To advertise the Cantinetta Antinori in the Palace of the same name is an overstatement. La Cantinetta is in a corner of the palace and you don't see the palace, at least at night. Then, forget about a romantic dinner in the gardens of a palazzo in Florence.
The wine offer which is the main reason you go there was disappointing. I ordered Solaia, Antinori great supertuscan, and 2008 was the only year offered. Why? This is not what you expect.
92 at WS and 93 at RP I will go with WS. Then it comes price. You are expecting a decent price. NO, it has a markup of at least 50% which I found high.
At lunch I have tried to my entire satisfaction Antinori Chianti Classico and it was a far better experience and at 22€, 10 times better than the Solaia 2008.
The buffala mozzarella was ok. The parpadelle with tuscan ragu was excellent and my steak as well as my wife tagliata was superb. A Grape pudding was very good.
I will not come back if I don't hear reviews indicating the wine offer and prices has substantially improve.
Arrivederci to my favorite Antinori family.
