“Wonderful evening”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2014

Went here for our 15 year anniversary. We were very well taken care of. Wine was wonderful, and the food was unlike any we had eaten in Florence. Try and get there. You won't be disappointed!!

“Do not miss this place on your trip to Florence”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

My husband and I had a wonderful experience with Zeno last year with our wine tasting and meal experience, that we had to come back this year again to do it all over again! Zeno is very informative on all of the wines he has. Definitely try the experience where he chooses the wine and the food you will eat to go with it - you will not be disappointed! Everytime we eat here we live happy, full and more educated on wine - we even bought several cases to ship home as what he offered for choices we could not find anywhere else! Truly a wonderful experience and we recommend it to all of our friends travelling to Florence! During our dinner, I even booked a reservation to come back with my girlfriends for our future trip!

Also, while my family was visiting the Pitti Palace the next day, my husband and I just had to go back - have some more wonderful wines with the prosciutto and truffle gorgonzola! Amazing everytime! I cannot wait to go back - and my husband is jealous that he will not be with me!

“We felt like we were dining in the Pitti Palace!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

We made a reservation as we had read the reviews and knew the place did not have many covers.

Right opposite the Pitti Palace, the location is amazing and only three minutes walk from the Ponte Vecchio.

We were greeted by Zeno who looked after us brilliantly for the whole night.

He asked what sorts of wine we preferred and promptly produced glass after glass of wonderful Italian wines to accompany and beautifully complement amazing dishes of Tuscan food.

His knowledge and enthusiasm for his subject shone through and we tried wines that we would not have considered previously and brought away ideas (and a bottle) to try at home.

It was a fantastic evening - grazie mille, Zeno!

“The best meal we had in Florence”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

My wife and I had planned a little walking tour in this area of Florence and planned to try this restaurant for lunch. The hours indicated that it would open at 1pm but in true Italian style opened at around 1:15. We opted to sit inside as it was so hot on the day we were there. What a wonderful lunch and one of the best meals we enjoyed while in Italy for two weeks. Everything we had was prepared to perfection. A stand out was ravioli with a cold tangy tomato sauce which was exactly what we needed on a hot day. We tried several different wines. There was only 4 or 5 tables inside and one server. Since we were alone in the restaurant for some time we had a great conversation with him. He provided several good vineyard recommendations for our week in Tuscany. Once he heard of our love of Brunello he treated us to a mini-tasting of two Brunellos of different vintages from two vineyards that are adjacent to one another. He decanted both and thoughtfully labeled everything so we knew what we were tasting. While we expected to stop for a short bite to eat and a glass of wine we were there for a couple hours. It was a very memorable experience.

“Fabulous food and wine with amazing service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

We chose Pitti Gola for a special occasion and were thrilled with every aspect of our evening! The staff is amazing and super knowledgeable. They work closely with you to choose a wine based on your own preferences and tastes (even if you don't think you know that much about wine). The food was fabulous and unique - tuscan with a twist with excellent fresh ingredients. The setting was perfect sitting outside watching the moon rise over Palazzo Pitti, and the staff didn't hurry us out even though we were the last table and we stayed well past midnight. We will definitely be back again soon!
