    Food was amazing, really. The noise level is too high for my taste. Also, our table of 2 was squeezed against a wall; it is not a setup I like. The wine list is a bit too pricy for me, and the waiter had no knowledge about it. I had to point the wine to him. The reservation was handled perfectly well by OpenTable and the restaurant. I'll come back.

    Beautiful atmosphere! Much larger than expected. Love that there is safe patron parking across the street. Food selection was great and delicious, even though it was a pared down menu for theater night. Most of all, our waitress, Suzanne, was phenomenal! She was friendly, helpful in wine and menu paring suggestions, and very efficient. We had a fabulous experience at Leone’s! Thank you!

    Server was very good and friendly. The Pasta Pescatore was a little over-cooked. Chicken Marsala was very good, as was the salad. One table of ladies getting dinner before the show was a little rowdy, but not too bad. Just noisy at times.

    We had a 5:30pm reservation before attending a musical show at the Chrysler hall. When we arrived on time, the restaurant appeared to have many good seatings available. Then, they sat us at the table in the side room, next to the closed bar area with extra dish storage rack right next to our table. Why??? We decided not to raise our concern as we did not want to ruin the remaining evening, but we must say it disappointed us. To be clear, our server Jesse was excellent, and she made up for us. Food was fair to good, and the ambiance is also good except for the table area where we sat. This was our first time dining at this restaurant, and we won’t visit here at least for a while. The restaurant should know small things like this pushes customer away, We are frequent diners at fine restaurants, and we only want to visit places where we are welcomed.

    This was our first time coming here. Our waitress was very attentive and nice. The drink selection is huge. The menu was the perfect size. My husband got spaghetti and meatballs and I got the lobster fettuccine. One word, spectacular. Perfectly cooked and the flavors were stunning. We will absolutely be back!

    We went here to try someplace new to us. Had good reviews on Open Table. Well deserved. Our server was very welcoming and informative. I really enjoyed the Chef's twist on Veal Saltimbocca. I really enjoyed that the calamari was made with tubes and tentacles served with sliced cherry peppers and perfectly seasoned.

    The food was amazing , the ambiance was amazing, however our waitress was not attentive at all to our party of 4. But was very attentive to the man that was sitting next to us a few tables down. Maybe he was a superior or personal friend but you should still show all your guests the same attention.

    Leone's served us outstanding food. This was my wife's and my first visit. Our reservation seated us at a window table in the front dining room. The cocktail selection is extensive but doesn't offer many of the mainstream brands. Our salads (Mediterranean, Caprese) were excellent. My wife chose the Duck Breast and I went with the Veal Chop as our entrees. Both were outstanding! Try them. Service throughout the evening was inconsistent and not up to the standards of the food and Leone's reputation. I chalked it up to an off night. Go to Leone's!

    Our server was really knowledgeable. Recommended good drinks to us. Be mindful about the parking. It can be little hassle around the area but limited parking is right opposite for restaurant customers (depending on the availability and timing)

    I first want to say Leone’s is usually really good. However, this is the first time we did not enjoy our experience. > Had reservations, so we were seated at table quickly but did not get greeted at the table for at least 10 minutes. When our server came, she did not tell us her name nor did she tell us the soup of the day (which I wanted to inquire about). We have been loyal patrons of Leone’s going to the restaurant at least 2 or 3 times a month. We ALWAYS order the same thing. One of the dishes we order always include a request to change the gnocchi to oriechette. For years we have ordered it this way and never ran into a problem. This time, we were told the chef would NOT do that with no further explanation. Frustrated, I turned to my second favorite dish, the chicken Milanese which I had just had the week before. No longer on the menu. I ended up ordering the chicken marsala which was not very good. On top of that, I order a sangria which was delicious. The server asked if I’d like another, to which I said yes. 15 minutes later when the food came out, the person who brought my food (different from the server) asked if there was anything else we needed. I mentioned that the server was supposed to bring me a second sangria. He said he’d check on it and the serve came back 5 minutes later to say that they no longer had any more sangria. It was a terrible night a Leone’s for me and it saddens me to say that I will rethink my options next time I think about where to eat on Granby Street.

    Out celebrating my mother’s birthday she enjoys Italian cuisine so I figured we would try out Leone’s. My waitress wasn’t very attentive but my service wasn’t terrible. I ordered a glass of the house Malbec it was pleasant. No appetizers were ordered. Entrées Salmon , Chicken Marsala and a Mediterranean salad with bruschetta. All meals were tasty. I would probably order a different dish next visit. No dessert was ordered.

    Our reservation was for 5:45 however, we arrived at 5:30 and were seated immediately. Everything was very good - food, service, drinks, etc. It was a bit noisy which made it difficult to hear our waitress and each other. Will definitely be back to try different things on the menu.
