We arrived in Hakuba in the evening and this was the first/nearest place to eat after a long journey. As a family of four we ordered two pasta dishes, two pizzas and 'shoestrings' (french fries). Food was good. We weren't kept waiting for it and...More

We grabbed a takeaway for our first night in Happo. There wasn't a lot of waiting and the pizza (sausage and spinach) was really tasty. The base thin and crispy and not overdone with cheese, very enjoyable!

Decent, wood-fired pizzas. Good salad. Convenient location if you are staying in Happo, or just come off the mountain.

Went here for dinner last night. After reading reviews we ordered a few of the wood fired pizzas. They were fresh & quite yum. Although there wasn't much on the toppings. Service was a little slow as one waitress for the restaurant

This café is well located in Hakuba. We had pizza and salad which are mainstream dishes. The pizza was really disappointing in terms of quality and the service was even worse. Any time we needed to order anything, we had to approach the staff rather...More

While it was great to have some warm wood fired pizza to warm the cold of the night, the service we were provided was shocking. We started the night by being seated outside the restuarant, after about half an hour of watching empty tables inside...More
