In bustling Gion, but under the cherry trees near a side canal is Gion S, an Italian restaurant in operation for about 9 years. The wine, lunch of mushroom pasta, wrapped pizza and capresee were prompt, delicious and fairly priced; sitting outside was a joy - minus the convenience store, and I could only imagine what Hanami might have been like; staff friendly and bilingual. Takes credit cards.

When i visited this place, my wife desparately needed a restroom.
When the waitress got to know that it was because of her “time of the month“, she refused her to access the rest room and asked her to leave!!!!!
This is absolutely unacceptable for such an emergency.
We thus left this place without ordering anything.

We stopped here by chance, cold and desperate for food for our toddler. The staff welcomed us in and quickly provided menus and bread sticks to snack on. Menu is Italian food but a lot of choice. We were delighted with our salad/pizza/pasta - very fresh, totally delicious and quick service. Our dessert and coffee was also excellent. Staff were super friendly and didn't mind the noise of our toddler.

The only downside is that it is smoking (like many restaurants in Japan).

Highly recommend!

We stopped in here for a quick cake and coffee mid afternoon. Usually being a smoking place would bother me but it didn't here so the ventilation must be pretty good.

However, the cake and coffee was good but it cost almost $25! Over $7 for a coffee in a small place like this is just too much. There's many other places nearby just as good and not as expensive.
