1-star Italian restaurant in Ogaki, Gifu prefecture, with local cuisine and fresh ideas

A 7-minute walk from JR Ogaki Station in Ogaki City, Gifu Prefecture, 1-star Italian restaurant “CUCINA” is located quietly on the 1st floor of the building. Chef Terumichi Tanaka who was born and raised in Gifu, will show his skills.

Chef Tanaka entered a cooking school officially recognized by the Italian state of Piedmont to pursue his culinary career. After graduation, he began training at “Paulo e Barbara” in Sanremo, Italy, and then studied under Mr. Massimiliano Alajmo, chef of 3-star ristorante “Le Calandre” in Venice. After returning to Japan, he opened his own restaurant “CUCINA” in 2007. In 2008, he created a new style of "大垣リトルイタリアン" (Ogaki Little Italian) with the designer Yasumichi Morita, who is active both in Japan and overseas. In 2014, he entered the wedding market and worked as a grand chef at “THE GRAND TIARA GUEST HOUSE MONTRESOR” in Ogaki. In 2019, “CUCINA” became a popular 1-star restaurant.

At “CUCINA”, there is a casual a la carte menu arranged with local dishes, and an innovative Italian course where you can enjoy the unique combination of ingredients, that can make you laugh by stimulating your sixth sense. For example, "Roasted duck" is a surprising combination of French duck marinated in miso from Gifu's Gujo and Takayama city, adding a local flavor. "Orange and strawberry gelato" surprises the senses of sight and taste with its contrasting concept of orange-colored strawberries and red-colored oranges. In addition, there is a playful spirit in the arrangement of the presentation, as sea urchin dishes are served in a glass bowl shaped like a sea urchin shell, and egg dishes are served in a bowl shaped like an egg shell. There is various wine available from natural to vintage, with a wide range of drinks from classic to original drinks, such as smoked and spicy mixed cocktails.

“CUCINA” is located at a three-story structure with a casual counter Italian restaurant on the 1st floor, an elegant ristorante on the 2nd floor and a bar lounge on the 3rd floor. The interior was designed by designer Yasumichi Morita. The theme and atmosphere are different on each floor. You can enjoy various gastronomic experiences in various occasions, from private situations such as dining with family and friends or dating, to business situations such as welcoming overseas guests.
