Wonderful little pizza place in little strip mall. Delicious thin crust pizza. Take out only and they always seem to be very busy. Best to go there in person as the phone is always busy.

The staff was a but unpleasant, either due to it being the end of the season or the fact that their AC was not keeping the place cool. On the other hand their pizza was really good. We'd go again.

A tasty pizza, carryout only during this Covid-summer. We ordered the Deluxe large. Tender crust, fresh toppings, and lots of cheese. The perfect choice for a family lunch at the beach!

Tried calling during the Week of 11/12/2019 to 11/19/2019. Finally got a message the last time I called that they were closed and would reopen on 11/22/2019. But we won't be here then. We were staying in Camp Hataras in Waves, NC.

It's all about the crust for me. Leonardo's makes a thin, crispy crust which doesn't get soggy. The sauce is great, too. You can't go wrong ordering a pizza from this place.

Dropped by for a carry out pie and was pleasantly surprised by not only the staff by by the taste of the pizza. The crust had a hint of sweetness to it and the sauce had just the right amount of kick to. The toppings...were generous. Will be back!More

We stopped here after traveling all day from Pennsylvania. When we got to the door it said take out only okay fine. We went in to place our order we wanted three subs and a pizza and the lady behind the counter informed the sport...were really busy I don't think we can do that. But the cook said no that's fine. Okay so we ordered the food got, the food we came home to eat, the pizza was not very good at all, and the subs barely had any meat on them. Very very very disappointed. We will never be back again!More

I went to Leonardo's because Lisa's Pizzeria was closed - best decision for us, in my opinion. I ordered a large pizza (for 4 people). That gave us two large slices each, which was perfect for a light dinner. It had a lovely thin crust,...and was DELICIOUS!!! (1/2 was just cheese and sauce - the other 1/2 was sausage and mushroom.) All four diners loved it. By the way, two of us went to order it, and waited while it was prepared for take-out. They had a great movie trivia quiz on the wall that kept us totally occupied while we waited!!! I'll go back there again.More

Wasn’t where we had planned to eat but stumbled upon this place. Food was very good, service was less than par in the beginning. Towards the end, the waitress snapped out of her “funk”. If the attitude we received initially wasn’t there, this would have...been rated a 4 or 5. As mentioned, I’d rate the pizza a 4 or 5. Overall, I would give it a second try given the opportunity. Everyone has a bad day.More

We came at 6:55pm knowing that it was scheduled to close at 7. Like many others, we were met by an unfriendly waitress. But she allowed us to come in and eat. We came a few weeks before the summer school break, so there were...very little people in Waves. There was no one in Leonardo's Pizza. But service was quick and the music was very good, if you like the 70's and 80's music. We all did, my wife and two daughters. The pizza wasn't best, comparable to many fast food chains. But we had just arrived and we were hungry. The crust, which is my basis for a good pizza, could be better. But the pizza toppings were tasty. Although she seemed to be in a bad mood, the waitress gave us everything we asked for and even came around a couple of times to see how we were doing. The guy behind the counter was much friendlier. He was much more interested in conversing with us.More

Stopped in for a beer and quick meal with husband and two grandgirls. It was around 5 o'clock and we were the only ones there. Must be just starting the tourist season they didn't have some of the items on the menu but what they...had was delicious. The girls had chicken and fries hubby and I had cheese steak sandwiches. They were brought out in a timely manner, were hot and taste great. The server was a little offish at first but warmed up as we conversed. Great place, love The Beatles and oldies music. Will return to get pizza.More

Our favorite pizza place--Lisa's Pizza--was packed so we decided to give this place a chance. What a mistake. The waitress was so, so rude with zero people skills. She rushed us to order and looked appalled when we didn't know what we wanted right away....We were the only customers and asked her to turn down the blaring music--she acted like we'd asked her to rearrange the entire restaurant. In top of that the pizza was bland and there was no free water--we had to pay for water bottles. Never, ever going back there again.More

We were actually going to another Pizza place in Waves, but it was so jam packed, we said no thanks, then remembered this place in the Plaza. We walked in, were seated immediately and placed our order. The pizza is THIN Crust New York Style....So all those people saying it's cardboard, get a grip, it's a style of pizza, not a chain. If you want pan Pizza, go to Pizza Hut. The sauce was actually really good, plenty of toppings and it was brought out piping hot and ready to eat. The service was excellent and very attentive. So happy we found this gem on by the beach. It's also very tastefully decorated inside and CLEAN. I CAN'T tell you how many places we were where the air vents were just caked in filth and just plain dirty. Loved it, the perfect way to top off our week.More
