Got late in the night to this restaurant. The staff was very welcome and helpful. Ordered some roasted veal and it was great. The taste. The combination of spices just right. The prices decent enough too.

It was a rainy day that was saved due to excellent food and service in Leon D'oro. Domestic and authentic food accompanied with friendly service and normal price is more than enough to make you happy while you are looking for new experiences in Italy.

All the pastries we tried at this lovely traditional pasticceria were fresh & delicious & the Illy coffee they serve was made to perfection every time. They even have tiny bowls of chocolate drops on the marble counter for customers to help themselves!!
