Description: Leonardo's is a small, family owned restaurant, Yuka and Leo have been in hospitality for more than 20 years all together. Our Menu is quite small only because we work only with the freshest products possible. For the same reason we change our menu very often, to try new flavours and recipe. The restaurant is open for dinner 7 nights a week.

It may be small but it packs a punch with delivery! The food here is just great, beautifully fresh and traditional with everything made on site including the bread. Owner Leonardo has made his mark on the Rotorua eating scene and not only can he cook and run an excellent restaurant, he sports a great personality and sense of humour and has a great rapport with his customers. His staff are very professional and provide the same standard of high service. Give the over hyped Eat Street a miss and head over the road to experience some real atmosphere. Be warned though, it is small, very busy and can feel a bit claustrophobic but it all adds to the experience.Bookings are essential to ensure a table.

This was not the first time we have been to this restaurant but this was the first opportunity to return. We had a lovely dining experience. For a small establishment it was not noisy and tables were private. The food was very good and we all enjoyed our choices.

Rotorua is lucky to have this amazing restaurant.

Friendly staff with great service thrown in too.

Antipasto was delicious as with our mains. Servings were generous too and the recommended wine was very nice and good value too.

Unfortunately we were too full to try dessert....next time though.

Really enjoyed our evening at Leonardo's. The service was wonderful, they were fast but without lacking any friendliness. As regards the food, it was amazing, you could tell it had been cooked with such passion, it tasted every bit as good as it looked.
