My wife and I meet here for lunch a lot as she works nearby. The garlic rolls (white or wheat options) come out in a basket lined with wax paper to keep the lake of garlic butter from spilling out on the table. It is freaking awesome! Conserve that stuff and you'll have a nice dipping sauce for your thick,... More

My husband and I come to Leonardos almost everytime we are in Gainesville visiting family. The atmosphere is chill, the salad bar is fresh, the garlic rolls are good, and thr pizza is amazing.

The service was great. The pizza was so delicious. We ordered the Big Leo med pizza and the salad bar for myself, my husband and grandson. We were stuffed and still had 3 slices to take home. We ordered the lasagna for my mother-in-law and apparently it was awesome. She normally eats a little bit but Today she ate it... More

The best deep dish in Gainesville. True Chicago style pizza! The garlic rolls are SCRUMPTIOUS! Fredo gives great service- always a smile and sense of humor. We love this place!

Atmosphere: Looks like a building from the 70's, which is a good thing. Lots of wood, stained glass, and plants decorate the inside. The bathrooms need some renovation, but they are relatively clean. It is really homey. Staff: Everyone is really friendly. You seat yourself, but the staff regularly checks the tables to see if there is anyone new. The... More

Stopped in around 5pm in hopes of getting the lunch special. Was told that the lunch special consisting of a drink, slice of pizza and salad bar was avaliable anytime. We were so happy to get our usual. Always enjoy dinning at the Millhopper location. Never been dissapointed with atmosphere, service or product. Great place to dine.

I have been here several times. But now only get back once a year. Went with several old work friends. The Big Leo pizza was good but didn't have as many toppings as I remember. The server was very good. The beer was cold, but being a local chain you think they would carry some local Gainesville brewed beers.

This is a review of the Leonardo's pizza of Millhopper. As a teenager in 1979, I worked at a Chicago area Pizza Hut when they introduced the pan pizza. Stepping into Leonardo's was like stepping into a time warp. I was looking for the DeLorean with the flux capacitor parked outside. The decor doesn't look like it has changed since... More

Quite simply the big leo is the best pizza I have ever found anywhere. The garlic knots are also the best I have found in any location. The salad bar has a nice selection and is always fresh and tasty. The wait staff is always very attentive and friendly. The lasagna is also very good. A very old school pizza... More

We have been in Florida for several weeks now and have been craving a good pizza. However, to date have not been able to find a local pizzeria that made a pie similar to what we were accustomed to up North. By recommendation we sought out Leonardi's and was not disappointed. Ordered a large 5 topping Sampler Special (pepperoni, sausage,... More
