Trattoria 4 Leone

Member Rating 4 out of 5 by Wondersboy on June 20, 2003

Trattoria 4 Leone is a wonderful restaurant near Santa Spritu. Waiters are friendly, helpful, and have a sense of humor (except for a few sneers when we returned the Beefsteak Florentine to the kitchen so they could heat the center more). This trattoria is popular with locals on dates, businessmen out for a dinner, older couples with small dogs, and a few in-the-know tourists.

The steak, a huge T-Bone from Tuscan cattle, is quickly grilled in olive oil and then finished with a sprinkling of salt and pepper and a drip of olive oil for brightness. The gnocchi gorgonzola is creamy and pungeant and the gnocchi are so tender that they melt on your tongue.

Try to reserve a table outside on the plaza if you can, but if you can't, the interior is cozy and friendly. They have their own label house wines or an extensive wine list.
