Excellent food and service. Highly recommend. We will definitely be back in the future. The pizza was delicious, home made bread and pasta as well.


The pizza is legit. Having lived in Italy. This is closest you’ll find to authentic Italian pizza in Kyoto. I had the margarita and I wished I ordered a second pizza. Not sure when I’ll get the chance to eat another pizza like this. The gelato was a disappointment though. It was more like store bought ice cream rather than gelato. It’s ok but nothing like gelato.

Food was superb.
Price was high but matched the quality. This isn't fast food pizza.
The bread was so delicious I could have cried.
They are currently hiring and don't look like they have enough hands, so the staff struggled to keep up with the patrons -> the customer service didn't quite match the menu's quality, but I didn't mind because the food was so good lol.
Restaurant was clean, offered amenities, and well decorated.
Warning: Because the place is so busy, you can only stay 1 hour during high traffic times, so plan accordingly.
Warning: Because they only use fresh ingredients, popular dishes might run out.
