We have been coming to this restaurant for several years and the food is always very good. What is even more satisfying is the great service. Bajram and Federico are two of the best waiters in Florence. They make your dining experience memorable. Another nice...thing about this place is that they are open all day so you can dine during the afternoon or early evening. This restaurant is very popular so reservations are recommended if you want to eat during the usual late evening Italian dinner time.More

Those who have been in Florence more than once are quite likely familiar with trattoria 4 Leoni on Piazza della Passera. In the past 30 years we have been visiting Florence at least 40 times & often stopped to have a lunch “al di fuori”...(outside) at this invariably tasty & friendly eatery. On our recent trip, late October 2021, my wife & I stopped for a late lunch there & I put my shoulder bag on my wife’s chair. About an hour later I got up to get something from the bag & it was gone! That is - stolen! Luckily, there were no passports (only copies), or credit cards, or a lot of money there, but still, we felt terrible & violated (like anyone who had been robbed). Now, the punch line: I want to thank the 4 Leoni management for their exceptionally compassionate & understanding deeds. They went over & above expressing how badly they felt about this incident, promptly calling police (carabiniere), fetching a kind & very nice gentleman from their kitchen staff who helped to translate & communicate with police (even though it was the end of his shift & he was visibly tired), totally waving off our bill, & showing a very warm & sincere effort to make this bad situation as bearable as possible for us. Unfortunately, I cannot name all these wonderful & generous people as I did not get their names. However, I want to thank them all (including waiting staff) from the bottom of my heart & assure them that the next time in Florence we will lunch & dine there as many times as we can. We strongly recommend this great restaurant to everyone - as it is very true: really good people do make really good food! Sincerely & with our gratitude, Michael & IreneMore

Excellent food, excellent service, lovely outdoor seating even in the rain, kind and attentive wait staff. Found this place online when searching for the best pasta in Florence and it was delicious. We will be back.

We enjoyed this place so much. The wait staff was business like but friendly. Food was excellent - nice to get a really good salad, and the pasta (pici and taglierini) were to die for. The waiter sold us on dessert and it didn’t disappoint...- the best italian style cheesecake with tart frutti di boschi I have ever had. Not too sweet and sublimely creamy. We will return!More

We were traveling with eight people and since this is one of our favorite restaurants in Florence we booked a reservation. When we got there we had to sit outside on metal chairs. It was very cold in October. They offered blankets to us but...considering the sanitary aspect we denied them. The first three wines that we picked from their list were unavailable. We felt terrible to leave without ordering. We left 50 euro for disturbing their area and going another place.More

We stopped off here twice during our visit to Florence at the wine bar adjoined to the restaurant. Service was great, all waiters were friendly and spoke English well, drinks were fabulous, wine recommendations were spot on and we had anchovies which was delicious. Very...busy so you must be patient during peak hours but definitely worth the wait.More

We have been eating here for 20+ years. We always come back because the food is excellent and the service is impeccable. The Insalata 4 Leoni was delicious, as was the pear filled pasta. Everyone’s meat was beautifully cooked. A wonderful place for a great...dinner in the Oltrarno.More

At first glance, it looks ok; however the plates are very very basic. Not worth the money! The staff was nice, but the toilets weren’t.
