About: With the same owners as Leonardo's and Bistro 1245, Leonardo's 706 offers the classiest ambiance of them all. Family owned and operated since 1973, the restaurant features local's artwork on the walls and uses fresh, local grown ingredients in its California and Mediterranean cuisine.
On Monday's at 6:30 p.m. and Thursday's at 7:30 p.m., Leonardo's 706 offers a jazz night featuring Marty Liquori and friends.
Review: Leonardo's 706 is a great place for groups. They have a private room that can seat over 40 people. I have attended an etiquette dinner in that room, and even with 35 people ordering at the same time, the food was brought out quickly, the service was excellent and the food was delicious.
I have tried the eatery's pasta and pizza items, as well as soups and salads. Everything is good, but their pizzas are my favorite. Leonardo's 706 offers gourmet pizza options, my favorite being the BBQ chicken pizza. It is pricey for the portions, but the food is wonderful. One thing I will suggest is that you stay away from is the crab cakes.
