The Gucci Osteria in Florence, Italy (Firenze) is the very definition of La Dolce Vita! We are currently touring Italy sourcing new and exciting products for elleKME.  We were delighted to receive an invitation to the Gucci Osteria upon our arrival in Florence.  We've visited the Michelin starred osteria twice now and it won't be the last time!  On our first visit we enjoyed an à la carte brunch including Massimo Bottura’s signature tortellini in a decadent parmesan cream sauce, fantastico!  

This past Sunday during our second visit, we partook in Gucci Osteria's seven course tasting menu which was a glorious 2.5 hour culinary journey infused with flavors from around the globe.  One of us (me) is a vegetarian which Executive Chef Karime Lopez & Co-Executive Chef Takahiko ‘Taka’ Kondo accommodated flawlessly. They prepared a vegetarian equivalent to every course served, for example the Bao Bun was served with a delicate and flavorful eggplant filet instead of pork belly etc. At the time of this writing the seven course tasting menu titled "Our Souvenirs" is priced at 150 € per person, plus wine by the glass or bottle, there is also an option to add a (5 glass) wine pairing at 90 € per person.

Complimentary glasses of Franciacorta Brut 'Cabochon Fuoriserie N°023'
