As recommended by my sister in law, we went in for lunch. Good think we made reservations the day before because it got packed really quick. We had rabbit and veal and they both were fantastic. Service was pleasant and efficient.

I first visited in 1996 and had a marvellous lunch. Have been back a few times since, most recently a lunch in October 2016, but it is not as good as it was, in my view. The restaurant is not as busy as previously (one time we arrived, there was a mob at the door for Sunday lunch, queueing to... More

Overall the food and service here were good. The entire experience felt very rushed. From the cattle lineup outside to the waiters zipping through the tables.

Very off hand service was the outstanding feature of the restaurant. We chose this restaurant because it was recommended by a French restaurant guide. It's true there were hams hanging from the ceiling. To be honest I'm not sure quite how they got in there. A plate of pecorino was just that, no honey or marmellata on the side. My... 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

Neighbourhood 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.
