The food was wonderful and it started coming to the table moments after being seated. Reservations if this is really on your list are a good idea. We were told there were only two seatings nightly but they seated people waiting as quickly as they could. It took some time and the food just kept coming. When I thought there... More

We were in Florence in December and found that there were not many places to eat before 9pm. Whereas all other restaurants were closed or virtually empty we were surprised to find this one extremely busy with a queue outside. We thought we'd be lucky to be seated but it took a matter of moments (in here you share tables... More

Da il Latini is a delightful little local Tuscan place in the Santa Maria Novella area. The restaurant serves in a sort of family style way, sometimes seating patrons at joint tables (although we were a large enough group to be seated on our own). The waiter suggests the available dishes rather than handing you a menu and despite my... More

In summery, awful service and long waiting time. Food is at best acceptable and not worth the money. In strongly recommend you visit another restaurant where the food and experience is much better such as Santo Bevitore. The basic ingredients seemed good. However, the kitchen mass-produced the dishes consequently the quality appeared random. My lamb was overcooked whereas my husband's... More

Large portion of steak. Nothing special. But the best service in town. Our waiter was engaging but unfortunately the food was bland.

Thankfully there are a few people here who see through this restaurant and see it for what it really is. Forget rustic charm, authentic Tuscan food, this restaurant hides behind this facade but delivers sub-standard food which is clearly thrown on the plate and fully takes advantage of tourists. It is not a pleasant experience and I hated every minute... More

This restaurant is a "fabricca". A factory, make no mistake about it. But it is a wonderfully efficient factory serving great steak. It is all about the beef here. I didn't order anything, they just brought a plate of crudo, followed by some minestrone and then an immense, delicious steak with a side of spinach. Heaven for me. The house... More

We booked on the recommendation of friends and after visiting this evening (for a romantic meal for 2) are sorely disappointed. This is tourism at its worst - we were seated 7.30 sharp (along with the rest of the room - all tourists) - no menu - no choice of wine just a push towards the house red on the... More

Went to Il Latini on a recommendation from a friend that lived in Florence. Did not disappoint!!! I let the waiter order and was served an amazing antipasti, 3 different pastas and an phenomenal t-bone steak. It was reasonably priced and had a great atmosphere. Do yourself a favor and visit this place if your in Florence!!!

We wished we had read the reviews! We queued with anticipation. So many people waiting to get in must be a good sign right? Afraid not. The whole experience felt like a conveyor belt. Get in, get out and on to the next people. No menu and no prices as far as we could tell.. And we did ask. We... More
