The hotel offers 98 Rooms and Suites decorated with Italian luxury residential furniture brands like Maxalto, Flexform and B&B Italia, as well as an extraordinary Bulgari Suite.

Bespoke experiences and ultra-exclusive surroundings are at the heart of the one-of-a-kind culinary journey at Sushi Hōseki, the Japanese concept that started at Bulgari Resort Dubai. With only 8 seats overlooking a private Japanese rock garden, the restaurant is helmed by the Japanese Chef Kenji Gyoten, awarded three Michelin Stars at Sushi Gyoten and offers a memorable gastronomic approach with the finest ingredients from Japan.

Iconic Bulgari Hotels signature features such as The Bulgari Bar, Il Ristorante – Niko Romito, the fireplace Lounge, all with outdoor terrace, are available for hotel guests, as well as the Bulgari Dolci boutique, two dramatic Ballrooms and a Wedding Salon for guests who choose to celebrate their ceremony in a Bulgari style.


Since 2007 Bvlgari has brought the brand’s distinctive style and sense of luxury to the cities

of Tokyo and Osaka with the Michelin-starred Italian-style restaurant and lounge bar with

terrace in Ginza, IL RISTORANTE - LUCA FANTIN and a café and chocolate shop in Osaka.

Il Ristorante, which includes a rooftop terrace with an Italian-style garden and lounge bar,

occupies the top four floors of the Bvlgari Ginza Tower, the Bvlgari flagship store in Ginza,

the most prestigious luxury shopping district in Tokyo.

With its imposing 56-meter-high façade, the eleven-floor Bvlgari Ginza Tower is an icon of

metropolitan architecture for customers and visitors to Tokyo. Located at 2-7-12, Ginza,

Chuo-ku, it is home to the largest Bvlgari store in the world, with 940 square meters of retail

floor space. The façade and interiors of the Tower were designed by in-house Bvlgari

architects, while the structure, inspired by a jewel box, was designed by the Shimizu


The four levels of the restaurant are reached by an elevator that departs from a private

lobby located on the ground floor and accessible directly from Marronnier street. Two

private dining rooms and a lounge area are located on the first level, on the eighth floor.

The intermediate level, part of which is double-height, is situated on the ninth and tenth

floors and houses the restaurant and overlooking bar. Enclosed by the large, glass curtain

wall that rises from the ninth floor of the Ginza Tower, Il Ristorante offers a unique view of

Tokyo from all angles thanks to the transparent, full-height glass façade, thus making the

city almost an extension of the interior space. By ascending to the eleventh floor, visitors

can continue admiring the unique panorama of the city from the terrace with Italian-style


In September 2016 Il Ristorante - Luca Fantin unveiled freshly renovated spaces designed

by Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel Interiors and characterized by a modern, elegant, and

rigorous style that echoes the architectural and decorative motifs of the Bvlgari Hotel

restaurant in Milan. To complement, sumptuous new furniture by B&B Italia, Maxalto and

Flexform have enriched the atmosphere of Il Bar.

Undulating hanging curtains made from shimmering silk decorate the imposing nine-meterhigh

windows of the restaurant. Custom-made by world-famous Venetian textile company

Rubelli, a specialist of silk decorations, the curtains feature gold jacquard thread drawings

to evoke The Bvlgari Zodiac. Bvlgari’s eight-pointed star is an eternal symbol of the Roman

jeweller, woven into imaginary constellations that have been inspired by the most famous

symbols of Bvlgari’s creativity.

The constellations embrace Bvlgari’s sparkling jewellery collections with a magical aura: the

femininity of Diva is interpreted by the Peacock, the sheer power of B.zero1 lives on in Leo,

and the sensuality of the snake shines bright in a Serpenti constellation.

Two impressive 7-meter high Murano blown glass chandeliers crown the ambience of Il

Ristorante Luca Fantin to create a sophisticated yet cosy atmosphere. Custom-made by the

Venetian company Barovier & Toso, the leading manufacturer specialized in decorative

lighting of Murano glass, the chandeliers shine like jewelled stars over an elegant earth below.

Il Ristorante, the Bar and the eighth-floor lounge are operated by Bvlgari Hotels & Resorts at the

same standards of service developed for the Bvlgari Hotel in Milan, the Bali Resort and the

Bvlgari Hotel & Residences in London

Based in Tokyo since 2009, Luca has worked at some of the world’s top-ranked restaurants

including La Pergola in Rome, where he was sous chef under Heinz Beck.

His style is a contemporary interpretation of traditional Italian cuisine, based on the use of topquality

Japanese local raw materials that are elaborated with refined techniques and great

creativity. Preferring slow cooking at low temperature rather than sautéed ingredients, his

cookery is extremely light and authentic using herbs and edible flowers such as borage,

calendula, or rosemary to flavour his dishes.

His culinary creativity is particularly expressed with the way he cooks pasta, requiring a perfect

harmony of consistencies. Some of his signature dishes include the “Pappa al Pomodoro” with

crab, black olive chips and herb as well as the “Cacio & Pepe” homemade tagliolini with

scallops, black truffle and chive-flavoured oil.

Luca Fantin’s renowned cuisine added to the perfect combination of contemporary luxury

and tradition, have established Il Ristorante as one of the most sophisticated dining

experiences in Tokyo.

Since 2014 he has taken part to Epicurea, the global gourmet festival of the Bvlgari Hotel in

Milan, where the most prestigious chefs worldwide such as René Redzepi, Virgilio Martinez,

Yoshihiro Narisawa, present a special menu in the frame of the Bvlgari Hotel.

In 2014 he was awarded “Best Italian Chef in the World” by the prestigious Italian culinary guide

Identità Golose by Paolo Marchi, the founder of the guide.

This is the second recognition for Luca Fantin whose restaurant “Il Ristorante” at the #Bvlgari

Ginza Tower had received one Michelin star in 2011.

From April 2015, the restaurant is called Il Ristorante Luca Fantin including the name of the chef.

Luca Fantin also brought Epicurea food festival to Tokyo with top chefs of the world such as

Massimo Bottura, Andoni Luis Aduriz, Carlo Cracco and Rodolfo Guzman.

When it’s not possible to jet off to Japan, foodies from all over the world are now able to

discover his delectable creativities through the beautiful, illustrated volume and its luxury

slipcase LA CUCINA DI LUCA FANTIN. Published by ASSOULINE, the book reads as an exquisite

culinary collection, featuring thirty-two of Fantin’s original recipes. A sophisticated, stunning

coffee-table book, its pages gleam with original photography and detail Fantin’s inspiration for

each dish.
