My husband and ate twice at La Grotta while in Florence. The food and service were excellent. The prices are very reasonable and the wine list is excellent. Both times the waiters were friendly and personable. We will go back next time we visit Florence.

We found this place occasionally because it was close to our hotel. We were charmed by service and meals quality. So, we visited this restaurant every day, tried different meals and everything was just perfect. I especially recommend lasagna al forno, pork chops, cheesecake and pizza.

As for service time - usually we were served really fast and in 5..7 minutes you could start eat some dish. However it's better to avoid 9-10PM time because there are a lot of people and you could wait longer than usual.

Also the good thing is that they accept credit cards and have no hidden extra charges like "+N% for service/tax/whatever" which is seems unfortunately quite popular in Italy. In Leo you see the price and pay it, period. You can add tips of course but it's up to you.

Summary: highly recommended.

We have eaten twice at this restaurant so far this holiday and will come back again; it's conveniently next door to our hotel (Hotel Montreal). It's friendly - tonight we were given a complimentary limoncello liqueur after our coffee; the service has been attentive; the prices are very reasonable and the food hot and excellent, such as tender steaks, a fabulous meat and mushroom sauce with tagliatelle, crisp patate fritte, smooth and light panna cotta. We really like this place and have reserved a table again for tomorrow. Highly recommended.

My 2 teenage daughters and I ate here 4 times both for lunch and dinner while staying in Florence at the end of September 2013. We kept coming back because we received excellent service and the menu prices were very reasonable compared to other establishments. The food was always served promptly and we were happy with the quality every time. Each member of staff we encountered were polite and welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. There was no cover charge ( we were stung unwittingly at another restaurant) and only paid 4.50 Euro for a medium size coke which was large enough. We had various pizza's and gnocchi and lasange and each dish was delicious. I enjoyed the house red too. I certainly recommend this restaurant as a lovely place to eat and relax in Florence.

We ate our first lunch in Florence at this restaurant because it was just down the street from our hotel. We liked it so much we ate here three days later for our last lunch in Florence. There were four of us and we kept our orders to the basics - pizzas, caprese salads and pastas. The food was great and our service was excellent. I can definitely recommend this restaurant for lunches.
