A place for everyone.

Il Vezzo was born in 2013 with the aim of creating something new, something different from what the already ‘crowded’ Centre of Florence offered.
Today, after almost 10 years and a succession of novelties and changes, we are following the path we ‘dreamed’ of from the very beginning, with our mix of study, a lot of hard work, a lot of passion and a pinch of recklessness.

Marco

After his scientific studies, he decided to follow his passion for cooking.
Thanks to Gualtiero Marchesi’s academy, he began to try his hand in the working world, gaining experience at ‘Ora d’aria’ in Florence, and then leaving for Piedmont, London and Marbella. He then decided to settle back in his home town, opening the restaurant ‘Il Vezzo’ where he embarked on a path of growth based on product research and tradition, the fruit of his own experience gained over time.

Giovanni

Florentine DOC, Sommelier, with an innate passion for research and a strong attachment to the territory. “With the aim of raising awareness among our customers and supporting the growth of every small reality in the area, I have tried to create a ‘made in Tuscany’ wine list with almost 100 labels, ranging from classic traditional wines to the most unusual and revolutionary natural wines.”
