We where lucky and somebody cancelled so we enjoyed lunch in osteria francesana which was really one very good experience. If you want to see and taste food in a unique way, visit it. Expensive but worth every single euro.

My family and I went there in the summer while we were visiting Italy, Needless to say, it was the best food I've ever had before. I had the Lobster and it was amazing. The service was also amazing!
