The city doesn’t need more Italian restaurants at this point - especially Italian restaurants in hotels - but everything at Leonelli is good. It’s also all stuff you can find at a lot of other Italian restaurants. We like the chicken liver mousse and the spinach lasagna with bolognese, and the space is very nice, with high ceilings, green banquettes, and a relatively quiet dining room.
