We ate here several times recently. The pizza was great, wonderful caprese salad, and amazing homemade pasta. The place is very small, so reservations are a good idea. Owner & his wife were very sweet and made us feel very welcome and important!

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.
