This faces the Cathedral and has its back door onto the Piazza Municipale. It was lovely to experience a couple going into the City Hall to get married and later come out to be greeted by family wishing them luck and showering them with rice....More

We went there for lunch, I think because it was the only restaurant opened at the time. I had a salami sandwich. Worst sandwich I ever had. Nothing it but a few slices of salami. No cheese, no butter , no lettuce, no oil. Just...More

Got late in the night to this restaurant. The staff was very welcome and helpful. Ordered some roasted veal and it was great. The taste. The combination of spices just right. The prices decent enough too.

It was a rainy day that was saved due to excellent food and service in Leon D'oro. Domestic and authentic food accompanied with friendly service and normal price is more than enough to make you happy while you are looking for new experiences in Italy.

Great place to enjoy your mid-morning cappuccino and yummy croissant, while taking in the view of the spectacular cathedral facade (though no view of it at present, as major renovation work is taking place on the masonry and sculpture). It's a prime spot here, right...More

Very interesting combination of Italian and nouvelle cuisine. Good quality and varied choice. If you order an alcoholic drink, you are presented with an enormous plate of free snacks before you even order your food. Then a good quality choice on the menu. Triangulo, which...More

Good for snacks and coffee, but not quick. Friendly staff run off their feet a bit. Fantastic view of cathedral.
