Very friendly staff and good choice of dishes. My wife and I had a simple, tasty three course meal with change out of € 20.00!! Excellent value and very good quality for this type of restaurant 3 min. from the Doumo. Ideal for family with children.

I love going there. Went in January 2017. The wide choice of great Italian fare, from soup to varied pasta dishes to salted cod in tomato sauce (my favorite) to artichokes, and desserts as well as a choice of drinks including wine and beer make for a perfect meal at incredible prices. Everyday the menus changes and prices are listed... More

We have been to Florence three times and every time we eat at least once at Leonardo's. It's the perfect place for a quick and affordable meal. It is especially popular to local working people during the lunch hours. Even though it is cafeteria style the food is better than average quality. It is family owned and the food is... More

The Ristorante Self-service Leonardo is in a fantastic location - just a block from the Duomo. The food is good and VERY reasonably priced. It is served cafeteria style. My only complaint is that the food was a little cold. Otherwise, I was very impressed.

It was late, we were tired, and starving. We got there just as he (I believe the owner) was closing up. We were the only ones in there, they were getting rid of the food that was left, and the pickings were slim. He was wonderful and let us grab a tray and some food. Even though the food wasn't...

We ate at this simple cafeteria twice and were impressed by both quantity and quality. Loved being able to see our choices before making a decision. Very affordable and tap water pitchers provided. Lots of selection.

Walk up a flight of stairs to eat well with locals in a classic cafeteria. Lots of choices. The mixed salad is very large with lots of fresh ingredients. Spinach with tortellini was good. Also enjoyed bruschetta and eggplant parmigiana and finished with tiramisu. Along with a single serving of Chianti and a lemon soda all of this came to... More

I have been there twice during my visit in Florence - once for lunch and once for dinner. The place is frequented by the locals, which is always an indication that the food is good. Each time, they offered slightly different options, which means that you can go there many times and choose something else. Each time they also had... More

certainly in need of a refreshment, but clean and easy to reach. Large choice at the counter, both for florentines and tourists. full meal for 12 euros, and no problem with digestion. To recommend especially after a long walk , you can seat with no extra fees like elsewhere in town.

My globe trekker friend highly recommended this self-serviced canteen to me. The canteen is located in the centre of Florence, near the Duomo. I noticed that most of the customers were locals. Me and my travel buddy were the only tourists there. There was quite a queue during lunch time and the place was packed with locals. They have a... More

Staying in Duomo

Neighbourhood Profile
Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city. The historic center is characterized by the immensity of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city as it was in ancient times, with maids walking in the main square and horses carrying coaches. Nowadays, roads are busy with street artists. Rustic Tuscan bakeries give way to fashion shops; just stop for a few minutes in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica to enjoy the colors and sweet melody of the carousel that will bring back great memories from anyone’s childhood.
