We eat here most evenings when in Nozawa as my kids love the pizza and pasta. Very fresh and delicious. Doesn't look like much from the outside but it's right in the heart of Nozawa diagonally opposite the famous Oyu Onsen. Must be booked in...More

I reviewed Pasta di Pasti, but was actually writing a review for Kaze no Ie. Read my review there. There is nothing special about this place other than it serves Italian food. But why get it in Nozawa?
