Notice :The restaurant was closed down because the cook passed away. I really loved his dishes, so I was at a loss. (3rd, September, 2015)
Cozy Italian foods restaurant being a little far from the center of Ginza
I was lucky to go to the Italian restaurant that I had wanted to go there for a long time.
The restaurant’s name is Yamagishi Shokudou.
That is a very small restaurant. And we had dinner in a dimly light.
At first, I hesitated to enter the restaurant because I thought it isn’t open.
But it have a very good reputation.
It was poor light, so I couldn’t take those pictures well 😛
First of all, we ordered some appetizers.
Crepe rolls with uncured ham (生ハムのクレープ巻き) 1200 yen
It was awesome. It looks easy to cook. I’ll try someday !
Smoked salmon canape (スモークサーモンのカナッペ) 1200 yen
It looks like sushi 😛
Tomato and mozzarella (トマトとモッツァレラ) 1200 yen
It is a standard taste of Italian !
Jidori chicken liver flavored balsamic sauce (地鶏レバーのバルサミコ風味) 1300 yen
The sourness of balsamic sauce added the chicken liver more refreshing taste.
Today’s meat dish (本日のお肉料理) from 1500 yen
I didn’t remember the meat. But I remember that those mushrooms were tasty 😛
Then we ordered some spaghetti.
The chef make his own pasta at the restaurant.
Gorgonzola and zucchini (ゴルゴンゾーラとズッキーニ) 1500 yen
The baguette were on the dish. Well, we could manage the rich sauce with the baguette.
White wine flavored Jidori chickens (地鶏の白ワイン風味) 1400 yen
It was a simple taste, so, I could find the taste of pasta very well. Springy, springy.
Uncured ham and zucchini, salted (生ハムとズッキーニ塩味) 1300 yen
Judging from the amounts of pasta, the amount of uncured ham was much.
Tomato, basil and mozzarella (トマトとバジリコとモッツァレラ) 1300 yen
I wanted baguette for the sauce, too.
Tomato cream sauce with shrimp (小エビのトマトクリームソース) 1300 yen
It had rich taste tomato cream sauce. I like tomato cream sauce best in all kinds of spaghetti sauce.
After that we had dessert and cappuccino.
Panna cotta (パンナコッタ) 500 yen
Cappuccino (カップチーノ) 500 yen
And it was good cappuccino.
If I drink bad cappuccino at Italian restaurant, I am extremely disappointed. It is in vain. On the contrary, drinking good cappuccino make me feel really happy. So I was very glad by the cappuccino.
This restaurant use plenty of cheese for almost all dishes. Cheeseholic like me will get engrossed in the restaurant.
But the trouble is that it is so hard to reserve the restaurant.
I took the reservation at that time, the reservation is already full until this December.
The chef said “You can reserve only December 17 or 18 this year.” A half year later !
But only one chef cook and serve at the restaurant, so he can’t accept much people.
That day, only 3 groups were at the restaurant.
