Description: Leonardo's is a small, family owned restaurant, Yuka and Leo have been in hospitality for more than 20 years all together. Our Menu is quite small only because we work only with the freshest products possible. For the same reason we change our menu very often, to try new flavours and recipe. The restaurant is open for dinner 7 nights a week.

Staff fantastic and highly recommend fillet steak with mushroom sauce. Divine. Cheesecake was fantastic so light it was untrue. Doughnuts could be for two people. Magnificent restaurant.

We had a reservation with friends. The reception was friendly but there was a bit of a delay in taking orders.
On the plus side, the flounder and Tagliatelli dishes were very good. I had the Pork Belly. The meat was tasty but the skin was far too salty. Also the cabbage salad lacked a good dressing.
Both people who had the Pannacotta felt it was too sweet.

We were able to get a reservation at this restaurant, our hotel said it was good. I had the lamb and my wife had the lasagna. Great Food, good service and a good wine menu..

Located in Eat street. We had the bread sampler first -excellent! Then our entrees were “traditional”, handmade- just super tasty and good. I had the Tagliatelle alla Carbonara. Super good. I’m sorry, I don’t recall what my husband had but he was equally happy. Good attentive service but not overbearing. And they made my hubby an iced tea.
Recommended and I would look forward to going back if I was in Rotorua again.

It was bad enough that after arriving at the restaurant and reading the menu, we had to wait ages for the waitress to take our order. When we tried to order our choices, we were told that they were out of - fish, steak, pork, lamb and lasagne - just about the whole menu was affected. We had booked, so it was not as though we not expected. People arriving after us were subjected to the same experience. Surely they could have told their customers that they were practically out of food when they first arrived, giving them and us the choice of leaving or staying.
