“Fun visit”
Reviewed March 4, 2013

We have been here as a family and with a large group of friends. The service is not always what one would prefer but the food is good. It is surely worth a visit to this tiny piazza trattoria. Nothing draws me back though. Go, you'll probably like it.

“Wonderful lunch”
Reviewed March 2, 2013

We stopped here for lunch simply because it was lunch time. We were warmly welcomed by our waiter and I have no memory of what the three others ate because I was so caught up in enjoying the pasta purses stuffed with ricotta and pears in a tallegio sauce -- with a sprinkle of finely chopped radicchio as decor. I would return for that alone! We all enjoyed a mid November outdoor lunch and the price was moderate. All of wich explains how busy this place was despite being hidden away south of the Arno.

“Lovely Scene”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

My wife and I visited Trattoria 4 Leone last June. We booked ahead and were glad we did because it was packed and there were many people waiting to get in, one man begging for a reservation! I had fish and Vicki the fiocchetti di pera, pasta stuffed with taleggio cheese and pear, which was really excellent. We saw a lot of people eating steak, bistecca fiorentina, so it must be good there as is indicated by other reviews raving about it. The service as good and our waiter was very pleasant and accommodating.

The restaurant is located in the tiny Piazza della Passera, not far from the Palazzo Pitti. We had a table outside, a wise choice for a warm evening in Florence, and as we ate a two-man combo was setting up in the piazza. Soon some upbeat music was coming from a keyboard and guitar, people gathering, children dancing, it was quite a scene. Once you have a table at a restaurant in Italy you can sit there as long as you like—in fact, you almost always have to ask for the check. We took advantage of that, sipping wine and watching the scene, a wonderful evening in Italy.

“Great food, good atmosphere.”
Reviewed February 25, 2013 via mobile

I went there with friends and we had all a great dinner! We shared some appetizer and 'primi' to taste the more dishes were possible and we made the right choice. Then we had a real 'fiorentina' steak: almost a kilo per person! All the food was good, well cooked and served. The wine was good as well, even if it was just the basic choice. At the end we were expecting def a more expensive bill than the one we had. Wants more?

“Great Food”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

You'll wait, You'll sweat if you sit indoors in the summertime. However it's all worth the wait because the food is absolutely presented beautifully. I totally understand why a whole array of famous people eat there, the atmosphere in piazza is sooo movie like.
