In addition to two sides, entrees also come with a choice of soup or salad; I had the latter and Bill the former. It's a frequent special called "Aunt Vick's soup," though our waitress referred to it as "Italian wedding soup," and by that we knew there would be tiny meatballs as well as chicken and veggies in a chicken broth. Bill enthused about its hearty, jam-packed nature, thick with other ingredients than just the orzo.

I pondered the desserts: two kinds of cheesecake, two kinds of chocolate cake, a lemon cream cake, a peanut butter pie, and a coconut carrot cake ($7-$7.50). Our waitress told us that owner/chef Paul Mancieri and co-chef Robin Mason order them from a pastry vendor. That fact and our sated selves allowed us to forgo dessert this time.

Leo's is proud of brewing Lavazza coffee and of their valet parking on Friday and Saturday nights. So, it's a good bet that we'll find ourselves coming back, especially for the pizza and the many other items we didn't sample.
