Open 11am-10pm (LO). Closed Mondays.

Artisanal mozzarella and ricotta cheeses are freshly made right here in Shibuya in this combination retail shop, cafe and factory. Take them home - fresh mozzarella is Y550/100g, ricotta Y470 - or pull up a chair in the cafe corner and peruse the cheese-centered menu.

Sandwiches are served on long rye rolls, with combinations like ricotta and salami, mozzarella with egg and truffle oil, and summer vegetables with cheese, all with optional prosciutto as a Y100 add-on. The dessert menu features orange- and peach-flavored ricotta puddings and a couple of cheesy muffin variations.

Drinks include wine and beer, coffee and Italian lemonade, and, for the adventurous cheese fan - fruit-flavored whey drinks. Sandwiches start at Y480.
