One of my Italian colleagues recommended this restaurant. And no doubt they delivered.
Amazing testing of pastas and wines.
Plus their homemade salami is hands down the best ones I have ever tested.

Amazing dining experience. The staff is super friendly and attentive. Definitely a must have experience for all the Italian food lovers.


One of the best Italian restaurants in Tokyo. Food is authentic, interior makes you feel like being in Italy, service is friendly, price is reasonable. For me, it’s perfect. Only problem is that we are too much. Ordered 2 desserts but they were so cute!!


One of the best Italian restaurants in Tokyo, hands down. I have been going there for a while, and it has always delivered.

Lunch sets are a steal: for 1000-3000 yen one gets you an authentic pasta (from a choice of 4-5) and much more (appetizer, secondi, etc.) depending on the set. The sets receive constants updates to ensure that even regular customers get the best out of Davide's (the chef) masterful cooking.

Dinner with à la carte menu featuring food from Abruzzo (where the owners are from), and the chef's creations, which in my opinion are well worth the price.
