The service was good food ver pleasant. Too much for my wife. The staff were well skilled and attentive. Close to the railway station this is a good place to have a meal before enbarking on your journey

Was not impressed by the look of the place, but my friend (a local) recommended it, and I was not disappointed with the food which was really good. But the service level could use some focus - the waiting for dessert menu, ordering a dessert (we ended up giving up and not doing this because of the wait) and the... More

We didn't expect very much about this place due to a location and 'a feeling'. While the service wasn't always very attentive, our special requests were always taken care of and pizza/pasta was good every time we visited in July. May not be the most original Italian place around, but we were happy with the tasty food.

Quickly seated in the window, I realised that all the tables next to the windows were filled whilst the rest were empty. The portions were plentiful the Octopus carpaccio was a little dry, the entrecote was pleasant there were a lot of potatoes with it. The Seafood risotto is huge as were the pizza`s they fill the plate. The desserts... More

We ate dinner here twice--the first time we had traditional Italian food which was good the second time we had pizza which was great-on a par with good pizza in Italy.

A busy Italian restaurant just over the road from the Central Railway Station. The waitress seated us and brought much needed drinks straight away. A good menu with choice but not so much as to be overwhelming. We opted for pizza and it was delicious. Staff were attentive but not intrusive. Good value too.

My first dinner was very well served by the kitchen and service was marvelous. We ordered Leonardo pizza and gnochchi pasta...I saw the place well packed and busy with happy and satisfied customers. The menu was very good and food was prepared freshly and within 15 minutes my pizza was ready to be consumed. It was very good.

Very very nice food, prompt service by friendly staff. We were seated promptly and our order was taken at a nice pace. The food was excellent, shame we live in the UK or we would be back

We were seated quickly by friendly staff. We were given our menus and water that was already at the table. I ordered pizza and so did my friend. It was delivered quite quickly and was very good and we enjoyed it. we would definitely come back! Very welcoming and friendly staff and good service. 😄

Had a dinner In Leonardo. Risotto and pizza tasted average, no bad but not special. White wine tasted like mixed with water. Espresso tasted horrible. Service was nice and kind, that's why I give 3 points, otherwise it would be 2. Because of the food and drinks, don't want to go again.
