Enoteca Pinchiorri is one of only eight three-star Michelin restaurants in all of Italy. Sample dishes at the eatery include lobster topped with an olive crust, young roasted duck and apple ravioli, pigeon with peas and mint leaves, and sea bass with wild mushrooms. There are also extravagant tasting menus with wine pairings from the restaurant's extensive wine cellar.
