The Double restaurant menu

Evening reservations are essential, with two seating times at 7:30 PM and 9:30 PM. Early arrivals can snag a spot facing the kitchen, offering a front-row view of Chef Tsuyoshi Yamakawa in action, exuding coolness. Others will be seated facing the wall, also on high stools.

The evening kicks off with a delightful selection of natural, orange, or pét-nat wines (orange wine glass at €9.50) as you discover the chef's passion for pasta throughout the menu. Having honed his skills in the coveted kitchens of Milan and Naples, this Osaka native has mastered the art of elevating humble ingredients, adding a Japanese twist to classic Italian recipes. Unique, isn't it?



For the main course, a €62 per person menu offers all the à la carte dishes for sharing. However, we recommend following your cravings and choosing à la carte! Our top picks? The ricotta cream and salmon roe maritozzo (€11), prawn and scallop stuffed ravioli with bisque (€19), white asparagus with béarnaise espuma, blood orange, and bottarga (€14), casarecce with tomatoes, pak choi, doubanjiang, and lime (€18), or for dessert, a lovingly homemade dorayaki (€10).

Open Tuesday to Saturday from 7:30 PM to 11 PM. Reservations are mandatory.
