Trentanove is world-famous for its latte art and its excellent Italian cuisine
Trentanove is a warm, welcoming restaurant offering Italian cuisine and drinks in a location close to the Kamo River. But they’re the most famous for their world-renowned latte art. Their award-winning baristas make beautiful, life-like latte art appear into the crema of their coffee. They also have a varied food menu, of which their dinner set gathers the most praise from their customers. Having a nice appetizer, and then a main with a glass of red here is one of the best ways of spending a night in Kyoto that I can think of. And can also get their lattes to go, so you can also drink it by the Kamo River.

The main attraction at this restaurant is, of course, their café latte. The milk foam is poured into the espresso with such precision that in a moment you have a beautiful swan in front of your eyes! The cafe latte gets its sweetness from the milk used to make it, and the coffee is made from dark roasted beans, so it’s not at all bitter and very easy to drink. A great job by the baristas!

The dinner set starts with appetizers, baked pumpkin, bream carpaccio, prosciutto, figs, tomato and other vegetables. The main, the steak, just melts in your mouth; as expected, as it’s a very nice flat iron steak. The sauce you get with it enhances the flavor of the medium-rare steak. You also get fresh salad and bread to go with the steak, so this dinner set is sure to leave you feeling satisfied. The red we had with it was a great all-natural wine which went incredibly with the medium steak.
Today’s white wine
Trentanove has a good selection of white and red wines, and the day we went to the restaurant the day’s white was from Italy. The taste was a little bit sour, and it went together well with the appetizers. They also have wines that are not on the menu so be sure to ask the staff.
