If you are hankering for some Italian culinary magic in Tokyo, you could do a lot worse than Appia Alta at Nishi Azabu. When our waitress pushed the bountiful appetizer cart over to our table, I resisted the temptation to order everything on display. Here is a selection of what my party of four had.
As it turned out, even the entrees and desserts were presented on carts for our consideration. The full meal—including a bottle of red wine cost no more than 20,000 yen (about US$200) a head. Very reasonable given the quantity and quality offered. And being a favourite with local Tokyo celebrities, it’s a great place to star gaze too.
