10/10 everything was perfect. Our server was amazing
Waiter was very attentive and service was quick! Great Jib
Overall, a very enjoyable dining experience. My Chicken Marsala was a little salty with only a couple of slices of mushrooms. All the other meals were outstanding no complaints. The veal chop look amazing and my buddy said, "it was the chop he has ever had". The service by Demarisa ?? was great. I will be back.
Service was excellent - a very warm "Thank you" goes out to our waitress; she sequenced the courses professionally. However, if you reserve a table before 19:00 hrs you might feel "pushed" - as there most probably will be another reservation following yours. This is not uncommon in U.S. restaurants, but quite different from what we experienced throughout our time living in Italy - I'd say it's "quite U.S. American".
I went for the Saltimboca which in Italy is a very thin sliced veal filet, wrapped in sage leaves and served with lemon sauce. My meal was not comparable to the original. But - it was well prepared and tasted very good. My wife went for a pasta dish which was right on the spot.
We will be back soon.
We had a wonderful experience at Leone’s for a Birthday dinner. Our server Christina was knowledgeable of the menu and made wonderful recommendations. We started with drinks and got the Italian Mojito and Leone’s Aperol Spritz, both were great! We did calamari and a Caesar salad for starters. We loved the kick of the cherry peppers in the calamari. For our main entrees we did the Lobster Fettuccini and Clams Linguini, both dishes were excellent. We finished with tiramisu, and it was also very good. We had great service, great food and the atmosphere was perfect for the occasion. We will be returning very soon!
The food was great, our server was attentive and thorough and the restaurant was beautiful. It was a wonderful dinner.
The food was great! We also had calamari, that was delicious, but I forgot to take a photo. Our server was nice, but promised to bring back additional utensils for our meal (spoon for pasta, knife for duck) and returned once we were almost finished with our meals.. without the utensils. It was pretty crowded though so we understood. The espresso martini was AMAZING and my friend and I are now obsessed.
Service was excellent, food was good. Loved the ambiance as well.
From the amazing cocktails (Old Fashion, Cosmo, and Aperol Spritz) at the bar while waiting for our table to the delicious food and excellent service, our evening at Leone’s was wonderful. We were happy to be able to be seated in a small room of the main dining area. It was quieter and made catching up with friends easier. The Gnocchi and Lobster Fettuccine were cooked perfectly and the presentation was beautiful. The generous portions meant we got to take home what was leftover. I finished my night with an Espresso Martini around the beautiful fire-pits in the back courtyard.
Had Linguine with clams and lasagna which were very flavorful and salty.
First off they give you Italian bread that’s almost as hard as a rock….I was afraid it would chip my teeth. Then I ordered the lasagna which comes in a small bowl that was mostly sauce. I had to search for any pasta in it. Waitress was ok but was very busy serving multiple tables. Probably won’t go back because many other Italian places much better in the area. Only reason we went there is because of the close proximity to the Norfolk Scope since we had a concert there after dinner.
An outstanding meal!!! Outstanding wait staff!!! From out of town. We were looking for an exceptional dining experience. We found it t Leone's.
The food quality wasn’t good and the waiters seem like she didn’t want to wait on us
Great food and great service.
Meal was dry needed more sauce need more entrees were out of 2 of the meals my party wanted
lovey space in downtown Norfolk, great for people watching or gathering together with friends. The modern decor still felt intimate and the waterfall inside was a nice touch! The service was friendly and consistent. The meal was good, but felt a bit underwhelmed for the price. We got a Caesar, Tuscan soup, bruschetta and clam linguine pasta--each tasted good however I have a feeling the better dishes are the large, luxurious meat and seafood Italian inspired entrees. Would certainly come back again for a nice cocktail and great ambiance.
The restaurant itself was fantastic! Great location and ambiance, as well as the staff. The food was the only portion of the night I’d say was not worth the money. The food was subpar and quite honestly didn’t taste any different than if I were to make it myself at home, maybe even less tasteful. It was very bland and boring. Wanted to love the food, but have had better at almost any other Italian restaurant.
Excellent food and our server Cameron was awesome. Will definitely come back
Our server Christina was outstanding and made the evening relaxing and enjoyable.
The lobster fettuccini and the chicken Milanese was fantastic. The ambience was perfect and the limoncello martini was also fantastic. I did get a shot of casamigos with pineapple juice and it was 25$, for 25$, it should have been a double shot in my opinion. Other than the price of the shot, I have zero complaints.
Food & service excellent. Cam, our server, was personable and knowledgeable. Leone’s is a great place. Only minor complaint which they had no control over nor did the parents of a young boisterous noisy child.
I had a lovely Friday night dinner here before an evening at the opera house nearby. The chicken piccata was fabulous and arrived quickly. Parking was limited in a small lot across the street but was free. Street parking was free after 6 PM in downtown Norfolk but not many spots open. Service was lovely and attentive. Ambiance perfect, not too brightly lit, and a nice crowd of folks. Highly recommend. This was my second experience and has not disappointed yet! I had the chicken Milanese with arugula salad the last time and that too was delicious. My martini was made perfectly also, and the coffee at the end even hit the spot. All was top notch.
Great ambience and the food was ok. I ordered Pasta Pescatore and I can tell that they use frozen seafood ingredients.
Great parking area and the restaurant is big with roof patio.
Went for our 2nd Anniversary. Service was great, food was fantastic! Highly recommend.

Great food and staff. Drinks were amazing. Will definitely be back
My husband and I came here for our anniversary dinner. The food was very fresh and tasted delicious. The drinks were also very good. The only complaint I had was that the service was very slow. Not sure if they were busy that night or if they were understaffed to get the pandemic but it did take quite a while for us to receive our food as well as our appetizer.
Service was fantastic would definitely eat here again waiter was very helpfully and managers were nice!
Leone's was truly fantastic! The service, the food, the cocktails and the ambience were perfect for a pre-show dinner!
Loves the ambiance and the quality of the food. Table service was excellent and the rooftop dining was beautiful. Definitely going back and would recommend to everyone to try at least once.
