Honestly, I am not one for Italian cuisine but after a friend recommended la cucina Vivace, I have changed my stance. For lunch, apart from à la carte, you have a choice of three set menus ranging from ¥1800, ¥2500 & ¥3600. The chef is adept at dishing out authentic fare. The antipasto of cured pork & carpaccio of turbot was an excellent appetizer. Followed by the Lasagne & Spaghetti with sea urchin which were simply divine & not to forget the mackerel & steak which were cooked to perfection.
