This place was popular for good reason. On a tiny mostly residential street. Superb Italian food. We had no reservations but they let us in to enjoy a beverage. Great wine list. We enjoyed a multi course dinner where every taste was great. Limited English spoken. Menu has Italian words. Pricey but worth it. Best meal of the 2 week... More

Saw the great reviews on this restaurant and they all proved to be true. One of the best restaurants we've been to, home or abroad. The food was magnificent but the service was the highlight. Free appetizer as a gift from the Chef was truly appreciated and warmly received. Attentive staff who accommodated our limited Italian and even less Japanese.... More

Not a pizza joint, but a fine dining experience. Went there last night with the family in very casual attire, enjoyed stellar service, a special treat from the Chef as well as a great meal. Food presentation was as good we have had around the globe. Not large portions, but the food was delicious. Would go again in a heart... More

It may or may not have been one of the best meals I've eaten in a restaurant, but it certainly was excellent and memorable. The ambience, friendly attention of the staff (despite reduced skills in English) and food were excellent. This is a restaurant for adults who appreciate fine dining; the presence of kids looking for pizza or whatever could... More

Great place, we had the seats overlooking the kitchen. Chef really knew what he was doing. Good value for Kyoto. We had delicious gulash and a dish with slices of beef with rucola and parmezan. Even got an appetizer as a surprise. Although staff did not understand English very well they were really nice.

We recently stayed in an apartment just a few blocks away from Misato. We had read it was an old machiya, or tea house, that was converted to a modern business. The place is wonderful. On a Thursday night, they were not very busy, and immediately welcomed us in. The service and the food was wonderful. It started with a... More

We walked all the day through Kyoto and desired to eat an Italian fusion food. We walked with our two children 45 minutes to go to this restaurant. At our arrival there were 2 empty tables but none for us.... Our kids were not welcome. So chocking!!!! So no idea if it's good or not but sure if you come,... More

Staying in Shimogyo-ku

Neighbourhood Profile
Shimogyo-ku is centered around the busy train hub, Kyoto Station. A nexus for commerce, shopping, dining, and hotels, the Shimogyo-ku area is infused with tourists and local business travelers, making it a competitive location for ever-new commercial structures. The shops and cafes here are chic and trendy, as a result, with many recognizable chains. Commuters flood the Shimogyo-ku area twice a day, and with Kyoto Station itself being a modern mega-complex and an architectural marvel, this neighborhood is one of the most contemporary and energetic areas that the city has to offer. Buildings here look futuristic, and huge department stores, shopping arcades, and public meeting spaces provide every possible convenience. It is also nearly the only place in Kyoto where rooftop dining and socializing is available, completing its modern tone.
