NileGuide Expert tip:
Enjoy the desserts and don't forget to ask for a special bottle of wine as well.
Enoteca Pinchiorri is a restaurant of class and gourmet Italian cuisine. The enoteca entices the palates of many foodies who enjoy the delicatessen of Italy. The exquisite architecture gives the enoteca a prestigious atmosphere. A colorfully decorated space with frescoed ceilings, the Florentine Renaissance beckons as waiters race from table to table. The flavors have been kept close to the kitchen by one of the owners Annie Féolde who has became close friends with small producers and artisans in Tuscany in which she knows where to find the best products from wine to prosciutto for her patrons. Her top chefs, Italo Bassi and Riccardo Stumpy, collaborate together to create tasty and unforgettable dishes. From Spaghetti alla chitarra con crema di piselli to filetti di sgombro marinato, to maialino di latte allo spiedo con scalogno in agro-dolce, verza e petit-salé (carne di maiale salata), carrè d'agnello farcito di lardo di Colonnata con topinambur e crocchette di fagioli al rosmarino
. Giorgio Pinchiorri's wine cellar now holds over 150,000 bottles; it is one of the largest wine celler in Italy and in the world. The pastry side is taken by Loretta Fanella. Imagine eating Marinated strawberries, mascarpone cream, white sesame rice cake, and fresh meringue flavoured with barley malt or Apricot with amaretto and its ice-cream,
Macadamia nuts and coriander. Is your mouth-watering yet?
