Delicious Italian food with a cool steam train pizza oven! I liked the rustic Italian bistro atmosphere and the thin-crust style pizza. This place also has amazing desserts


Great service, kind staff and great food!


The atmosphere inside the store is calm and very nice.
Although it was midday on a weekday, the place filled up quickly as soon as it opened.
The food was delicious, but the pizza and pasta alone were not enough, so I thought it would be a good idea to order something extra.

The one disappointing thing is that the parking lot is parallel, so we parked at the back and had to ask the car in front of us to let us out once, which was a bit of a shame.

The atmosphere seems to be better for dinner in the evening.


It was a stylish Italian restaurant.

I tried the courses, and they were all delicious with a strong flavor.

There is also a limited parking lot.
Also, there are private rooms, so if you are bringing children, it might be a good idea to make a reservation if you can.


Visited first thing on Saturday morning. We arrived a little before opening time, but there were groups waiting, so the staff was kind enough to let us in a little earlier.
When I visited without a reservation, I was told that the only seats available were seats for two or the counter, so it would be best to make a reservation.
I ordered pizza and pasta, but the dough of pizza is so thin that it breaks just by lifting it, so it seems that everyone's taste is different.
The building is a registered tangible cultural property of the country, and you can dine in a calm, retro atmosphere.
