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!

We arranged for the dinner with the owner - a special evening not to be missed. We had our our table inside and the personable and energetic owner who stayed and worked with us, and only us, all night. The food was fabulous - endless courses paired with wines of his choosing. We must have had at least 12 courses and 18 wines. Though our taste in wine is somewhat different from his, and we would have enjoyed alternatives, the evening was a special event.

Considering what the experience was and what was served, the cost was modest. We will return. Don't miss this!

My wife absolutely loves wine. I know literally nothing about it but am interested. The staff here are so passionate about what they do and it shows in everything they do. Coming here isn't just about the amazing wine, incredible food (which is difficult to put into words how good it was), but it's about the whole experience. We both came away glowing and feeling that we had truly been treated to something special!

I can only join in the praising of Enoteca Pitti Gola e Cantina. Located at the foot of Palazzo Pitti this little wine bar and restaurant truly is a gem. We had the Dinner With An Owner and it was a great experience. Zeno took care of us throughout the whole evening. His enthusiasm for local wine was infectious and his knowledge of the matter remarkable. The food was delicious. We had nine courses with the filet mignon being the best we have ever had. There was not a single course we did not enjoy. If there can be a complaint it would be that the food was almost too plentiful. The selections of wines was even more plentiful, delicious and positively intriguing. We started with tree sparkling wines followed by 4 white wines and 8 red wines. All wines where introduced and explained by Zeno. At the end of the dinner we received a list of all the wines and of the menu as well as a little gift. It was a perfect evening in a beautiful setting with a great host and delicious food and drink.

When we planned our trip to Florence over a year ago I googled, "best wine bar in Florence" and was directed to this place. I've looked forward to it since then and the expectations were exceeded in a big way when we went there. First day in Florence we went for a glass of wine and some cheese, meats etc. mid afternoon. Had several glasses of wine and were taken care of by Zeno one of the owners ... he is awesome! Once he discovered what we liked we left the choice of wines in his hands and he never failed us! These guys know their wines and they know how drink them (properly)! After the mid afternoon lunch, we reserved a table for dinner that night ... again it was amazing! We then reserved a table for three nights later which was our last night in Florence! Pasta is amazing! Limited menu but very high quality. If you love wine you cannot miss this place when you go to Florence!!!
