Love, love love this place! Inexpensive and good. Salads, pastas, meat, fish, beer, wine and bread. Self service so no cover charge. Clean , locals line up.

We ate at this cafeteria-style place twice during our time in Florence. For 45E or so, 4 people had a filling meal. You select what looks good, then grab a free pitcher of tap water at the end of the line.Everything we tried was excellent. My son especially liked the fish, and we all liked the various pastas.

This was my go to place when I was living in Florence for lunch or dinner, because the prices are not as high as they are in fancier restaurants and the food is great. I usually ate pasta or risottos there and they were awesome, even the simplest dishes taste great. Another advantage is that it is really close to the Duomo so you don't even have to go a long wa for but just make it a stop while sight seeing. The place itself looks like a self service restaurant, not fancy at all but don't be discouraged by that. It is awesome that you can get a main course for 4-5 euros and if you want a salad and a dessert with it it will cost you around 9-10 euros, which is in my book a good price for Florence. if you are on a budget this is the place to go.

This isn't a fancy place at all, and the food isn't gourmet, but it's affordable and filling. Some of the dishes are quite tasty and the wine is cheap - 5 Euros for a whole bottle of Toscana Red. A large plate of lasagna was only 4.50 Euros. The Bruschetta was good and hubby liked his steak. It's fun to sit at one of the upstairs windows and watch the people below. Tour groups seem to frequent the place, but they're in and out in a hurry. The cafeteria-style service was good - servers were friendly. Good for families, not very romantic for couples though. Good desserts.

If you are looking for a fast meal (Lunch or Dinner) at a few hundred meters from Piazza Duoimo, Self-Service Leonardo is for you.
There is plenty of space and the service is quick.
The offer a variety of home made food at a convenint price, and it is very suitable for families.
The day I was there I reccived a very nice welcome from the staff.
