Seated right on the shore of the Ushimado Bay, Café Rossa offers delicious Italian food with a pinch of Japanese flavour to it. With local veggies and freshly caught seafood from the area, Café Rossa is a great place to have a taste of what Ushimado has to offer while relaxing and admiring the beauty of the Seto Inland Sea. Why not try out the black squid-ink risotto? Or how about the peperoncino with some nori (edible seaweed) of Ushimado bay mixed with shiso leaves? Instead of attempting to imitate Italian restaurant and Italian dishes, Café Rossa has undoubtedly ‘revisited’ the whole concept of Italian food and created its own creative fusion between these two great culinary cultures. The portions are just the right amount and beautifully presented.
