Impeccable reception, very nice decor and ambiance, professional service with a smile. We had the set menu, good quantity and fantastic tastings of every dish. Honestly nothing outrageously memorable, but the whole experience is. Wine list impressive (also for the surcharge) but not comprehensive (a...number of areas of excellent wine producers is not even present). Once in a lifetime is a mustMore

Let yourself be impressed by it all...atmosphere, food, wine, friendly staff...no wonder this is a 3 stars Michelin! Make sure you bring a FAT wallet

We were seated promptly in a beautiful room. There was ample room between tables. The service was impeccable. We selected the Contemporary Menu with the 3 wine pairing. The food arrived in waves of unique preparations. Each with their own little subtleties. One would think...that the "small" portions in the Contemporary Menu wold leave one hungry at the meal's end. Not so. Our main problem was overeating. All in all, a truly memorable meal in a beautiful setting with superb service. I guess that's how you get the 3 stars. Not for the faint of wallet. Straight out with the wine pairing: 400E per person. In the rarified air of the Michelin Guide 2 and 3 star venues, I would have to say that Belconto in Lisbon beat out the Enoteca Pinchiorri. But only by a hair. Both are magnificent restaurants and worthy of their ratings.More

Service was excellent, nice ambience in the restaurant. We were offered small gifts throughout our dinner, nice surprises. The restaurant even has a water menu (like a book just for water). Unfortunately the excellent review stops here. We had the contemporary menu with 3 glass...wine pairing. We wanted to try the best this restaurant has to offer. The food was just OK, however not 3 Michelin standard. We had much better and "to remember" dinner experience with tasting menus + wine pairing in other restaurants for 1/3 of the price or even less, without the 3 Michelin stars. We felt strange, before having dinner here, we thought we can not go wrong with a 3 Michelin star restaurant. For sure we will not return here.More

The seating in the courtyard is very strange, and feels like prison with the high narrow walls. Tables are too close to each other, and you could definitelly feel discomfort all around, as everybody is whispering and you really coudn't talk without disturbing the table...next to you and have them overlisten te conversation, and vice versa. Decoration is tacky and cheap, not something you would expect at such establishments. The service wasn't as attenuative as one would expect, waiters were dressed seemingly from a second hand shop, they do not wear gloves while handling silverware, and the last fork is always placed crookedly and in hurry because the waiter always talks to someone else in the middle of the service, and runs away as quickly as possible, which has nothing to do with Michelin stars, but it plain rude. The wine list is impresive and would make you think you are in France, while Italian wines are grossly underrepresented with literaly just few of the top labels there. For an Italian restaurant of such status, I would expect the focus on local wines and to have a knowledgable sommelier which would bring me something on the table other than Masseto/Sassicaia/Ornellaia because I can get those at any good restaurant troughout the world and are really no brainers. The sommelier was also a bit lacking and didn't really seem knowledgable, this could be due to language barrier (but at 3* should it really be??). Now the food - the biggest dissapointment. We have had the contemporary tasting menu and two dishes were plain uneatable: - Ravioli with escarole, several of the raviolis had something burnt inside them that made them so bitter and were uneatable - Pork cheek caramel, was it the broth or what, but this dish was so salty it was burning our mounths, and we just couldn't finish it. All other dishes were not as bad, but were completely unimaginative and left no particular impression. I had a sense like the chef was trying to impress someone, but he is not talented at it and just goes on with random combinations that make no sense together at all. They are pulling tricks with foams and what not, but they don't make any sense. Eg. the pre-menu item, "foam of sea urchin with tomato sauce" was completely baffling. You got the sewage smell from the sea urchin without the butterines, paired with tomato sauce that would go on a pizza?!? The notable exception I have to make is the Piglet on a spit with millefoglie potatoes. That dish on itself is amazing, and trully masterfully executed. Perfectly tender pork, very fat but you are not drowning in fat, with perfectly crispy skin. Desert is also lacking, again random combination of flavors that dont't even compliment themselfs, but the chocolate selection (which was out of menu item) was very nice. If you are looking at this restaurant to treat yourself with 3* Michelin experience, then don't, save your money and evening and pick something else. The whole experience is not that terrible per se, but with 3* expectations and 1000 euro price tag for two people, you definitelly have a lot of better places to spend your money at and get what you pay for.More

The setting is nice. People are warm and welcoming. The wines are good but greatly overpriced, and Tuscany (a great wine Region) is unforgivably underrepresented. The food is technically well prepared, but the dishes are absolutely uninspired. Not one plate is memorable in the sense...that you will remember it tomorrow. „Worth a trip“? Certainly not. „Worth a detour“? Not really. „Good cuisine“? Well, yes. So one Michelin star, and one would not be so greatly disappointed, especially if compared to its peers (Knogl, Caminada, Humm, Ducasse, Alléno, Adriá, etc).More

Beautiful restaurant in a historical building. Waiters were very friendly and attentive. We had the small tasting menu, which was good with excellent Italian touch. However, quality and taste were not at par with other three stars restaurants we have been to. Loud music didn’t...quite fit the ambience. Sommelier was rather unresponsive to question about the wine we had. The biggest let down was the wine, which was good but way overpriced (by over four times if you bought from a shop). Overall, an enjoyable evening but due to the wine, we will think twice before returning.More

Too many waiters bumping into each other in the little courtyard and above all very badly dressed. It's a pretentious place typical of those you find in medium size touristic towns. The food is over the top without being really tastefull. No real direction or...personnality in the preparations, just lots of would be fashionnable tricks with emulsions, variations on a single ingredient, etc. I wonder what the Michelin critics are doing with their time...The funniest part is probably the wines. I think it's pretty telling when you cannot find any bottle under 200 euros in the phone book they present you (especially in Italy). We tasted one of their cheap wines at 275 euros a bottle, according to the sommelier it was supposed to be one the quintessential tuscan red. Well made but really unremarquable.More

Enoteca Pinchioro was just as advertised. One of the most amazing dining experiences of our lives. Beware the wine list and the sommelier- he’s amazingly knowledgeable and can guide you into whatever damage you’re willing to do. That includes a $7k per person wine pairing....The staff was accommodating in every way, each dish was a work of art, and for a multi course tasting menu the pacing was great - not too fast, not too slow. Pregnant couple next to us had minor adjustments and they were only too happy to adjust their carefully constructed tasting menu.More

I think that sometime they may allow a visit to the cellar even if you are not a client, but you must ask. Certainly you cannot partake the wine
