Nice tranquil Italian restaurant with the pasta al dente and the salads and panna cotta very much to our liking. Not inexpensive but fairy priced for the quality we received. A nice find. We would return.

In Tokyo for three days we wanted something different and this was it. A lovely Italian restaurant that has a great limited menu and very good wine list. We came out for six for about 45000yen for two courses and quite a few drinks.

We're Australians visiting Tokyo and just love Italian food, we found this restaurant on trip advisor and it was amazing! The staff were very helpful even though we don't speak a word of Japanese haha. Their English isn't very good but we got through it - the food was authentic Italian and just delicious. Will be going back multiple times... More

Was staying nearby and decided to check this place out. After looking at menu we realized prices were more than previous reviewers had reported. Meals about 4-5000¥/head.

I actually discovered this restaurent on Trip Advisor. My husband and I were getting a bit tired of Japanese food after two weeks and felt like Italian, and there are a lot in Japan! Ristorante Giardino was only a couple of blocks from our hotel in Asakusa, so we decided to try it. It is located down a dark narrow... More

My Japanese wife and I have visited Italy countless times, and she is a serious gourmet. We both agree that this restaurant's Italian fare is on a par with the very best that we have eaten anywhere, Italy included. Since our first visit in November of 2013, my wife has gone back with people who live in Tokyo, and they... More

If you're in Asakusa and feel like having some delicious Italian food, head to the Giardino restaurant. This restaurant is co-owned with a Japanese restaurant owner who has another restaurant in Rome, Italy and has lived there over 30 years. The food is delicious, the cook is Japanese but has been trained in Italy and also worked there for many... More

Staying in Ueno, Asakusa

Neighbourhood Profile
Ueno, Asakusa
Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old Tokyo) era remain vividly in Ueno and Asakusa. Spacious Ueno Park is a great place to relax and visit a variety of different museums and galleries. At Ameyoko which starts in front of Ueno station, the grocery stores and clothing shops are crammed alongside fishmongers. It gets particularly busy at the end of the year, when many people go on shopping sprees. The town of Asakusa, developed around Sensoji temple, has many shops selling goods and clothing from old Japan, making it a great place for souvenir hunting. It's also known for various annual festivals, and the whole district gets involved with the huge Sanja Festival in May.
