This pizza is absolutely delicious- the white spinach pizza being my favorite. The slices are generous and the toppings are various depending on what you like- great price and mouth-watering tastes- cant wait for my next slice! The restaurant itself not that special though they did upgrade it last year and it looks better- but you are not coming here for the atmosphere- the food is what counts!

My husband and I went to Upper Darby to see a show at the Tower Theater. We did not eat dinner before arriving in town. We were hoping to find something decent to eat within walking distance of the theater. There did not seem to be too many dining options within a 3 block walk of the theater--2 or 3 pizza joints, a buffet place and a McDonalds. We checked out all 3 pizza places before deciding to go with Leandro's. The other two places were located closer to the Tower Theater and the 69th street terminal rail system, but looked filthy! They were also empty--no customers. We saw a few people walking around the street with cups and pizza boxes from Leandro's. We also saw customers going in & out of Leandro's Pizza House. So we decided to check it out.

From the outside it merely looked like a pizza counter with a few small booths in the back. Once inside, you could see the pizza counter was clean and brightly lit. They had a few pizza pies laid out so you could see the pre-made pizza slice selections. The counterhelp was very friendly and quickly took our order. We ordered 3 slices of cheese pizza and a large coke. Within minutes our warmed up slices were out of the pizza oven & being handed over to us on plastc trays. We made our way to the back of the building where they have a small table with spices (garlic, cheese, oregano, etc) and a few small booths. We added some garlic & oregano to our fairly large slices and then made our way into the side dining room. This was a pleasant surprise. From the outside of the building--looking in--you couldn't even tell that they had a side dining room. The dining room was not large, but probably had 15 booths. It was brightly lit, clean and decorated nicely for a small pizza place. They had pretty decent artwork on the walls and vases with flowers on each table. It was not fancy, but nice--MUCH MUCH nicer than the local competition! It definately was a breath of fresh air compared to the other dives we had seen up the block.

The pizza was decent for the price. I think plain cheese slices ran around $2 each. They were decent sized and had good flavor. I think they were a little bland, but they had the spices on the side so you could add more spice IF you needed to. They had a generous amount of cheese on the slices, but were a tad little light on the pizza sauce. Since they had lots of cheese, the slices were a tad greasy--but, nothing a blot with a napkin couldn't fix! Overall, we enjoyed the slices. They were not amazingly good, but decent for the price. If you are visiting the Tower Theater--it is probably one of your best options for a quick slice at a decent price with clean, well-lit sit down dining areas. The only other decent dining option in the area looks like the Waterford Inn Restaurant & Bar, but we didn't discover it until later (maybe next time).

Note: Restrooms are SUPER small & not the cleanest. IF you are visiting the Tower Theater, wait to use the ones at the Tower if possible. Nearby parking is metered parking or a pay lot.
