One of the best Italian restaurant not located in Italy we have visited so far. The staff was always helpful and friendly, food was gourgeos with full Italian flavours. This restaurant we would recommend to everyone who is in Brno. Since our first visit we have been here for lunch/dinner 3 times and always 5* rating.

The food at Leonessa is the best italian food you can find around Brno. But for me the golden nugget was the service. A kind italian waiter received me and my family like we were his own family. I even asked for milk shake (which is not in the menu), and he said "I never did it, but how hard... More

The restaurant is on a corner and you go down the stIrs to it. So went round the block twice looking for it. Staff speak good English and the service was swift and friendly. I had pasta with truffle and my partner had spaghetti. It was lovely. Definately recommend.

We really enjoyed this place. Contrary to some of the reviews we found the service very friendly although the food did take a while to arrive when they were not very busy. I emailed for a reservation and they telephoned back to confirm which was a nice touch. I had white bait for starter (a shoal of them) and octopus... More

Wonderful meals, ask for the daily special (sometimes not on menu), good talks, employees speak several languages, great environment. Cards accepted. Wifi (leonessa). Recommended to have espresso (Italian style) after your meal.

I spent my birthday meal in Leonessa, I love Italian food and I was really impressed with the choice of food, drinks and the exceptional customer service of the staff. I would definitely recommend anyone to this place, the starters and pizzas were huge and really appetising. Excellent value for money, plenty of choice and a really friendly place,

The venue, in the vicinity of the prestigious and breath taking Mahenovo Divadlo Brno theatre, offers a welcoming environment for a special occasion with friends and family, for a romantic date as well as other events such as meetings, marketing presentations, private parties, corporate dinners, fashion shows and weddings. The modern style and low light, the elegant surrounding and the design furniture with green and cream leather chairs help creating a special and cosy atmosphere. The menu is quintessential italian as it is its respect for traditions and it presents the opportunity to rediscover unique and authentic dishes blending the love for italian cuisine together with the demands of local clients. The rich and meticulously selected menu card comprises a broad selection. It may be hard to decide what to order when, among the mouth-watering choices, delicious pizzas, fresh pasta, fish delicatessen, but also bruschetta, risotto and yummy desserts stand out. The bartenders serve at the tables if you fancy an 'aperitvo' as a convivial start of your evening out. Our staff will welcome you and make you feel at ease. They will promote a genuinely pleasant atmosphere which will improve your experience of the meal. To meet the demands of all our customers, we can accommodate 90 guests in two separate dining rooms, completly no smoking, provided with air condition and free Wi-Fi connection.
