Leonardo's Italian Restaurant in Vestavia will always be one of my favorite places to dine in the Birmingham area. Mike and I had our wedding reception there almost eight years ago. We had a morning wedding and then everybody went to Leonardo's for lunch. It was wonderful!
A cozy little place that serves lunch and dinner, offers a full bar with live music nightly, Leonardo's is a real treat!
Our anniversary will be Tuesday, but we decided to celebrate with dinner at Leonardo's a few days early. I am so glad we did because we got to join in the fun as the restaurant and staff celebrated Halloween.
Soft piano music played by Mario added to the romantic (and a little bit spooky) atmosphere of the evening. We were amazed they he could play with those gloves on!
There were some other characters running around too......we spotted Elvis, who was one of the servers.
There are so many choices on the menu and I had my usual hard time making a decision.. I finally settled on Lasagna and Mike chose Veal Saltenboca, which he always enjoys. My portion was huge, but so good I could have eaten every bite. We finished by sharing the Tiramisu. Yummy!
When you visit Leonardo's, be sure to try the rolls. They are to die for! Don't fill up on them though (they will keep bringing them), you will want to save plenty of room for your meal.
