My wife and I discovered this restaurant on TripAdvisor when we were looking for restaurants popular with locals and we were not disappointed. The restaurant is centrally located near the Apple store. It's a self-service place with friendly personnel; they all speak English. I had...More

OK, so you aren't heading here for a romantic date but it's good authentic grub with modest portions so you can try many. More than half the customers were locals. Great location with reasonable beer and wine costs. Give it a try ! You'll eat...More

It's a great place very central near the Duomo. Once found, we've spent each lunch here. Lots of locals. Very good assortment of main course, free tap water, few desserts. Meat is wonderful, spagetti is full of cheese and souse, great value and overall it's...More

Not many places to eat are open in Florence at 4 p.m. But this one in the centre of sightseeing points was recommended us by local people. There two floors and when we visited this restaurant there were so many hungry people that after ordering...More

Do not be misled by the reasonable prices. The food is authentic and delicious! Staff were friendly and helpful in explaining the dishes on offer. Water is free! Why pay cover or service charge? Also you can actually see the dishes before you order. Unless...More

Ignore any poor reviews, accept this for what it is and enjoy. It's up the stairs over a much more expensive restaurant. We ate here 2-3 courses for €20 for 2 at lunchtime. Warm and welcoming, queue up with everyone else. Pasta choices are excellent...More

Leonardo's location is so central, yet its quality is quite hidden. That is mainly due to the second-floor and school/workplace canteen like appearance of the establishment. Once inside, however, you realize that Leonardo is frequented mostly by locals, and that the dishes are in fact...More

Been here many many times the last few years and every time we return to Florence we come here. Consistent quality feels like home style Italian food. Great value and it’s just around the block from the Duomo.

I almost hesitate to review Leonardo's because I feel like it's one of the city's best kept secrets. This self-service cafe is popular with students because you can get a lot of delicious food for very little money. Some dishes are the same from day...More

Don't expect excellent quality of food but menu range is very big ! I definitely will go back there next time I visit Florence. You can choose whatever you want. The portion of main dish (exactly, second dish) is rather small, which is great for...More

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 I recall it's not. It is on second floor and you go via stairs. Not sure there is elevator.

It is right by the Duomo. I don't know if they do groups as it is a self-service cafeteria style restaurant.
