Papa Leono's Pizza is always a delight to visit. Staffed by BEREA College students, they try really hard to get everything right. The pizza tastes phenomenal, helping the students is always a joy. My favorite is the meat lover's pizza. Great pizza and wonderful atmosphere....More

First off, it cost $30 for me and my wife there was little portions not much taste. I would have been better off going to fazoli's.This is last time I will ever eat there and I use to love there food.

The food was a 3 .I would say it's a local place, it's a very small local college town. Customers wait in line to order, then find a table then....WAIT for order. Food was fine, I wouldn't go again.
