Always a great place for lunch. I especially like the fall and winter as there are always several soups on the menu along with great sandwiches. Summertime affords an opportunity to sit outside right on Hope Street to watch all of the action in Bristol. They have beer and wine (not sure if they have a full bar or not).

We have only had the chance to eat pizza here, which is quite good, but the other specialties in this place look great as well. Sidewalk seating on this very pleasant section of Hope Street in Bristol.

After walking around town, we decided to stop here for a light lunch. We got a nice sidewalk table and got quick, pleasant service. We had pasta fagioli and clam chowder, a lobster roll and a BLT. Everything was very good, and the chowder was excellent. Prices were pretty reasonable. The place is a little more casual than the facade... More

You can always count on great service, good food and a reasonable bill here. We have been several times and it is consistently good, especially compared with many other higher-priced restaurants in the area where service and quality are hit or miss.

My wife and I usually come here for lunch. Love when we are able to get a window seat as you get to people watch and get a good feel of the town. When it is warmer, it is great to try to get one of the half dozen or so outside tables. The food is good but more expensive... More

Leo's has always been one of our favorite restaurants. But with our busy schedules we haven't been here in a while. I'm so glad we ate dinner here yesterday especially since they were also celebrating their 16th anniversary of opening at the Hope St. location. As always, we were greeted by the friendly staff as soon as we stepped thru... More

Food is average but the location is great if you enjoy watching the world go bye. The pizza is probably a hit every time.

While visiting an older friend, we got food to go at Leo’s Italian restaurant. We tried the tortellini with garlic and chicken, lasagna, and penne with tomato sauce. The tortellini with chicken and garlic was the most tasty. I also enjoyed the lasagna. The food was good and the atmosphere in the restaurant was cosy and comfortable. The restaurant had... More

Although looks fancy from the outside this is a very good restaurant to go with kids, friends, a date or solo. Good service, great atmosphere. Waitres was very attentive with us specially with the kids. The food was nice but nothing to die for. It would not be my first choice to go out with family and/or friends but second... More
