I would recommend Leci's to anyone. The food and service is superior to any place I have eaten in the area. Great staff !

What a gem! I ordered take out and was blown away. The service was top notch. I ordered a 10" deluxe pizza,house salad, and a side of lasagna. The dressing on the salad was to die for. It was a rich,creamy Italian with fresh herbs and anchovies(just a touch). The pizza was delicious and on a thin, but well made crust. The lasagna rivals my own, and I think had some ground veal in it. The sauce was wonderful and the lasagna didn't fall apart when you cut into it. I'd go back in a heartbeat, and recommend it. When you get take-out this good the stay and dine has to be better. Although I can't imagine better food!

Looking for a nice italian meal I stumbled upon this nice lil bistro and I was pleasantly surprise about the quality of the food that I was served. The food was excellent and the staff were very professional and attentive to all my needs.

I would recommend this restaurant to anyone that is looking for an excellent italian meal at an affordable price.

I travel and eat in small one of a kind restaurants often. This location was just the third of worst but most expensive of the three. I and my husband were relieved to finally leave this place after horrible service that was also VERY slow. Other guests around us were also complaining of how slow and unattended the staff were. Our order started with water. We waited 20 minutes just to get that. When it arrived it tasted as if they went to the bathroom to fill our cups. I then asked for 2 bottles of water, waiter tells me it's $2.50 per bottle and I assume it's Evian or similar. Nope it's some cheap brand highly marked up but it sure did have a cleaner taste. When we make our order for food it takes even longer for the appetizer and our main dishes to arrive. What was meant to be an hours worth of time took two and half hours. This is a place that is highly over charged as it's food was the foulest. The red sauce is very bitter while also lacking spice. The cannoli dish was ruined by the inability to serve this dish hot. The plate came with a chill but giving how long my table was left waiting for food I was not willing to take the risk to send it back. If you eat here beware that service is horrible, slow, and uncaring. The prices are over the head and the food is of NO QUALITY!

I must say the reason i still go to this spot is for the bartender, Momma is one of the nicest, kind people i have ever spoke to across the bar. This is another one of the SPOT's that we gather after work to unwind for a long work week. The food is good also. I would recommend anyone to go and check this spot out if you are in the SouthPoint area..

Most Fine Lunch Ever!!!

I decided to try out the Grouper Picatta which although it wasn't on the lunch menu was still created by the chef and WOW. I have just had the best lunch ever. They started by bringing out Italian bread with herbs and oil for dipping, then a delicious antipasto salad, and then the grand finale grouper picatta!!! Amazing, and under priced, true gourmet Italiano cuisine. Props to the chef, staff, and quality atmosphere and food. I'll be back on a regular basis.

Best Italian Food in Jax

This place has the best food in town! Even the Lunch Buffett is only 7.95 and the Chef makes eveything from scratch as well as he changes it up daily. Bring your appetite! If you have not had dinner here yet, I highly recommend it! The staff, food and happy hour are Great!

I highly recommend Joseph's because they have the BEST grouper picatta. I really like their manicotti and calzones. Even the filet mignon served with roasted potatoes and fresh vegetables really rocks with flavor!
