Leonardo’s Kitchen is a quaint sandwich and pizza shop, located in a converted gas station. Characteristic of its Hill neighbors, the restaurant specializes in St. Louis-style Italian dishes, such as pastas, sandwiches and pizzas. Meatballs are the house specialty, and Leonardo’s Kitchen and Wine Bar gives diners several opportunities to enjoy them -- on the “Hey Bauly” pizza, “naked” with a variety of sauces or as the must-try meatball sandwich. For this version, Leonardo’s packs the moist, tender meatballs between two slices of garlic bread, smothers them with fresh tomato sauce and basil pesto then tops them with melted provolone cheese. The hot Italian beef sandwich is another signature dish: Gravy-drenched roasted beef and giardiniera are served atop a soft roll, like an Italian version of a French dip. Pizzas fall between St. Louis and New York style -- hand-tossed and thin, but with heft and crunch. Leonardo’s piles on the toppings. Its veggie pizza gives diners two days' worth of vegetables. This cozy little spot may no longer be filling up cars, but diners will leave overstuffed with tasty casual Italian food.
