2020 kicked off with a brand new Gucci’s restaurant. The fashion label has opened Gucci Osteria da Massimo Bottura at the top of its store, in Beverly Hills.
Gucci Osteria da Massimo Bottura occupies the rooftop of the brand’s store on Rodeo Drive. The restaurant has the chicest ambience and serves up a selection of Italian dishes.
Since Alessandro Michele joined the creative team at Gucci, the label became a lifestyle. After its furniture collection, they decided to dive into the restaurant world.
In 2018, they opened Gucci Osteria in Florence. Two years later, Beverely Hills.
The infamous Beverly Hills street is home to all things luxury – now including Gucci’s restaurant. In other words, Rodeo Drive is the kingdom of shopping.
The restaurant takes part of its name from head chef Massimo Bottura. The Michelin-star chef has a partnership with the brand and a long friendship with Gucci’s CEO.

Osteria has a private entrance at street level. Guests are greeted in a lobby upstairs, which is covered in tree-printed wallpaper from Gucci’s homeware range.
Star-shaped spotlights fill the black ceiling, while a red rug with a unique pattern overlays the parquet wooden floor.
The new Osteria combines culture, food and fashion, and surround diners with Gucci Décor touches. You can expect to find traditional herringbone wood floors, red marble tabletops and cherry red velvet banquettes. There’s also Gucci Décor wallpaper, as well as antique mirrors.
The outdoor dining terrace boasts Italian marble mosaic flooring and an antique wooden pulpit. Star forms appear again on the mosaic floors of the restaurant’s outdoor terrace.
The aesthetic of the space is recognizably Gucci, with details from Gucci’s restaurant in Florence. Simultaneously, this new restaurant evokes old Hollywood style.
Gucci Osteria is highly instagrammable and has the best view. It is also the perfect drop-in-for-lunch while you’re shopping affair.
The menu is deeply Italian. Pizza, risotto and Bottura’s famous tortellini are a few of the wonders you can find there.
