My fiance and I got engaged that morning and wanted to have dinner on the gorgeous back patio as we had before celebrating another occasion. We told the hostess we got engaged and we wanted to eat on the downstairs patio but instead, she takes us upstairs to this small table in the back right in front of the door with no view. I nicely asked the waitress if we could eat downstairs like we wanted but it was full, so instead, we moved to the other side of the upstairs to another (slightly bigger) table. It was a little better but I was missing the atmosphere of the downstairs patio. I wish they had done a little more for us as we told them we had JUST got engaged that day. No complimentary drink or dessert. They didn't make any fuss over it. A little disappointed.
I was in Virginia Beach on vacation and came here on a date with my boyfriend. Beautiful environment, lovely experience, and delicious food. The vegan options were a plus. The waiter was nice and courteous. I plan to come back here the next time I am in Virginia Beach.
Another superb dining experience at Leone's! We combined an outing to the Chrysler Museum (to view the special exhibit on "Americans in Paris") with an early dinner.
Our server was so sweet. She accommodated me and my requests as well. Thank you so much !!
Nice romantic feel and food was great. Our server was kind of slow but overall she did great.
Amazing service, amazing food, I will definitely be returning!
Wonderful Experience! Great outdoor seating area! Could use space heaters but lovely nonetheless
Leone’s was great! Every dish came out quickly, and was perfectly cooked and tasted superb! Our waitress Lindsey was wonderful with her suggestions and very polite! Cannot wait to visit again in the summer and sit on the rooftop!
Unfortunately this was the first and last trip to the restaurant. Expectations were high for a birthday dinner but the restaurant could not have delivered a more disappointing experience. The restaurant was called the day of the reservation to remind them that this dinner was for a birthday and yet the restaurant dropped the ball, never acknowledged or acted upon this information. The food was OK. I am not going to overly criticize the food but there wasn’t much flavor in the dishes. The restaurant had otherwise excellent reviews which solidified my choice but this experience terribly under delivered.
Excellent experience. No special occasion, simply dinner with mother. Wonderful service, great food, incredible ambiance.
What a I will say is that the lamb chops wasn’t a good price point. I know they are expensive, but $40.00 for three chops and mashed potatoes was discomforting. Albeit they were good, I was still hungry after eating them.
Aside from that, excellent experience.
JB delivered A1 service!
Completely rude management. We were told that the restaurant was not taking reservations and that they could not accept walk ins. After reserving a table online ten minutes after being told we could not we were seated. The manger offered no apologies and was not caring about the inconvenience. I DO NOT recommend this place to anyone! Poor customer service.
It’s was a birthday celebration however no cake was give or birthday dessert, but overall it was delicious
We really enjoyed our dinner at Leone's. We will definitely dine there again!
JB was our server and an absolute delight. Played along so well with us ! He made my Birthday extremely memorable. Very attentive but not in an annoying way. Explained everything down to the bone. They take your appetizers and main course order altogether, put do not ask them to start until you are ready, after your appetizer. Everything was at our pace and the atmosphere was everything I looked for. It was quiet but in a relaxing way. It was a little chilly when we dined but we still enjoyed going outside the later part of our dining adventure there and to sit in the comfortable outdoor furniture by the fire with my glass of wine was the icing on the cake. The price was fair considering quality of service and food!
Needless to say, we will be back.
This app doesn’t specify what the specific dress code is deemed business causal unlike their website. Please be mindful the meaning of a 2021 dress code isn’t the same as the meaning of a 2010 business casual dress code. So post entering the facility, the hostess inform me that my dress code wasn’t up to par but she’d let me “slid”. She (lady green velvet dress) states, “this information is on open table app”. People, please look for yourself and it’s NOT!
As I observed the dress code, there were lots of individuals that didn’t have on a business causal attire. This made me feel pinpointed and I desired to leave the facility but my reservations were already made and wanted to give this restaurant the benefit of the doubt. I decided to stay to only eat ok food. The desert was free bc of my bday.. thank Alison (believe that’s her name). All in all the manager was informed but no sincerity in his response. Doubt if I’d go back.
Food was tasty but too Pricey for the amount of food. Not really worth the value. I would suggest another Italian restaurant on same street.
Almost had a problem but Management stepped in and took care of things diligently with no hesitation! I appreciated that! Outstanding waiters and Delicious food and would definitely recommend this Fabulous restaurant to anyone whose looking to be in a beautiful setting with magnificent food with great service!
Had one of the evening specials. Ravioli with meat sauce. It was not very warm when served. Also one of them was dry/rubbery. They courteously removed it from the bill. The bruschetta was mediocre. Prices were high for food and the wine. Won't go back.
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.
