Good Italian food, nice design with long counter in front of the open kitchen.


My first visit to Hanatani, which I was interested in. On the day, we had a late start due to JR delays, but they welcomed us without being rushed.
The menu had a relaxing menu with many Japanese ingredients. I was surprised by the first dish, Persiew set meal! The last pasta made me suddenly feel sick to my stomach, so next time I visit, I would like to ask if it is possible for two people to make one pasta.
Although we were seated at the counter, we were able to spend a very relaxing time at the wide counter table.


This is a popular shop. I used it for lunch.
We were seated at a table, but the plates were large compared to the size of the table, so if two people were seated facing each other, the table would be filled with too many plates, making it difficult to use the cutlery and making it feel cramped.
The cuisine was somewhat unique Italian, and I felt the chef's strong point.
It seems that the counter seats at the previous restaurant were good because the distance between the chef and customers was close.
