From the moment that Luciano, our waiter from Calabria, greeted us in fluent English and in Italian, the evening was wonderful. We quickly decided on the Chef's Selection and allowed Luciano to select a wine for us - that perfectly complimented the dinner to come....More

Our waiter, Luciano, made our evening special. The food was spot-on from start to finish. Lovingly, expertly prepared. The pesce del giorno (Sea Bass with a green olive topping) was worthy of Tsujiki. But the mark of a great restaurant is that EVERYTHING was prepared...More

It's like being in a family run restaurant somewhere in Italy. Everything is authentic and unpretentious; the food is great, the atmosphere and friendly service is perfect and the tiramisu is incredible.

Yotsuya / Iidabashi
Yotsuya and Iidabashi are areas that developed around
the outer moat of the Imperial palace. Nearby in
Kagurazaka, there is an old red-light district with a
photogenic feel evocative of the ambiance of old
Tokyo. Narrow paths with stone paving remain to this
day, and there are long-standing restaurants with
geishas and quaint old cafes in townhouse buildings.
