“Amazing Italian restaurant in Takyama”

This little family run restaurant was absolutely amazing. Unobtrusive, great food and a lovely atmosphere in a little town in the middle of Japan.
The chef was very friendly and spoke some English, enough to order food and chat a little about where we were from.
The food was fantastic - local Hida mozzarella on the caprese salad and amazing wood fired pizza made right in front of you in the big oven. Wine and beer was nice too.

Was well worth the walk as this place isn’t in the centre of town but would highly recommend venturing out for it (even though it wasn’t on the Main Street it wasn’t far, about 10 minutes).

I was early and had the place to myself. The Chef was very friendly and the food came quick. Had a pizza margherita and it was delicious! Will definitely recommend this when you're in Takayama!

Bit of a walk out of town, but well worth it. Pizza is made in a proper wood-fired oven and the base is proper hand-made dough. I had the Apple, Gorgonzola and honey which was really good. Definitely recommend.

My husband and I were craving something other than Japanese food and found this place. What a gem! The proprietor did everything, waiting, preparing from scratch, cooking and bartending. It was fantastic, we had a Caprese salad and pizza from a wood stove. To make things more difficult he had 2 Italian groups of customers, and by the time we left, a full house. I can say that it is some of the quickest and most pleasant service we have had and a great meal too. It's a bit off the beaten track but worth it, highly recommended.
