Having opened in 2018, Gucci Osteria has been inspiring a palette of different creative cuisines for its customers. As the original Gucci Osteria, the expectations were high and did not disappoint. Karime Lope was the chef, hailing from Mexico City, and her cuisines were inspired by different places in the world. We chose the tasting menu called “The World Through Our Eyes” for 150 euros without the wine pairing which included 7 courses of carefully curated dishes.
We started with freshly baked bread and cream along with breadsticks and moved onto the multiple courses:
Course 1: Purple corn tostada with marinated bonito, a hint of spice and citrus
Course 2: Chawanmushi, asparagus, shrimp of Tirreno and Franco’s herbs
Course 3: Spaghettini, cockles and clams.
Course 4: Steamed bun with pork belly of cinta senese
Course 5: Grilled lamb, green tomatoes and jalapeño but since I don’t eat lamb, they switched out the lamb for caviar and a filet
Course 6: Cherry, ricotta e white beer
Course 7: Peach, kombucha and thyme
along with several extra dishes to try
Overall, the whole experience was luxurious and was well worth the price. We also got to skip the line to go to the Gucci Garden next door! The museum was 8 euros and featured different floors and room of the various collections of Gucci throughout the decades.
