A friend and I visited Florence and were directed to visit this restaurant as it is the only authentic Florentine restaurant left, according to the owner of our hostel. We went and were seated with an Italian couple. We ordered the bisteca fiorentina and the house wine and shared the entire meal because it was so big. It was an... More

We walked to Il Latini from our hotel and arrived to find a crowd out front with a number of people wanting to get a standby reservation for any time available. As we made our way through the crowd, people asked us how we managed to get a reservation. Answer, my wife emailed for a reservation two months before. After... More

If you are looking for a good restaurant, avoid this one. This is a tourist trap and there are far better ones to go to. The food came within 2 mins for each course. That is not normal if food is being freshly prepared. It also makes a leisurely dinner difficult. It's all personal taste but try Santa bevedore or... More

That is what my wife and I felt like when we sat down at this restaurant. It has two seatings 7:30 and 9:30. We showed up at 9:20 for the 9:30 seating and there was a huge crowd at the door waiting to be seated. Rather than wait until the tables were turned and cleaned, they sat us at a... More

Easily the best restaurant experience if you want to be fed amazing food without having to think! Our waiter just kept suggesting things...parma ham to start with the most delicious home made salami...then a trio of pastas...then a selection of meats...followed by biscotti and liquors...all this plus a bottle of wine for only 90 euros for two....I think I could...

We were surprised now big the place actually was but nevertheless the restaurant waits for the guests with plenty of waiters and a fast kitchen. One waiter has around 4-6 tables so you as a guest dont have to wait that long. The food we got (bread, melon with prosciutto, pasta, soup, panacotta) was one of the best we have... More

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
