I am in love with the Chicken Parmigian. It is enough food for two days. The price is very reasonable to. The service is great too. This is where I go when I visit Chicago now.

Sorry but I had the worst experience here. Took my friend here for her graduation lunch and the owner was so rude, servers were purposely slow I felt and just such a terrible experience. We decided to take the food to go because we weren't welcome, and felt we got mean stares on our way out. I don't know what it was but I will never go back unless the owner is different.

Leona's is a great place for lunch or dinner, and they even have a banquet hall upstairs. Their food and service is great, and my personal favorite is the dessert...sometimes we went just for the sundaes!!

I went here with a business associate because other locations I have been to don't mind if you eat and then spread the table with paperwork.

We both live in the area so we went here for an early lunch and asked the staff to please turn down the music since it was just loud enough to be annoying. (We were only one of 2 sets of people in there at the time.)

We ate; The food was wonderful as usual for this chain, and then the music suddenly went up x3 after 2 more tables had been seated.

Those people all had to start to speak much louder to hear each other even across the table so suddenly it went from tolerable to ?We have to leave?.

For a restaurant known for it?s food and not for a ?Party Atmosphere? the volume of the music is perplexing.

I will go back, but I will sit in the front room where it seems like the speakers are fewer.

Leona?s food has been consistently wonderful no matter if you are along the gold coast, in Wrigleyvill, or by UIC. I have yet to go to a Leona?s where I have come away disappointed by the food.

Pros: Calamari is SPECTACULAR, food is great!

Cons: With people having to talk over the music, too loud to work.

My team ordered delivery from Leona's one night on call; the food was delivered quickly and still hot. Most people got pizza, and they all said that it was delicious. I had the roasted mushroom ravioli; the sauce was awesome, but the filling could have been more flavorful, and I wish it had come with garlic bread instead of the plain baguette. I would probably order from here again though.

It began with a menu in which evey other page was not food, but brief notes from various employees of Leonas - like I care. There are no soda refills (CHEAP!) and the menu is difficult to sort through. The waiter "put some bread in" for us. 10 minutes later the bread came. Not sure where he put it "in", but it wasn't the oven (it came out room temp). Still, bread was nice a crusty texture despite average taste. The accompanying marinara was tasty with a nice punch, but the herb spread was dull and powdery tasting with no flavor. Calamari was the appetizer, which was excellent, especially when combined with the marinara. The main courses (our group ordered a variety) were generous, but were average in taste and lacked anything that would distiguish them from middle-of-the-road italian widely available. The service was spotty at best.
