It's ironic that the kitschy pizza joint with 1950s flair is surrounded by a white-picket fence, since most of its patrons and employees are far from conventional. College students, especially the pierced and tatted kind, flock to the Gainesville landmark not only because it's cheap but because it has the best pizza in town. Available in thick or thin varieties, by the pie and, of course, by the slice, Leonardo's pizza comes in a handful of varieties (like veggie, pepperoni,
Greek, and spinach tomato). It also offers calzones, salads, and pasta such as baked ziti and fettuccini Alfredo, with no non-pizza entrée over $8.95.
