In Italy, they say “Mangiare (Eating)”. “Cantare (Singing)”, and “Amore (Loving)” bring joy in life. We believe that a restaurant must also be a place to enjoy food, sing in joy, and fall deeper in love. We open such a restaurant in Hannamdong. “IL CHIASSO (hustle and bustle)” delivers the joy of Italian cuisine with authentic food, the cheerful service by Italian staffs, and a lively atmosphere created from the restaurant and customers. We look forward to welcoming you.
Il CHIASSO imports its ingredients and wine from Italy and makes dishes including bread, sweets and aged meat with traditional Italian methods. Every part of the interior, cooking and service exudes with Italy's love, brightness, and comfort. Customers are greeted in a space that truly feels like Italy with our commitment to Italian interior, charcoal grills, and Italian service. Customers can have a pleasant experience while enjoying the harmony of food, atmosphere and service of Italy.
Our restaurant is decorated in a simple yet luxurious interior style with warm and elegant furnishings that are standard for Italian restaurants such as the “straw-woven chairs" or Tuscan chandeliers, mustard yellow tablecloths fitting our color scheme, and a large charcoal kiln. The stone kiln grilling sea food or T-bone steak on charcoal instantly invites our customers stepping into our store to the Italian world. The chef’s room is also a special characteristic of our restaurant. This room is specially prepared for our familiar customers, so they can enjoy special off-menu dishes or be served directly by the chef.
