Il Pittore - Great Food, but Gouging Wine List

jmk38 | Feb 27, 2012 12:28 PM

Four of us dined at Il Pittore the other evening. Each of us ordered a different starter and a different
main, so had the chance to sample a wide range of the restaurant's offerings. All of the food was excellent - interesting dishes, carefully prepared and creatively presented. The down side of the
evening - and I think it is a big negative - is the wine list. The markup is ridiculous - fairly ordinary
wines for $47-49/bottle, well over $100 for anything interesting or special. Very ordinary glass of
white: $12 (may explain why the bar was so empty). Mr. Starr, is this really necessary??
