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. For reservations please let us know what date, time, name, how many people and what type of reservation you are interested in making; an a la carte lunch or dinner, a reservation for The Wine Club Tasting, Dinner With An Owner or The Wine Tasting Lunch. We are closed On Tuesdays all day. We thank you so much for expressing your interest in us and we do very much hope to get to see you at Enoteca Pitti Gola e Cantina soon!

“THE BEST PLACE FOR WINE IN FLORENCE”
Reviewed March 5, 2013 via mobile

I've been here quite a few times and every time one of these three eloquent and very knowledgable young men blows me away with a different mouth watering wine. They know what they are talking about and have an obsession for quality. Nowhere quite like it in Florence.

“beautiful dining experience”
Reviewed March 2, 2013

After researching so many choices to dine in Florence, one of our 'must do's' included taking in the wine tasting experience. Our host was incredibly knowledgeable in the wines he selected for us (14 in total) and matched beautifully with the hand-made food selections. We sat outside facing the Pitti Palace. An absolutely gorgeous evening!

“Like a tapas bar, but with Italian supercharges!”
Reviewed March 2, 2013

The place is small and the center is a nice bar where you can hang and have a glass of wine during a slow afternoon on the weekend. The staff consists of 3 young men who look like bankers first. But they approach servicing like that they look: professionally, fast and accurate. I really liked the in depth recommendations of white wine and great ham and cheese collection we got from them. The pricing is very good, the wine selection is vast and the service great. Hope to come back soon! This place is a wine jewel!

“Amazing Quality, Care, and Value.”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

Visited Pitti Gola twice at lunch time, over the course of a few months, and had the same incredible experience. We ordered around three dishes to share (Marzia was in the kitchen) and the staff took care of pairing the wine (Zeno, and then Manuele). The food was outstanding and the wine was perfectly paired. The local cured ham with gorgonzola, mushroom ravioli, eggplant cannelloni (a seasonal dish), and the pork with fennel over pasta were all exceptional and fresh (sit in the right seat and you can watch Marzia work!). Also, how many restaurants directly in front of a tourist destination in Italy will split glasses of wine for three people???
