Visited denden Town and then decided to try this place based on the other reviews. No italian food at all and this restaurant has nothing to do in this ranking. A terrible place to be avoided!

Very nice little cosy place, some italian flavors made in Japanese way....Try the Tuna grilled with lemon just fantastic, the sushis, the chicken teriyaki or the pasta...everything is good. Place to go if you are around. Nice choice of wine.
