Excellent food! Homemade pasta, delicious sauce, impressive list of wines, and friendly staff. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for italian in downtown Norfolk!
This was my first time at Leone's. I took my wife there to celebrate Valentine's Day and it was exceptional! I highly recommend it! It isn't cheap, but it is well worth the price. I absolutely loved the indoor "waterfall" and the entire ambiance. The food, drinks, and service was outstanding! I think our server was a guy named J-B. He was very professional and helpful. The hostess was also very welcoming. I mean, overall this is an awesome place to dine and relax with loved ones and good friends! We can't wait to go back!
Great service by our server but 1st when we walked in they gave us the worst table in there ! I had to ask for a different table and the hostess worked with us ! Unbelievable that this table was even available for the customers . However our server was so good that it made up for it
The service and food was exceptional. Our server was kind and attentive as soon as we were seated. Our adult beverages were amazing. They ensured social distancing and everyone was wearing a mask when appropriate. I would definitely recommend this place to a friend.
Service was exceptional. Food was great. Would definitely return.
We were seated in a back room that didn’t really match the trendier/cozy vibe of the front of the restaurant. It felt like a hotel convention room. The service was great and efficient!! Calamari, old fashions, and my SO’s pork chop, and the desserts were delicious! My sausage with broccolini was bland and watered down. They didn’t even use broccolini, but rather regular broccoli that wasn’t cooked enough. The sausage lacked flavor, as did the sauce. Maybe just don’t order that dish and you’ll have a great experience!
Excellent dinner and service!!! The food was incredible and we will return.
Decided on Leones for dinner to celebrate a friends birthday. JB was our waiter and was amazing! He was attentive and quick to give recommendations on specials and selections from the menu. Did not feel rushed between courses and even brought out a surprise dessert for my friends birthday.
Make sure to try the charcuterie board and lobster fettuccini, both delicious! Overall always satisfied with the ambiance, food quality and service when visiting. We will be back!
We celebrated my girlfriend's dinner at Leone's. The atmosphere and ambiance we're absolutely top notch, it's quiet, beautifully lit and wonderfully decorated. The best part of our evening was the delicious meal that wasn't only pleasing to taste, but visually as well. Neil waited on us, and provided excellent service.
Leone's was an absolute treat and I'd recommend it to anyone.
Always a good time. Service very attentive and helpful with any recommendations. 10/10 recommend for any occasion.
The food was superb! I had not been there before but assure you I will return! Service was wonderful but not annoying.
Love the food!
Amazing place to eat. The location is in a very nice area where there is stuff do, and you could walk around. The restaurant itself was amazing. Very ambient, clean, prestigious atmosphere. The service was the best I ever had never even had to ask for anything. Not even water, and since it was authentic Italian food the waiter being knowledgeable enough to help me choose was awesome. The food is out of this world. There wasn't nothing I tasted which was a all new for me that wouldn't be in the category of best I ever had. Even the bread, and butter. Absolutely must go
My favorite place.
I don’t come here often enough.
The food, drinks and service are always impeccable!
I can’t wait until summer to get back to rooftop seating!
Seating by the door was not favorable at all. Everything else was superb
New Year’s Eve dinner. Wonderful food and service. First time visiting, will definitely be back!
great service and food! can't beat that. highly recommend.
Great food & service!
The food was delicious. All parties at the table throughly enjoyed their entree.
Thank you! We are glad your group enjoyed their experience, we hope to see you again soon!
Wanted a nice dinner experience before a theater event at Chrysler Hall - Leone’s was a perfect choice. We were seated in the “next door” room, which was quiet enough to enjoy my date’s conversation while still having attentive table service.
Thank you for your kind words. I am glad we were able to give you a beautiful dinner before curtain call. We look forward to serving you again.
Good food, good service, good time every time. Plan to return especially when the rooftop is open!
Thank you for your kind words! We have officially opened our rooftop patio for dining. We hope to see you soon.
We have dined at Leone's before and enjoy this restaurant. I ordered the Veal Chop and the sauce that it came in was very salty, Not bad enough to return but more than to my liking. This meal not withstanding, we will return.
Thank you for the great insight on the Veal Chop! We hope to see you again to make a better impression.
Rockfish was over cooked. Cesar salad and Caprese were was just okay. Server was excellent.
We typically get great feedback on our food and we are sorry that you did not have the same experience. We hope to get the opportunity to serve you again and change your opinion of us.
Leone’s is a nice restaurant. Service, drinks, food and the people are outstanding. Thanks to all that work so hard.
Thank you for coming in!
Leone's is a hidden gem in downtown Norfolk. The food and service is always excellent. They have a monthly wine tasting that we always look forward to. They also have roof top outdoor seating during the warmer months that is very nice. A great place to enjoy with family and friends!
Thank you! We have officially opened our patio and roof top for dining. We hope to see you soon.
Beautiful restaurant. Excellent waitstaff. Chicken Marcella was of the best I have had.
Thank you for your feedback. The Chicken Marsala is one of our signature dishes and we are excited you loved it. Since you rated us only 3/5, is there something we could improve on to make a better impression?
Great food, near Chrysler Hall.
Dinner before show at Chrysler. Service by Craig outstanding!
Thank you for coming by before curtain call! We hope to see you again soon.
Last minute reservation. Late dining. Waitress and cook were excellent.
The valet parking option is a great option. We had reservations and we were greeted by a friendly hostess staff and promptly seated. The waitress was very knowledgeable and helpful. She suggested we split the ceasar salad since it was a large portion. I had the braised short rib special for the main course and it was absolutely amazing! I love this restaurant during the summer when you can eat on the rooftop.
Chelsea took very good care of us on our 1st date night in awhile. Will recommend and will revisit.
Great food! Loved the atmosphere! Beautiful! I will def go again!
We had a great time. My date and I really enjoyed being able to look out the window and watch the world around us. It was a great first date and we'll be back!
Food preparation and taste where outstanding. Our server Kyle was a master of his craft. The ambiance and vibe where enjoyable.
Me and my fiancé came there Valentines Day 2K20 and it was beautiful! The staff are amazing & the food was delicious! We will be coming very soon!
Great atmosphere! 0-10 would most definitely recommend!
Food terrible . Servers slow. Food took forever. Ambiance nice.
The Wife & I really enjoyed our Dinning experience and great ambiance. We will definitely come agin in the warmer months for the patio/outdoor seating 💯
Thank you for your kind words! Our patio and roof top dining are officially open. We hope to see you again soon.
The food was amazing! Our waitress was amazing!
