Luxurious lunch at a hidden Italian restaurant
Ristorante Suzumenoiori is an Italian restaurant located at this quiet Gujo-shi. It is refurbished from an old house built in 1928 along Yoshidagawa River. The decoration inside the restaurant shows the mixture of Western and Japanese culture. It was a villa of a celebrity in Gujo. All the decorations remain unchanged with many details. As the name of the restaurant “Suzume”, means sparrow, there are sparrows decorated here. Some of them are present from regular customers. Many customers come from far away and also loved by the locals.
Although it is located near to sightseeing spots like Igawa-no-komichi Lane, Yoshidagawa River and Former Hachiman Government Building, it can still keep the silence, not affected by the surrounding noise. Seeing the beautiful rock garden and listening to the sound of water stream and having Italian cuisine.
Ingredients used are natural Ayu (Sweetfish), wild game meat, Hida beef and other local fresh food from Gujo. We have chosen meat for our main dish, but the staff tells us today’s recommend is fish! We are surprised to see all fresh fish! Although Gifu-ken is a landlocked prefecture, chef of this restaurant chooses fresh fish from the fish market by himself!
We talk with sommelier Mr Tsujimoto to choose our wine to match our dishes. Service provided by the restaurant is too good that makes you forget about all the troubles in daily life.
It is a lunch course with appetizer, main dish, pasta and dessert. Dishes change according to stock today. Please dial to check before you make a reservation. Wine and other non-alcohol drinks and non-caffeinated tea are provided.
Lunch menu starts from 2900JPY (Without tax and service charge). If there is vacancy, same-day phone reservations are available. As it is an inn & restaurant, morning set (2900JPY, with tax and service charge) is provided with reservation. Starting a new day after having delicious French toast and cheese for breakfast will be nice!
