A key figure among a new generation of Italian chefs, Massimo Bottura draws a fine line between tradition and innovation at his three star Michelin restaurant “Osteria Francescana” in the heart of Modena’s historic center.

He describes his kitchen as, ‘Territorial Cuisine seen from a distance of ten kilometers…’
Bottura invites surprise by breaking the rules with unexpected combinations of familiar ingredients in a minimalist setting surrounded by contemporary art and Italian design. Osteria Francescana is dedicated to finding, supporting and promoting artisan producers and local products.
