Gucci Osteria restaurant

Buon appetito.

Following in the footsteps of Tiffany & Co’s Blue Box Cafe in NYC, Gucci has opened a restaurant in the heart of Florence.

Gucci Osteria is helmed by three Michelin Star chef Massimo Bottura (of one of the top restaurants in the world, no less).

The space is housed in the site that was originally Gucci Museo, the museum which opened its doors in 2011. It has now received a total revamp, combining the restaurant, a fashion boutique, exhibition spaces and a cinema room under the new concept ‘Gucci Garden’.

Gucci Osteria is a 50-seater high-end restaurant, serving up dishes like Parmigiano Reggiano tortellini, pork belly buns and mushroom risotto for roughly $30-$45AUD per dish.

The overall space was designed by Gucci creative director Alessandro Michele, with an aim to display curated pieces throughout Gucci history, along with recent work, memorabilia and contemporary art.

If you’re simply after entry to Gucci Garden, admission will cost you $12, which will go towards the support of restoration projects around Florence.
