Ristorante Lastricato

What sets it apart from most other middle-range Italian eateries, though, is chef Masakazu Hasumi's massive enthusiasm for vegetables. An energetic man not long out of his 20s, he loads his menu with them, from the opening appetizers and colorful antipasti through to his main courses, where they assume just as much importance as the meat or fish they accompany.
