A Gem

Off the main drag, but still so close to everything. Incredible service in an ancient niche, with fresh and copious portions of delicious meats, cheeses, and vegetables. The staff couldn't have been more helpful and more engaging-- a lovely meal that we look forward to having again. Can't wait to... read more

We stumbled across this restaurant/store while walking around in Florence. We didn't sit in the restaurant but rather shopped for a couple bottles of wine. Their wine selection is incredible and fairly priced. They also have an extensive collection of candy, chocolate, liquor and meats/cheeses. The store itself is very well arranged and inviting.

My wife and I found this little place as we wandered through the streets of Florence. We stopped for a glass of wine and a sample platter of meats and cheeses. It was simply stunning! The wine was beautiful and served perfectly (temperature, glass etc). We had a small platter of meat and cheeses which were accompanied with fits, vegetables... More

After searching around the Duomo for 45 minutes looking for a tiny art store (Zecchi), I literally ran into this heavenly place. Tiny doorway, but super inside (like most of Italy). I happened to be there while a wine tasting was going on for two couples. The sommelier was very kind, engaging, funny and most importantly informative. The waitress was... More

Loved this place, used to love going in for a glass of wine on the side with tables. The unkempt guy who works there is another story. Last trip I had three cases of wine sent home, all arrived safely. His recommendations were not too great, but that's another story. Most recent trip I went in for a glass of... More

This enoteca has a large collection of Italian wines, including wines from small producers. The staff is very courteous, although most of them don’t speak English. If you want to buy good wines call for Antonella, she is very helpful

The charcuterie was excellent as were the wines. However, the wine selections by the glass were somewhat limited and fairly pricey compared with other spots in town. The pour also seemed a bit short.

Although we didn't do a wine tasting the wine we had was delicious. The antipasta plates are so good! You can get all different kinds. The jam and cheese we had in ours was wonderful. I'd loved to have spoken Italian to understand better what all they had to offer.

We traveled to Florence in Sept 2014 from the U.S. on an Abercrombie & Kent tour. This delightful Enoteca & restaurant was on the itinerary for a "light" lunch. We thoroughly enjoyed the wines served copiously along with platter after platter of charcuterie, hearty bread with chicken liver spread, olives, more cheeses. Oh my! What a feast! We completed the... More

A fantastic place on a hot and sunny day for a couple of glasses of wine and maybe some antipasti. Whether other guests had a larger wine and foodtasting or a simple orders as ours all where greeted with a large smile from the hostess.
