Some reviews are critical of this place's food quality, but I actually found the food ok. It's not the best you can get in the area but the service was great and the atmosphere very nice. I was a bit early for the a-la-carte menu, but they happily served me what I wished to have, and when I was about to leave after my meal the waiter insisted I stay for a complimentary coffe or tea. All for a very good price. Even if the food wasn't top it made my lunch very pleasurable.

You might also be tempted to try this pleasant looking and cheap Italian cafe on the second floor of Shinagawa station, which offers several reasonably priced (1000 yen) lunch sets. I was seated at a precariously balanced high table that almost fell over; when I asked for another table, the waiter grabbed my bag and moved it to another less precarious one. I ordered the 1100 yen combination which includes a half sized pizza and pasta, as well as salad, soup, and a drink. Unfortunately all, with the exception of the salad and coffee, were mediocre. The pasta's meat sauce was overly salty, while the pizza, which had some nice vegetables on it, was ruined by an excess of cheap supermarket-style sausage slices and generally tasted like something you'd find in the supermarket freezer section. The coffee was fine but when the waiter refilled my water there was a strange piece of food floating in it. The atmosphere is ok and the place is usually full for lunch, but there are several better options on this floor, including the pricey but good Oyster Bar, so I doubt I'll be going back anytime soon.
