“Great Italian Restaurant”
Reviewed 31 July 2013

This is still a great Italian restaurant with fantastic pizzas (take note Leopard Beach that pizzas are not supposed to be as thin as tracing paper), great bruschetta and my my wife loved the mozzarella cheese.

As others have mentioned the ice cream is also exceptional.

Well worth a trip out from the hotel food if you are down the coast.

“CONSISTENTLY GOOD”
Reviewed 28 July 2013

I was in Leonardos in June and July of this year and am happy to say that it remains consistently god They have removed the Arabisc stylew drapery and the fish are gone from the waterfall that was behind the bar but despite this it is still an oasis in a hot plkace Coffee is excellent the ice cream is "ITALIEN" and the staff as always welcoming especially good with my little boy , they well groomed and efficient. It is the perfecrt place to sir early on aSunday morning and relax I do this while my wife and children attend chiurch
I think this is due in a great deal to the pleasanr=t working conditions and tha fact the owner is never far away which in any busiuness is a neccessity. Only one personal bug bear of mine is I do wish they would replace the terrible rusty topped fridge behind the bar a minor detail but it does stay in your mind as these things do!

“Easter holiday”
Reviewed 8 April 2013

It is my favourite place when in Diani Beach, to have some good coffee, relax, read the newspaper, enjoy a pizza and Italian home made icecream. Ideal location close to the Nakumatt.
