My wife and I dined at Leonardo's 706 for my daughter's rehearsal dinner. The pizza and humus appetizers were delicious. If I had eaten just that, I would have been very content. For the dinner portion, I had a filet and my wife had salmon. Both were cooked to perfection and were delicious! The staff was very friendly and attentive.... More

We (10 of us) were there for graduation weekend. I realize this is a crazy weekend, but this place should have planned for that. Our reservation was for 7:00, we were seated, after many trips searching for staff to speak to, at 8:35. While waiting we were able to sit outside, well, stand; the few tables available were full, of... More

After spending 5 years at the University of Florida working on my engineering degree I had to eat fast food for my graduation dinner. We made a reservation months in advance and when we showed up at 8:15 for our 8:30 reservation they were about an hour and a half behind on reservations. We couldn't even find the hostess. I...

Very nice buffet with many unusual dishes and some traditional and a large array of both breakfast and lunch items on buffet! Very delicious. The only problem was the temperature of the food was not hot enough:(

My parents were in town visiting and I was ashamed because I had yet to find a decent Italian restaurant to bring them to. My mom is an amazing cook and makes homemade pasta, so yes, that raises the bar. I had two recommendations for Leonardo's 706, so I thought I'd give it a try. The martini was good, although... More

I don't like pizza as a rule. But I'm the only one so I humor the family. Driving through and hungry I read about this place so we took a little detour. Never in my life did I think there could be a real pizza pie that tasted like this. The garlic knots we sent directly from Nirvana guaranteed. But... More

Hostess was nice. The young lady that brought water was nice. Then waited a legitimate 10 minutes and no one else even looked at us. So we walked out. Left hungry and irritated. Harry's should be better.

The pizza is ok, and some salads are average. I just go because it's near UF and it's not expensive. The service is not too good.

Fabulous food and a big variety of wine on the menu. I had salmon on spinach pasta with capers in a lemon and white wine sauce. The desserts are delicious.

MIami family once again dines at Leonardo's 706! Delicious homemade garlic bread, mussels, salad, King Salmon and the best Chicken Mona Lisa yummy dish. To top it off the homemade cheesecake is worth all the calories. Server was wonderful "Jordan" and place as usual quaint, family oriented and nice atmosphere. Highly recommend if you are in town!
