Sat outside- great ambiance!
Great to see a place still providing a high level of service and quality food during staffing shortages and general population stupidity.
Absolutely delicious meals served professionally and efficiently in a delightful outdoor area. Highly recommend this wonderful restaurant.
Food was AMAZING!!! Service was exceptional as well
Outstanding service and the food was delicious. The vegan sausage and peppers dish was, for someone who isn’t even a vegetarian, awesome and I would order it again.
Cam is a wonderful waiter. He had a great attitude, was very attentive, and moved at our pace the whole night. The food was good, the ambiance was perfect and the drinks were exceptional!!
The whole experience was great. Making reservations was easy. I noted that this was pre-theater dining and the server Cam was super gracious about making sure we got everything in time to make our show. I had the chicken Marsala and it was prefect. Another diner loved their salmon piccata. The bruschetta appetizer was delicious with delicious fresh tomatoes. The place was packed on a Saturday but Cam managed to treat us like we were the only customers.
Great food and service was attentive and friendly. Outdoor areas beautiful. Parking across the street convenient.
Great meal awesome server!
Great food. Great service. Seated outside initially but flies were too much; staff eagerly and promptly accommodated a shift to an inside table. Cannot wait to come enjoy the rooftop patio once it cools down.
Dined outdoors and it was a beautiful evening. Service was prompt and food was excellent. Warm homemade bread, calamari and salmon piccata were all delicious and ample portions. Look forward to our next visit and worth the trip to Norfolk!
We came in with out a reservation around 8p and the 2 hostess told us it would be an hour wait and we should try 456 Fish across the street. We left and decided we would see if there were any late dinner reservations and to our surprise there was an 845p available. We booked it and came back and were seated at that time. The waitress was nice however the service was extremely slow. We waited 15-20min before the waitress came to the table. The calamari app was extremely salty. We waited 20-30min for our main courses and then another 30 min after finishing our dinner for the waitress to come back so we could pay and leave. We have been here before and service and food were stellar. Not sure I will be back after this experience.
Wonderful dishes; especially the poached shrimp and seared salmon dip with garlic pita (Chef’s Special)! Great ambience. Incredible service. Highly recommend.
Overall good first-time experience. The outside patio was nice. The service seemed lacking, not because our server wasn’t trying she just had too many tables. The food was good, not amazing, but I would definitely go back.
Best lasagna ever! Menu and selections were all great, we had appetizers, wine, entrees and dessert fantastic! Made reservation for 16 a month later before leaving
We went to Leone’s to celebrate our 21 Wedding anniversary and we had a fabulous experience. Our server was prompt, courteous and helpful with menu questions and suggestions. The food was amazing and as much as it makes me feel silly to say, my favorite dish was the Meatball appetizer. The sauce was incredibly flavorful and the meatballs were just perfect. Everything else was excellent but the meatballs really stood out! I’m already thinking about my next visit!!!
This was my first time visiting Leone's in Ghent Norfolk. One thing I dislike about the Ghent area is the lack of parking. Leone's has a small parking lot across from their establishment. This was a positive that we did not have to park on the street and walk to the restaurant.
When we arrived (on time) for our reservation we were pleasantly pleased to learn that the table was ready. In fact, we were given options of their back patio or the rooftop. It was a decent day humidity wise, in Norfolk, so we went for the rooftop. The hostess walked us upstairs and out to the rooftop. My jaw dropped as the scenery from pictures does this place's rooftop NO JUSTICE. The breeze, scenery, and vibes were undescribable!
Our waitress, Amy, was very knowledgeable about the menu and offered these first time customers some really good options. We ordered drinks and appetizers and Amy had them all to our table within a few minutes. She ensured all of our questions and concerns were answered with the most up-to-date information. When she was not sure on an answer she immediately went to her leadership to find out. She kept our drinks filled and kept a great check on us. Amy made a few menu suggestions in which I went with and was very pleased with everything we ordered.
If there is one thing I would suggest to anyone going to visit is to make earlier reservations so that you can have the pick of where you would like to sit especially if you want rooftop. I will be back!!
I probably won’t be back . Refer to my private note feedback
The service was great and the restaurant is a great choice for date night/special occasions.
Leones had a lovely atmosphere and the food was delicious. I was visiting a friend that I hadn't seen in a while and they were most gracious in not rushing us through our meal. I would highly recommend.
This was our first visit to Leone’s, and it will not be the last. Our server was very attentive and had a lovely demeanor. Unfortunately I am not good remembering names, but a lovely person from Eastern Europe. The salmon cakes were scrumptious; one of my favorite things to eat at home as well. Very light and served with arugula salad and 2 delicious sauces. I ordered salmon piccata, which was cooked just right, and my husband ordered the pork chop served with potatoes. We both enjoyed our meals. I tried a limoncello martini…well two really because the first was delicious. The cannoli was very good, but man we were stuffed and couldn’t eat dessert! Brought them home for the kids. I suggest visiting.
The food was amazing and delicious. Nice ambiance.
The food was good but not great for the price at all. I assume you’re paying more so for the location since it’s in downtown norfolk. I got the lobster fettuccine and honestly it was just okay. I preferred my appetizer more, which was calamari. I’ve definitely been to better Italian restaurants such as “Vinos” in Chesapeake. Perhaps we’ll try an entree instead of pasta next time, but at an Italian place, shouldn’t the pasta be the show?
We sat on the rooftop patio and had an amazing experience! Great food and drinks. Would definitely recommend to friends
Great food! Great calamari, good wine, Camilo dessert was good
Service was excellent. Food was amazing. My husband and I were able to split the ribeye. Perfect amount for seniors.
Hits the spot every time, never disappoints
Happened to stumble upon this restaurant and we are so glad we did! Amazing food and drinks, super great staff and the vibe all around is relaxing and nice. Perfect for a date night or meeting with friends! They also have a super cute outdoor seating area.
Excellent food and service. Very attentive.
Second vist and will definitely be back
Everything was perfect. Especially our waitress. She was what you’d want at a place like this. However, the manager not so much. At one point it started to rain, so they moved us inside. Pretty happy they were able to accommodate. But, He made a comment to me when I was trying to go out to my original table to grab something. We were both going through the door way at the same time. I stepped to the side and he told me to calm down. Sounds silly however I was just trying to go back to the table to grab my keys. Not sure why he would have said that or with the tone he had. When we got our food, both my wife and I felt our plates were too salty to eat. I also wasn’t sure as to why my shrimp pasta meal still had the tails. Granted I’m not a chef by any means but why I had to now pull the tails off my shrimp in a pasta dish was a sub-par preparation move. We let our waitress know that we were unhappy with the meal and she got the manager. When explaining why we were unhappy with the meal, he just grabbed our plates and left. Leaving the mitigation role to the waitress. Again, the waitress was awesome. My wife and I just decided to pay and leave. Also stating that we would pay for our meals we didn’t eat if in fact it was our taste buds that were in the wrong. They removed the meals from the bill anyway. To prove how awesome the waitress was, I tipped the waitress the cost of the meals. Again, food not so good, but her service was on point. Would I go here again? Absolutely. I’d give the place another shot. The ambiance was perfect, the menu was stacked with my favorite dishes. Honestly it was just the managers attitude that made me not want to pick another meal. We were told that they just got a new cook and that maybe why it was a little salt heavy. I would however still recommend this place to anyone. Maybe my experience or perception is a one off. I’d like to think it is.
Leone's has a wonderful and accommodating staff! Great food, great drinks and great atmosphere!
The duck was amazing. Our waiter was great. Def 10/10.
Awesome food and service 👍🏽👍🏽. We will definitely be back
I asked the server a few questions for her recommendation and she was very helpful. the entree was delish (Lobster Fettuccini). The caesar salad was just ok through. My recommendation for the team preparing the meals is to spend a little more time on the salads. The top Italian restaurants put their focus on every meal item. Making sure the experience meets and if possible over exceeds the customers expectations.
Christina was our server, hands down one of the most personable servers I’ve ever dined with and amazing service.
Everything was wonderful except the small room we were put in. The acoustics of the room were terrible. I couldn't hear my friends and they couldn't hear me. I think we would have had a better time if we could have carried on a normal conversation.
I have been a few times and LOVE this place. Definitely my go to Italian date spot. Every dish delicious and the weight staff is always so great.
My waitress had a nasty attitude. 0 customer service so she received a $0.00 tip. Food was good. Restaurant is nice.
