Good food, good service and a nice outdoor eating area on Piazza della Passera.
We had one lunch and one dinner here on our latest trip. We made reservations to ensure we could eat outside. Reservations would also be recommended for dinner as the night we ate dinner the indoor seating was also full. All our food for both meals was quite good and reasonably priced. The pear stuffed pasta with taleggio sauce in particular was extremely good. We will definitely go back on a future visit.

Nice trattoria in a convenient Oltrarno location.
We had two meals at Trattoria 4 Leoni during our four weeks in Florence. The first was fabulous, the second was "pretty good." What set the meals apart was the service. We made reservations for each visit and had dinner in the 8 to 8:30 range each time. On our first visit, we were seated in the main dining room (as you enter). The table was comfortable and the service impeccable.
We ordered antipasti to share, and then bistecca alla Fiorentina to be shared by four, with several contorni, followed by dessert. The steak was heavenly and the patate al forno, spinaci, and verdure grigliate were great side dishes. I can't recall the total for the meal, but I recall thinking that the charge was quite reasonable for the meal we ate. On the second visit, we were seated in a smaller room, our table felt crowded against another, and the service was not as well paced or competent. The food was still good. On both visits the restaurant was very busy. So make reservations!

Excellent service, very nice trattoria in Oltrano area
Directions: In Piazza della Passera.
We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Quattro Leoni. Our waiter was very entertaining and helpful. We shared the asparagus with prosciutto and pecorino and it was amazing! We also shared a wonderful salad. My husband had the veal chop and I had the well-known pear-filled pasta. I loved the pasta, but Greg thought the veal chop was a bit tough. That was our only negative in this meal. With a liter of house wine, bill was 62 euros.
This is a very popular place. I had originally tried to make reservations online. They have that option on their website. However, I never received a confirmation, so I stopped the day before to try to book a time. They were almost full, and we had to eat a little earlier than we wanted to get in.
