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. The three courses made by our Chef will change frequently and feature fresh, seasonal ingredients. You will have your choice from 2 options for appetizer, first course and dessert. The Wine Tasting Lunch is 35,00 euro per person which will include all food and wine. Reservations are not required but are highly recommended. Our kitchen is open for lunch from 1:00pm to 3:30pm daily, except on Tuesdays as we are closed.

“The best wine bar i have been in Florence !”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2013

If you like tiny places, this is THE place. Great wine and atmosphere. No more than maximum 20 people can fit in this place, but even when it raining this is a great place to eat tasty starters and taste nice wines by the glass. Very close to ponte Vecchio, outside the Palazzo pitti. If you visit Florence don't forget to visit this place!

“THE BEST PLACE FOR WINE IN FLORENCE”
5 of 5 bubbles 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”
5 of 5 bubbles 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!”
5 of 5 bubbles 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!
