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!

As rain started to ruin our day, we decided to look for a wine bar try the local wines. We are so glad we did. One of the partners, Manuele spoke with us for hours. We tried lots of wine, and took some to go! Great afternoon and have already recommended this place to others, who also had a great time.

My husband found this place on trip advisor. I cannot begin to tell you of the service they have. Zeno, Eduardo and Manuel own this restaurant. All are very personal. They really know their wine. Recommending and knowing about each wine they serve is very important to them. And the food. They have a chef on site that is fantastic.

Myself and my fiancé ate here twice - for dinner and for lunch, over the space of a few days. Each time a different experience, but both times equally as rewarding. Pitti Gola e Cantina is definitely based more around enjoyment of their many fine wines, but don't let that distract from the joyous cuisine. We both found each visit to be a journey - initially the wines were selected to match the food, but on the second visit, Edoardo took us through both the wine and dining menu and built a thoroughly enjoyable evening. Great value for money, fantastic personal, yet non-intrusive customer service. Couldn't have asked for more. Perfect to sit back, relax and enjoy. I just hope everyone has as much fun as we did.

This wine bar lived up to it's many fine reviews. Be sure to reserve as it is not very big but you will be welcomed with open arms. The six of us had a wine tasting experience with some light food which was very filling. Had lots of fun, drank about 6 or 7 wines...had a great time there...don't miss it.

Have scored this a 4 perhaps unfairly because we were sooooo impressed with the first visit, we went for a second, which wasn't as good. On the first visit, we were hosted by the excellent Zeno. He was extremely knowledgeable about wine and showed us a video of how the wine we were tasting was produced. He brought wine for us to try based on our tastes (my fiancé wanted a white for red drinkers and he hasn't stopped talking about the Damijan that Zeno brought out since!). We also ordered some food to go with the wine. We ordered two dishes to share (went for the wine really not the food). This was a real surprise. We ordered 'Asparagus and poached egg' and chicken liver terrine. Both were amazing! The asparagus and poached egg came as two portions in small jars...really sweet of them to do this since we we sharing. When we went back we had one each of these because they were so tasty (seriously, just get one!) and these came in bigger jars. Still amazingly good but the smaller ones were more of an intense flavour. The terrine was also excellent. On the second visit, Zeno wasn't there. The service was really good but just not the same as the previous trip (not much info on wine or recommendations and we were left more to ourselves)...still great but only a very good rather than an exceptional.
