A simple but excellent carnivorous experience. The house wine was very good at 10 Euros per bottle. The pasta sampler was excellent, especially the rabbit with gnocchi. The Florentine steak and Roasted Veal were superb !!! A must go to place.

Started with the sampler appetizer and bottle of house chianti. My husband had the sirloin steak and vegetables (salad) and I had the homemade spinach ravioli. We shared a dessert, espresso. Service was excellent. Food was delicious! The space is a little tight, or "cozy"...More

This restaurant has been getting mixed reviews lately. That's a shame. Because Il Latini is a treasure. We prefer the lunch experience more because there are less tourists. The dining area is quiet, the service is fantastic, and the food- superb. They bring out wine...More

The food was bland. The mix of flavors were not properly melded together so there was not a lot of unity in the taste. The service was ok. I won't return. There are too many incredible places to indulge in the sub par.

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

it's not really all you can eat, it's just the way the owner wrote up the bill. Things have changed, now you order from a menu. We are looking for somewhere new, we like the way the old owner ran things!

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.
