This historical restaurant is a favourite with both Florentines and visitors alike. Despite the fact that the restaurant is always fairly busy, the service is excellent. If you have not booked in advance and are compelled to wait outside in the street - do not despair, you will be brought a snack to make your wait more pleasurable. The Florentine steak is without comparison, made from the choicest cuts of meat. There is also the 'ribollita' and the spelt soup, as well as many other Florentine specialities - all at reasonable prices.
Great food, in a great city.. do not miss was there one week ago and it is still on top of its game.... Veal chop...wow!.. vino on the table and a little vino santo to follow it up with... you will not regret your stop here.. for two it was 80 euro...
I went with high expectations! However, I was sort of dissapointed as it was nowhere near the best meal we had in Italy - however, it was still good! I had been lead to believe that this was a local spot, but it's not - it's filled with tourists and exchange students, and wherever you don't see locals you can know what to expect.. Our total was 150 euro for 4 people and we got a procuitto appetizer, bruschetta appetizer, 4 pasta dishes, meat for 2 people (already getting full at this point) and then desert. They also brought out raisin wine and biscotti for us at the end. Everything was good, however, I feel like we got a lot better quality at other restaraunts. If I were you, I would ask my hotel for their reccomendation (and they kind of were iffy on Il Latini when we asked them about it, but I had my mind set!) or find a local to show you their favorite spot. We had much better luck with the non touristy spots for value and quality.. In fact, the places that are more for locals end up being about 10-15 euros a person!
Great atmosphere. Excellent service. Large portions. BUT the food was below average. We sent back the vegetable soup, it was so bad. Nothing was delicious. The cost was 85 Euros for two people. We expected more.
We were put on to Il Latini by Rick Steve's book and it has been one of his best picks. We have been to Florence four times and have ate at Il Latini every trip. It is something that we will simply not miss. It is the best value, best food (esp the prime rib) and best fun in all of Italy. Go, get a table, sit back, and tell the waiter to 'bring it on'. You will leave full, content and satisfied that you have spent a wonderful evening enjoying Tuscan food with wonderful people.
I thoguht the servise was awful! everything else was fine, but the reason i thought there was bad service was because the man serving me and my family was very rude and threw wine at me, then pretended he just slipped. How ude! i most certainly will NOT be going there again.
This was a real authentic Italian place. No menus, no prices - just conversations and suggestions from the waiter on what to eat. In addition they have the houes wine on the loyalty system- how many glasses?
We truly ate sooo well! The pasta with boar meat sauce was out of this world and the roasted lamb was like butter...melted in your mouth!
Looks like a hole from the outside yet once you are inside there are many rooms filled with Italians which is a good indication of good food!
The best part was paying..the owner came round with the waiter whom told him what we had and the left out some of out items and only counted 2 glasses of wine vs. 5 and just made it a plain and even 50Euro for 2pp vs. what should have been more like 80Euro per person.
If you've never been to Il Latini, you'll start out by standing outside with a large group of people wondering if you're going to get in, even though you have a 7:00 PM reservation. Not to worry everyone gets in, and thats when the fun begins. This is great a great place especially if you have a large party. They serve many of there plates family style and the food just keeps on coming. It was the most enjoyable, affordable, and great, great food. Don't miss it.
