It is not always easy to find an authentic italian place in japan. This definitely is one. Italian chef, super food. They even bake their own bread which is also delicious! Can only be recommended!

Food was perfect and delicious. Service was questionable. The wait staff is more concerned with up-selling than providing water. I just wanted a glass of water. Waiter stated the tap water was unfiltered. Either to warn me the water quality was bad, or to upsell...More

Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu
There are countless opportunities to shop in the
Shibuya and Harajuku districts, especially in shops
that focus on Japan's "Kawaii" culture. The trendiest
areas are around Shibuya’s Center district, Harajuku's
Takeshita-dori and in Omotesando. If you need to
recharge from all the shopping, you can easily refresh
yourself in Meiji Jingu or Sasaki Park. In contrast,
Ebisu has a more grown up ambiance of calm and cool.
