Hors d’oeuvres from OSTERIA Lillicu

The Italian restaurant OSTERIA Lillicu, located near the Kishaba stop on the Kagoshima City Tram, celebrated its third anniversary.

Kuwazuru Akira, the owner of the restaurant, trained for 10 years at Ristorante ACQUA PAZZA, an Italian restaurant in Aoyama, Tokyo. He returned to his hometown of Kagoshima and opened the restaurant on May 7, 2018. His restaurant serves dishes prepared with home-grown organic vegetables and herbs, as well as dishes that bring out the flavor of seafood.

Since last year, the restaurant has enhanced its takeout menu in response to the coronavirus pandemic. The Hors d’Oeuvre Platter (from 4,100 yen for two persons, requiring a minimum of two persons and the reservation at least one day in advance) is especially popular on weekends and holidays. The platter mainly features assorted cured ham and salami, grilled red prawn, roast chicken, and vegetable and mussel salad, and the contents will vary depending on the availability of ingredients.

A la carte takeout menu includes Pate de Campagne (756 yen), Porchetta (756 yen), Tomato Stew with Tripe and Beans (972 yen), Special Lasagna (864 yen), Olives and Pickles (431 yen), Bagna Càuda (432 yen), Gorgonzola Mousse (540 yen), and Chicken Liver Pate (540 yen).

OSTERIA Lillicu also offers the Meat Appetizer Assortment with ham and chicken liver pate and Ham Assortment (both 1,400 yen) for one person, which is “recommended for those who want to enjoy a quiet drink at home.”

“Thanks to the warm support of our customers, we have been able to thrive and develop, and we are very grateful. We will continue striving to meet the expectations of our customers,” said Kuwazuru. “We hope our takeout offerings will make your dinner planning easier. It will take some time to prepare after we receive your orders, so please contact us in advance.”

Opening hours: 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. – 10:00 p.m. (Business hours may change at the request of the national and prefectural governments.) Closed on Sundays.
