Casual dining in Ginza, the place where it all has begun, that seeks the essence of Italian cuisine, and sets a standard for delicious food.
In April 2016, it was the 10th anniversary of HUGE's flagship restaurant, “RESTAURANT DAZZLE". On this occasion, we took the opportunity to have another look at a standard of food in the restaurant industry, and based on that concept, “cucina del Nabucco" was born. "Nabucco" is the title of an opera that brought fame to the Italian composer, Giuseppe Verdi, who would later go on to write "Rigoletto". Based on that connection, menu served at cucina del Nabucco is the same modern Italian cuisine at RESTAURANT DAZZLE, and is seeking to get to the very essence of Italian, which is also the origin of Spanish-Italian founded at “RIGOLETTO". The restaurant is particularly discerning about cheese and tomatoes. Fresh cheese are made at a cheese making station inside of the open kitchen, and only the best tomatoes are sourced from around the country. The casual dining restaurant also acts as a chapel on weekends, celebrating the happiness of newly-wed couples, and becoming a memorable starting point that they'll want to return to.
Trattoria with simple and fine Italian cuisine for any occasion.
Located on the 7th floor of MIKIMOTO Ginza 2, directly below “Restaurant Dazzle", “cucina del NABUCCO" is a space decorated in white tones that has a cozy and casual atmosphere. The design of the restaurant is symmetrical either side of the entrance, so that it can also be used as a chapel. The interior that all tables have a view of the open kitchen, allows diners to see the cooking performance. The impressively simple white tone shows the meaning of our concept, reevaluate the starting point and standards of HUGE which gives a distinctive color to each category of restaurants, and to be a place where couples can celebrate weddings or parties to make it a memorable starting point. On ordinary days, please make use of cucina del NABUCCO as a trattoria where you can feel free to drop by and enjoy simple and fine Italian cuisine casually.
