Lonely Planet review
A veteran everyone loves, Leo is famed around town for its friendly ambience and cheap food – ranging from plain-Jane acceptable to grandma delicious. Get here early in summer to snag one of 10 checked-tableclothed tables crammed beneath parasols on the narrow street outside. Otherwise, it's noisy dining inside among typically nondescript 1970s decor. The vitello tonnato (cold veal with a tuna and caper sauce) is excellent. No credit cards.
