The cottage is incredibly cosy with decor reminiscent of an Irish pub, The food was great and to top it off, momo-san was an excellent hostess able to speak three languages and made for very stimulating conversations and tips on getting around Kanazawa. I definitely recommend that you visit if you're in town!

I do not leave many references for restaurants, but my boyfriend and I had such a nice stay at The Cottage that it's worth the review! I was all overworked and emotional that day because of our intense last days and changes of plans, and I really came to a rest in Tony's and Momo's place. From the start they... More

The Cottage is a cozy little restaurant with a very personal touch. The menu is small, but all dishes are freshly made. We both ordered the house-made tagliatelle al pomodorro. It was just what we have looked for. A simple Italian dish almost in perfection. Together with the good house wine this was a very welcome change to the Japanese... More

The food was great, but the owners were even better! Very friendly and had good suggestions for things to do. I had the beef stew. It was filling and comforting. The tea and apple crumble were also very good.

The Cottage is that rare find of good food and great people. I found this tiny restaurant when I was in Kanazawa five years ago and, after two weeks of Japanese food, was hankering for some western cooking. The restaurant is small, with about 12 seats, and is chef owned by a married couple: Momo (the host) and Tony (the... More

Trying to escape a hot and crowded town centre, this place ticked all the boxes. Fresh pasta (honestly one of the best I ever had including the ones on my trips to Italy) thin crust pizza, nice wine and a first introduction to proper Irish whisky. Tony & Momo are lovely (& lively 😀) with a good sense of humour.... More

Ok service, small place and very very steep prices absolutely not justified by what is served (the portions are small and they are just ok).

Friends suggested my group and I attend this seemingly quaint hole in the wall pub with supposedly desirable Italian cuisine. We were greeted at the door with a brusk, "We're not open 'til 6, you'll have to come back." This was at 5:50 p.m.. We strolled the cute neighborhood filled with desirable eateries and shops. We decided we were in... More

I was lucky because the owners told me that they will be away for a month. The food was great with a nice atmosphere and enjoyed a friendly chat with Tony and Momo. John UK

We had a lovely evening tonight at The Cottage. We both had pizza, thin and crispy, just the way we like it. The tiramisu was good, too. Thank you to Momo and Tony for your hospitality.
