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 concluded it may very well be the best Italian restaurant in Tokyo. It's small, on a side street off Gaienhigashi-doori in Nogizaka. just a short walk up from the great "Midtown" shopping complex in Roppongi. The food is superb, Sicilian style and the chef is Sicilian. The Bufala mozzarella was the freshest, sweetest and best I've ever tasted; the pasta unusual and wonderful. To keep costs down, as anyone who knows Tokyo is aware, you go at lunch for your big meal and have the 3 course fixed price menu (around 3-3500 Yen or $35-40 apiece). Going at dinner will cost you at least double. It's a small restaurant so make reservations if you can. It was always filled at lunchtime both times we went.
