Chef Tian Yip offers his own interpretation of Itameshi and Asian-influenced Italian through a thoughtful menu, including a range of small plates that play with Asian spices, seasonally rotating pasta that is the core of the Itameshi cuisine, and a few large plates focused on locally sourced ingredients.  “Everything is meant to be shared”.
