is great value for money as we had the £11 50 deal both times,with a bottle of wine on our first visit and soft drinks on our second visit
The staff looked after us well on both visits even giving advise on how to seat my 4 month old grandson as too small for the highchair

“Traditional, intimate feeling little Italy.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2012 via mobile

We have been going to Leo's with our two boys, now 5 & 7, for the last few years and have never been disappointed. It's not fair to compare Leo's to the likes of Il Torro, they're target markets are completely different. Leo's is family friendly, small, intimate and great value. Yes there is not a massive amount of space around your table but this adds to the atmosphere. This combined with the soft lighting, decor, Italian staff with their can do friendliness make for a feeling of being in a little piece of traditional Italy.
The food has always been presented well, of good quality, quantity and amazing value.
