Bib Gourmand: good quality, good value cooking
Simple restaurant
Around the tables of "Il Latini" friendships are interwoven, all the world's languages are spoken, fervent discussions are held and everyone tastes food that has the flavour of the old times past. Il Latini means tradition: a means of discovering Tuscany and its people. The kitchen is where the best products of Tuscany's countryside are turned into the dishes typical of the tuscan tradition.

Sora Maria's cooking was made of ingredients and flavours typical of tuscan cuisine, simple and genuine food that nowadays are still a characteristic

Best T bone I have ever had! Open at 7 pm and ten minutes early will help to get seated. No complicated dress but sea salt , that shows the basic flavor of T bone . I will go back to Firenze for it !

We have been here two or three times and each time is better. It can sometimes be tricky finding Il Latini in the maze of small streets and erratic GPS signals. But once you do, this is a comfortable restaurant with multiple dining rooms. Service...More

This place is tucked down a little lane but easily accessible & just a short walk from the busy Piazza Santa Maria Novella. The service was brilliant, a lovely guy who was able to advise us on the menu & chat but stay efficient. The...More

Let’s go straight to the point: there is NO better place than “IL LATINI” to eat a great steak in Florence downtown. Quality/price performance is incredible. House red wine is one of the best I ever drank in a trattoria and I am a professional...More

I love this place. First "discovered" it in October 1992 and our January 8th 2020 visit was only our third. People may try to tell you it's too touristy. Sure, the clientele includes many nationalities. But there are plenty of Florentines and other Italians too....More

Dropped in with out a reservation and lucky to get a table, place was packed with mostly Italians (a good sign). Doubt it would be possible to just "drop in" in high season. Make a reservation! Worth it! We both had the famous Tuscan tomato...More

Meat dishes and sauces were the highlight. Barley salad was simple and delicious. Service was efficient. House wine was tasty and a good value. Crowded on a Sunday night with plenty of locals and families, so reservations recommended,

Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by
an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city.
The historic center is characterized by the immensity
of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the
brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does
not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni
Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is
enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city
