This came highly recommended by our school so we had to try it out. Probably the cheapest meal I have ever had in Italy! This is a cafeteria-style self-service place packed with locals, shop clerks, working men, students, large families, etc. who come for the great value for money this place offers. Open every day for lunch and dinner. The food is OK, served up immediately, in a no-frills locale, at unbeatable prices. For what it is, this is a great deal, just don't expect anything fancy.

Leonardo's Self Serve was recommend to us before we even left home. After dining at a restaurant located on the edge of a piazza and paying an exorbitant service charge, a light meal costing over 70 euro - ouch! I remembered my friends advice ! We ate there the next two nights, the food is good, the prices for the food and drinks very reasonable. First night 18 euro, 2nd. night 22 euro.
Leonardo's is in a great location very close to the duomo. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend as a good place to eat.

We had to try the place after reading all the great reviews. It was disappointing. The food has marginal and had obviously been sitting for a while in the cases. It was average cafeteria stuff. The best parts were the pitcher of water that came for free and the clean, free toilets.

Cafeteria style near the Duomo. The food is good and inexpensive for Florence. It is on the second floor with booths overlooking the street. There is not. Much atmosphere, but the food is good. They also have pitchers of ice water for free with your meal. You will not have to buy bottled water.

Food is average (not good nor bad). Staff are quite friendly. You can ask them to heat the food or newly cooked. If restaurant ambience is improved, we might consider to be back.
