Five of us went for dinner on Friday evening December 23. We entered via the pizza place; to the right were two dining rooms (there is also an upstairs balcony). We were given a table in the second room, and soon we realized the acoustics were awful. The room is all stone and wood, with noting to absorb sounds. A... More

I'm sorry to hear that some people have a bad experience here - we had great service and delicious food. As we walked in and lamented having forgotten the wine, the manager overheard and offered to order wine for us and have it delivered. It was not crowded (a Thursday); the waitress was at the table the moment we sat... More

Food wasn't better than what I can cook myself. The thing that really annoyed me was that I asked for my pizza to be returned and cooked slightly longer, as the dough was still raw. Five minutes later, they returned with a pizza which was burned, and it looked like it was on purpose. They refused to hear my complaints.

I would not eat here again mainly because the food was average or less. One person in our party had meatballs and she said they were dry and overcooked which is how they visually appeared. The decor was okay, I did not go upstairs so do not know what the second floor dining room looked like. My menu was dirty... More

Located on Park Street right off of Bloomfield Avenue, Leones is a great Italian restaurant seeking traditional Italian fare. Restaurant is huge, and is well designed inclusive of pictures on the walls. Food is excellent and portions are very good. Very nice that the owner comes around and checks on everyone. Dinner starts with complimentary warm freshly made bread, served... More

I had a reservation for 8 people on a Saturday night and I was seated within 5 minutes of arriving that evening. We had a table outdoors, which was perfect, because it was a gorgeous night out. Restaurant is BYOB and there is a liquor store right on the corner. Waitress was great. Hot bread was served while waiting for... More

If you want good Italian food, you gotta go to Jersey. Leone's will not disappoint. I saw this restaurant on an episode of Gordon Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares and I think Ramsay definitely made improvements. I got the eggplant parmesan with pasta. The sauce was savory with just the right touch of sweetness. The eggplant was soft and melted in your... More

Service - adequate, if a bit awkward Food - really poor, pizza was a bit of a joke - spongey base, not charred and chewy as brick oven pizza should be, ingredients felt cheap and processed. Pasta and sauce didn't taste as good as at home from a jar. Location is great, this place has potential. Honestly I would advise... More
