    Party of 4, first time diners. Very impressed with the food, service and ambience. Definitely will return, looking forward to warmer weather and being able to dine on the inviting outside patio.

    I really wanted to like this place, but the food was fair at best. I agree with other reviewers that said they skimp on the sauces. A friend had lasagna and asked for more sauce. They brought her a tiny cup with about a tablespoon of sauce in it. Also, it seems like the chef wants to put cheese on everything. My chicken scallopini had cheese melted on top, very strange. And the veal marsala came with a cheesy pasta sauce which didn’t mix w/ the Marsala at all. They definitely need to work on their menu. Other than that the walls are empty, but space looks clean and new. Maybe this is just growing pains. Service was good.

    Decor is not appealing , it’s akin to a doctors waiting room . Sterile and like a school dining hall rather than an eatery . Carbonara with chicken ? No espresso . Pizza was burned . Sword fish was good along with the meat balls . But the menu needs a revisit desperately along with the menu . Service very good bar staff also . They are the only five stars out of that place

    We were served by the bartender who was very nice and helpful. We were warned by him about the soda, but attempted the off brand anyway, it was horrible. The chicken parm was so pale that it appeared the breading wasn’t cooked at all and was on top of a pile of noodles that were stuck together like they had been sitting under a heat lamp for hours. Bolognese was fine, again noodles were sticky like they were not fresh. Overall would not return.

    After a ho-hum experience, I decided to try again. My husband would not go back after our first meal here but I was taking my son out and thought I’d try again because you have a lovely location. The menu is simply uninspiring. Food was okay. So many other Italian restaurants in Charlotte with great food. Place was empty and a little sterile looking. I’m not sure what can fix this place that seems to have such potential but it needs something.

    Well it was quite the experience. Let me just say we left without getting our meal. Waited 30 mins for our app, then another 30 with no food showing up and finally called it a night. Staff overwhelmed and apparently they have kitchen staff walk out earlier that night/day. I would have liked to had known that the kitchen was in trouble prior to making/taking the time to sit there for 90 mins.

    Leo's Italian Social- Piedmont Town CenterResponded on January 16, 2023Danny, our sincere apologies for the bad experience you had at Leo's Italian Social. we had a very difficult day to say the least. we hope you give us another chance so we can give you a better experience.

    We had reservations tonight at 7:15 and we were seated at about 7:35-7:45. Our server was nice and attentive but unfortunately while looking at the menu she mentioned to me that they don’t she let me know that they do not have as many GF options as their website says they do. None of the pasta dishes were GF even though they say they offer GF pasta noodles and zucchini noodles as an option as well. Their pizzas were GF so I ended up ordering their pepperoni pizza with cauliflower crust and a Cesar salad with no croutons. The salad took almost an hour and a half to bring to the table and the pizza arrived at the same time the salad came. The Cesar salad dressing tasted weird and not fresh. The pizza taste like Digiorno pizza you get at the grocery store. I was so hungry waiting almost two hours that I ate both items but just because I was starving. After we finished our entrees our waiter didn’t even bother asking if we wanted desert and just asked if we were doing separate checks. Unfortunately with the long wait for our food and not great service, I do not plan on coming back to this restaurant.

    Leo’s exceeded our expectations. We have gone to Toscana monthly for years, and are usually disappointed when we try someplace new. Not this time! The food was fantastic. I had the lasagna and it was a huge portion (fed me the next day at lunch). It was rich and creamy. The last time I ordered it at Toscana I was so disappointed as it was dry and crunchy like it had been way over cooked. The craft cocktail menu at Leo’s was fun and we tried several before switching to vino. My husband had the swordfish and ate every bite. The bread was like a light cake…exceptional. We did go early as it was a last minute decision to go out to dinner. Since they have removed all walls and it’s an open 2 story ceiling I can imagine it is quite loud during prime time. I honestly don’t usually return to a restaurant where I can only talk to the person sitting directly beside me due to noise so that’s TBD. We were told to try the meatball appetizer when we go back.

    We made a New Years eve reservation weeks ago and were excited for our first visit to Leo’s. The restaurant was nice and modern but a little loud. The menu looked fabulous! The calamari and ancini were delicious as was the chic picatta and ravioli. Our server was attentive at first, but then she became snippy when one of our six asked for a substitute pasta. Two of us got the pesto chicken and it was tough and rubbery w/overdone pasta. The server didn’t check back soon enough to address it and then when she did, she didn’t wait for an answer, so we had to mention it right before getting the check.

    Cool modern space, handy parking nearby. Table ready on time; attentive waiter; everyone liked the food - salmon, lasagna, eggplant (needed a bit more sauce but crisp and tasty), and rigatoni. Butter cake was delicious but very rich so 1 piece was enough for a taste for 4.

    The restaurant is basically a huge open room with minimal decor and gray walls. It’s very cold and uninviting. Seems like it’s not finished. The service was good but the food was just okay. Not worth going back. What a bummer. Brios was so much better.
