Gunè are all of us.

Women who love to cook and Women who don’t know how to cook.

Women who love to enjoy the moments that being at the table gives, and Women who eat meals quickly because they always have something to do.

But Gunè is still something deeper.

She is a woman who comes from further away and who embodies our grandmothers and mothers.

Because we know that the kitchen was born female and Gunè loved to cook.

She has always cooked and not only because she had to do it, but because she liked to experiment, mix and remix different ingredients, flavors and colors.

She created recipes that gave emotions to those who sat at his table thanks to that particular touch that was born from the knowledge of the raw materials of his territories, Tuscany and Lucania, from his inspiration and a good dose of courage.


Yes, because in the kitchen as in life it takes courage.

Gunè had courage to sell. Born near Matera, she moved to Florence for love and here she created her family and cultivated her passions: from cooking to embroidery, from painting to the art of being together.

In her notebook, where she pinned her recipes, she described those flavors that took shape with “eye” doses (as she always said) and with ingredients mixed together apparently without logic.

But Gunè left nothing to chance and so, you should have seen the faces of his loved ones when one evening, fully dressed with an apron embroidered on a long dress, he brought to the table the frizzuli, the typical pasta of the Lucanian peasant tradition, seasoned with Tuscan meat sauce …

Frizzuli left everyone speechless, so much so that the whole neighborhood began to talk about this goodness and in an instant began to be contacted for the production of homemade pasta.

Gunè loved to share his knowledge because he thought collective knowledge was a revolution and so he handed down his notebook to his children and grandchildren.


Gunè is much more than a restaurant. It is a culinary journey that we want to take with you all.
