After many weeks in Tokyo, as an italian and a vegetarian, I was starting to feel somehow out of place with regards to food. Elio has turned this around, with excellent and truly italian food, coupled with friendly and professional service, which made me feel at home. All dishes are made to the italian taste and Elio's "vertical integration" (he... More

I gave this restaurant 5 stars, which is something I almost never do. Allow me to justify this below: I found the restaurant through the TripAdvisor application for Android. I happened to be in the area, and was pleasantly surprised at the price : rating ratio of a restaurant that was, in fact, only a few hundred meters from where... More

If you need a break from Japanese food while on vacation in Tokyo, this is a great spot! Service that makes you feel like family, nice menu, reasonable wines, good to excellent food! Ask for Roberto or Luciano!

18 years of successes in Japan mean that the restaurant has a solid and consolidated offer of high quality, mostly organic delicious food. Elio served us also his freshly made Hokkaido mozzarella, birra ya and ricotta, his new venture in order to keep in serving the freshest products. The beef, from Kumamoto, was also amazing. A perfect dinner

You can find Italian food pretty well wherever you go. However, it is rare to find authentic Italian food that is served with panache. The restaurant itself is small and very cosy. I was with a group of 12 but around us was a mixture of couples, business people, friends and family groups. The waiters and waitresses flowed efficiently amongst... More

It was during our last night in Tokyo, stayed in Hanzomon area and Elio place was really close. I tried to call and make a reservation, they were full and suggested later hour option. We preferred to walk around for some fresh air and try our luck instead of waiting. So it happened, we came and waited barely few minutes... More

We opted for the top shelf course menu... which was a bit over the top as we were really craving more traditional Italian, not SO gourmet (truffles, etc... was not what we had in mind for that night). Having said that; it was beautifully prepared and presented. The dishes were all very good. What set the evening apart was the... More

This was a last minute selection on our second last night in Tokyo and I spotted the raving reviews on TA so we rang up hoping for a reservation on the same night. We were lucky since it was a Saturday evening and when we turned up late after getting lost they kindly seated us in the super busy restaurants... More
