You see every ethnicity of guests eating here. This is a good sign that the food transcends culture and taste. Great food and great casual atmosphere. The service needs more effort as they need to pay attention to the sequence of order and to how...More

I haven't been to Itsuki in over a year and was really impressed with improvements in service and food. We had the okonomiyaki appetizer (savory pancake with meat and vegetables) that was as good as those I've had in Japan! We followed with a course...More

We have been dining at Itsuki for decades, since they started as a tiny hole in the wall cafe on outer, upper State Street. The food was wonderful there, and the service, too. Of course we came to the new location when the business reopened...More
