This charming neighborhood Italian joint serves quite tasty food along with reasonably priced wines. The chef isn't shy about intense flavors - the caprese starter incorporates rocket to give it added bite, and the ravioli is loaded down with parmesan cheese for a very umami-rich experience. Lamb and other meats are grilled to perfection, in nicely sized portions.
At lunchtime you can choose from grilled-meat or pasta-centered daily specials, all priced at Y1000, and there's a separate take-out menu of bentos priced at Y500-750. Budget around Y2000-3000 at dinnertime for food and drink.
