If I were lying on my deathbed and I could eat, Leonardi's pepperoni pizza and wings is all I would want. Enough said!

Completely Unprofessional 8/24/2011

I have been a customer of Leonardi's for YEARS!! I ordered a pizza and it was confirmed to be ready in 25 minutes....however when we arrived to pick it up there was no pizza!! After being told a pizza was not there for us due to their own negligence (of course they did not admit to this) they denied us the ability to reorder the pizza because they were no longer taking orders for the night although it was well over an hour left till close. I was extremely upset and my consolation was a simple ""Honey, we do not have your pizza here"". I am convinced they sold our pizza and would not own up to it!! Never again will I patronize this restaurant!! more

Absolutely amazing pizza! 6/15/2011

My boyfriend and I order from Leonardi's all the time and we absolutely love it! We usually get the cheese with pepperoni and half onion and it's incredible, we've also tried the white pizza and that too is deliscious! I grew up with Lanova's and Mister Pizza and I have to say, Leonardi's may have topped the list! more


No doubt the best pizza in Buffalo. I have tried many different places but none even come close. I will make the hour long round trip simply because they are the best. more

I no longer live in the area and myself and my family are desperate for great pizza like Leonardis! I'm pretty certain we wont even come close! more

Hector- semi-retire in Fort Lauderdale 2/2/2010

I left Bflo 31 years ago and still dream of your pizza as well as my husband who is from Puerto Rico and begs me to stop there even when we are staying by Kissing Bridge. I am always surprised to see the same guy behind the counter, even though my husband doesn't believe he was there cooking when I was a student at St. James. Please Hector- isn't it time you retire to sunny South Florida and share your pizza with the south? Pros: Still the best Cons: Nothing compares.... more

Best Pizza - Period 1/8/2010

I first met Hector when our sons were in the same cub scout troop. One of our fields trips was to Leonardis. Hector taught each of the boys how to make pizza. I found out then why Leonardis is soooo good. The sauce is a family secret handed down from the old country. The ingedients are all top notch and selected personally by Hector. The cheese is hand grated and the pepperoni is hand sliced. The boys really enjoyed that trip and even though it was 15 years ago I still remember how good the pizza tasted. We go back as often as we can but we sure wish there was a East Amherst location . . hint, hint. Pros: Quality and price - what else is there? Cons: Needs an East Amherst location as well more

Best pizza hands down! 6/17/2009

I really wish I can find a substitution here in Alabama for Leonardis. You should consider selling pizza online like your competitor (Lanova's). If you can share your pizza with the rest of the country, THEY WILL BELIEVE! Pros: Best pizza in town Cons: Moved away from the city more

Buffalo's Best Pie 1/4/2009

Please HELP! Moved south and can't live without Leonardi's Pizza for the SuperBowl. I grew up on Leonardi's and took it personal when they relocated to Amherst but made the short drive anyway whenever I had a craving. Only Leonardi""s can put half an onion on a pie and make it taste great. Mmm, Mmm!! I'm about to cry too. Pros: Call ahead for quick pick-up Cons: Bocce's Pizza is closer to the city more

Best of All! 6/13/2008

I worked there for a couple of years, and it's still the best in my book.\r Whenever I come in from Texas, I ""get some"".\r \r Joe more

Great Pizza, Family Friendly 3/27/2008

Now I really grew up on Leonardi's Pizza, his first store was at Mannhart and Bailey he sold pizza by the slice. We use to go up and buy slices all the time. Then be moved down by to Andover and Bailey by the police station. Thanks Hector for a great pizza, prices and lots of memories. Pros: Great food! more

If Superman was a pizza... 9/20/2007

...He would be a Leonardi's pizza. I use to work next Leonardi's when it was on Bailey. When sign changed to ""Avenue pizza"" It was a dark dark day. I saw people get back into thier cars and drive away. Now my job takes me all over the country. The only place where I can get a halfway decient pizza is in New York City. Im sick of small,skimpy,exspencive pizzas. I geuss if I never had a Leonardis pizza the others wouldn'd dissapoint me so much. Pros: the best pizza you can get Cons: recommand ordering ahead more

No other Pizza Compare!!! 8/12/2007

I grew up on Leonardi's pizza (the location was on Bailey Ave)... I left Buffalo 13 yrs ago and I didn't realize until I left the area how GREAT Leonardi's Pizza really was... I knew liked the pizza but, didn't realize I LOVED the pizza until I didn't have anymore and I had the pizza here... I live in the Tri-state area (PA, DE,NJ,MD)... I no longer order pizza... The pizzerias here (Delaware) has no idea how is make a pie... My first stop when I visit Buffalo is Leonardi's.... please please branch out to Delaware... Pros: Price, Friendly service Cons: more locations more

There is no other pizza 8/23/2006

We used to drive in from Cheektowaga down to Suffolk & Bailey to pick up Hector's masterpieces back in the early 70' could order either 1/2 or whole....double cheese and double pepperoni TO THIS DAY is the best pizza I ever had....wash it down with some ""pounders"" and life couldn't be better.\r \r I think I just started crying... Pros: VALUE Cons: No seating...but that's OK more

1st time - GREAT 7/8/2006

My daughter brought home a pizza from Leonardi's and shared it with mom & dad. It's something to die for. If there's such a thing as a ""hearty"" pizza this is it, no skimping on anything. A basic cheese & pepperoni doesn't get any better than this.\r \r Would recommend to anyone along with St. Angelo's depending on one's preference of flavor.\r more

Charlotte, NC has Buffanardi's 6/15/2006

If you miss Buffalo style pizza and you are in the Charlotte, NC area. Step over to Central Avenue and get Buffanardi's Pizza. It is the same as Leonardi's, not too mention a photo of Leonardi's store front displayed in the waiting area. The sauce is sweet and the pizza's are monstrous and so delicious. I believe they had to do a presentation and show Leonardi's their ideas and then Leonardi's gave them the recipe for the sauce. IT is THE BEST PIZZA IN CHARLOTTE, NC. I dont care what ANYONE SAYS!!! Pros: Great Sauce Cons: Buffanardi's a bit pricy, but when you dont have that luxury of good pizza i more

mmmmmmmmmmmmmm Leonardis 8/9/2005

I grew up down the street from the Baily locale and worked there scraping pans and slicing peperoni...I had a great time working with Hector/Louie and Anne. Sorry, getting far as rating the pizza...""IT WAS THE BEST FOOD I EVER HAD LET ALONE PIZZA!!!"" I'm down south now and I wax poetic and always tell everyone down here they don't know didly about pizza until they've had Leonardi's!!!! more

The Best Pizza 7/18/2005

I grew up on Leonardi's. It is the best pizza I have every tasted. I love their pizza so much, I have it once a week. No other pizzeria will compare. The customer service is out of this world. more

Canadian customer 7/7/2005

My family loves this place. Got to be hands down the best pizza (and chicken tenders!) around. We will go out of our way just to travel to Buffalo (from the suburbs of Toronto) to pick up some pizza and chicken from Leonardis. The Leonardis are super people as well. Very friendly and helpful. Pros: Reasonably priced, Friendly, Excellent service more
