Three couples visited Mama Leone's in early February on a Friday night during the height of the season. The crowd was incredible, luckily we had a reservation. The service was slow from the beginning as the waitress appeared to be swamped. It took quite awhile to get a happy hour drink. Which was a little weak and just ok. the waitress brought up an additional beaker of both gin and vodka to add to our cocktails which I believe is above and beyond. I had Veal Alla Valdostana which was excellent my spouse tried the chicken Mediterranean. Both were very good and reasonably priced in the $20-22 range and portions were very large. The salads included were simple but good.

We went with friends on a Friday night in season but we had a reservation and were seated within 5 or 10 minutes. We were greeted quickly but the service went downhill from there. Salads arrived long before the bread. Our server said the ovens were backed up but we saw everyone around us getting bread. The food was just so so. My tortellini was way over cooked and the chicken was a little tough but the marinara sauce was excellent. My wife's chicken picatta was bland. Probably won't go back.

John B, thanks for sharing your experience with us! We always appreciate honest feedback and we are sorry the dining experience was not what you were hoping for. Keep in mind that it was "in season" and sometimes it gets a little backed up in the kitchen. Maybe sometime in the future, you might give us another chance?

My husband and I tried this restaurant for the 1st time a week ago at the recommendation of a waitress at Gilligan’s in Siesta Key. We enjoyed our dinner so much we immediately made reservations for our 9th anniversary on Jan 14th, while we were there. We had Jessie wait on us both times and she was AMAZING!!!! Super personable, but not intrusive. Provided great dinner and dessert recommendations both nights. Attaching photos of their thin crust pizza, Caesar salad, lobster ravioli, cappuccino, and tartufo for dessert. Can’t begin to say enough good things about the food, but more importantly Jessie! Thank you for making our holiday and anniversary truly memorable!!!❤️

Food is a subjective topic. What I think is great others may disagree. My only credibility is people say I know good food. Moma Leones pizza is excellent. They use good ingredients. They don’t skimp on the toppings. Their small personal pizza with three toppings (mushroom, peppers and olives) is a very filling delightful meal. I also love their Insalada de mare (salad with calamari, muscles, scallops, clams) . The owners Chris and Anastasia are the sweetest people and really appreciate their clientele. Service is excellent. The bartenders are delightful. This should be rated the top restaurant in the area.

First time going and had "Hayden" as our server. We asked questions regarding the menu for certain food restrictions. If he acknowledged, would get a "Huh" or total misinformation as what was in the dish we were questioning. "Hayden" was quite attentive to other tables (still waiting for extra bread) and the meals took quite a while...when they did come out my wife's order was wrong and luke warm..my meal was luke warm at best (seemed like they might have been sitting in the kitchen while he attended to "more important" tables)? We talked to the "Manager" when we were leaving but only got apologies ...he did indicate he had other complaints about "Hayden" and that he would be gone. To come back and try them again??

Was very disappointed in our dinner. Were celebrating my birthday. I ordered the pasta Primavera with the garlic and wine sauce. Never was told about an upcharge for the change in sauce. When our dinners arrived the other two guests were satisfied but mine had been under the warmer and the pasta had absorbed the sauce. I asked for more sauce and was told there would be an upcharge which shocked me. When the waitress finally brought it, along with another tables order, the hostess rudely moved her cart and reprimanded her in front of us. By this time we had had it and asked for our check. The waitress apologized and offered to comp us dessert. When the hostess heard that she informed the waitress that the cost would come out of her pocket. When we heard that we declined the dessert. I was embarrassed for the waitress and vowed to never come back. As a footnote I has just made a reservation for a Ladies Luncheon for 45-50 people which I intend to cancel. There is no need for an employee to be belittled much less in front of customers.

We four arrived with a reservation that was honored. It seems that the restaurant has many tables for large groups and only a limited number for fewer that 6,8 or 10 people. We did nab one by the bar and aside from one woman who was screeching, we had a good evening with good food and could converse easily.

Start off on a positive note - we were seated immediately at 6:30 pm last Thursday night. Elizabeth was a good waitress. However, it ends there. Our wine pours were the smallest I have ever seen. Figuring this was their norm, we let it go. She came right back to the table of 6 next to us with the glasses filled to the top. This was 3 to 4 times more. Not a good start. We still said nothing and ordered. 50 minutes later, after I asked for our food, she served it. My seafood cannelloni special was good, my husband's veal parmesan was so so. We will definitely not return.

Wanted to give a new place a shot. Ordered a cheese pizza. Picked it up and made the mistake of not peeking at it before hopping in the car and heading home. Cheese was burnt. Pizza was greasy and very salty. I’ve been accused of being related to a goat because I eat anything and everything. I could choke down one piece of this. Extremely disappointed

Very disappointed. I heard some good things about the new Chef and wanted to give this place a try. While the food was ok, nothing to write home about. The staff was very confused. For started the waitressed messed up one of our sides and acted annoyed to correct it. We also asked if we could order off the 'early bird' menu and was told yes. Come to find out it was in-put into the computer system 1 minute past early bird and our check was incorrect. The waitress also acted like it was my fault and I should have known 'early bird' was over. I don't think we'll be coming back here. Not made to feel like a good experience.

The food was mediocre. More like a budget food buffet. Waited and waited for an omelet which was more like scrambled eggs topped with cheese. Not good. Others in our party never even got their omlet delivered . No loss. Many items were not replenished. Waited for chicken marsala which never was replenished. Plus, charged $5 each for coffee. Apparently coffee is not included in the $25.95 each brunch price. The vocalist made a negative comment as we were leaving because we didn't leave a tip in his jar. We didn't enjoy his off tune songs. Very unorganized. Will not return.

We dined here with our group of 8 and had an OK time. I had the Lasagna and it was nothing special. My wife tried the Pasta AL Forno and it was good. Our server seemed distracted and was late with the bread and tardy bringing our drink orders and leftover containers.

We were promptly seated at 5:30 on a Monday evening. Our server was outstanding and friendly. We ordered veal parmigiana, eggplant parm, lobster ravioli and grouper pesto. All but grouper we’re voted just ‘average’. Grouper was just above average, my wife never complains. Find another place to eat.

We ate at Mama Leone's last night and have gone to this restaurant for several years. It has always been our favorite restaurant, until now. The bruschetta was soggy with tomato juice and no capers and no basil as we have always had in the past. The Daniella salad had really brown pears and so much salad dressing you could pour it off of the salad. No replacement or discount even though I sent both back. The table next to us ordered pizza and the bottom was soggy and not cooked all the way. They sent it back and it was returned burned. There is definitely something wrong with who is cooking the food and who is running the place this year. I would not ever return to this restaurant until old management is back.

We had a very nice New Year's Eve Dinner here when visiting friends in nearby Osprey. Tomatoes in our Caprese salad and Grouper dishes could have been better, they were much more pink than red and had very little flavor. Looks like they need to get a better produce vendor. Everything else was excellent and I would have rated excellent overall if not for the tomatoes. You just don't get that wrong in an Italian restaurant. Sandy was our server and did a great job. If I ever go back there I'd ask to be seated at one of her tables.
