La Luna Rossa






This is one Italian restaurant to consider if you are planning to have a lunch or dinner with lovely views of the blooming sakura trees.

During Sakura season, this tiny restaurant in the Megurogawa area only serves two set menus. The first menu is a two course set menu that costs around 3000 yen and includes a very lovely and fresh orange salmon for appetizer, a very hearty and delicious pasta with meat sauce for main dish, dessert of the day and coffee/tea.


   The orange salmon appetizers

For 5000 yen you get a three course menu with all of the above and a roasted duck for main course. They did not have an english menu but the waiters did manage to somewhat explain to us what was in the menu. He started to flap his hands when he came to the roasted duck part, I thought we were going to get a pigeon.


 The meat pasta

Anyway, we did have a lovely lunch with a wonderful view of the cherry blossom trees framed outside their windows. Lunch was quick, service was pleasant and food was good. From all the dishes we tried yesterday the pasta with meat sauce was the best and I will definitely go back again to try whatever other options they have on their menu.
