There is a tiny Italian restaurant, Trattoria Savani, that is located directly under the tracks of our train line.
It had been several years since the last time we ate here (pre-blog), but on a weekday last month, while we were walking to another restaurant, the wind was whipping and icy, so Satoshi and I decided to pop in.
The interior was quite dark. The last time we were here was for dinner, so I couldn't remember what the interior was like then.
Satoshi and I both ordered the pasta lunch 1050 yen (about US$10.50) with dessert plus 550 yen (about US$5.50)
The lunch started with a plate of antipasti and soup. The soup really hit the spot and everything was delicious, though I would have liked to have more warm items.
Satoshi chose the hotaru ika (firefly squid) in a garlic sauce.
I chose the spring potatoes and peas in a tomato sauce.
The dessert plate was impressive. A cup of melon juice with some melon pieces inside. An apple tart, blanc mange, custard, and tiramisu, which had a nice swoosh of chocolate syrup.
It was nice to reconnect with this place.
Closed on Tuesdays
(UPDATE: as of Feb 2010, this restaurant is closed, though they do have another small restaurant right across the street).
