GAINESVILLE, Fla. (WCJB) - A well-known Gainesville restaurant will close after 47 years.

Leonardo’s 706 on University Ave. will close its doors for good due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Co-owners Steve Soloman and Mark Newman had plans to reopen when they initially closed back in April, however, they both ultimately decided to retire.

“Things change,” Newman said. “Its a great thing. It was our time.”

The restaurant was known for its popular Italian dishes, most notably its deep pan pizza.

“We feel this warm fuzzy feeling,” Solomon said. “This warm sense of gratitude to all of you in Gainesville that helped made our dream possible.”
