After eating a lot of Japanese food, we wanted a pizza. And we could not be more disappointed. What we received was not something I would call a pizza. Do not go here if you want Italian food.

VERY good pizza, best we had in Japan. On the 11th floor of the Kyoto Station. Just a little place, and it took a little while for our pizzas to come out, they make them each fresh. very good! Also beer and wine.

Had the shell fish pasta in tomato sauce. Tasty and added tobacco for some spice. Average food but it's Italian in Japan so pretty standard. Good service.

Seemed promising as it was pretty busy inside, but it was clear that some tables were more heavily waited upon than others. Dishes came more than 15 minutes apart from each other and it was challenging to flag down a waitress for water. Head waiter...More

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
