Bulgari Il Ristorante Michelin-Starred Italian Hunt in Tokyo

tokyo michelin starred italian bulgari il ristorante review
If you are a huge fan of #Bulgari like me, you will probably wanna pop by the Bulgari Il Ristorante located in the heart of Ginza, Japan. The Bulgari Ginza Tower hosts the largest Bulgari store in the world, and the building is 10 stories high with the restaurant occupying the top four stories!

Designed by Antonio Citterio, the Tokyo Restaurant shares the rigorously elegant architectural style of the Bulgari restaurant in Milan. I was exhilarated to have the chance to step into this Michelin-Starred Italian Restaurant - Bulgari Il Ristorante.

Offering an original interpretation of traditional Italian cuisine, my dinner commenced with a bottle of the Azienda Agricola Guccione Perricone Arturo di Lanzeria 2006 from Sicily, and line-up of pretty Amuse Bouche before the actual meal kicked off.

bulgari il ristorante bollito misto verdura review
I was fascinated the moment my first course arrived at my table - Bollito Misto Verdura ( ボッリート ミスト 野菜 ). Bollito Misto is a classic northern Italian stew with meat gently simmered for couple of hours in an aromatic vegetable broth. The broth can then be used as a base for soups and risottos.

The charming Consommé Vegetable consists of colourful mini balls made up of potatoes, carrots, radish, tomatoes etc. The cameriere then poured the piping pot of broth into the plate of vegetables. Gosh, the rich and fragrant consommé was such a pretty and delectable treat bursting with flavours.

Gamberi Erbe ( 海老ハーブ ), a sweet and juicy shrimp infused with herbs that's full of aroma.

bulgari il ristorante chitarra funghi spaghetti review
Chitarra Funghi ( キタッラキノコ ) is a pasta dish typical of Abruzzo, Italy. Chitarra or Guitar, is a frame strung with music wire that is used to cut fresh pasta into strands. The tasty and velvety spaghetti, enveloped in slices of mushrooms, was exploding with the tangy creamy funghi sauce in my mouth.

tokyo bvlgari il ristorante risotto tartufo review
The original dinner menu calls for Risotto Mussels, but guests have an option to change it to Risotto Truffles with an addition of ¥8,000 (approx USD 70). The word " truffles " is enough to make me weak, and I was all for it! I was happily seated, waiting patiently as the cameriere shaved the White Truffles onto my plate of Italian rice.

Risotto Tartufo ( リゾットトリュフ ) was unbelievably flavoursome, and I cleaned the entire plate without a single grain left..........

tokyo bvlgari il ristorante kinki rapa turnip
Kinki Rapa ( キンキカブ ) is actually Turnip dish. Nothing to shout about, it tasted like some preserved turnip served in an appetizing broth.

tokyo bulgari italian restaurant manzo mozzarella review
I was already getting full by this time, but the succulent Manzo Mozzarella ( 国産牛モッツァレッラ ) was almost irresistible. Thankfully, it was just a small piece of beef, and I could joyfully savour the full flavour of the luscious mini steak.

tokyo michelin starred italian bvlgari il ristorante desserts
A refreshing sorbet pre-dessert was served before I was presented with an exquisite plating of the Castagna Cioccolato ( 栗 チョコレート ), a Chestnut Chocolate dessert. Well, the evening ended with a sweet birthday treat, another wonderful birthday celebration in Tokyo last November.

  1. You look stunning in your dress. The food here is really an art itself. How would you describe the taste of white truffles?

    1. Mun, I love truffles for their earthy and musky aroma, & the difference between white and black truffles is actually quite subtle.

  10. OOOO What a luxurious treat Shirley! I'm envious! My parents both invest and own many luxury watches but I've never been a fan and have yet to be interested myself. In terms of the dining, seriously, wow! The presentation and everything looked divined! I loved the look of that consume, how fun and colorful and so much more interesting looking than how consume normally looks! You really had such a special meal! I personally have handled black and white truffles at work before but I personally don't really like either fresh, I much prefer them in the form of oils which isn't as strong scent wise and are cheaper of course! :p

  14. What an amazing way to enjoy Italian food. The restaurant is classy and equally classy is the presentation of the dishes. Bulgari watches? I can only see but I don't think I can afford to buy.
