Whenever we visit Diani,we have to have lunch at Leonardo's. They have very nice pizzas and the service is amazing every single time we visit.

Lunched here several times - so good we keep going back! Food is excellent, well cooked and presented and just the right amount. Nice breezy area so not too hot but there are fans on the columns as well. The ice cream is fantastic - so many flavours. The food was quick in arriving with all meals arriving at once... More

Amazing to find a good Italian restaurant in Kenya. The food is excellently made and very well served. It's a really nice quiet relaxed atmosphere. Medium level prices probably a bit pricey for locals.

The Leonardo's pizza is near to Swahili beach hotel. The place is run by Italians so the food is with Mediterranean taste. The service is good and quick! I loved mango salat :) so if you are at Diani beach you must to vizit Leonardo's reastaurant!

Leonardos is a place i frequent while at Diani but almost always for icecream. Their icecream is wonderful.. The ambience n feel of the place is great. I must say it was very disappointing to sample their cuisine this weekend and not enjoy the lasagne- especially keeping in mind it is an Italian restaurant. Nevertheless...their beef with peppercorn was delish.... More

This bright, airy, spacious restaurant with it's comfortable seating and elegant decor was a delightful surprise find in Mombasa. The excellent Italian food was a major bonus!! In addition, they have a kid's playgroom which allows parents to relax over a glass of wine whilst being able to keep a eye on the kids as they climb up and down... More

I am very particular with my seafood coming from inland. But this place had the best Calamari I have had in a long while. Keep it up
