Va Bene's casual
ground-floor bar is
a convivial spot to
enjoy some scrump-
tious meaty snacks
along with a glass
of wine or two. The
assorted appetizer
plate (Y980) is a
perfect match for a
robust Italian red,
and our platter
featured a rich,
almost buttery liver
mousse that was one
of the highlights of
our day. Other wine-
friendly starters
include spicy tripe
stew, horsemeat
tartar and sauteed
octopus with mush-
rooms.

The bar offers a
dozen or more wines
by the glass (from
Y480) and another
forty by the bottle
(Y2900-15,000). The
list covers the
globe - Italy,
France, Chile, Spain
- plus a huge selec-
tion of domestic
Japanese wines. They
also have a few
Japanese craft beers
on tap, but the wine
list is much more
interesting and
seems better suited
to the food.

The main section of
Va Bene's menu fo-
cuses on charcoal-
grilled Hokkaido
beef and other
meats, along with
pastas and Italian-
inspired vegetable
dishes. There's a
full-fledged dining
room up on the sec-
ond floor if you
decide to make a
night of it. Budget
around Y3000-4000
for dinner with
drinks.
