One of my favorite restaurant in Japan! My husband and I used to come here when we were still dating more than 20 years ago. So this time, when we decided to come quick trip to Japan, this restaurant was a must. I booked dinner and foods were amazing as always. Atmosphere was great. It made me feel like we were in small restaurant somewhere in Italy! Thank you so much for everything. Tiramisu was the best tiramisu I’ve ever had. Definitely highly recommended!


One of the best places to get pasta in Ebisu. I also really like the ambience. When we were ordering for lunch, the waiter didn’t ask us for drinks and just automatically thought we want coffee and I don’t drink coffee. We were able to change the drink.


This place offers fantastic service, food and pride. Prices might be at some disadvantage for its merits, but it's definitely one of the most recommended in Tokyo for Italian cuisine. Great dolce too!
