Great food, warm, friendly atmosphere

We were staying right next door to Trattoria 4 Leoni so went there our first night in Florence--and enjoyed it so much that we went there on our last night as well. On both occasions the service was superb, with our waiters patiently explaining the menu in English. There were 5 of us each time, so... read more

We were recommended to this restaurant and the pasta dish with sausage meat was excellent. However, the dish that my husband chose was not great - a seafood soup (perhaps the wrong choice for Florence!!). The service was a little lacking so we ate and left.

My husband and I stopped off here on our way back down the hill from Piazzale Michelangelo (highly recommended). We sat and had our lunch outside in this small artisan square. The menu was all it Italian but our waiter spoke good English and looking at the food on the other tables (delicious) I would have been prepared to give... More

This place is a little off the beaten path but well worth the walk. We had the classic bistecca Florentine which was perfectly seasoned, and tasted like it just fell off the cow. The server made our night, reciting the entire menu in English for us and was as pleasant in handling all of our questions.

Staff from the La Scaletta Hotel highly recommended this place and I can see why. This restaurant is in the Oltrarno (across the Arno) area of Florence but it is worth the walk across the Ponte Vecchio! We visited twice in our 4 day stay! Our servers (Giovanni and Bajram respectively) both nights helped us with our selections and did... More

The popular restaurant has attracted positive reviews. A lot of visitors, but the waiters are efficient. It is best to order branded salads and steak! Never tasted so delicious steak. And for dessert, make cheesecake - it just melts in your mouth. Prices are absolutely reasonable, dinner for two with wine 50 euros! In general atmospheric and delicious!

Although we had reservation, we waited for nearly an hour to get seated.... The hostes was unprofessional, plus kept promising us to be seated within minutes!! Once we were seated, we had to wait for another 20 minutes, to see our waiter... The food was okay but define toy was not worth for at all........ Overall, it was a terrible... More

We had a very nice dinner here out first night in Florence. Reservations a must. My daughter who is studying abroad goes here often and loves it. We had the Florentine steak which was very well prepared. A neighborhood spot.

I lived in Florence 10 years ago and we used to come here for Florentine steak - it was wonderful... Atmosphere, food, staff - all fantastic. HOW TIMES HAVE CHANGED!! I'd like to start off by saying that this is the first ever bad reviews i've written - i really don't like writing something negative... But with this restaurant it... More

We dropped by one day in the hope of some coffee and desserts, but were rebuffed by a waiter saying "This is a proper restaurant, you cannot just have a coffee. Period." Note that the place was pretty much empty at the time, so it's not like we would take up the space intended for other customers. I recognize the... More
