What can I say that hasn't been said already? The experience is very intimate and the chefs came out to greet everyone and make sure we were enjoying our dinner which was nice. They gave us a complimentary glass of champagne though it wasn't Dom ( I can't remember what they gave us but it was good.) You could do the 5, 9, or 20 course degustation. The 9 and 20 cost the same but we weren't hungry enough for the 20 so we opted for the 9. As for the wine, they bring an obscenely large book that is wheeled in its own cart! Did I have the patience to go through that book? Definitely not! Instead,we did a wine pairing which allowed you to pick between 3 to 6 wines paired with your meal with wines in each tier(page) having an assortment of wines listed for you to pick between. The pairings started at 185 euro for the lowest tier wine list at 3 glasses to 1500 euro for the 3 glasses in the highest tier. We opted to do a mid tier wine selection with 4 wines at 385 euro per person. We left the option of what wines to have with our meal to the sommelier. The sommelier did a great job of pairing the wines for the food we were having and fulfilled the special request that we had of wines in the Tuscany region. Our service was impeccable and most of the food was amazing with the exception of the lamb which was overcooked. We did receive a book with the finest restaurants and the chocolates before we left. We did not get a complimentary taxi back to the Four Seasons like one of the other reviewers mentioned that they got. All told we had spent over 1500 euro for our meal! It is expensive but definitely worth the experience. Would I do it again? Not anytime soon! There are many other 3 stars to experience! :-) Oh, and yes we did get a tour of the wine cellar which was definitely a nice touch to the end of the night and should not be missed!

Well it is an expensive restaurant but what they offer is not just food but an unforgettable experience. It was our anniversary and this was the best celebration we could plan

I ate some of the best food I've ever eaten and likewise the wine. I think the price is definitely justified - You get what you pay for, and then some. Just fantastic.

Like most 3 star restaurants, Enoteca Pinchiorri is incredibly expensive and the words "value" or "can a meal be worth $1,500" should never really enter the discussion. The real question is how good was the meal and all we can say is that the meal we had on a rainy mid December night was spectacular. Baby duck and baby pork were our mains after sensational truffle ravioli and tagliatelle. The wine list's pricing is all but insulting, but not the wines which were nothing short of brilliant. Of course when you pay absurd prices, you get some absurd benefits such as the complimentary 2002 Dom Perignon when you arrive; gifts of chocolates and wine when you leave and of course they pay the taxi fare back to your hotel or apartment. So if you are going to be thinking about the money, I say...don't go. If you want an incredible meal, great service, beautiful room, table, linens, tableware etc. etc etc then surrender your wallet and head to EP.

Good food, nice experience, absolutely impressive cellar, buy way, way over priced. It was my second time there. Service was excelent. The food is not more than good. Wine List is impressive, but wines are charged around 7x its real value.
