Description: Chic and comfortable, the Leonardo Cafe can give its customers the taste the flavor of "made in Italy". Located in the center of Santa Maria a few steps from the sea, you'll enjoyintimate and relaxing atmosphere for lunch and dinner, with a wide range of wines. With these words Leonardo da Vinci referred to his hometown and to the areas on the hills of Montalbano where the land yields genuine products and good will.Here, where hills, villages, priories, villas and farmhouses are surroundedby vineyards and olive groves, the presence of the Great Genius can still be felt.

“A nice treat!”
Reviewed June 19, 2013

A bit of a treat as a touch more expensive then most other restaurants but was certainly worth it,the seafood risotto for a starter was the best starter i had during my 2 week stay,
Beautiful venue to boot.

“Excelent restaurant”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

Excelent athmosphere and food, good wines and Nice service. The price can be high but you are in Cabo Verde where every thing is imported.

“Excellent food”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

Went to this restaurant on our first evening in Santa Maria. Meal was delicious and highly recommended if a little more expensive than others we used during our week. Watch out for the cost of drinks at £9 for a Bicardi and Coke and a reluctance to give the correct exchange rate for the Euro
