Typical Tuscan cuisine in the heart of Florence

Trattoria 4 Leoni - Firenze

Trattoria 4 Leoni is a typical Tuscan restaurant located in the centre of Florence between Ponte Vecchio and Palazzo Pitti, in one of the historical piazzas of the region’s capital city, Piazza della Passera.

The establishment has recently celebrated twenty years of activity: its origins are those of a Florentine eatery with the atmosphere and vitality of a working-class neighbourhood, but that sports a definitely contemporary and elegant character.

Trattoria 4 Leoni - Firenze

At the typical Florentine restaurant 4 Leoni, the protagonist is Tuscan cuisine with its typical and genuine dishes, which change according to the season and availability at the market: the bread salad panzanella and the bread soup papa al pomodoro in summer, the bread and vegetable soup ribollita and legume soups in winter; and the triumphant bistecca alla fiorentina (florentine T-bone steak).

Classic, tradition-honoured first courses include Mugellana stuffed pasta, vegetable minestrone, oven-baked lasagne, and tagliolini with truffles. Then comes fish like grilled octopus, baccalà codfish prepared Florentine style in tomato sauce with potatoes, or prepared with chickpeas, and an always crunchy fish-fry.

For dessert, the choice is between the traditional “cantuccini” almond biscuits from Prato and vin santo, homemade ice-cream, cakes, and homemade desserts eaten with a spoon, such as cheese cake made to our very own recipe, and the classic tiramisù.

“Questo ristorante tradizionale fiorentino mi incanta sempre. Oltre alla location in cui si trova, la deliziosa Piazza della Passera, il locale in se è molto curato e la cucina (tipica toscana) molto buona. La carne era fantastica come pure gli antipasti. Servizio ottimo con una cameriera gentile e molto simpatica che si è presa cura di noi senza essere invadente. Un posto in cui torno volentieri!”
