“The only pizza...”
Reviewed 11 February 2012

...worth eating in the area. Because it is the best. Great variety of toppings, great lasagna, tortas are super, fries to die for. Chix and fish pretty good also.

Service with a smile in a friendly pueblo.

This is a must if you are here for more than 4 days.

“We Love Leo's”
Reviewed 27 January 2012

Consistently yummy food. Of course the pizza is great, but try the salads, which are wonderful and the garlic fish or shrimp is devine. Great, friendly service. Habla Engles. Charming pueblo. Very reasonable prices. Go, go, go!!

“A Hidden Local Treasure”
Reviewed 1 January 2012

This off-the-beaten-path restaurant (located a few miles south of Akumal off MX 307 in the pueblo of Chemuyil) is one of the very best restaurants in the area. The menu is a mix of Italian, Mexican and American food, but their signature dish is pizza. This thin-crust delight is invariably excellent. The diners in this restaurant are easily 80% local people, and most of the remainder are "ex-pats" who live in the area part of the year. Leo's is frequently crowded and service can be slow, but it is worth the wait. Calling ahead is a good idea. Special orders are no problem. Prices are relatively low.

“Only place to get decent Pizza”
Reviewed 30 December 2011

Pizza is not found at too many places in Akumal, and if you want a great pizza you have to go to Leo's. It is located in the next town down the road towards Tulum but worth the trip. How often can you get a pizza served with fresh tortilla chips and salsa while you wait. Good selection of toppings and very generous.

“Awesome Pizza!”
Reviewed 29 December 2011

Great pizza! Small pizza joint in an authentic non-tourist neighborhood of Chemuyil. People in the town are super friendly, food is super good, great selection of Tequila! And cold beer and coca-cola! Don't walk past this place!!
