We ate here the evening before the Tokyo marathon and the home made pasta was delicious. Our waiter Roberto treated us like VIPs, and his food and wine recommendations were outstanding. The atmosphere in the restuarant is lively which added to the authentic atmosphere. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who is looking for great Italian food in Tokyo.

This is a great place to get some Italian food while in Tokyo. We were the only tourists on site that evening since the place was packed with locals, which we took to be a good sign! They have lots of menu offerings (both food and wine), and everything was tasty and cooked perfectly. Desert could have been better, but... More

Stepping into Elio Laconda is like stepping into Italy! Busy, noisy, full of happy people enjoying great food. And its like that very night and even at lunch time. This is not a tourist destination, nearly all the clientele are local residents...most of them Japanese. But unlike other Italian places in Tokyo, Elio has not comprised at all in serving... More

Went there with colleagues. We only had 1 hour and they managed to serve us 3 courses in that time. The food is really good and the service very friendly. Also got free prosecco (but this I think is due to my colleagues being regular clients).

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!
