The Gucci Garden arrives in Florence

One of our favourite brands, Gucci, has opened its first restaurant in one of our favourite cities, the culturally saturated, Florence. Gucci Osteria is led by Massimo Bottura, a three Michelin Star chef, making it one of the top restaurants in the world.

The special eatery is a part of a larger space, Gucci Garden, which was designed by the brand’s Creative Director, Alessandro Michele, with the aim of displaying pieces of Gucci history interpolated with contemporary art and recent works.

Finding its home at Palazzo della Mercanzia, a site that formerly housed Gucci Museo, the space has been completely remodeled and also features a bazaar-style store offering one-of-a-kind items, the Gucci Garden Galleria and exhibition rooms.

If you’re keen to have a bite to eat, expect dishes like Parmigiano Reggiano tortellini and mushroom risotto at the 50-seater ristorante, priced between $30-$50AUD a dish.

Entry to the Gucci Garden is $12 and goes towards restoring projects in Florence.

So, when are we off to Florence?
