Massimo Bottura
L’Osteria Francescana

Massimo Bottura:

“Right now we are 40 people working in Osteria Francescana, for 28 or 30 covers a night. So, it’s totally the opposite of a business. You cannot survive with that. But we believe in those kinds of dreams and so I keep investing, and reinvesting, and reinvesting.”

About the restaurant:

The restaurant where Massimo Bottura has been challenging the traditions of the Italian kitchen for the past 20 years. It has three Michelin stars and was ranked 2nd place by The World's 50 Best Restaurants in 2015.
