Gurdulù: very spiritual country dishes orchestrated by a female chef


The latest fashion hotspot in Florence, Gurdulù is beloved for its neo-classical decor, unstructured menu, and the culinary flights of fancy of its very promising chef Entiana Osmenzeza.

In a room adorned with blue and grey Fornasetti wallpaper, Gurdulù, which borrowed its name from a character in Italo Calvino's novel The Non-Existent Knight, opened in December 2015. In this unusual restaurant, gastronomy becomes snacks—small portions, best enjoyed with a cocktail or a glass of wine from the 250+ wine list, prepared by Entiana Osmenzeza in the open kitchen.

Of Albanian origin, Entiana was fascinated as a child by Balkan cuisine. After travelling in France and Italy, she worked under Alain Ducasse, Fulvio Pierangelini, and at Noma in Copenhagen, before taking over the kitchens of the prestigious Westin Excelsior Florence restaurant. Fond of unusual experiences, she brings her sleek style to traditional dishes like whole wheat ravioli with tripe and a hazelnut soufflé to die for.
