Fodor's Review

Acclaimed executive chef and owner Okuda Masayuki prepares Italian dishes that are totally original and unique. His style of Italian comes with a commitment to the freshest ingredients, including the produce, fish, and meat. The menu varies, but everything is reliably great. The aim here is to bring out all natural flavors and aromas of Shonai foods by using few condiments, to create a perfectly combined dish where delicate flavors are more important than heavy sauces

or big portions. In winter, try risotto with turnips, truffles, and cod milt (sperm). A well-chosen wine list includes Italian and Japanese varietals. It's 20 minutes by taxi or bus from JR Tsuruoka Station.
