Please find below the reviews of our visits to the restaurant:
Saturday, February 6, 2010 we returned after many years the Enoteca Enotria Restaurant in Via delle Porte Nuove 50r in Florence tel + 39 055 354 350 www.enotriawine.it . The restaurant is located near Porta al Prato in an area where, oddly enough to Florence, you may also find parking in front of the restaurant. Once inside we found ourselves before a bar with gourmet delicacies of every kind, but we went straight to the table ... driven by hunger.
Enotria welcomes you in an elegant and informal setting, very nice furnishings and details, with wine bottles everywhere, bookstores, magazines and books of gastronomy that you can also browse through while you're at the table. Even the equipment is taken care of, with nice wicker placemats and white linen tablecloths.
The Tuscan cuisine is ricercata- The menu is very inviting and offers equal measure of meat and fish dishes. The main menu feature is that it proposes for each dish a glass of wine in combination: a nice way to sample different wines and enjoy the best matches from those in the know. Wines for serving meals on the table, the owner brings the bottles on the table and while serving wine provides you with detailed information on the bottle. The wines are kept in an excellent way with a special tool which, through the introduction of nitrogen into the bottles, preserves the maximum quality.
Returning to the menu if you do not remember bad appetizers cost 9 euros and 4 euros of wine, the first 9 Euro instead of wine and 4.5 Euro, while the second 18 Euro with 5 euro wine. The menu also offers 3 excellent tasting courses, ie three menu with appetizer, first and second and the three wines paired with 40 Euro. We opted for two tasting courses, a Tuscan and one "all meat".
We started with a carpaccio with artichokes and parmesan cheese paired with a Bonarda and with a typical Tuscan appetizer combined with an almost pure Sangiovese. Obviously we do not remember all the labels ... but trust that were excellent as all the dishes. Then we moved to a tomato soup and a lasagna decomposed to exceptional boar sauce with two wines always excellent. Finally a roast suckling pig with potatoes and a tartare, both combined with a chianti. After the three course tasting menu we were already exceedingly rich and unfortunately we skipped dessert, too bad because the list was very inviting. In total the two tasting menus, a bottle of water and two coffees we spent 42 euros each. I would say a quality / price very good.
We ate very well and enjoyed the friendliness of the owner and wine explanations, will definitely Enotria wine shop!
