Tuscan cuisine is also a culture. This convivial tradition is alive and well in the restaurant, where each year the Friends of “Latini prize” ceremony is held. Among the winners: Giovanni Spadolini, Leonardo Sciascia, Eugenio Garin, Indro Montanelli, Carlo Bo, Maria Bellongi to name but a few.
Friendships are formed around the tables at Latini, with conversations in foreign languages, animated discussions and traditionally-flavoured cuisine. Il Latini is itself a tradition, a way of getting acquainted with Tuscany, its people and its culture.
