I am italian, and I have lived in Japan for over 2 years. I got to love many dishes in their cuisine and just could not believe it when a Japanese friend of mine told me she had found a delicious ramen shop in my hometown. Veni, vidi, vici. Or better, edi, I ate, a lot.

Everything is homemade and prepared in an openspace kitchen. No surprises, WYSIWYG. The cook, Maurizio, is an italian martial art teacher married to a sweet Japanese woman who helps him every now and then. Food is really good, the closest to the originals I've found in Rome.

The place is not a restaurant, more of a cultural association which opens on request, so don't expect anything too fancy. But the friendliness is totally in tune with the italian style and makes you feel more part of a family than a japanese restaurant.

And this is exactly the feeling you get in small, local ramen shops in Japan.

Great dishes, very competent staff, great value for money!
