カンパーニャ産水牛のモッツアレラチーズとフルーツトマトのカプレーゼ風サラダ、フリウリ産ハム添え。
岩手県産黒毛和牛のラグーソースと京壬生菜のスパゲッティーニ。
Mozzarella cheese, fruit tomato and ham salad. The appetizer for the lunch course was octopus originally but the waitor asked if there is anything we don't like, so I requested a different appetizer instead of octopus - which I don't fancy. This is very nice. The tomato is very sweet.
Beef ragu sauce spaghetti. It is a bit overcooked....a bit unbelievable for a high-class Italian to not achieve al dente...and I craved Italian and it just tasted too Japanese.

沼津港直送鮮魚(金目鯛)のポワレ、魚介のスープ仕立て。
シャラン産鴨胸肉のロースト、パルサミコのソース。
Pan-fried Alfonsino(found in dictionary...) in seafood soup. The fish and the yam underneath it are both very good. Though it is again very very Japanese...
Roasted duck, in Balsamico sauce. The duck is a bit hard...

Chocolate ice-cream and Mascarpone cheese with raisins. Chocolate was grated in front of me by the waitor - a bit messy. ^^;; But it tasted wonderful. My friend's dessert was pineapple and ginger ice-cream.

Comments:

Japanese as in very mild and light, the veggy and the soup-like sauce made the pasta very Japanese, while the fish was entirely a Japanese dish except the look. Yeah, maybe I was expecting something richer, more cheese, more olive oil, more tomato, better al dente...^^;;; You know there are many many cheap cafes/restaurants here serving Japanese-style pasta, in some places you actually use chopsticks, so wafu pasta is nothing novel and it has a cheap-eat image...so when I go to an expensive Italian, I expect some authentic Italian lor.
