Thank you for your interest in Enoteca Pitti Gola e Cantina. We are a cozy wine shop and wine bar located in Piazza Pitti just across from the Pitti Palace. Our mission is to select the very best territorial, cultural and traditional wines produced in Tuscany and in Italy. Focusing on small production, high-end wines that are difficult to find anywhere else. Our options by the glass strongly represent this very specific selection. Our goal is to inform our clients of the wines and wine making process of Italy. We have a limited but quite special food selection prepared daily by our chef. We offer an a la carte menu featuring Tuscan appetizers, cheeses, charcuterie and hand made first courses. Still, our dishes are designed to compliment your experience with our wines. We are not a restaurant with a full dining menu. Our kitchen is open from 1:00pm to 3:30 pm then again from 7:30 to 10:30. We are closed on Tuesdays. Apart from a la carte dinning we are now proud to offer Dinner with an Owner. A truly unique experience awaits for wine lovers in Florence. One of the three owners of Enoteca Pitti Gola e Cantina will personally guide you through an extensive tasting of our selection of small production, high end Italian wines. Each of the three gentlemen are extremely knowledgeable and passionate about Italian wines. Through the course of the tasting you will have an opportunity to learn from them about the history, culture, processes and traditions of wine making in Italy. Your host will spend the evening working with your specific tastes to create a personalized tasting that can accommodate every wine lover, from the expert to the novice. Accompanied by a customized, tasting menu created by our Chef. This private tasting is extremely exclusive and as such only ONE is offered per night, on Friday and Saturday nights ONLY. Tastings commonly last from 3 to 4 hours, although depending on the clients they have been known to last even longer. As such, tasting reservations are recommended for 7:00pm (19:00). Reservations are required AT LEAST 3 days in advance, based on availability. Upon reservation any and all food specifications must be confirmed such as allergies, food intolerances, vegetarians or vegans. Only ONE menu may be offered for the entire table, so any and all food restrictions will need to be applied to the meal for everyone at the table. Dinner with an Owner is 140,00 euro per person which will include all food and wine. A keepsake copy of your customized menu with wines will be signed by the owner and given to you at the end of the night. We also offer The Wine Club Tasting which is offered exclusively to those clients who are interested in joining The Wine Club. Created to offer clients an opportunity to discover the types of wines that make it into the selections each year and to decide what package best suits their personal taste and needs. During the tasting clients will sample red wines that are representative of the type of wines that are chosen for The Wine Club Selections. Featuring small production, high end Italian wines and when available, our own private labels. The tasting will be accompanied by a selection of local Italian cheeses. We are happy to offer the tasting complementary upon the completion of The Wine Club membership contract. If you would like a copy of the packet and contract for your country of residence it can be found on our website on The Wine Club Page or please let us know and we would be happy to email one to you. The Wine Club Tasting is offered exclusively in the afternoons from 4pm to 6pm and reservations are highly recommended. The Tasting is complementary for 2 people per signed membership contract.

Such good food

We chose this spot at random, just looking for a glass of wine and a snack. We were bowled over by the ravioli we ordered. That little snack and glass of wine ended up being one of the best dining experiences we had in two weeks in Italy. Great, friendly, attentive service too.

Every time we come to Florence, we try to get a table here and until this year, we've never been successful. This time, I was determined and made sure to reserve a table. It is very small, so I think booking is essential. It's all about the wine here-after all, it is an Enoteca-the choice is incredible and the guys... More

We went here last time we were in Florence and came right back this time, because it's just great. We had drinks here twice and lunch twice. It's not cheap (7-9 euro per glas of wine), but it's great wine and they have a nice prosecco arrangement (3 different glasses of prosecco for 15 euros). Their lunch menu is wonderful,... More

First off, this is a wine place first and a food place second. Do not go this place and just expect to order the good food because you might get turned away, which is understandable from their perspective. I started off with a tasting of the chianti's and and some nice glasses of brunello's and then ordered some food to... More

Went with my girlfriend for the lunch wine pairing meal for 35 euros each. Superb dining experience. 4 types of wine with a 3 course meal. Excellent overview of the wines given by the staff there. Food was delicious. Was told of this place by some friends. Would highly recommend!

This was just pure perfection. The food, the wine, the atmosphere - really a stay I will remember for many years. All wines and food we got had a focus on nearby producers. Edoardo guided us through all the wines with incredible knowledge and passion. The location is also great, overseeing the quiet piazza dei pitti.

We chose here on the basis of proximity and good reviews, wanting to try some wines but lacking the enthusiasm for a proper wine tour in August heat! This restaurant, opposite the Pitti Palace was more than sufficient substitute. We had the wine taster lunch, three courses and 4 wines for €35. Each course was a delight of fresh ingredients,...

The most I and my wife liked about this place is the kindness of and nice atmosphere created by the 3 guys running the business. They were always very friendly and carefully to each of the guests. Wine and food are very nice too.

Heads you get the brilliant Sommelier with an incredible grasp of English who pours generous glasses of wine and rushes back and forth with multiple wines for you to taste.

Neighborhood Profile
Pitti
Pitti is a neighborhood characterized by art and history. Renaissance architecture such as Pitti Palace, which houses five museums alone, introduces visitors to the green lungs of spectacular Boboli Gardens. Any visitor can wander through statues, fountains, and panoramic viewpoints. Around the garden, treasures like the Museum of Natural History of the Specola and Villa Bardini guide guests through Florence as the cradle of the Renaissance. End the day with an aperitif in Piazza della Passera or the more romantic Forte di Belvedere, which offers an amazing panoramic view of the entire city.
