Description: 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.

We got the 55 Euro prix fixe dinner for the second time. They bring out unlimited plates of starters, pasta, meat, dessert, wine and water. If you like something, just ask for more. The food is great, and it's a fun way to celebrate something special. It tends to be busy, so make a reservation.

We had veil chop and sirloin steak, which was really good. The waiter who served us was very friendly. It was one of the best restaurant we've been to in Firenze. Highly recommend it.

Such a great steak Florentine! The entire staff was very friendly, which was actually rare on our Italy trip. The food was great!! When we arrived 5 mins before it opened, there was a large crowd to get in. Good thing we had a reservation!

If you are not a fan of traditional bistecca (meaning, rare), then don't try to force yourself to like it, because it really is rare. Some places which are more touristy or perhaps who have had experiences with more tourists requesting for more cooked steak (medium/medium rare) do serve it, but I don't feel that it's as authentic. In Il Latini, the steak is rare. Excellent seasoning and texture on the crust, but quite a rare steak. Good pasta (we had a penne al ragu on the side). Their steak is on the more expensive end, above 50€ per kg.
