After hearing a friend say how great the restaurant was I decided to find out for myself, but sorry to say I came away disappointed. Perhaps I was expecting too much. My first disappointment was the pizza margherita. The pizza was nondescript and the three basil leaves certainly didn't contribute much to its flavour. Even after adding the chlili sauce which was left on the table the pizza was bland. The pasta dishes were fine, but the tomato sauce on one didn't taste fresh. The most positive part of the meal was the good service.

Nice warm place with great Italian food, I really wonder where they can source this in Japan, with a lively atmosphere and a great crew. The boss is awesome, so Italian , feels like being there !

Had a delicious meal on the fourth floor of this ristorante. The owner provided the group an incredible array for dinner which included pasta, pizza, pork, and drinks. Great job, Pietro!

This is one of my favorite Italian restaraunts in Kobe.
It's just a couple of minute walk from Sannomiya station. I like the atmosphere of the restaraunt; the interior is not too formal, not too casual, but comfortable. I especially like the pizzas and
the lunch time menu, where the prices are reasonable. Service is nice and friendly. For example, the waiter will offer to divide the pasta into two plates (or number of people at the table) so we can share. Many restaurants don't offer to do, and I think that's a good service.
I think the restaurant is suitable for many occasions; dates, business and family gatherings. Children are also welcome, which is nice to know.
