Nice place


I made a reservation and visited on a Saturday afternoon near Christmas.
Unfortunately, I wasn't able to make a reservation for the evening, but during the Christmas season, the lunch and dinner courses were the same, so I started drinking from noon.

The pace of the course is slow, probably due to the emphasis on enjoying conversation, and it takes just over two hours from entering to leaving.

The first two of the three appetizers were cold, but since it was this time of year, I wanted something that was room temperature rather than cold.
Among the courses, I personally liked the appetizer, the white roe truffle, and the meat dish at the end.

The hall is very pleasant and the service is excellent. I had a good meal.


'O Pulecenella' is an Italian restaurant founded in 2001, located 6 minutes walk from the west exit of JR Yokohama Station.

This is a restaurant where you can enjoy casual Italian cuisine in a relaxed atmosphere.

This time I used it for lunch. The course for the day is below.

Course contents (with baguette)
・Assorted 4 types of appetizers
・Pasta dish 1 (smoked Spanish mackerel, Chinese cabbage, dried tomatoes)
・Pasta dish 2 (porpoise squid, maitake mushroom, squid ink)
・Main dish

From appetizers to desserts, there are many carefully prepared dishes. The great thing about it is that you can have two types of pasta, and the smoked Spanish mackerel pasta was a personal hit.

There are many delicious Italian restaurants around Yokohama Station, so you'll be spoiled for choice! Thank you for the meal.
