お魚料理: 真鯛のオレンジソテー。
デザート: ズッパイングレーゼ。
Fish: Red sea bream saute with orange. Rather bland...
Dessert: Zuppa Inglese.
Special lunch course is 3800yen. A glass of champagne and mineral water, came up to 5200yen. The Japanese waitress is friendly and helpful, even split the bill for each of us without our asking(some of us ordered different courses). The Italian manager however is a bit of a snob. The decor is cute but quite cramp inside. A bit overpriced given the quality. I guess someone has to pay for the posh location.

そうだったの?!!!
味はないけど「ただの蛋白質」として食っとけ!
という意味だと思って笑った、、、^^;;;;;;;

「たんぱく」って多分こっちの「淡泊」
栄養素のじゃなくて、濃い薄いのたんぱく~^^;
今になって、私が淡泊って言った時のシーさんの小さな反応の理由が分かったよ!!

Merry Christmas!
Sicilian food is mostly Italian food but uses more seafood I guess? ^^;; Good review here. So orange sauce is a Sicilian specialty....

パスタ、やっぱり見た目も普通だ!

Merry Christmas~~
Cute plates! XD I never tried a Sicilian restaurant before, like Arancini is a siciliian's specialty. The Pasta and fish looks like they could be Italian, maybe some difference in cooking ingredients~

Merry Christmas~
I have been enjoying eating out with friends in the name of Christmas. ^^;;
Yeah, stingy on the ingredients and not much taste too. This place is pretty famous and popular, wonder why. Maybe dinner is better.

Hey Hey merry xmas~~
hope you're enjoying the holidays so far! (and can't wait to see your amazing christmas dinner)

Those small bowls are so cute! Seems quite stingy on the clams though. The appetizer looks great but the entree does look bland (kinda American-ish?)! 5200 yen is a bit pricey.
