Fodor's Review

It may be the noisiest, most crowded trattoria in Florence, but it's also one of the most fun. The genial host, Torello ("little bull") Latini, presides over his four big dining rooms, and somehow it feels as if you're dining in his home. Ample portions of ribollita prepare the palate for the hearty meat dishes that follow. Both Florentines and tourists alike tuck into the agnello fritto (fried lamb) with aplomb. Their lombatina (a grilled veal chop) might be the best in town. Even with a reservation, there's always a wait.

Great Bistecca and Wine

We had a great Bistecca Fiorentina at Il Latini during our last visit. The food was excellent! The restaurant has a typicall Italian atmosphere when all these people are just squeezed inside to sit the tables set really close to each other. The restaurant becomes very noizy because everyone is chatting. Read my blog post for more details: http://followmckinsey.com/il-latini-florence-food-adventure/
