Argento ASO

This restaurant is about a 4 minute walk from Ginza-itchome station. It is classified as an Italian restaurant, but it is more of a fusion-type restaurant. The meal is presented artfully with the Japanese know-how. For example, the spaghetti with calamari came in a dish full of foam with white asparagus spears and greenery.
It offers a lunch course starting at ¥5,000; the dinner course ranges between ¥12,000- ¥20,000. The restaurant offers a beautiful ambiance with a great view. From the moment you get off the elevator, you are transported to a luxurious universe.
It is a 2★ Michelin restaurant, so it's a great place for a date or to celebrate a special occasion.

Elio Locanda Italiana

Elio Locando Italiana is located close to the Imperial palace and is a 4 minute walk from the Hanzomon station. The restaurant although in the heart of Tokyo, feels like you are stepping into a typical Italian restaurant, but the food it serves is "localized Japanese food"; Italian cuisine adapted to local ingredients. The waiters can help you pick a wine that will complement your meal perfectly. The gnocchi is delightfully soft and delicious like biting into a heavenly cloud.

Canoviano Cafe

This restaurant is in a very modern, designer Akasaka building with a beautiful view. It is close to the Hinokicho park and is about a 10-minute walk from Roppongi station. This restaurant prides itself on using local, organic restaurant hence offering Italian cuisine with a delicious Japanese flair. The presentation is exquisite and the ingredients used complement each other beautifully. The vegetables are fresh and are accompanied by a light dressing so they can speak for themselves and stand out on their own. The desserts also happen to be sublime!


Due Italian

This restaurant is an Italian take on ramen and is a 6-minute walk from Ichigaya station. Even though it's on the cheap side, it is even recommended by the Michelin Guide. You can have the cheese ramen, and ask for a bowl of rice at the end of the meal. You just pour in the rice and it turns into a cheesy risotto. Their cheese ramen is topped with fresh cheese and prosciutto. You won't be disappointed.
There's normally a long queue to get in, but once you buy your ticket from the vending machine, you get served rather quickly.
It's about ¥1000 for a bowl of ramen.

Trattoria Dal Birbante Giocondo

A 6-minute walk from Meguro station, this Rome-inspired Shirokaneidai restaurant offers Italian cuisine with a local twist. It is located near a park so you can take a stroll after dinner or lunch to help digest. The traditional tonnarelli pasta is handmade and is deliciously cheesy.



The restaurant is located in Shinagawa, close to Oimachi, Samexu, Aomono-Yokocho, and Shinagawa Seaside station. The restaurant is surprisingly affordable: a bottle of wine is between ¥2,800-¥3,800. And a main dish is ¥1,100 and up. The presentation is elegant, worthy of a luxurious restaurant.
