Along a busy street after 5 minutes’ walk from Ikebukuro station, there is a nice wine bar called ‘Di Punto’at the first floor of the basement. The wine red signboard of the restaurant will lead you to the wooden entrance door. When you open the door, you can see the bar counter with many wine bottles and glasses displayed. There is an open kitchen where you can see the chefs cooking and preparing your dishes. The wooden tables and chairs makes the space cozy and relaxing, as if you visited your friend’s house. There are several sister stores in other places which have the same atmosphere.

In exchange of the table charge of 300 yen, you can eat French bread as much as you like which goes well with other dishes.

One of the recommendation is ‘Plate of Prosciutto, Jamon Serrano and Salami’. It is an assortment of plenty of uncured ham and salami for it’s price. You can also add vegetable toppings with additional fee.

Another recommendation is ‘Mozzarella di Bufala Campana D.O.P’ which is a buffalo mozzarella delivered directly from Southern Italy once a week. You can taste the milky, slightly sweet taste of the cheese itself, and also eat together with tomatoes and basil or high-quality olive oil. Even if it is sold out, they have many kinds of cheese dishes which you can enjoy with wine.

For the main dish, ‘Oven baked Penne with Crab and Tomato Cream Sauce’ is the restaurant’s specialty. The rich aroma and taste of the crab is well mixed with the penne.

They have many kinds of wine including Lambrusco which is a sparkling red wine which especially goes well with the uncured ham. Sagria with fresh fruits in it and sparkling wine is also good while enjoying having conversation with others.

Have a nice time at Di Punto with wine and your favorite dishes!!
