We have been in Montclair for few days and last night was the friendliest restaurant we have been too. We order pasta and both of our dishes were delicious. Definitely we will go back before we leave.

Really cute spot for some authentic Italian food, they have some really nice outdoor seating and the food is decent. You can bring your own wine which is super nice, the customer service is excellent and they are following all Covid guidelines. Definitely recommend this...place for a nice romantic dinner for a couplesMore

You’ve taken a turn for the worst! Our family has come here many times for special occasions, and it’s gone downhill. What did you do to your red sauce? It used to be decent, and now it’s dark, over seasoned, and tastes burnt. The first...time it was bad a few months ago we chalked it up to being a fluke and maybe a different chef for the night, but we came back a week ago and it was still bad. Why would you change it? Plus, the owner really shouldn’t be walking around without his mask on and your waitresses should stop putting their hands on your shoulder when they talk to you. We’re in a pandemic, wear the mask and do not touch anyone! Please bring the original sauce back from a few years ago. That was so much better!More

We couldn’t get a reservation at any of the better rated restaurants so we had to settle for this place. When we arrived at 7:30 it was almost empty. The wine ordering was interesting. We got a wine list and had to call a local...wine store who brought us the wine right away. My wife ordered pasta with vegetables and I ordered Chicken Marsala. The pasta was terrible, it looked like it was sitting in dirty dishwater. My chicken was cold, the sauce was tasteless and the potatoes were so burned they were black. Basically two inedible meals.More

This is everything a restaurant shouldn’t be and everything a bad restaurant is. So where to start. Before one eats there must be atmosphere and service. Leone’s has neither. The interior and the pandemic driven outdoor seating offer nothing to attract one in a town...ripe with choices of fine cuisine. And then there’s the food. Disgusting. We were served pasta that was anything but fresh with a sauce that seemed to have turned. The chicken dish we ordered included raw uncooked chicken and vegetables that were also undercooked and raw No management was available we were told. Couldn’t get water for our table despite multiple requests. This is a restaurant to avoid. Gordon Ramsey may have filmed a show here but when the circus left town they went back to serving what the animals left behind. Their food habits will kill someone if they’re not careful. Don’t walk, run!More

Went there wit 8 people for my mothers birthday, ordered the chicken parm with pasta. Not only did the pasta taste like it was cooked in dirty dish water, but the chicken was even worst tasting. When talking to the waitress about, she just stood...there and smiled like this wasn't the first time that she heard this. When you ask for the manager/owner, he just hides. If you want a better meat, go to Cuban Pete's or Ruthie's for pizza. My brother loves the place, but to me it "The Ptomaine Palace".More

A very average experience - surprising for Montclair. Wait staff not well trained. Told us Montclair public water was not good while serving us that water! Did not offer bottled alternative. Tasty pizza was served lukewarm while the restaurant itself was cold. Will not return.

Stayed at the MC autograph and had delivery to our room. Ordered the calamari, Cesar salad, shrimp Alfredo, beef short rib pasta and a pizza. It was all amazing for delivery. Next time we will dine in. Thanks again

We met family here for dinner. We shared the chicken orzo soup in which the little pieces of chicken were like rubber balls. My husband had veal Marsala which was fair. I had veal Milanese and the veal was hard to cut as the veal...was tough. We love Italian food, but not this food. Entrees were all priced under $20.00.More

I met a friend for dinner and we wanted a restaurant that had outdoor seating. We found this restaurant while walking around and were glad we decided to eat here. There is plenty of outdoor seating and the sidewalk is very wide here and it...is on a quieter side street so the atmosphere was quite nice. The food was classic Italian and was very good. The portions were large and the prices are very reasonable for Montclair. If you want really good Italian food at reasonable prices with plenty of outdoor seating, this is your place!More

We eat fairly regularly at Leone's -- I'd say twice a month. The food is quite good and authentically Italian. The pasta is always served al dente and the meats are cooked to order. Veal chops are on the regular menu and they are uniformly...good. There is a small "Specials" menu that sometimes includes an old favorite for Italian families: Sunday Sauce or Sunday Gravy. It involves a specialty pasta with a hearty red sauce, a meatball and a sausage with a healthy dollop of fresh recotta. If you grew up Italian, some variation of that was on your table every Sunday afternoon. Brings you back. The service is brisk and you can choose a sidewalk table in bustling Montclair or eat inside. My only negative about Leone's is that it can be a bit loud inside, especially if there's a large party nearby. Given the quality of the food and the reasonable prices, they often have large groups. It is a friendly local crowd though so it's not a deal breaker.More

Most of the original staff is gone. Micheal works there less. Took his tv out and now spends most of his time at a bar across the street.
