We are local residents and go often to Leos. However, most of the time we normally get meals to go since I'm just getting home from work and will order on the phone. It is family run by Paul the owner who is very personable with all his customers. There is never an issue with our meals and normally they... More

Not so great place to eat. Only went there because on July 4 everything else was closed. It is located downtown, so convenient, but that's all it has to offer in my opinion. Service was awful too. Perhaps it ws due to the holiday. I hope they have better days.

My husband and I just ate at Leo's. We DIDN'T leave in a good mood! I'm attaching a photo of the chalkboard showing the price of the watermelon sangria. To both of us, it looks like a 3. So, when the bill came, I asked why we were charged 8 dollars for the drink. We were told that the 3... More

Our lunch here was fine but nothing out of the ordinary. The place was empty at lunchtime. Friendly enough staff but frankly there are better places to eat in the East Bay.

Located in downtown Bristol, Leo's is a great place for lunch or dinner. Here you will find a very friendly, welcoming atmosphere reminiscent of the old world style. The menu is full of amazing soups, appetizers, sandwiches and entrees, one of our favorites being the lasagna. The eggplant is equally delicious, the burger divine. The wine list and house cocktail... More

Friendly service, and good food. I had the Leo's grinder, which was great and not too huge. The kids had pizzas, which were personal sized, but pretty small (and we're English, so even by our standards, they were quite small). Having said that, they tasted great, and Lucy and I had the melon sangria, which was delicious and scarily moreish.... More

Paul and Adrianna were amazing to work with. They were very flexible to our ever-changing requests. Paul ensured that everything was exactly how we wanted. The venue's site coordinate was especially impressed with Paul and his staff on how efficiently they worked with the other vendors and their professionalism. The food was absolutely delicious! I would highly recommend to have... More

I was able to enjoy a great dinner with my friends last week in downtown Bristol. We sat outside and ordered a summer cocktail & delicious food. Our server, Kuba, could not have been any more attentive to us! He truly made our visit to Leo's one to remember. I hope Leo's management gets to see this review. Kuba should... More

I've been coming to this place for years and it is very consistent. The pizza is delicious. They also have a special seasoning on their French fries which is a nice change and worth ordering. The outside seating is great during warm weather or if you bring a furry friend. They have lots of inside seating for big parties. The... More
