After attending law school, Massimo Bottura opened Osteria Francescana in 1995.
In 2016, it was rated as the world's best restaurant in the World's 50 Best Restaurants. It was the first Italian restaurant to earn the award. It was also second best in 2015 and third best in 2013 and 2014. The first two positions in 2014 were won by Noma and El Celler de Can Roca respectively.
Katherine LaGrave, writing in Condé Nast Traveler, praised Osteria Francescana's "lack of pretense" and said its classics remained a surprise, despite the media attention. Tanya Gold, writing in The Guardian in 2016, said "some of it is delicious" but not her "kind of food." Richard Vines, writing in Bloomberg Businessweek in 2014, said lunch was "three hours of pleasure."
