Argento ASO

This restaurant is about a 4 minute walk from Ginza-itchome station. It is classified as an Italian restaurant, but it is more of a fusion-type restaurant. The meal is presented artfully with the Japanese know-how. For example, the spaghetti with calamari came in a dish full of foam with white asparagus spears and greenery.
It offers a lunch course starting at ¥5,000; the dinner course ranges between ¥12,000- ¥20,000. The restaurant offers a beautiful ambiance with a great view. From the moment you get off the elevator, you are transported to a luxurious universe.
It is a 2★ Michelin restaurant, so it's a great place for a date or to celebrate a special occasion.

Elio Locanda Italiana

Elio Locando Italiana is located close to the Imperial palace and is a 4 minute walk from the Hanzomon station. The restaurant although in the heart of Tokyo, feels like you are stepping into a typical Italian restaurant, but the food it serves is "localized Japanese food"; Italian cuisine adapted to local ingredients. The waiters can help you pick a wine that will complement your meal perfectly. The gnocchi is delightfully soft and delicious like biting into a heavenly cloud.

Canoviano Cafe

This restaurant is in a very modern, designer Akasaka building with a beautiful view. It is close to the Hinokicho park and is about a 10-minute walk from Roppongi station. This restaurant prides itself on using local, organic restaurant hence offering Italian cuisine with a delicious Japanese flair. The presentation is exquisite and the ingredients used complement each other beautifully. The vegetables are fresh and are accompanied by a light dressing so they can speak for themselves and stand out on their own. The desserts also happen to be sublime!

Dinner:¥10,000~¥14,999

Due Italian

This restaurant is an Italian take on ramen and is a 6-minute walk from Ichigaya station. Even though it's on the cheap side, it is even recommended by the Michelin Guide. You can have the cheese ramen, and ask for a bowl of rice at the end of the meal. You just pour in the rice and it turns into a cheesy risotto. Their cheese ramen is topped with fresh cheese and prosciutto. You won't be disappointed.
There's normally a long queue to get in, but once you buy your ticket from the vending machine, you get served rather quickly.
It's about ¥1000 for a bowl of ramen.

Trattoria Dal Birbante Giocondo

A 6-minute walk from Meguro station, this Rome-inspired Shirokaneidai restaurant offers Italian cuisine with a local twist. It is located near a park so you can take a stroll after dinner or lunch to help digest. The traditional tonnarelli pasta is handmade and is deliciously cheesy.
