“Solid Italian food in Kyoto”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

We ate here twice, and both times the food was excellent. The language barrier is a challenge at times, but they were gracious and accommodating, even though we had some major dietary restrictions.

“very average Italian food, but you don't come to Kyoto to eat pizza, right?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

Food was very average. Pasta was overcooked and bland. Pizza wasn't thin and crispy, and toppings were very bland again. If you need a break from Japanese food at some point during your stay, it's fine, but otherwise no reason to visit (well - maybe for the really beautiful view outside the window).

“Italian goodness.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

Ordering home made Italian ricotta from a sweet Japanese waitress who spoke great English is just one reason to patronize this restaurant; especially if you are in or near the Hyatt Regency. The minestrone soup, calamari, and Caprese Salad were tasty and the wine list, while small, has a nice variety.

“Wonderful Italian food, but on the pricey side”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

We ate here twice and truly enjoyed it. The service was wonderful, the food very good and they even created vegan pasta dishes especially for my husband.

“Good enough Italian food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012

In this area (e.g. if you are staying at the Hyatt), there isn't a lot of choice. We had some pizzas at this hotel restaurant and they were good. Wine also fine, if somewhat expensive. We had the cheapest red and it was perfectly nice.
