Located hidden away off the main streets of bustling Kita-Aoayama, Il Lupino Prime, which opened in July 2022, is the perfect place to enjoy a festive Christmas dining experience.
Upon entering Il Lupino Prime guests are greeted with a luxurious bar dining area which is both delightfully lit by natural light during the day, and candlelight style overhead lights shine a golden warmth over those who chose to have a glass of wine or a craft cocktail after sunset.

The terrace is pet friendly so those wishing to spend Christmas with their fluffy friends will feel very much at home here.

Friday December 16th until Sunday 25th December.

This is followed by Caccuicco seafood soup, a Tuscan speciality with shrimp and scallops. The Christmas Course main dish features a t-bone steak cooked to perfection at high temperature. The truffle risotto is the perfect companion to this impressive t-bone.
