This location is under new ownership and it is no longer worth eating at. I was never a huge fan of this location but recently it has become almost inedible. The new owners are Eastern European I think and are more interetsed sitting on the patio and smoking/talking loudly. Just not a good overall experience...and expensive

Friendly service at reasonable prices. Wide variety of Italian food will bring you back again. Pizza is a popular choice but, try the other great meals. You won't be disappointed.

Leona's makes a decent thin crust pizza. Monday night is half off pizza night. Clean and inviting atmosphere. Friendly staff.

Went to Leona's for dinner with my wife. She love the Chicken Wings. I had the non dairy cheese pizza. It was very good. It is nice to be able to have pizza. The service was very good too.
