Not very friendly for foreigners. Let us wait over 30mins for a beer. Ambience and the beer selection was ok.

Nice place to have a quick lunch while visiting Nara. Pizza is good but really small, so maybe you need 2 to make a standard Italian one, but it is not bad. Margherita is pretty good, drinks too. They also sell few bio products. Price...More
