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!

“Excellent wine selection, perfect food and fantastic service”
Reviewed April 26, 2014

I frequent this lovely wine bar with friends, clients and family. Typically in all of Florence this is the place I would purchase wine for special occasions as I know the owners are very passionate and knowledgable about their wines. Tastings pair perfectly with wine selection that you can leave up to the very knowledgable waiters who are also the owners of the wine bar. Perfect for lunch or a light dinner. Wines are mostly red although they even have a discreet selection of whites and of course champagne.
If you are a lover of Chianti this is the perfect place for you!

“Wonderful experience!”
Reviewed April 21, 2014

This was probably the best meal we've had so far in Italy. We did the wine tasting lunch. The service was excellent, the food was very thoughtfully prepared, and the wines were lovely. We also really enjoyed the explanations and background provided on all of the different wines. Thought the price was totally reasonable for everything provided - especially when compared to how much you can easily spend in the many very mediocre tourist traps around town. Highly recommended!

“Wonderful”

Excellent wine, very knowledgeable staff... An absolute treat.
Wine matched perfectly to the limited but excellent menu. The salami and lamb pasta were tremendous.

“Great wine pairing lunch at the Piazza- gem!”
Reviewed April 7, 2014

We had the wine pairing lunch this past Sunday and we were not disappointed. Yes at €35 a person it is pricey for lunch but the food (I had beef tartare, the gnocchi and chocolate cake my husband chicken liver, spaghetti with lamb and cheese platter) was fantastic and the wine pairings (they weigh it based on what you like the most-we chose red) spot on. Had the best reserve chianti we have had and we aren't big into chianti. The explanations about the wine was friendly and knowledgeable. We even got some tips on wineries in Piemont. What a great find! Make sure you reserve as it is a tiny place, with only 6 tables outside at the edge of the piazza and probably the same inside.

“Amazing Dishes with Inspired Wine Tasting”
Reviewed March 30, 2014

This was our best experience of our 4 nights in Florence. We went for dinner but with the understanding that it is also a wine bar. We had a group of 4 and made a reservation; it is a quite small, but very intimate space. Zeno took care of us immediately and gave us the most memorable night of our entire trip. After choosing 4 starters, Zeno took care of the portions and picking excellent wines for us to try. We had the asparagus which is a must order, a plate of prosciutto, pate, beef tar tar and a plate of cheese that Zeno selected for us. Zeno gave us a detailed description of each wine we tasted, which went excellently with the food we had selected; he has a true enthusiasm and passion for Italian wines. We will absolutely be returning when in Florence next.
