In Sanjo City, Niigata Prefecture, you’ll find a Michelin-starred restaurant, Il Riposo, serving a style of Italian cuisine that is totally unique. Located in a residential area, Il Riposo was awarded one Michelin star in MICHELIN GUIDE NIIGATA 2020.
The owner, Chef Makoto Harada, was trained at the famous Italian restaurant "Al Porto" in Tokyo before returning to his hometown in Niigata and opening the restaurant in 2010. The name of the restaurant, which means "rest" in Italian, was inspired by his grandfather.
Ci facciamo due spaghil—pasta with mushrooms grown in Niigata Prefecture and white truffles from Alba—is recommended. The aroma of various locally-grown mushrooms rises with the intoxicating scent of white truffles, enveloping the senses. If you close your eyes, this dish will make you feel as if you are deep in the mountains of Niigata.
Visit Il Riposo to try Michelin-starred Italian cuisine that features local ingredients.
