Very nice and relaxed Italian restaurant. Excellent food. Great service. Located opposite the entrance of the Four Seasons Hotel. We have been in many fine Italian restaurants in Italy, France, The Netherlands and in New York. This fine Italian Restaurant in Kyoto can easily compete with the quality of these restaurants, a very pleasant surprise!

We ordered a set menu and everything was perfect. You must try this restaurant. It is owned and run for now more than 20 years by this Japanese gentleman who actually cooks the pizza at the brick oven himself. Their pizza is one of the best, comparable even to pizza in Sicily.

This restaurant has a trattoria atmosphere and the food is really good. The wood burning pizza oven is a real asset; it does only two pizzas at a time but they are worth waiting for. The rest of the menu was also thoroughly enjoyable.

An absolute MUST. Excellent food (we had both the pizza and pasta) and wonderful, friendly staff. They speak excellent English, as well, and are very attentive. We did not need reservations either time (Early September, around 6:30 pm). Seating is rather limited so you may want reservations if you're visiting peak season. Not the cheapest food around but better even... More

The restaurant is very convenient to the Hyatt Regency Kyoto (about a 5 minute walk). The staff speaks excellent English, and the food is delicious. The pizza is Neapolitan style and tastes as good as any I've had in Italy. It was so good we are here twice during our 4 night stay in Kyoto.

Not cheap, but very tasty. My girls needed a break from Japanese cuisine before continuing on and this satisfied them.

From the moment we walked in, the staff was attentive and friendly. Reservations were made in advance. English menu available. Wood fire pizza oven and cozy ambiance. We enjoyed the wood fire pizza, bread, and many desserts! The pizza chef made a special treat just for our 4 year old son. We were very impressed with the restaurant and was... More

What an excellent small restaurant. We were staying at the Hyatt and didn't want to eat in the hotel so this sounded ideal and just 5 minutes walk away. Charming attentive service by the good looking trim young men! I had the grilled seasonal vegetables and my husband the tripe, each to their own! Main courses were a really tender... More

We visited Il Pappalardo twice whilst in Kyoto and we highly recommend it. We had been disappointed by the Italian restaurant in the nearby Hyatt but Il Pappalardo delivered better quality food, friendlier staff and more value for money. We spoke a tiny amount of Japanese and the staff really appreciated that we were trying to learn some of their... More
