This is a great restaurant. Pricing is mid to high and reasonable. Decor is nice in the "modern trattoria" style. The menu has something for everyone including pizza. Typical Italian dishes are made with care and very well executed. Pasta with "bolognese" sauce was excellent....More

Garlic pasta, blows your mind as too strong. Salad too salty and mozzarella too dry. 6000 yens for a basic bottle of chianti, is not acceptable.

I'd like to say we were able to try the food at this establishment. However, we were unable to make it past the doorway. Upon entering the restaurant, a gentleman, who was either the manager or the owner promptly greeted us by saying "have reservation?"...More

Visited this place because it was late and there did not seem to be anywhere else in the area. We had a pizza and spaghetti with clams. The pizza was very small for the price and while the pasta was quite nice, it too was...More
