“Not Japanese”
Reviewed February 20, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

My boyfriend and I dined on a quiet Monday. We ordered a bottle of rose, a a taste of two mozzarellas (regular and smoked) with a side of three dips (excellent), and orders of pesto pasta. The pesto was very good. We thought that the smoked mozzarella was too strong and must be an acquired taste. The dining area was pleasant and perfect for a casual meal. The only drawback is the restroom location, which is far from the dining area.

“Convenient location, very friendly service”
Reviewed November 25, 2013 via mobile

A hidden treasure, this place is perfect for a quick bite (they have a good selection of great sandwiches, perfect coffee, good sweet treats). Sit down area is a bit challenging, in the bar or in the covered plaza, as it gets very crowded. But it is worth the wait. Service is excellent; fast, welcoming, friendly (and with Italian greetings).
