We came here for a quick lunch and the food here is incredible! The owner is so sweet and really went beyond out of her way for us. She makes you feel super welcome and the service was so quick. The thick crust pizza tastes super good and is probably the best I've ever had! I would recommend this place... More

We'd heard about it and went to check it out. It's kind of hidden back off Del Prado but I guarantee once you find it you won't forget how to get there. Planned on getting some chicken parm to give to friends. Walked out with a huge box of enough food to have for several meals! Along with that, before... More

Best NY/NJ style pizza around. Just like pizza back home in Jersey, great sauce and perfect crust. Cannoli's are amazing. Everything is homemade and authentic Italian. Run by nice Italian family who treat their guests like family. Can't wait to come back and try other Italian specialties.

We had a carry out order and enjoyed the food for two days. Its not cheap but it is delicious. If your in the Cape Coral area STOP and enjoy. Owners were very helpful and... More

Based on Tripadvisor reviews I tried Leone's cheese pizza and the Eggplant Parm. Both were delicious. The pizza had a wonderful crust with a slight crunch, the sauce with perfect herb seasoning, not harshly acidic tasting; can't say enough good things about it. No bitterness or heavy breading with the eggplant either. Will definitely be back.

Leones has the BEST PIZZA in Florida! We are originally from NJ and have been in search of great pizza. This is the closest to Jersey pizza and you will not be disappointed! We cannot wait to go back and try everything else and to top it off the owners are super sweet! Great prices too!

As transplants from NJ it was a pleasure to find this place. The owners are originally from NJ, and used to have a business at the Jersey shore, and the food brings back great memories. The dishes are all home made, and you will not be disappointed. Nothing fancy, shorts and a tee shirt will do just fine here.

We visit Mama Rosa every time we come to the Cape. Fresh ingredients and old school homemade food makes this place a gem! We have loved everything we have tried. Best thing about Leone's is the family that runs it. LOVE!!!

This is a small Italian deli and specialty shop which is off the beaten path but the food is fantastic and like homemade. They also serve excellent Pizza and subs at lunch and going there is like visiting a small Italian deli in the cities of the Northeast
