Enjoy great food and conversation at
this Italian restaurant in the back streets
of Kagurazaka, and experience homemade
flavours only found in the kitchen of a master chef.
Walk down the cobblestone back streets of Kagurazaka, and you feel as if you are walking through the ancient alleys of Montmartre in Paris. This restaurant sits in that atmospheric spot, its warm lights welcoming guests with real home-made Italian food.
It feels so comfortable, that one step in and the words "I'm home!" come almost unbidden to your lips.
Chef Kazuyuki Okamoto is very careful about ensuring he is truly close to his customers. It is a small restaurant, with only six counter seats and table sitting for another six, but this allows the chef to see his customers - to talk to them and get an understanding for their preferences - enabling him to offer only the best in cuisine and service.
Even when you can't find something on the menu, let Chef Okamoto know, and he will do his best to provide something that meets your needs.
Artigiano is the Italian word for "artisan" and Okamoto's use of that word in the restaurant's name shows his extraordinary passion for food.
Everything is hand-made, from dried tomatoes to botargo to the champagne-soaked red caviar, and he serves only the best to his customers. He is a true craftsman, constantly in pursuit of better flavour.
They offer a rich selection of pastas on the thoroughly satisfying menu, from short pastas such as tortelli and gnocchi, to broad pappardelle and thin tagliolini.
Enjoy watching your food being made live, your appetite growing with every moment as you await the creation of your own culinary masterpiece. This restaurant is a must-visit for connoisseurs.
