If you love pizza and any Italian food then you should definitely try theirs because its the absolute best from any other pizza place here in Berea

Yum! Great spot for casual Italian dining. Salads, sandwiches, pizzas, and traditional Italian entrees offered. Very reasonably priced.

Had a sub sandwich, cup of soup, and coffee. Friendly staff, decent prices. Since everything is cooked to order, except the soup, you will have to wait a little bit. Food was hot and tasty.

As always, Papa Leno's was worth the trip. The Philly Chicken sandwich was flavorful and abundant, as usual. The baked spaghetti was tasty. The fettuccine Alfredo was scarfed up. The bread sticks were a little overdone, but still good. We will be back!

Great place to eat with many options on the menu. Seating is plenty for large groups with great views of beautiful Berea College. Great pizza and the best fries in Madison County. I highly recommend!
