Mixed feelings. Service was orchestrated to perfection. The wine list is impressive but unviable for most guests. Food was good but not memorable or particularly innovative. The decor is outdated: the ceiling is cracking, the tablecloths are old, the placemats could be from ikea. The...stars are warranted for the wine but not necessarily the dishes. The sommelier will rant about people not appreciating such a place anymore, and that is just it. They are stuck in our grandparents’ generation. If you are around 35 or younger, book a 1-star in a renovated palazzo and treat yourself to an experience, not just a name. It will cost you half as much too.More

It is still as good as it ever was. The service is impeccable and food is just wonderful. Excellent sommelier, grand wine list (expensive yes) and wonderful and ample white truffles with great fettuccine.

Excellent food and ambiance. We took the contemporary menu. Great sommelier to help you with your wine choice. Between the carrot cake dessert and the chocolates/coffee there were two excessive desserts that were not needed. But overall a great experience!

We (4 Friends from Zurich) visited this marvellous Restaurant on September 24th, 2020 for Dinner in this special COVID-19- Time. The staff was perfectly kind and welcoming. We had the big tasting menu and the Sommelier recommended us compatible wines. The food was really extraordinary-...every course surprised us - and it was the best 3star-rated Restaurant we have ever been. We want to send the Team greetings and our best wishes and we really to repeat this event and looking for the next possibility. Ist was really worth it- we don‘t regret any Cent we paid.More

It was my wifes birthday present, dinner at Enoteca. The problem was that I forgot to inform Enoteca about this, but when I mention this to the waiter (who was excellent in his performance) they arrange this in a heartbeat. Marvelous surprise. But now to...the experience: From the moment we arrived at the door with our 2 dogs (mother and daughter) to the time we left we were completely taken care of. Entire staff from Top Chef Annie to the doorman (whose name I unfortunately do not remember the name of) treat us like old friends who return. You can not ask for a better treatment. The food and presentation were prefect and we want to thank you all for a wonderful evening. When we left, my wife received a beautiful rose as a farewell gift. You are the best!! Next time in Florence we will be back.More

Upon arrival we were greeted warmly by Mr Pinchiorri himself and a host of waiting staff all dressed beautifully and wearing masks. We were served a small glass of Spumante and a water menu. We decided to sample the contemporary tasting menu which was at...€250 a head without wine. Had there been a wine pairing available we may have taken it as the wine bible that was set upon the table was both overwhelming and grossly overpriced. Having had a fair amount of experience in Michelin starred restaurants I can honestly say I found the wine list a little offensive. One does not need to pay €500 for a decent bottle of wine and with very few below this price we eventually settled on a white around the €100 mark. It was clear to us from the start that Enoteca is not catering for people who love food but people with large pockets which was disappointing. We were served an amuse bouche of pickled turnip, a beautiful looking but bland chickpea leaf and an olive made of peanut. The “olive” was lovely and surprising. Followed but a pre-starter of a Porcini mushroom mousseline which was delicate and delicious. The contemporary menu began with a truly terrible dish: White grouper carpaccio with cod mayonnaise, radishes and red pepper oil. If I hadn’t been governed by my British politeness I would have sent this dish back to the kitchen. One should never be served fish with a pungent smell. The fish would not cut on the plate either and one was forced to take a large unpleasant mouthful. We did not eat this course but when the plates were cleared we were not asked if everything was ok either. Not good! After this, one of the highlights of the menu: Ravioli with swiss chard -roasted, not boiled- caviar and smoked herring milk. The textures and the flavours worked well together and was in our estimation the most creative dish on the menu. Next Squid in a thin layer à la plancha, with dried porcini mushrooms, parsley and black truffle. Again I found this dish a little unpleasant. In my opinion it did not hang together well and I couldn’t really understand what inspired the chef to make it. What followed was a snail dish substituted for lobster. The lobster was delicious as only lobster can be with a sort of peanut crust with a basil purée and a lobster pate beside it. The basil overpowered the lobster when eaten together. The next course was one of the best we tasted all evening. Spaghetti alla chitarra with seafood, shellfish, and bottarga bread crumbs. A delicious flavour and perfectly cooked seafood. A true gem and rather beautiful. If only all the courses had been like this! After our pasta course we were served another fish course of roasted red mullet: Mullet fillets wrapped in Tuscan bread, shallots cooked under saltmussels marinara. Again there was nothing entirely beautiful or delicious about this course. Quite bland and uninspired and not a dish worthy of three Michelin stars. A most delicious Mora Romagnola piglet on the spit, salad of onions cooked under the ashes and potato millefeuille. This along with the ravioli and seafood pasta, were by far the best dishes we ate all night. An inspired plum with a basil foam was a pre-dessert course, I enjoyed this. Soft cake with carrots and ginger, candied cherry tomatoes with spices and caramel cream. A sort of deconstructed carrot cake was quite delicate but the individual components were a little lacking in flavour. A mouthful of all of them together was lovely but again nothing inspiring. I’m really so sorry to be so critical of this establishment which has clearly earned its name and accolades through years of love and hard work but I think perhaps they need to re-evaluate and find some new inspiration. With the world on the brink of a major recession and all of us affected severely by the pandemic, I woke up this morning with a feeling of regret for having parted with such a lot of money for a truly disappointing meal in one of the worlds best restaurants.More

We took the full 250 euro tasting menu which was absolutely great. Then we took a 200 euro 3 wine pairing which by itself was also pretty darn good. However the whole experience is just sloppy. Water is not included. God knows if the cheese...they offer is included. The staff cannot answer you as to wether you should slow down on your wine and save it for two more dishes. The experience just feels completely disconnected. Then considering that this has 3 Michelin stars I feel completely annoyed. Remove two stars and I can understand and appreciate what was delivered, while expensive, they at least only have 1 star then. It was nice that they allowed what seemed to be a frequent customer to bring his lovely dog along. However the German couple next to us complained and excluded items from their menu constantly because the lady didn’t eat lobster or snails etc. Then it felt like they got all this attention because they were a pain in the ass. I would recommend asking the staff if you will get a desert wine with the package you chose because they were too inept to explain exactly how their insanely priced wine packages work. (2750 euro for a package. You better pour me out of the restaurant a week later) Either way. This restaurant should have some stars removed. They are resting in their laurels. Their breads, don’t even compare to some other three star restaurants. I cannot wait for our second visit to La Pergola in Rome in two nights time to wash this disappointment away. I rarely bother giving reviews so pleas, if you are reading this and have been to a few three or even two star restaurants, be aware. Choose your wines wisely as the staff do not care what you take and barely understand what you want. If this is your first three star restaurant, I wouldn’t be surprised if you were disappointed as well.More

If you like fine dining this is a must go in Florence. It is an incredibly good restaurant, where an army of waiters will take care of your every wish. You should have an idea of European dining etiquette though, because it is celebrated and...expected here. This is old school. The kitchen is very very good and some dishes are truly divine. The foie gras for example was the best we ever had. If I have any criticism at all, then that some of the dishes with white truffle, which is something you can add during truffle season, did not really feel that well integrated. Truffle should deeply enhance and elevate the dish. That did not really happen in one instance. Anyway, we very much enjoyed the incredible food, the wine and the great service. Thank you to the two waiters who made the evening unforgettable. A perfect dinner! We will be back.More

I had a multi-course tasting menu (with the least expensive wine-pairing option) and was delighted with everything. The menu was varied and well-balanced, providing many highlights and leaving a very agreeable final impression. I'm at a loss to explain how some reviewers found the cooking...too salty, as I don't like too much salt, either, whereas I didn't find the food salty here at all. Service was excellent; I was even given a tour of the amazing wine cellar, and they threw in some extras free of charge. The dining room was cozy and pleasant. My only gripe is that they now seem to put solo diners on the waiting list automatically (try it yourself--click on one person and see how their calendar turns yellow).More

I think that sometime they may allow a visit to the cellar even if you are not a client, but you must ask. Certainly you cannot partake the wine
