“memories of Sinatra”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2011

This Italian restaurant has been here forever. The bread is to die for and the food is solid. I much prefer the front of the restaurant where tables are in the bar area to the back which tends to be more family friendly. Very reasonably priced.

“Anniversay Dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2011

Being away on vacation for our anniversary, we often look for a nice place to eat and relax. Leo's Grandevous was just that place. The warm charm and hospitality was second to none. Awesome italian food for the price and a little Frank Sinatra in the background made for a wonderful evening. I suggest the Veal Marsala and Gnocchi. Easy to find, plenty of parking.

Thanks to Leo and his staff for making our evening truly magical.

“Great atmosphere, good food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2011 via mobile

Leo's is a must stop, for good old Italian fare. Cash only, and reasonable prices for a good Italian dinner. The charm is the overall package, you can find better food, but you should certainly enjoy a meal here. We live nearby and Leo's is in our rotation.

“Worth a Trip from Hollywood California or Hoboken New Jersey”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2011

I was thrilled with the wonderful old style Italian food served here when my brother and his wife and kids took me out January 1. Not only for the food but the ambiance and the wait staff. Both mixed, modern and old school. Just the way dining used to be. Relaxed and good! My brother and I both had the Zupa di Pescae special. Really amazing. Kids split two of their house pizzas and salad and their mother had a wonderful pasta with fish! We all shared a wonderful wine and three wonderful freshly made desserts. Chocolate cake, a Peanutbutter-Chocolate something or other, and an apple tart thing(can't really remember)
Can't wait to visit here again! This is really a local hang and they have a large flat screen in the bar in case you want to keep tabs on a game. Very family friendly and crowded.

“Meh...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2011

My husband and I went on a Saturday night in Dec for dinner here. The food is mediocre, ...depending, of course, on what you order. The Picatta was mushy and too lemony. It also came out cold. If you want mussels, the appetizer is way better than the entree in terms of flavor, definitely take note of that. Our waitress kept bringing us the wrong order. Then, she disappeared when we wanted to pay. Good wine though. We had more fun just sitting around after the dinner. The atmosphere is fun and lively. Pricing is,... okay. I do expect better prepared food though.
