Trattoria Trussardi (イタリア料理「トラサルディー」, Itaria Ryōri 'Torasarudī', lit. "Italian Restaurant Trussardi"), otherwise simply known as Tonio's Restaurant, is a recurring minor location featured in the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure series. It is a recently established Italian restaurant owned and managed by Tonio Trussardi, later assisted by his girlfriend, Virgina, and is situated in the Diamond is Unbreakable Japanese town of Morioh.
The restaurant is featured in several media, first appearing in Chapter 38 of Diamond is Unbreakable, and later showing up in the spin-off series Thus Spoke Kishibe Rohan. It is also implied to exist in other JoJo canon, being JoJolion; and is also referenced in the Thus Spoke Kishibe Rohan TV Drama.
Trattoria Trussardi is a recently-established Italian restaurant; owned, managed and mainly resided by Tonio Trussardi. Situated in the Diamond is Unbreakable city of Morioh, it is a fairly large building consisting of multiple floors, although only the first floor is available to customers. It is next to Kunimitōge Cemetary where Keicho Nijimura is buried.
The front of the restaurant is decorated with a pair of mini Italian flags occupying the upper sides of the door, as the restaurant is advertised as Italian. Above this is the sign to the restaurant itself, reading "Trattoria トラサルヂー (Trussardi)". Furthermore, a menu stands outside, reading 'up to the customer', reflecting the restaurants unique service of not having a menu and instead serving dishes determined by dining customers' health.
Inside is the dining area, featuring only 2 separate tables, each with 3 chairs, as the restaurant lacks sufficient staff for more. However, 2 sofa-chairs sit to the left of the front door with a small table between them. The room is full of Italian-themed decorations, including furniture, paintings, ornaments, and other niche displays.
Through an open doorway across the dining room lies a typical restaurant kitchen where Tonio prepares his dishes with the assistance of his Stand, Pearl Jam. A small room connected to this kitchen also allows Tonio to try out his dishes on his puppy who resides in said room.
Trattoria Trussardi is considered one of Morioh's landmarks and places of interest.
Thus Spoke Kishibe Rohan
This is where Virgina is introduced as being Tonio's girlfriend, having a large brain tumour that Tonio hopes on curing – something which even his Pearl Jam isn't capable of with his current ingredients. Although it is unclear whether she is a permanent resident of the restaurant after Tonio brings her to Morioh, she at least stays there for a while, helping Tonio with his business.
Differences Between Media
While mostly minor, there are notable differences between the design for certain aspects of Trattoria Trussardi between JoJo media – the original manga, anime adaptation, and Thus Spoke Kishibe Rohan one-shot appearances:
