    This is one of my favorite restaurants and I normally do not have any issues. But they were out of items. And I ordered the lobster fettucine, a meal that I get often, and there was shrimp in the meal. There also were no lobster meat in within the meal, just the lobster on top and the shrimp, which should not have been there. I happen to like shrimp, but ultimately it should not have been in the meal.

    Food was delicious but the kitchen was exorbitantly slow! In addition to that, we weren’t informed that they were charging $48 a glass for Blanton’s bourbon! That is absurd!! We had no idea until we saw the bill and had to pay $96 for 2 glasses! So disappointed!

    Our server was so thoughtful, happy and pleasant. She made our dining after the Chrysler Museum so much fun. She was attentive, a good listener and was funny. My husband and I throughly enjoyed our meals. We gave her 25 percent because she was so impressive. We loved sitting in the back quietly. It was an awesome day date.

    Restaurant was not crowded yet we waited way to long for drinks. Ordered cocktails and asked for bread. Apps came but no bread. Asked again for bread and was told bread was too hard to serve. Ordered a bottle of wine to be served with dinner and glasses (but no wine) were brought to the table after meals were finished. Two filets came out great but the other two meals were a disaster. Gnocchi special was great but seriously cold. We sent it back and it was brought back just as cold. Seafood pasta was ordered without clams and came with them. By the time it came out a second time, everyone was finished eating and still no wine, lovely atmosphere but will not be going back… one complimentary tiramisu just did not cut it for all of the aggravation we experienced

    We believe Leone's is the best restaurant in Norfolk. The food is consistently delicious and our favorite, the lobster fettuccine, is wonderful. The dining area is quiet with street views and a pleasing decor. But best of all is the excellent service when dining at Leone's. Francesco and Demarius have mastered great timing and it is always a pleasure to interact with them.

    Although Leones is perfect for any occasion, we went on our 55th anniverary which made our visit extra-special. Food was excellent as usual and service impecable. We ordered the Shrimp Pesto and Chicken Marsala, and they were delicious.

    The food was good, but the service was lacking. The server frequently complained, the kitchen was unable to do a simple modification, and plates were cleared without warning with food still on them. I wanted to stay longer and spend more money on drinks, but my wife and I just wanted to leave, the overall experience was short and disappointing.
