We were in Buckhurst Hill for one night only and after reading reviews of all of the restaurants on TA could not decide which to try. We arrived on a Saturday afternoon and walked the full length of Queens road checking out what was on offer before deciding on Leornado's and walked in to book a table for that evening.
Negatives: Our table for three was just inside the door and we got a blast of cold air every time someone came in or out. Wine list just a tad pricey but these days restaurants all seem to think it is OK to put a big mark up on bottles. I would rather pay more for a good meal and less for the wine and avoid the feeling that I have been ripped off!

Positives: Everything else! Good food,reasonably good service, nice ambience and despite what has been written elsewhere about the patron, he is not rude. He has a slightly brusqe manner but is quietly efficient, professional and attentive. If you want over effusive false bonhomie then go and eat somewhere else. However if you want good food in a small and lovely genuine italian restaurant look no further!

This restaurant is a regular haunt and never fails to deliver freshly cooked good value food. We are always assured of a warm welcome.

I came here for Valentines on 2005, and came back in mid 2012. It was just as good. I loved the food. i can't comment on price as I didn't pay either time I came.

My husband and I visited this restaurant on Friday and had a wonderful meal and very reasonably priced . All through the meal I was looking forward to a lovely homemade desert, but when I looked at the desert menu I was so disappointed to find there were only ice creams bought in wholesale, sold in plastic cups!! If only there were a few Italian deserts, it would of made the meal complete and the perfect restaurant.
