Then there is a reason to go just a little out of your way.
La Cucina del Garga is one of those reasons.
|Alessandro and Corrado- we had a incredible private lunch- lucky ladies|
Part of Florence's culinary history was located on via del moro, Trattoria Garga, run by artist Giuliano Gargani and his Canadian wife Sharon Oddson. Wildly painted walls and twisted Tuscan recipes were their trademark.
Giuliano and Sharon's son Alessandro left Florence and spent 7 years in New York, honing his skills and is now back in Florence with his wife to raise his children where he grew up.

I went when it first opened and had a fabulous lunch with clients and we went back just yesterday and was pleased to see that the restaurant is now decorated with art by Giuliano and his friends, bringing the warmth and craziness that was Garga, to Alessandro's new place.

The Old Garga is closed now and Alessandro is carrying in on the family tradition with his own touch.
