€Data
A joint venture by
ham importer Prin-
cipe and wine pro-
ducer Zonin, this
casual wine bar
specializes in top
quality cured meats
from San Daniele del
Fruili and Italian
wines. The interior
resembles a stylish
Roman cafe, with
shiny red acrylic
surfaces, a gleaming
metal bar, and
shelves stocked with
books and magazines
about Italy. Italian
radio plays in the
background, and the
friendly chef chats
easily in Japanese
and Italian.

Although the menu
features nicely
prepared pizzas and
pastas, pork - in
all of its various
salted guises -
takes center stage
here: capicola,
mortadella, mild and
spicy salumi, and
two kinds of pro-
sciutto crudo.
Rosebud-pink slices
of prosciutto seco-
lo, aged for over
twenty months and
delicately scented
with white truffle,
melt in the mouth
(Y900 for a small
plate, Y1650 for a
large one), leaving
a lingering sweet-
ness. Savory snacks
like deep-fried
olives stuffed with
ground meat and
spices, and buttery,
flaky pastries
filled with pancetta
and hard-boiled
eggs, provide tasty,
unusual alternatives
to the staid choices
of olives and
tomato-basil brus-
chetta.

The wine list is an
exploration of Ita-
ly's viticultural
landscape, with 45
wines from all over
the country. Around
ten are available by
the glass, and the
three-wine tasting
sets for Y1100 offer
excellent value.
