Forget the cliché that fashionistas only live on salad – designer meals are where it’s at, and we have Gucci to thank.
Gucci Osteria has opened up in the much-loved Italian city of Florence and is helmed by Michelin-starred chef and patron of award-winning Osteria Francescana, Massimo Bottura, and the Creative Director of Gucci, Alessandro Michele.
The all-day restaurant opened in the also-new Gucci Garden within the 14th century Palazzo della Mercanzia, which was once home to the famous Gucci Museo. The Garden is an interactive space and described as “real” by Michele.

“It belongs above all to the mind, populated with plants and animals: like the snake, which slips in everywhere, and in a sense, symbolizes a perpetual beginning and a perpetual return.”
The museum is filled with vintage and modern Gucci designs, art and video installations, and the exciting new restaurant.
Of course, with a powerhouse chef like Bottura, the menu for Gucci Osteria is nothing short of amazing. Amongst the decadent options are Parmigiano Reggiano tortellini, Peruvian-inspired tostadas, pork belly buns and mushroom risotto for 20-30 euros per dish, as reported by Reuters.
So save up your Euros, pack your bags, and indulge in fashion and food (we’re looking at flights to Florence right now).
