Restaurant details
Dining options: Dinner, Late Night, Delivery, Reservations
Description: The venue, in the vicinity of the prestigious and breath taking Mahenovo Divadlo Brno theatre, offers a welcoming environment for a special occasion with friends and family, for a romantic date as well as other events such as meetings, marketing presentations, private parties, corporate dinners, fashion shows and weddings. The modern style and low light, the elegant surrounding and the design furniture with green and cream leather chairs help creating a special and cosy atmosphere. The menu is quintessential italian as it is its respect for traditions and it presents the opportunity to rediscover unique and authentic dishes blending the love for italian cuisine together with the demands of local clients. The rich and meticulously selected menu card comprises a broad selection. It may be hard to decide what to order when, among the mouth-watering choices, delicious pizzas, fresh pasta, fish delicatessen, but also bruschetta, risotto and yummy desserts stand out. The bartenders serve at the tables if you fancy an 'aperitvo' as a convivial start of your evening out. Our staff will welcome you and make you feel at ease. They will promote a genuinely pleasant atmosphere which will improve your experience of the meal. To meet the demands of all our customers, we can accommodate 90 guests in two separate dining rooms, completly no smoking, provided with air condition and free Wi-Fi connection.

“Best in Brno”
Reviewed May 7, 2014

Leonessa is one of my all-time favorite restaurants. I went here many times while living in Brno and it never disappointed. The Sfiziosa pizza is incredible as are the gnocchi and antipasti. You really can't go wrong with anything. A good indicator is that it is also extremely popular among Brno's growing Italian community. Luciano (not sure if he is still there) is a wonderful waiter and really contributes to the great environment there :-). You should definitely go there if you are in Brno!!

“The best italian restaurant!”
Reviewed April 22, 2014

Simply the best italian restaurant in Brno, the pizza is lovely and the pasta is not less.
I had risotto funghi e zafferano and my girlfriend pizza gorgonzola e speck.
The restaurant is close to the city center and it's downstairs between two pubs...
Several members of the staff are Italians and this is a guarantee of good food :-)
The prices are quite cheap.
Thanks Leonessa

“simply overrated”
Reviewed April 20, 2014

I was taken to this restaurant by some local friends who told me this was the best Italian restaurant in Brno. It is run by Italians, but the food is nothing special. I've had better pizzas in Brno.

“Good food... not so good service.”
Reviewed April 7, 2014

We gave this restaurant a try last month. The food was great and the portion sizes were very generous. I am glad I waited for the food to come.. We were seated in the "non-smoking" area next to the bar, but an employee or friend of the staff started smoking 5 feet away after we got settled in. The service was slow, my husband received the wrong beer twice and we had to wait about 40 minutes for our food. We watched as a table next to us came about 10 minutes after us, received a pizza, finished and paid and our appetizer, salad, and pasta dish (all to come together) had not arrived.

“Good Food”
Reviewed March 27, 2014

Excellent food & staff at a reasonable price

We had a table for 9 and staff very friendly

Not 5 star dining but for location very good

Good place to eat when staying in Brno

One thing to note is that it is downstairs and signage could be better but worth finding
