4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

A friend recommended this restaurant as 'great for ravioli' before travelling to Florence. We decided to try it on our last day for lunch. It wasn't difficult to find but was tucked away in a small square. When we arrived at lunchtime the restaurant was quite empty, we were worried we had made a bad choice, however within 20 minutes...

This is a great restaurant, which does not compromise its high culinary standards to satisfy the tourists. The dishes are varied, very tasty and the restaurants charm come from not pandering to the tourist. This is a must visit restaurant if you want high quality rustic Italian restaurant food.

As with alot of comments for this place I too was annoyed by the menu. They only offer an Italian version. This would be fine if that was accompanied by friendly staff who are happy to translate for you and make it part of the experience. This is not the case. You feel like you are on your own which...

Four of us had lunch at Trattoria 4 Leoni in June. Our waiter was informative and attentive. We were all pleased with our meals. This restaurant is a bit more expensive than others in Florence but worth the extra money!

It was our second time at 4 Leoni - first time we've been delighted, now - we were really disappointed. The waitress was rude and unhelpful. She even forgot to serve us bread. We ordered crostini misti for starters and I must say it was the first time we got stale bread in Italy. Really, few days before we got... More

Had lunch here, when visiting Florence. It's a bit out of the way, in a quiet piazza. The food was excellent, the waiters polite and knowledgable. The wine very good too. Well worth a visit if you are looking for somewhere to rest and eat after a day wondering around Florence.

We went on the recommendation of a friend. What a find! We had a table on the patio watching the beautiful square. Portions are larger than typical Florence, prices reasonable and our server, Rosselle, was a delight. Our appetizers alone would have been an amazing dinner; for mains we had osso buco in a white wine sauce and tripe. Both... More

RESERVATIONS are required and we made ours 4 months in advance. This is not a pretentious place however, it's just that good. We dined on the terrace and enjoyed a soft breeze that was essential on a warm summer night. Dine after dark and enjoy the evening activities in the little square this charming places sits on. We loved the... More

Brilliant atmosphere, great food. Make sure you book as they are turning people away. Plus, as an added bonus a guy who must be Stanley Tucci's brother is the Maitre D'Hotel! Awesome. Plus superb recommendation for wine.

Neighborhood Profile
Pitti
Pitti is a neighborhood characterized by art and history. Renaissance architecture such as Pitti Palace, which houses five museums alone, introduces visitors to the green lungs of spectacular Boboli Gardens. Any visitor can wander through statues, fountains, and panoramic viewpoints. Around the garden, treasures like the Museum of Natural History of the Specola and Villa Bardini guide guests through Florence as the cradle of the Renaissance. End the day with an aperitif in Piazza della Passera or the more romantic Forte di Belvedere, which offers an amazing panoramic view of the entire city.
