“We came back and were not disappointed”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

18 of us descended on Leone in early August and enjoyed a great evening. It wasn't busy and we had the run of the crazy golf. It was probably too chilly to be eating alfresco but we didn't want to eat inside. Most had pizza and enjoyed it and one or two had pizza and were not disappointed. The trick is to order in advance.
The place is clean and well run and at a decent price for overseas visitors - it is probably expensive for those who are paid a local salary.

Watch out - they are closed on Mondays.

“Pizza, pizza, pizza”
Reviewed July 6, 2013 via mobile

Great place to eat a real italian pizza! Sometimes you have to wait a long time until you get your food. Still a nice place, going there frequently!

“We are going to eat there again!”
Reviewed May 1, 2013

Great evening sitting out under the stars with good quality food served well. The crazy golf is surreal! (we were there in August 2011)

“Delicious, friendly and very helpful”
Reviewed December 28, 2012

Due to bad luck we stranded in Dodoma and found the pizzeria where the owners even allowed us to camp one night! After we went regularely there to eat and the pizza as well as the pasta were delicious. The garden is beautiful and the atmosphere easy going and very friendly. They have a small shop there and I found out that the owners are doing a great job for local kids and orphans! So by enjoying great food you are as well helping good people to do their work...

“Great starter, pizzas were a let down”
Reviewed November 23, 2012

Had been in the bush staying in $9 a night guesthouses and eating by the side of the road for 10 days so I was looking forward to a great meal, and the first impressions were promising, lovely location, good service, a fantastic starter, the verdura grigliata was perfect, and my colleagues salad was also well prepared and very tasty, and the pizza bread nibbles promised a good pizza. However, when the pizza arrived it was sweet, possibly the tomato base and a little disappointing overall? Still possibly one of the best choices in Dodoma, but room for improvement
