Ossi di Seppia Florence

Anyone know about the restaurant Ossi di sepia and its chef Gionata Rossi?
It was opened in Florence in December 2010.

  1. That's a really usual menu, but might be fun. Expensive though.

    1. Here's a blog post that seems to have some info as well as lots of pictures of the food (seems like the chef used to cook in viareggio)

      1. Yes, I had a fantastic meal there last month. Very modern space, creative menu. Worth going to.

          Thank you for your answers!
          I booked in Ossi di Seppia for dinner on Easter Sunday (April 24)
          >minchilli Your blog is wonderful, especially the photos of Burano!

            Thanks! Let me know if you're coming to Rome. I'll have lots of suggestions.
            And I actually just ate my way through Florence last week, so have some other suggestions there if you are interested.

              Thanks again ! Not Rome this time ! Florence and Venice after !
              I've spotted some interesting Rome on your blog!
              For Venice I have my favorite places !

                Well, just in case....
                Florence: Osteria Personale was outstanding.
                Venice: Actually on Mazzorbo, Venissa. Very much worth a trip out to this beautiful island.

                  I wanted to go to Osteria Io Personale for dinner on Easter Monday but will be closed.
                  I think a lunch at Osteria Io Personale ( Easter Sunday lunch) and the restaurant Ossi di Seppia (Easter diner) may do much ;-)
                  At Burano, I like Il Gatto Nero but I note your address in Mazzorbo.

                  1. re: divinecomedie

                    Had an amazing meal at Gatto Nero too. Much different from Venissa.

                      Osteria Personale Easter menu sounds fabulous. Reserve now!
                      And regarding gelato, the beauty is you don't have to choose. You can try them all. I did! :)
