Ostü – 代々木公園のイタリアン


This place was previously an Italian restaurant called Il Ruscello where the young staff had a good effort of service and I used to love visiting. They decided to move to somewhere else and came another good Italian according to my friend in this neighborhood. Ostu is said specialized in northern Italian, and the staff looked relatively shy.
We sat by a large window as this open atmosphere looked comfortable. The long seats by the wall further inside remained the same as before.
I ordered the course menu that had my favorite whitebait, octopus ocellatus, oysters pasta and so on, but wonder if it was really Piemonte cuisine? Vino bianco from San Gimigniano was amusing.
The picture above is from inside to out through the window that reflects the kitchen in my back.
