Antonino LentiniAmbassador of the authentic traditional Sicilian CuisineIn 2007, Nino was recognized for his achievements in Japan by the Mayor of Mazara del Vallo and was awarded with a commemorative plate, as "Ambasciatore della vera Cucina tradizionale Siciliana" (Ambassador of Authentic Traditional Sicilian Cuisine.) Born on the island of Sicily in the town of Trapani, Antonino Lentini had an interest in cooking from a young age. Gifted with both passion and natural ability, he began working at local restaurants from the age of 14. After mastering local cuisine, he then expanded his skills while working at shops specializing in a variety of things like desserts, breads, and gelato. He further polished his skills at famous hotels throughout Europe and Italy. He later came to Japan after being invited to an Italian fair, and from there became determined to contribute to the spread of Sicilian cuisine.The abundant and wonderful sun of Sicily that nourishes wheat, oranges, figs, capers, and olives, along with the land, people, and history of Sicily, have had a large impact in giving people all over the world a rich sense of taste. Nino (Antonino) became known for his skills while working in Ginza, however, his genius extended beyond this, where through the successful management of several restaurants he came to be known as an ambassador of Sicilian cuisine.In April of 2006, Nino made the most of his vast experience and opened Ristorante da Nino, a restaurant where nothing but the finest ingredients are used in making authentic Sicilian cuisine under Nino's watchful eye. In a colorful and beautiful Sicilian atmosphere, you can choose from over 200 varieties of Sicilian wine, including those which are exceedingly rare in Japan.More recently, Ristorante da Nino has garnered much attention for the way in which it is revolutionizing traditional Sicilian cuisine by aiming to shine a new kind of light on it.

I had to come 7000 miles to tokyo to experience over the top italiano food?!

Just a beautiful atmosphere run by incredibly polite, courteous and friendly staff and Nino cooking away in front of us the whole evening... typical 3 hour + meal in italy, but surprising the extensive italian wine selection (and some high end french).

I live in Asia and everytime I stop by Tokyo I go for dinner at "da Nino". Simply the best! Fish and pasta, excellent wine, superb dessert and don't forget to ask the pistacchio ice cream!

We had a wonderful dinner at da Nino's. Our hotel concierge suggested it after we requested a cozy Italian restaurant with great food and service. She hit the mark with this suggestion. The entire team was friendly and hospitable. Food was excellent. We ate too much of the homemade bread - which was fantastic!! I really loved the decor, which... More

If you enjoy italian cuisine, this is a must! a bit tricky to find once you leave the subway, but we asked a passerby on the street who know the restaurant and Nino well. A local favourite. Regulars who came in didn't even glance at the menu. How delightful in a city of 35+ million to have this kind of... More

This place gets the basics right. Excellent ingredients, simply cooked and well presented. The tuna carpaccio appetizer was delicious, served with slices of orange, and so was my entree - two types of pasta: spaghetti in a simple tomato, basil and peppercorn sauce, and another pasta with pesto. Beautifully cooked with real flavor. No dessert or coffee on this occasion,... More

There are many Italian restaurants in Tokyo. For example, Delizioso in Ebisu is a quite good little "trattoria". But thanks to a friend who is a high Japanese government official who had this restaurant recommended to him by people in the Italian Embassy, we discovered Da Nino. After eating here twice within a 2 week period, my wife and I... More
