Contrary to popular belief, when the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie, that's a lawsuit. Enjoy Italian cuisine without fear of physical reprisal with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Italian fare and beverages at Leo's Ristorante, located in Bristol.
A family-owned sustenance staple for more than 60 years, Leo's Ristorante's homey redbrick exterior greets families to generous portions of homemade Italian and American comfort-food dishes culled from fresh ingredients. Leading off a stacked menu is the hearty New England clam chowder ($4.59 cup, $5.59 bowl), which sets the table for wholesome, heavy-hitting handhelds such as the chicken parmesan sandwich ($7.99 small, $8.99 large) and the Big Red meatball sub ($6.99 small, $7.99 large). The tortellini a la Carolina ($15.99) surrounds its tricolored, circular cheese pasta with grilled chicken and a light butter sauce, while the spaghetti a la Gina's ($12.99) savory red-sauced noodles send forks into a pasta pirouette. Enjoy a large, one-topping pizza ($12.99), adorned in culinary confetti such as pepperoni or olives, or wrap taste buds around the Milano panini ($8.99), containing grilled eggplant, smoked mozzarella, fresh tomatoes, and garlic olive oil.
Leo's underscores its family-friendly atmosphere with dishes named for family members of the restaurant's owners. The restaurant frequently hosts music and theater events, allowing diners to slurp up spaghetti while their eyes and ears dig into delicious sights and sounds.
