Open only a few weeks, Osteria Beverino is the latest eatery to try its luck on the perilous stretch of Meiji Dori between Ebisu and Higashi.
The space is pleasant enough, although at this time of year the vaulted ceiling doesn’t make for a cozy atmosphere.
Lunch sets at ¥1,000 a pop were the order of the day.
A pile of truly dull salad, and a coffee included, the mains were sizable, too. The Pasta del Giorno, essentially mushroom and tuna spaghetti, was immediately offered in its super-sized format.
My dining partner’s lasagna received no complaints. If anything were lacking, it was soup.
As far as weekday lunches go, this Italian restaurant is worth a visit while it’s still in business.
