“Can't be beat!”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

Seperately, everything would be excellent. But together...the dining experience at Latin King can't be beat. There is no comparison! when you combine the ambiance, the staff, the food, the wine and the caring owners together, it is just the best dining experience in Des Moines, if not Iowa!

“Delicious variety of food”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

I keep thinking of Latin King as mainly Italian, but we went there for dinner mid-week and while there's plenty of Italian food [lots of pasta!], there were plenty of other options as well. The food was excellent and the service also. Our server was a woman who clearly had worked there for years and enjoyed her work and did an excellent job.

I haven't been going here since it was remodeled, but I have fond memories from when my family went there when I was growing up.

“One of Des Moines Top Ranked Restaurants”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

If you like Italian Cuisine then you will love Tursi's Latin King Restaurant. Authentic Italian family recipes from Italy, coupled with a great atmosphere and awesome wine selection - need I say more. When in Des Moines put it at the top of your to-do list.
