Lunch at Sabatini di Firenze Tokyo, the Best and Oldest Italian Restaurant in Tokyo

At Sabatini di Firenze Tokyo, a venerable old Italian restaurant in Japan's capital, I recently enjoyed their "Winter Afternoon Lunch". It's only available during this season.

The Exterior and Interior of the Restaurant

The restaurant is located on the third floor of the Hulic Square Building. By the way, there are shops and restaurants from the basement to third floors, but from the 4th floor, it's a hotel that is part of the Hulic Group.

Three types of bread were offered: grissini, focaccia, and baguette.

Usually, diners can select desserts from a cart, but this time, two of them were chosen by the chef.

We received so many dishes, one by one, that the price turned out to be a very good deal. This course is also offered on weekends, but weekdays are recommended because it's easier to make reservations then.
