Came here after much searching for a decent restaurant with a vacant table. They offered us a table in 10minutes, and gave a free glass of white wine and some cheese while we waited. Already great service. The meal was excellent and with the place full of Italians, you knew it must be good! We had the rabbit and pork,... More

This is one of the best places in town for classical Italian dishes. The Bistecca is outstanding the house wine as well. The decoration is original few places have original prints and engravings on the walk and hanging legs of Prosciutto give the place an old inn feel. The service is also outstanding. Need I say more? Enjoy!

Ordered the mixed grill and the food was very plain and tasteless. They failed to include any beef on our plate and the beef is apparently what they do best.

Highly rated, does not live up to ratings. They serve huge crowds and it is an assembly line. Waiters don't give you much option other than to do the " family style". This includes a plethora of foods...good bread, superb mozzarella and prosciutto salad, grain salad, unlimited house wine ( good, not great), excellent Pate, three types of pasta (excellent... More

Nice place to meet people from all over the world.even if full of tourists looks popular, it' s comfortable, familiar. On 3 dinners, once only just below the average at the top. More for friends than for lovers', inspiring chatting and conversation crossing tables

Il Latini was one of the more commercial restaurants we visited in Florence. One advantage here is that it's a little bigger and can accommodate a larger party more comfortably than some of the other spots we tried. Food was solid and we enjoyed the service; they were quite patient allowing us to try a number of wines before we... More

We were recommended Il Latini by a friend and decided to visit on the last night of a long weekend in Florence. It is hidden away up a narrow back street and it took us a while to find it. We hadn't booked and when we arrived it was quite busy. They didn't have any tables for two available, so... More

We made a reservation here a couple of weeks before our visit. There are two sittings: 19:30 and 21:30. Turning up 5 minutes before time - the earlier sitting - we found a large group of diners in the street outside. It was something akin to a rugby scrum. Some had reservations, some not. Eventually, 10 minutes after our booked... More

When we were arrived in Florence, we said to ourselves that we will not leave the city until we have tried Steak Florentine. Il Latini was highly recommended by the owner of our B&B. We found the restaurant after a short walk and there was a line building up and they let in those with reservations first and reassured the... More

The good: cute patio/court seating. Staff speaks English. No reservations required. Steak was pretty tasty but not the best cut The bad: Caprese didn't come with basil. Il latini oil was about as good as cooking oil. Table wine was vulgar. The wait for food and check was embarrassing. Everyone around you will be the Americans you flew across the... More

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
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.
