Enoteca Pinchiorri, a world-renowned wine-tasting temple is just a stone’s throw away from the Relais Santa Croce in Florence, in the historic Palazzo Jacometti Ciofi in Via Ghibellina.
Founded by Giorgio Pinchiorri and Annie Feolde, the Enoteca Pinchiorri blends and combines Italian and French cuisine, thus creating an international cuisine that relies on the excellent ingredients, the original recipes and elegant presentation.
It is not by chance that this restaurant has been awarded three Michelin Stars.
Impeccable service and a refined setting where every detail is honed to perfection for a unique dining experience, an itinerary of aromas and flavours exalted by a mise en place and by a presentation that render the dishes as alluring to the eyes as they are to the palate.
Both head chefs propose sampling menus consisting of six to eight courses and an à la carte menu that is continuously updated and includes such treats as Scaloppa di fegato grasso con tatin di cipolle,mele golden e lamponi, (Escalope of foie gras and onion tart, golden apples and raspberries), Astic gratinato ai pistacchi con cecina al rosmarino e yogurt (Lobster and pistachio gratin with chick pea, rosemary and yogurt flatbread), Risotto con scampi, nervetti di vitello e polvere di liquirizia (Risotto with scampi, veal tendon and powdered liquorice), Piccione arrosto con miele e spezie (Roast pigeon with honey and spices), Melanzane in carrozza al timo (Breaded aubergines with thyme), or Filetti di sogliola alla plancia con composta di cipolle rosse, zucchine e bottarga di muggine (Sole filet with red onions, courgettes and grey mullet roe).
The dessert cart is brimming with true works of art, like the Puré of fresh figs with walnut biscuits, Linden honey and yogurt jelly or Mint pudding with mango mousse and plums marinated in spices.
The wine cellars is considered to be one of the best in the world and has two different Wine Lists – one for Italian wines and one for International wines – for a total of more than 4000 bottles, not to mention the fine liqueurs to be sampled with precious cigars in the intimacy of the customer smoking room.
