Il Cuore Restaurant in Florence
Welcome to Il Cuore Restaurant! In the heart of the artistic city of Florence, we will delight all of your senses with the art of the japanese authentic cuisine, that will introduce you with lightness and grace in the universe of the traditional food of Japan.
The basics of Japanese cuisine
Harmony of shapes and colours. Beauty and aesthetic feeling. For japanese people, in addition to the satisfaction gave by food, the first sense involved is the eyesight. Every element thought to be eaten is in first place savoured with the eye. The dish becomes a work of art that follows the precise rules of harmony and grace, combinations of colours and shapes that can result charming and balanced. This is the authentic Japanese cuisine.
When the sight is satisfied enough, also for japanese people, the taste is very important. Some people mistakenly think that japanese cuisine is simple, and the ingredients are worked on as little as possible. In the atempt of preserving the pureness of a product, it’s not simple at all to enhance it’s taste. There for we try to mantain the cooked ingredients as much as possible unspoiled, mixing them so that we can enhance the flavour at it’s best. To each component of the course is provided justice, in this purposely minimalist cuisine. Each product gets sublimated and processed with respect and kindness, in it’s journey from the kitchen to the table of the customer.
The mission of a Japanese restaurant in Florence
We choose to exclusively use only fresh products of the highest quality. We believe that in the experience of a typical japanese dinner there aren’t just the excellence of the dishes and the primary products though, but also a “ritual” that accompanies the guests during their japanese journey. The kindness and the typical japanese elegance, the hospitality and the finesse are combined to a selection of charming and exquisite dishes. These features make the whole meal a relaxing and special moment to enjoy. Our japanese staff will offer you an unique experience, bringing inside the city of Florence a small corner of japanese tradition. We will make you discover scents and particular food pairings thanks to the personal wine selection of our Sommelier (authentically japanese), and with a huge choice of liquors and sake from the Land of The Rising Sun.
