This place was popular for good reason. On a tiny mostly residential street. Superb Italian food. We had no reservations but they let us in to enjoy a beverage. Great wine list. We enjoyed a multi course dinner where every taste was great. Limited English spoken. Menu has Italian words. Pricey but worth it. Best meal of the 2 week trip

Saw the great reviews on this restaurant and they all proved to be true. One of the best restaurants we've been to, home or abroad. The food was magnificent but the service was the highlight. Free appetizer as a gift from the Chef was truly appreciated and warmly received. Attentive staff who accommodated our limited Italian and even less Japanese. Do your a favour when in Kyoto and find this restaurant on a side street and make this your first stop. Outstanding on every level, 5 stars.

Not a pizza joint, but a fine dining experience. Went there last night with the family in very casual attire, enjoyed stellar service, a special treat from the Chef as well as a great meal. Food presentation was as good we have had around the globe. Not large portions, but the food was delicious. Would go again in a heart beat.

It may or may not have been one of the best meals I've eaten in a restaurant, but it
certainly was excellent and memorable. The ambience, friendly attention of the staff (despite reduced skills in English) and food were excellent. This is a restaurant for adults who appreciate fine dining; the presence of kids looking for pizza or whatever could have been unsettling for other customers. Note to the reviewer who walked 45 minutes to get to Misato: it is a 5 - 10 minute casual walk from the Gojo subway station. I endorse all the comments of Southaustinfoodie in her review, as I was part of her party that evening.

Great place, we had the seats overlooking the kitchen. Chef really knew what he was doing. Good value for Kyoto. We had delicious gulash and a dish with slices of beef with rucola and parmezan. Even got an appetizer as a surprise. Although staff did not understand English very well they were really nice.
