We had dinner here (second seating at 9 pm-2100). It's in an excellent location, across the street from the Duomo and next to the Gran Palazzo. All four of us had been wanting a Florentine Steak, but they are huge and pricey, so we decided to order two - one for each couple. We all ordered from the primi menu and all four were excellent. Our wine, the Nobile di Montepulciano Talosa 2006, was superb. It was, perhaps, the best red wine I've ever tasted. (We tried to buy some at the Talosa tasting room the next day to discover someone from the Wine Spectator had bought all the 2006.)
The steak was a disappointment. It was cooked properly (rare), but was tough. Our shared steak had a large inedible grisley portion. I know that can happen, but considering the price, it should have been excellent. Our dolci, tiramasu, was quite good.
The service was adequate, though certainly not warm. I decided on 4 stars for Ai Quattro Venti because of the wine and primi. If we'd had house wine, this would have been a 3-star experience. Perhaps it was an off night, but I wouldn't go out of my way to eat here again.
