Think this is the sort of place you're either going to love or hate. On arrival the atmosphere is fantastic, it's clearly always full and the waiters are good fun. The food is good, not be best but lots of it, and you certainly won't go hungry! Couple of the tips, worth making a reservation but equally if you're front... More

A must for anyone who is in Florence, and likes food. We lived there, and all the locals know to go to Il Latini. We generally visit Italy now in August or X-mas/New Year's week, and the restaurant is usually closed for holidays when we are there... which breaks my heart. However, last couple times, we visited while they were... More

Our group consisted of 7 couples, service was fast and friendly. The food was great and there was plenty of it as well! Overall a wonderful dinning experience. A great value for the amount and quality of food we received. It is one of the most talked about meals of our 10 day trip throughout the Tuscany region. I would... More

I was not sure whether to rank this resataurant "very good" or merely "average" when all is said and done. Our Italian friend ( with impeccable taste) recommended we dine here for authentic Florentine steak. As we only had one night in Florence, we made a reservation for 7:30 pm, when the restaurant opens. A line up had formed outside... More

Blame it on the guidebooks, but this place was not the magical restaurant I remembered from a decade ago. Super touristy, menu not interesting, waiters huffy, food unexceptional, and I really HATE when I have a bad meal in Italy because it's so avoidable with all that good food!!!! The owner handed out dinner checks willy nilly with a strange... More

I'm not sure why the reviews are so mixed regarding this place. I loved it! I went to this restaurant several years ago with my family and we had a wonderful experience. It was a very family friendly atmosphere with plenty of food and wine. This place made our Florence trip more enjoyable and we still talk about this place... More

Il Latini was recommended by some friends of mine who travel a great deal; and their recommendation was spot on! I was with my family of 6 and we needed this lovely respite to accompany our busy and tiring day of touring. The meal was delicious and the service exemplary. This restaurant is very popular, so I highly recommend making... More

Have only been once and will never return. Caters to tourists and just seems to deal in volume, as opposed to true Firenze quality. Not worth your trip.

This was recommended by a local and we had high expectation, but this ended up as the worst meal we had over our 2 weeks in Italy. We didn't have a reservation and thought we were lucky to just be able to walk-in. As soon as we sat down, we realised this is not a local restaurants with a bunch... More

I came to this restaurant with high expectations, due to the numerous recommendations from locals and on trip advisor. The large queue outside the restaurant also gave me high hopes for the quality of the food. After the long wait to get into the restaurant, I was ushered to my table, and the meal began. My overall conclusion of the... More
