So good! I enjoy getting the vegan pizza option and a salad. Family loves their pizza. The dough knots with dipping sauce are worth the trip on their own.Just had the butternut soup last night for 1st time. It was really thick and creamy. Our...go to place for pizza.More

Grabbing a slice for lunch is good but it takes a minimum of 30 minutes to order, wait, then eat the building isn’t in the best of shape. Could be a little cleaner. But I would eat there again, I recommend the “Spin Tom”

The service wasn’t amazing, but the pizza was great. They had a lot of toppings/styles (as you can see in the photos). We had their mushroom and their meatball parmigiana. We also ordered a side salad and it was awesome! It had a nice balsamic...dressing, sprouts, carrots, garbanzo beans, so fresh!More

Ate here while visiting as an away fan for a football game. The pizza was fine, & the price was ok. I had read other reviews that said the garlic knots were famous & not to be missed, so I ordered some. They were one...of the most bland things I've ever eaten. Even with the sauce they gave us, it was like eating slightly-cooked bread dough.More

Four of us ordered several different things. The greek salad was horrible. It is usually pretty hard to mess up a greek salad but this was very odd loaded with chick peas (does not normally come on a greek salad), no peppers or onions, just...odd and not good. The pizza crust was burned and hard as a rock. Service was terrible. Wouldn't go back.More

Passed by this place with my parents who used to eat here 40 years ago. It Hasn’t changed much. The pizza is as good as ever. We ate the deep dish thick pizza today. Sausage and the Pepperoni. The crust makes this awesome. Crunchy on...the bottom. Fluffy through the middle and soft and juicy on top. And they are generous with the toppings as well. The staff are friendly. The menu is plentiful. Bathrooms out back could use some love but otherwise this place is great. I know where I’ll be having my slice next time I pass through #Gainesville Keep it up guys. I recommend and will return Get in my Belly!!!!!More

Tried the meat lovers thin crust pizza, was underwhelmed. Downtown location is a plus, but so many better choices. Would not return.

Was in the campus area on business and thought I'd try a local pizza. I was impressed with the ingredients list, but was in the mood for something simple so I opted for a good old fashion cheese pizza. It was a week night and...not busy at all, so my simple pizza should have been a quick one. I waited about twenty minutes for my to go pizza. I was staying about 10 minutes away before I could dig in. The pizza was overflowing with cheese, in a bad way, consuming the crust and the box. In a nut shell, it tasted like wet cardboard slathered in cheese. Couldn't even taste or see any sauce. This was the only pizza I ever remember throwing away after a few slices. My friend on campus where i was staying didn't want it either.More

Leo's has been I think the shining star of Gainesville's quick eat pizza joints for years (i've been going for about 10), and their slices and their service never disappoint. Owned by the same as 706, Bistro, and its Milhopper equivalent, Leo's by the Slice...lives up to its finer dining friends by offering huge slices with big, original tastes. I would recommend the Greek, deep dish, or the meat lovers, but seriously you can't go wrong, especially with their slice and salad deals. Their Garlic nots are basically worth killing for.More
