We prepare the starters at the counter: bruschetta with olive oil and tomatoes, the classic Tuscan antipasto of assorted cold cuts, canapés with a chicken liver sauce, or with beans, or with garden-fresh tomatoes. Our specialties are egg and anchovies served on buttered toasted bread, and an excellent selection of sheep’s milk pecorino cheeses (ripened, fiore sardo, and PDO) from Sardinia and from Tuscany (fresh Seggiano or ripened in caverns) served with millefiori honey and pear compote.
An absolutely must-try is our insalata 4 Leoni made with rucola, emmenthal cheese, avocado, and a pesto made of rucola and pine nuts.
In summer you will always find prosciutto and melone, tomatoes and burrata, and fresh, young and tender spinach salad. In winter you can choose our brawn salads with orange peel or artichokes with rucola and grana cheese or our autumn salad made with red cabbage, chestnuts, squash, and gorgonzola cheese.
