Visited this wine bar upon the recommendation of a friend -- loved it. Very intimate setting, the owners staff the bar and made excellent recommendations. Specializes in small wineries. Apps were delicious and simple. While we favor red wine, fell in love with a Hartmann Dona Sauvignon Blanc. Highly recommend.

This wine bar has got it just right. Unlike many other wine bars in Florence they have a fine dining style small menu - but not a pretentious one! There bread basket alone is worth writing home about. The staff speak perfect English and their knowledge of wine is superb. Very passionate and friendly. They have a set of wine... More

We went there for a diner and everything was amazing.. You get the chance to taste wine from 1970/1980 at a reasonable price. You might have to book in advance as the area is very small..

What a wonderful little wine bar. I'd read ahead before visiting Firenze and booked this for lunch, a good choice as it turned out. We happened to pass by a couple of days before our reservation and stopped for a glass (flight of wine) each, what a great decision. The Chianti flight was AMAZING with a 36 and 46 year... More

This is an amazing little restaurant and wine bar! If you want a romantic evening dinner or a lunchtime wine tasting meal (we did both during our stay!) then this is the place to go! Zeno was one of our waiters (and is one of the owners) and what he doesn't know about Italian wine, just isn't worth knowing! Highly... More

My husband and I have become quite fond of Enoteca Pitti Gola e Cantina. We first discovered it last fall while planning a two-day stop in Florence, and knew it was the place for us. We booked a wine lunch and ala carte dinner in the same day (due to our short visit). Zeno was our host for both, and... More

Description
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.

Enoteca Pitti Gola e Cantina is proud to present The Wine Tasting Lunch. A tasting menu comprised of four wines and accompanied by a three course lunch. One of the gentlemen will assist you to select the ideal wine to pair with your dishes and to please your palate from their ample selection of Bubbles, Whites and Reds.
