If you are up and about for Italian cuisine while visiting Brno, Leonessa is probably one of the best spots in town in where to satisfy your gastronomic urges, and I am not overstating it.

Arrived Saturday evening at 18:00 expecting a popular Italian Pizzeria. Found an empty basement with no background music and no atmosphere. Neon lights from the 80's with some weird American diner seating. Service was decent, polite and probably the only star. We had Carpaccio to start, half frozen it gave me brain freeze. Followed by sea food pasta with frozen... More

Having an Italian boyfriend, he has very high expectations of pizza. This was sufficient for us - we were hungry and it wasn't bad. He had the porcini mushroom pizza and I had the vegetarian - both equally good in my opinion. The service was a little slow, there were just a few of us around in the restuarant but... More

I had high expectations, but was disappointed. Pizza didnt taste like Italian pizza and the toppings were not fresh at all. Homemade lemonade was great though. The ambiance was quiet, but not nice and Italian.

When i was in this restaurant several years ago the pizza was amazing. Last time i was disappointed. The pizza taste was average and not at all like Italian one. Maybe it depends on pizzaiolo, maybe something else. Is it still Italian owned restaurant?

Had a quick dinner here last night and it was very nice. The pizza was tasty, atmosphere, music all very pleasant. The waitress had the best English I have encountered here in the Czech Rep. in the 6 years I've been here.

On a good day one of the best places to eat in Brno, other times it's still pretty good. Reasonably priced and good quality, service can be inconsistent.

We had salad for starters which had plenty of colour and dressing, followed by thin crispy pizza with generous and tasty toppings. Mine came with plenty of porcini, not just one or two bits! The tiramisu is absolutely amazing!

The venue, in the vicinity of the prestigious and breath taking Mahenovo Divadlo Brno theatre, offers a welcoming environment for a special occasion with friends and family, for a romantic date as well as other events such as meetings, marketing presentations, private parties, corporate dinners, fashion shows and weddings. The modern style and low light, the elegant surrounding and the design furniture with green and cream leather chairs help creating a special and cosy atmosphere. The menu is quintessential italian as it is its respect for traditions and it presents the opportunity to rediscover unique and authentic dishes blending the love for italian cuisine together with the demands of local clients. The rich and meticulously selected menu card comprises a broad selection. It may be hard to decide what to order when, among the mouth-watering choices, delicious pizzas, fresh pasta, fish delicatessen, but also bruschetta, risotto and yummy desserts stand out. The bartenders serve at the tables if you fancy an 'aperitvo' as a convivial start of your evening out. Our staff will welcome you and make you feel at ease. They will promote a genuinely pleasant atmosphere which will improve your experience of the meal. To meet the demands of all our customers, we can accommodate 90 guests in two separate dining rooms, completly no smoking, provided with air condition and free Wi-Fi connection.
