To Night, I have yet again had a lovely night out , at the best kept secret LEONARDOS ITALIAN RESTAURANT in Buckhurst hill .
Last year after shopping at Waitrose a few doors down, my husband and I decided to pop in for the first time. Lovely Warm and Welcoming a true delight.
This has been a family owned Italian restaurant for 4 years, with new owners who have been in the Restaurant business for many years before buying this restaurant and their experience shines through. .
Its very pretty and clean inside, with tables on the left and right hand side with a small bar at the back. An exciting menu along with the specials board. My son says its the best pasta that he has ever had.
I love the steak which comes with side veg and fried potatoes yummy!.
The prices are very reasonable and they have an excellent wine list .The house red and white wine are both excellent so much so that we bought a bottle of the Red home.
They are very good with children and I've noticed that they have a lot of regulars, now I am one of them...I would recommend this restaurant for a romantic night out, a family dinner, or for business.
They do get busy so try to book.
There is parking on the street
We popped to Leonardos after a craving for some good Italian food, and we were not disappointed.
The food here is fantastic... The only things I would have preferred is some more ambient music, and fresh breadsticks hense the 4 stars.
The staff were very friendly, and the decor was great.
I recommend the puttenesca entree and chocolate ice cream desert, I'll be thinking about that dinner all week!
Bijou Italian restaurant with excellent fresh fish courses. Friendly service and first class, basic Italian cooking. Good for family, friends or a romantic tete-a-tete!
