Takeshi Ito


Takeshi Ito, our good friend and extremely talented executive chef, hails from Tokyo, where he learned his craft in some of the best sushi and fusion restaurants in the city.

On his arrival in Prague 12 years ago he joined the team at Yamato, a well-known Michelin rated Japanese restaurant in Prague.

Takeshi joined Soul Love in June of 2022 and is a very popular member of our ever-expanding team. Sushi and fusion are his specialties, and his artistic background adds that extra ‘something special’ to every dish that he creates. Interestingly enough, Takeshi actually graduated from the Institute of Glass Art in Tokyo, and subsequently received a scholarship to study at the world-renowned Gerrit Rietvel Academy in Amsterdam.

‘I imagine every dish as an artistic adventure, and it fills me with enormous joy and satisfaction to combine my love of art with my profession’.

Takeshi has a wonderful vision for our future and we look forward to realising these dreams together.
