I have been here at least 10 times now, it only gets better. The menu is constantly changing, the seasonal items are fantastic. Considering the quality of the meat, cheese and home made desserts Stefano's food is excellent value. Lunch menus start at $12, dinner is $40-100 which is very reasonable for fine dining. I would eat here every day... More

I decided to try this restaurant after seeing rave reviews on Trip Advisor. Once again, it lead me astray. I had to visit the location three times during their advertised business hours before I found a day they were actually open. There was no signage to indicate they would be closed those days. I ordered the 9 course meal. Two... More

Although a bit hard to find, this spectacular cozy little restaurant located not far from Kagurazaka subway station is well worth searching out. Our first visit in early March had been memorable for outstanding food and friendly service and we were even more impressed the second time. We went in late April just as Chef Stefano was switching his seasonal... More

Back in Tokyo for the weekend, I decided to revisit the fantastic Italian in Kagurazaka, that I last ate at two years ago, to see if Chef Stefano could repeat the superb job he had done last time. Yet again the Veneto style Italian food was sublime, Stefano as Chef/host is unbeatable in terms of both the quality of the... More

Outstanding little restaurant. We got there a little early for dinner, and received very nice personal attention from Stefano; however, I noticed those who came later also received the same service. Upon deciding upon the dinner, Stefano recommended a nice selection (and explanation) of possible wines to match our dinner choices-all the wines were within a very reasonable price limit.... More

Best Italian in Tokyo. Food, service, atmosphere are all great. This is not your usual bland, impersonal restaurant: Stefano personally takes care of guests. Only the best ingredients are used, and everything is made by hand. Last but not least, it's not at all expensive. Highly recommended.

This tiny restaurant gets everything right. The ice cream, pasta and seafood are very fresh and I love the desserts which are hard to find elsewhere in Tokyo.

Delicious, authentic, home cooked Italian food. Everything is made fresh and with care and clearly Stefano cares a lot on what he puts on a plate. I particularly enjoyed the rabbit tagliatelle and the scallops tartare. Highly recommended, enjoy a long, boozy, tasty lunch there.

Ristorante Stefano is a hidden gem in a city that boasts an extradinary number of Italian restaurants and eateries of good to excellent quality. What you will find at Ristorante Stefano you will find nowhere else: home-style Venetian cooking by a chef who is at the top of his game. Every last morsel of food, from the bread basket items...
