First, the positive: the garden view and place are really nice. Now, the negative: - uninspired and pricey food (said otherwise, classic Italian fare at a 'deluxe' price - very bad value) - average service (forgot to give us back gloves, had to come pick them a few days later, quite unusual in Japan where customer is 'god' and such...

Least impressive food , Restaurante Aso is simply put a tourist trap that Michelin guide fell for , the garden & the cafe was serene and lovely , yet their fine dine section was horrid , the pasta was wobbly , and presented in an unparalleled proportion , looks amateur at best , something that resembles any instant noodles from...

I came here for my birthday and this restaurant met my expectations. The service was impeccable, fast and friendly. While a little on the pricey side, definitely worth it for that special occasion.

You step in to another world once inside this converted house situated in the extremely fashionable Daikanyama district. We were taken by friends who frequent the place regularly, given its unusual openness to being dog friendly. We sat through a tantalizing 5 course supper starting with a cold, tomato based fish soup. Next up was Pasta with pungent Matsutake mushroom... More

I went to this restaurant knowing it would be highly sophisticated and probably not really Italian based on the menu selection. I was right. This is not the restaurant you go to for authentic Italian but the restaurant you go to for authentic! Every dish was visually appealing and a dance on your tastebuds. Being from California we were at... More

I visited for lunch with a friend. Aso, with 2 Michelin stars, is perhaps tokyo's finest Italian restaurant. Tatsuji Aso brings touches of Japanese artistic flair to some excellent Italian dishes. Walking through the brasserie/cafe at the front, which was very popular on a Tuesday lunchtime, the restaurant is located at the rear. We were presented with some three menu... More

This restaurant has great food and the presentation is absolutely fabulous!! The prix fixe menu for lunch is more than reasonable which I highly suggest. It's unfortunate they don't accept reservations during the weekend, because they are booked with weddings, but if you have the chance on a weekday, GO!! Service is impeccable and food is really really good!! They... More

I heard quite bit about this restaurant on foodie forums and decided to give it a try. It's a 2 star michelin restaurant with prices to match, so we went for a 3 course meal from their lunch menu ( around 5000 yen much better value than dinner). The service was excellent and the food was very well presented -... More

Neighborhood Profile
Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu
There are countless opportunities to shop in the Shibuya and Harajuku districts, especially in shops that focus on Japan's "Kawaii" culture. The trendiest areas are around Shibuya’s Center district, Harajuku's Takeshita-dori and in Omotesando. If you need to recharge from all the shopping, you can easily refresh yourself in Meiji Jingu or Sasaki Park. In contrast, Ebisu has a more grown up ambiance of calm and cool. At the Museum of Yebisu Beer you can learn about the beer that was responsible for the town’s name, and enjoy dining at the popular noodle shops in the surrounding area.
