Allettante, where you can have Italian brazier pizza and freshly made pasta. Here is not only a stylish place to eat but also is where to shop for luxurious accessories. Since the chef here has studied culinary skill abroad in Italy so that the menu of Allettante is relatively rich and doubtlessly authentic.

Of course, the whole bowl of seafood upgrades the taste of fresh-made pasta but a glass of wine will upgrade your mood and dining atmosphere, won't it? ;)

Justin Steak, a famous Itaewon restaurant that proud of its platings in every dish as well as steak and cream pasta.

We'd like to recommend their Hot Pasta Rose with large shrimp for you. It's a bit spicy that balances the greasy of sauce, which is really well cooked!

??Justin's signature steak which is drool-worthy already by only looking at the picture! Steak is served with delicious veggie side dishes as grill paprika, sweet pumpkin, and mushrooms.

Subtle lighting in the café Double Life makes it a cosy space. Especially when they show the nostalgic art movies on the wall through a beam projector, it turns your visit an immersive experience as if you were the roles from old movies.

As the name Double Life says, day time is good but you can feel another atmosphere here when you visit in the evening. Have a great time to drink a cup of warm tea and have a great conversation with good friends in this quiet space.

10. Palette Hannam 빠레뜨한남

  • Address: 53 Itaewon-ro 54-gil, Hannam-dongYongsan-gu, Seoul
  •                   서울 용산구 이태원로54길 53
  • Hours: 11:30 - 21:00
  • Menu recommendations: Omelet rice 11,000krw / Gyudong (Japanese style beef rice) 8,500krw


【The BEST Restaurants& Cafes in Itaewon】Only insider knows the 10 Best that you don't wanna miss out!


Palette Hannam is one of the fewer restaurants in Itaewon where you can enjoy delicious meals at a reasonable price. They have many popular menus such as pasta, omelette rice, gyudong, and rice topped with avocado, while butter curry pasta with chicken and omelette rice are the two that we'd like to recommend you the most. Although they all taste very good (srsly, a super honest review!)

Can you believe that you can have a gyudong, a GOOD one, with only 8,500krw in Itaewon? ?? It tastes better if you mix the egg yolk together!

Enjoy a delicious meal in Palette Hannam, where you can enjoy tasty food as well as good vibe! I personally love their marble interior so much!
