La Locanda - The Ritz-Carlton, Kyoto

Authentic Italian Cuisine Offered by VALENTINO PALMISANO
La Locanda's Italian Chef de Cuisine, Valentino Palmisano from Napoli, offers authentic Italian cuisine in the relaxing and stylish restaurant. What is amazing is that Chef Valentino uses carefully selected ingredients imported from Italy and various lunch and dinner courses certainly make you feel satisfied both by its fine and authentic taste and by the hospitality. If you would prefer a private room, three types of rooms are available (please refer to “Note” for more information). Various and unique dining events are held in La Locanda, so please also check them out!
Tomato pasta
Tomato pasta
This is one of the signature dishes at La Locanda. When you imagine “tomato pasta”, it may be entirely red. However, it is interesting that this Neapolitan tomato pasta is without a red color in order, which follows the authentic Italian cooking method. Ingredients are all imported from Italy, even the fruit tomatoes on top of the pasta. The fresh basil and fragrant garlic flavors perfectly match with Gragnano pasta and parmesan cheese. This is simply the best pasta I’ve ever tasted in my life!
To find the best low fat meat in Japan that meets the chef’s expectation, it took about a year to discover it. The beef is nicely grilled and the smoked cheese gives more aromas. What is interesting is that the beef tendon is used in this dish and it melts in your mouth, leaving the refreshing, rich beef flavor. Also, enjoy the crunchy texture of chicory.

This is also my favorite dish- artichoke with two kinds of tunas in potato sauce with coffee powders. When you first taste it, you may find the fresh aroma of Burrata cheese, nicely cooked artichoke and different flavors of two kinds of tunas spreading in your mouth. The coffee powder gives a refreshing taste as well.

Infiniment Citron by PIERRE HERMÉ PARIS
Not only La Locanda, but all the restaurants in this resort offer desserts created by PIERRE HERMÉ PARIS. This is “Infiniment Citron” with lemon cream, lemon pulp, candied lemon and light lemon cream that form the rich and fresh aromas. You will discover these different tastes with every bite.
