Appetizer and pizza were pretty good for its price, steak was ok.


I went during the second half of lunch (from 1:15 p.m.). It was fun and delicious as delicious food came out little by little. The selling point here is that they use sesame seeds and sesame oil from a famous sesame oil shop in neighboring Kyoto, which I think is good for your health.
In a sense, it's like Kyoto cuisine.
Unusual and delicious Italian food.
I think the price is also cheap considering the food.
There are two courses: 1,980 yen and 2,750 yen (prices may change).
Reservations are required as it is popular among locals.
I was also surprised that takeout pizza was only 1,000 yen per piece 😆 The crispy type pizza is also delicious ☀️


This is a sesame restaurant directly managed by Yamada Oil Co., Ltd. in Katsura, Kyoto. Sesame is used in all dishes. Roasted sesame seeds, ground sesame seeds, kneaded sesame seeds, and golden sesame oil. Both sesame seeds and sesame oil have a very strong aroma, but they are not unpleasant at all and enhance the flavor of all dishes without being overpowering. It is not Japanese soy sauce that is used to sprinkle golden sesame oil on various dishes, but I was surprised that it would go so well with it. It was the first time in my life that I put golden sesame seeds on the ice cream that comes out at the end, but it was surprisingly delicious, and I would like everyone to try Yamada Oil's golden sesame oil on top of their vanilla ice cream.
