We ate pizza here and it was nothing special; not bad but also not very good. This place is cozy! The price of the pizza isn't too high.

Try to call first to make sure open, cosy setting in a log house and nice selection of pasta dishes & pizzas. A favorite and popular place where Hakuba locals eat.

Located in a charming log cabin, this tiny restaurant and very friendly service and offered good basic Italian, mainly pasta and pizza at a very reasonable cost. Take time to enjoy the kitsch displayed in every nook and cranny.

We tried here just because it was near our hotel and went back twice. Lovely wooden building. Excellent pizza and pasta. Everything we tried was great and reasonably priced.
