Many thanks to Eric and Marco who looked after us. Very funny and they even shared a few stories of their own. We had the set menu which was fantastic value at Eur55. We perhaps tried half of the menu - including soup, pasta, cold meats, steak/veal and also dessert! Wine was included and of decent quality. We stayed and... More

This place was recommended to me by a couple of locals but I was very disappointed. As mentioned by others, the food arrives almost immediately and it I felt rushed-- the food was not particularly good or interesting. I did like the vegetable flan and recommend that. But did not like atmosphere of this place.

Tried to have dinner there tonight, but I was stopped by the hostess who told me I can't stay because they have no tables for one person.. have no words

Hello Daria, I'm sure it was a misunderstanding. Of course you can come alone at our restaurant. We simply don't have single tables because we prefer to have big tables and sit people next to each other. Our philosophy is to share, even tables :) We will be pleased to welcome you in the near future. More

I've eat the rabbit dish and the selections of pasta. Both of them were tasty but not wow. The rabbit for me was a little bit salty and therefore i drank a lot of water and wine. We've been put to a booth along with another dozen of Italians - and they are really noisy :-)).

We were able to take a quick 5 minute walk from our hotel, the Golden Tower Hotel to II Litini. Our reservations were at 12:30 (opening time). There were about 20 people outside the doors. They opened up the doors at 12:30 and then asked if each person had a reservation or not. Depending on the answer, they routed them... More

A few years had gone by since my last lunch at Il Latini, a Florentine must-visit almost as famous as the David. Unfortunately, in my opinion, things have severely deteriorated as the restaurant has lost its family touch and turned itself into a perfectly oiled and smooth tourist trap. When you find bottles of Latini branded wine and oil on... More

We have eaten at this restaurant during our past two visits to Florence and highly recommend it. The restaurant gives you that truly authentic Italian feel, and the food is fabulous. The staff are very friendly as well. You MUST make reservations in advance, as they seem to only do one seating promptly at 7:30 pm when the doors first... More

We had lunch as soon as we arrive to Florence... We sat at a table which was little bit away from the main room, I didn't like it that much. so ask for the main room for a table.... There were not many choices at the menu.... Number of pastas at the menu was very few so I have ordered... More

Description
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. Il Latini's kitchen was originally the kitchen of Narciso's wife, who used to take the dishes from her home to the cellars in Palazzo Rucellai where tables were set. Sora Maria's cooking was made of ingredients and flavours typical of tuscan cuisine, simple and genuine food that nowadays are still a characteristic of the restaurant. The flood in Florence did not spare the tavern, which continued nevertheless to serve warm dishes Florentine citizens among the muddy streets.

Staying in Duomo

Neighborhood Profile
Duomo
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 as it was in ancient times, with maids walking in the main square and horses carrying coaches. Nowadays, roads are busy with street artists. Rustic Tuscan bakeries give way to fashion shops; just stop for a few minutes in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica to enjoy the colors and sweet melody of the carousel that will bring back great memories from anyone’s childhood.
