This more casual offshoot of Otto Ristorante is still traditional, serving dishes like the assorted seafood cacciucco (soup of fish and assorted fresh seafood). Expect well-executed, authentic and hearty plates from head chef Fabiano Davide, former personal chef to the Ambassador of Italy in Tokyo.
The food was reasonable but not exceptional - the chef has potential but is not there yet. The service was terrible. My main arrived lukewarm, the pepper grinder arrived just before we were finished the mains, having been requested with the starters. Difficulty getting the bill etc. And they really are taking advantage on the prices. They charged us $14 for the bread - which is normally free - and in any case is a bit steep for 5 baguette slices and some olive oil, plus a 10% service charge for lousy service. All up $300 for two including 1 cheap bottle of wine. Wont be back
