It took the Mama around 10 minutes to make. Why? “Because the sandwich was five inches tall, Full of sausage, sauce, onions, peppers and homemade mozzarella. Mama sausage is slightly spicy, and sort of like hard salami, with lots of chunks of fat. It also comes with homemade sauce. “I don’t know what is in the sauce. I don’t CARE... More

Being in Cape Coral it's hard to find good pizza, thankfully there's Leone's. Pizza is really NY style. Homemade sauce and meatballs and sausage. They have regular and Sicilian. If you're from up North and you haven't had the pizza here yet, what are you waiting for? Mama also makes homemade soups and pasta dishes while her son's makes outstanding... More

We went here for lunch, 4 of us. We ordered two 16-inch pizzas. We could have gotten by with just 1 pizza because they are huge! But they are delicious! We will have leftovers for a couple of days. The atmosphere feels like a whole in the wall, but the customer service is great. Mama was at the cash register... More

We visited for lunch today as we ran errands prior to vacation. Mama prepared a fantastic Chef's Salad - more than three people could eat. I had pizza - pepperoni and plain cheese. Delicious! The conversation with other diners on the family style tables just added to the enjoyment of the meal. After, we were given a tour of the... More

Really want to love this place as the people here are so great!!! Mama is so wonderful. The pizza is the gem here, harkens back to its roots on the Jersey boardwalk, with its speckled charred crust and great blend of cheese and sauce. We also had the Italian sub combo and the meatball parm sandwhich. Neither a standout, especially... More

We came here for a quick lunch and the food here is incredible! The owner is so sweet and really went beyond out of her way for us. She makes you feel super welcome and the service was so quick. The thick crust pizza tastes super good and is probably the best I've ever had! I would recommend this place... More

We'd heard about it and went to check it out. It's kind of hidden back off Del Prado but I guarantee once you find it you won't forget how to get there. Planned on getting some chicken parm to give to friends. Walked out with a huge box of enough food to have for several meals! Along with that, before... More

This is a small Italian deli and specialty shop which is off the beaten path but the food is fantastic and like homemade. They also serve excellent Pizza and subs at lunch and going there is like visiting a small Italian deli in the cities of the Northeast
