Italian Cuisine

TEL. +81 75 468 3166 (Reservations at one of our restaurants)

The culinary team at FORNI pay their respects to the tradition of handmade dishes. Italy has a rich and bountiful nature – a wonderful source for delicious fresh ingredients – something it shares with Kyoto. Here guests can experience all of the 24 distinct terms of the solar calendar through flavorful dishes made from the freshest Italian and locally-sourced Kyoto ingredients. Visible from all seating locations, the garden at FORNI will also reflect the seasons. FORNI also features an okudosan – a traditional Japanese kamado-style cooking range – reimagined as a oven for pizzas and oven-roasted dishes.
