We chose Scorpione as wanted a change from the many superb pure Japanese meals we've had! Scorpione offers a fusion style between Italian and Japanese.
We loved the location in Gion and thought the old townhouse setting charming.
The service was swift and attentive and the food was very fresh and beautifully presented.
Oddly for a Saturday dinner time the restaurant was quiet and with a very calm ambiance. More people should know about it!!
We would definitely return. Good staff and delicious food - thumbs up from me.

After a thoroughly satisfying but very long day exploring Kyoto, I decided to round it off by visiting Scorpione, which had been mentioned in a book that I read. The restaurant itself is in the heart of Gion, in a house formerly frequented by Geisha, so has heaps of character. I was seated at the bar so could talk with the staff including the chef, Komori-San. Their English was limited but they knew enough to get by and were extremely friendly. The set menu was really excellent, not too much, not too little, and my favorite was the king prawn sashimi mixed with Japanese orange, served in the shell. Next time in Kyoto, I will most certainly return. OKINI !!
