Real Roman cuisine made with
Japanese ingredients, and served in a Roman atmosphere

Striking a chord with lovers of fine food

Trattoria Dal Birbante Giocondo stands just across the road from the lush green park that surrounds the Tokyo Metropolitan Teien Art Museum.

It was opened here to "recreate the feel of a Roman trattoria" and they certainly achieved that goal.

The food is not only reminiscent of Rome, but great care is taken to ensure it is made in the traditional Roman style.

The cacio e pepe is tossed right before your eyes, sending the rich aroma of cheese into the air, and the traditional tonnarelli pasta is handmade.

For the classic italian carbonara, the restaurant uses rigatoni noodles, putting the dish in a class of its own, and the rich flavours of their guanciale must be tasted to be believed.

They cook using charcoal to truly capture the delicious flavours of every ingredient. The food here is genuine without being pretentious, allowing diners to truly experience the incredible taste of the food in front of them.

The true value of Roman food is that it is easy-going and laid-back - and that it serves as a condensed version of Italian cuisine as whole.

Each dish is dynamically presented on simple white plates. The moment your food arrives, it's like a reflex - you can't help but smile in anticipation of the flavours you are about to experience.

The food here truly arouses our most basic of instincts.

Manager Yuji Furukawa selects his ingredients very carefully from producers around the country, and Chef Yorishika Naito uses his skill to bring them together.

It is the combination of Furukawa's ingredients and Naito's skill that enables them to truly recreate the style of the Roman trattoria.

Experience the genuine Roman atmosphere as you enjoy one of the many wines imported from around Italy, here at Trattoria Dal Birbante Giocondo.

Interview

Why did you open the restaurant?
My father sells fish and my mother worked in the food industry, so I naturally fell into the restaurant business when I was around 17.

At first I worked at French restaurants and bars, then got into Italian cuisine. I never forgot the vibrancy and charm of the trattoria I went to when I visited Rome. I wanted to work in a restaurant like that, and so in 2012, I helped the owner open this one.
What do you look for in ingredients?
Of course, some of the ingredients we use are from Italy, but I order vegetables, meat and fish from producers all around Japan.

I work with them directly, and only use things I know are delicious. It's a lot of work, but we want the customers to see how delicious and how amazing such ingredients can be, and we want to support the producers, too. We feel strongly about this.

By the way, we get a direct delivery of fish from Laka Hamana every Friday, so our seafood dishes are particularly good those days.
Do you have a message for your customers?
I myself love eating delicious food. (He laughs.) That's why we try really hard to serve food that the customers will find delicious.

Basically every dish comes with a lot of food, so customers can order a few and then share. Our goal is for people to simply relax and enjoy themselves as they eat. Of course, we can also handle small parties as well, so feel free to give us a call.
