Leone's Subs

Passed this place in Somerville today and the garish sign intrigued me. Is it any good?

    Great neighborhood place for Sicilian slices. I think they beat out Pinocchio's - which sort of holds the unofficial this-side-of-the-river-square-slice trophy. At lunch they have a great variety to choose from. Skip the round pies. Haven't tried the subs because I always have a Sicilian hankering to address.

      I also like the pizza, its been a favorite of my group of friends for years.

      I got a steak bomb there once and it was good and greasy (in a good way).

        love the square pizza... I cannot get enough of it. That is the only thing I have ever had from there. I may have to try their eggplant after reading rec's here.

          Haven't been for awhile, but when I worked next door, they had excellent subs. Loved their steak and cheese sub, meatball was really good also.

            Leone's has excellent subs, the best eggplant sub I've ever had in fact. They have a bunch of weird combos with it like eggplant/italian cold cuts, eggplant/sausage, and eggplant/steak, the first two being my favorite. This was my favorite sandwich in the world for a couple of years. The eggplant is home made as are the meatballs, sauce (terrific) and everything else.

            I loved their sicilian slices for a while when I was younger but the sauce is a little sweet for me nowadays.

            That said, their spinach slice (with garlic/no sauce) is excellent, but only available during lunch time (unless you order a half tray).

            The one thing I haven't tried are their dinner specials, which aren't on the menu and vary from week to week. I think they're only available on Friday (could be the weekend, not sure). They seem to be pretty popular.

              I've only had their Sicilian pizzas which are very good. Very cheesy slices on a thick, slow-raised crust. It's hard to find a good Sicilian slice in this town. I haven't tried their subs. Friendly owner and it's cash only. Certainly worth a try in my opinion. If you're looking to feed a group of people cheaply, this is a good option. They sell their pizzas by the whole and half-sheet.

                Try Imperial in Brighton. Their regular pizza is only so-so, but they have my favorite Sicilian slice in town.

                so where did you end up for the wakefield/stoneham/melrose soiree?
                just curious.
