My fave restaurant in Andersonville! – Leonardo's is a great place to relax, have a cocktail or a glass of wine, and enjoy the freshest, tastiest Italian food in the neighborhood. The original chef is back, and the food just keeps getting better and better. My favorites are the meatball starter, the Pappardelle, and any of the fish daily specials. And remember to order the antipasto - it's huge and beautifully presented. Mangia!

My fiancee and I decided to visit Leonardo's after driving by on a Saturday afternoon. We figured we'd try and catch the last edge of the dinner rush. We were acknowledged as soon as we entered, but had to wait for a few moments for a waiter to seat us. We were seated and had bread, olive oil, and parmesean immediately brought to us. The waiter took a little longer to get to us than I would have liked, but it turned out that there were only 2 waiters and one busboy in the entire restaurant, and between the them they were taking care of what looked to be between 35 and 45 diners. The waiter apologized for any delay, and took our orders.

We began with the meatballs which were a special and not on the menu. Even as busy as the restaurant was they came quickly and were amazing! Tender and moist, covered in a spicy tangy red sauce with fresh basil and shaved parmesean. If they are a special when you visit, don't debate, get the Meatballs!

We did have to wait a while for the entree's but it was worth it. Both were large helpings right from the kitchen, very hot and wonderful smelling. My fiancee had the Penne Arrabbiata which was spicy, rich and delicious. I had the Rotini Giganti. It was very good, but not quite what I thought it would be. I was expecting more of a Gorgonzola bite in a richer white sauce, but it was actually rather mild. However, the ingredients were all fresh (delicious peas!) and I would recommend it for anyone who wants something mild and fairly light.

Even though dinner took much longer than expected, our service was very good; keeping us up-to-date about the status of our meal. Our water glasses were never empty, and we always had bread and dipping oil. And I never saw any of the waitstaff slow down. If Leonardo's can get more staff like the three I saw, it will really be amazing.

I recommend Leonardo's to anyone who loves Italian

Editorial Review – Edgewater trattoria serves heaping portions of pasta, meat and other dishes.

Great dining in Andersonville – We tried Leonardo's when they first opened, and were still BYOB. The food was great - the preparations and presentation are terrific. And now they've got their full-service bar and a great wine list. Great place for dates or groups.

What a gem!! – A pleasant surprise to Andersonville amongst so many Italian restaurants. Food was outstanding. Service was friendly and professional. Had a three- star meal at a reasonable cost. Andersonville finally has an upscale gem in its neighborhood.
