Was attracted by the very high ratings but was disappointed. Expected an Italian restaurant - but NO pizza, NO pasta! Our group of six sat down and received NO attention until we asked to see menu. Prices on each item were reasonable, implying it was...More

We really like good italian food and this restaurant met all my expectations. There are very few tables. The chef comes to greet you and after the meal he says goodbye to you. So kind. The rocket salad and all the pastas were very good.

Service was impeccable, and the food was absolutely delicious!!! The veal that I had was the best veal that I have ever eaten. It just melted in my mouth. It was such a wonderful dining experience in a very intimate setting. Highly recommend!!!!

Lovely tiny restaurant (5 tables) in Gion (Kyoto) with exquisite and delicious menu and specialties from Piemont. The Japanese owner/chef spent eight years in North Italy learning from the best chefs! Don't miss it!

Found this small Italian restaurant around the Gion district by accident. Food was surprisingly good and the ambience was nice. Highly recommended!

Gion is Kyoto's famed Geisha District (called "Geiko"
in Kyoto). Though Gion's many tea houses and
entertainment restaurants are closed to foreigners,
Geiko and Maiko in their traditional makeup with
gilded hair in full kimono can be seen drifting the
streets on their way to and from work, where they fan
dance, sing, and play instruments for customers. Gion
lights up at night, when the ancient-looking streets
