Gucci Osteria, an intimate restaurant by world-renowned chef Massimo Bottura, opened in January 2018. The Osteria forms part of Gucci Garden, the eclectic palazzo in Piazza della Signoria in Florence, the birthplace of Gucci . In line with the spirit of creative collaboration that characterises the Gucci Garden, the Gucci Osteria da Massimo Bottura is curated by the internationally renowned chef of the same name. Founder of the three Michelin starred Osteria Francescana in Modena, Italy, Massimo Bottura has created a menu for House's culinary destination together with chef Karime Lopez Moreno Tagle. The seasonally-changing menu is inspired by the team’s culinary travels, global origins and experience, and a passion for art and music, applied to Italian cuisine. The restaurant is also a reflection of Florence’s historical significance as a cultural confluence and creative melting pot during the Renaissance period, an important theme and inspiration for both Massimo and Karime. To emphasise this idea, the verses of a 15th-century carnival song by Lorenzo de Medici, The Song of the Seven Planets, is written in gold letters on the upper part of the walls.The restaurant also offers an ornate private dining room named Foliage, which hosts up to 14 guests.

The food was excellent! The stuff were very friendly. I would love to visit Osteria again. We took Massimo Bottura signature dishes such as tagliatelle and emilga burger and a lobster roll. After the lunch we got a free ticket to the Gucci Garden museum.

This was our first time and what a wonderful experience it was. We did the tasting menu with (3 glass) wine pairing and we’re treated to some beautifully prepared and presented dishes. The staff were very polite and knowledgeable. Would highly recommend this for special occasions or if you just wish to step outside the box and try something different. Would love to do it again if we’re ever back in Florence. Thank you for a fantastic experience. Steve & Joanne Smith

In a month of restaurants in France and Italy, this was one of the best, if not the best. Imaginative, succesful dishes like the tostada and the pigeon salad made dinner a complete success. Servicewas exemplary, the wine list excellent, the bill appropriate.
Go!

Fantastic food and excellent service in a beautiful location, what more can you ask for. An extra-special treat for anyone visiting Florence. We chose the 5 course tasting menu with 5 matched wines, and each course was beautifully presented and accompanied by amazing wines, expertly described by the friendly and very stylish waiting staff. Could not find any negatives and would also highlight the seamless accommodation of my partners gluten intolerance in the slightly tweaked menu they were served.

We were pleasantly surprised how delicious the food was and the evening as well. They would do well to put a few of these in other parts of the world, especially the U.S.

Great location, nice service although wine only served after food already 10 min on the table. Nice food but only tiny portions. 4 table spoons of risotto with 2-3 sliced shrimps for 40,- Euros...

Overhyped. Limited vegetarian options and little done to accommodate any changes. Waiters forgot half of our orders, which meant one person only got their drink half way through the meal. Overrated not worth it.

Traveling through Florence we decided to join a group of friends to enjoy a meal at Gucci. The store was nice to checkout, but had no sizes (as to be expected). The restaurant was beautiful, and the food was excellent. However it was very overpriced for the lack of ambient lighting or music, and more importantly the terrible service. Our server was very nice but didn’t know anything about the food, or wine. When we asked the manager some questions she was incredibly rude, but again, probably as to be expected from Gucci....

Would reccomwnd stopping by the store, don’t waste your time or money eating here, many much better local places in Florence.

We expected an outstanding meal and then it was so much more. Tastes from around the world in the heart of Florence and incredibly attentive and thoughtful service. I have to admit that I thought it would be "touristy", but it turned out to be a unique and unexpected experience. We went for the food, but were equally wow'd by the staff.

Disappointed about the rush of moving from one course to the other. The overall feeling was that the taboe was booked 90mins later for another couple. I hardly had time to finish the wine of one course before I got the next course served. Not the class you would expect. I recommend you should forbid tourists to take pictures- it looked like a "instagram session" instead of a Bottura restaurant.

It was just awful. It was dead silence inside, server doesn't speak English, not well trained and doesn't know how to recommend the food, etc.
Just awful and annoyed with the service and food portion and quality.
Never again.

Amazing experience guided by the hands of Bottura, offering a glimpse of sone of his recipes, but expanding the menu with international influences thanks to the executive chef. A unique position in the heart of Florence and the visual mastery of Gucci makes it truly unique.
