We went here 3 years ago on our honeymoon in Japan. Today we revisited the restaurant. The taster menu was sublime. The food is always elegantly presented and tastes as good as it looks.
The service is attentive never intrusive and even though the menu is in Italian and Japanese they go to great lengths to translate it.

For a special experience and amazing food this is one place not to miss. Its worth every yen.

We went there for dinner, it was delicious. When we arrived around 20h50, there was some other tables with clients but at 21h everyone had left and we were alone. We tought the restaurant close earlier as it was monday but we have never been rushed and the service was excellent, very kind and warm until the end.

The food was very good, we each ate an appetizer after the free "mise en bouche" they served (very good) and then carbonara and pepper/anchovy pasta plates. They were excellent and reasonable portion.

They don't have english menu, only italian and japanese, but the server was very good in english and kindly explained all the menu to us.

Good experience in a chic restaurant !

I arrive here without planning, as I walked by it in a small Street between Kyoto station and the river. It is a small restaurant with nice decor (especially the bathroom...) with friendly staff and great service. I arrived here around noon when they had served lunch. 2 set menus were offered. The food is mixture of Italian and Japanese quizine. I set at the bar facing the open spotless kitchen and I enjoyed the elegant preparation of the meal.. Everything was delicious. While I was eating it started raining. The hostess would let me leave the place without an umbrella. Prices are very resonable. I enjoyed the meal and the service very much. Thank you!

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.
