Worth consideration especially for those special occasions, Aoyama's Casita has that luxury resort feel right in the heart of the city, and is cleverly divided into four separate but connected sections. The main dining area with its upscale Italian fare is suitable for an intimate date, while the terrace is more laidback with its colourful tapas and free-flowing plonk. On sunny days, consider heading out to the deck for lunch (on weekdays) or brunch (on weekends), while warm evenings are when to catch the sunset with a cocktail in hand, or stare up at the stars from the upstairs terrace. Parking is available, but you'll need to fork out ¥2,000 for the pleasure.
