Forget the hustle and bustle of Roppongi, enjoy an Italian cuisine in a restaurant with calm interior.
L’ombra is an Italian restaurant which opened in September 2017. It is conveniently located only a minute walk from Roppongi Station. The word L’ombra in Italian means the shade of a tree or a glass of wine. The owner, who has a deep knowledge of Italian culture, wants to give customers the chance to easily enjoy wine and Italian cuisine in a calm setting, and forget about the hustle and bustle of Roppongi.
Chef Takeshi Kamiji has worked for restaurants in Toscana, Italy, Aroma Fresca in Ginza, and Incanto in Hiroo. With the abundant experiences, he offers a wide variety of dishes, and is especially skilled at Italian local cuisine, such as hand-made pasta. He is also known for cooking meat, and has created a certain allure by incorporating with customer's requests and Japanese ingredients into the menu. The wine is mainly sourced from Tuscany and Piedmont in Italy. There are several varieties of wine available, from 1400 yen sparkling wine, to a glass of wine for around 1200-1600 yen. Customers can choose their favorite wines depending on the meal and their mood.
Inspired by the meaning of the restaurant’s name, L'ombra, the restaurant's interior is based on the color gray. The bright grey counter and grey walls create shadows everywhere, and the interior let customers relax with the feeling of being under the shade of a tree. There are 10 counter seats and a private room with table that seats up to 6 people. Customers can enjoy themselves at the counter, or you can talk to friends and colleagues in a private room. We recommend this restaurant for those who wish to casually enjoy Italian cuisine in Roppongi.
