This is the first Kansai branch of an excellent Ginza Italian place known for its first-class food and wine. The dining space is tastefully and conservatively appointed, with well-separated tables for a bit of privacy. The wine list is unusual in that most bottles are priced at either Y6500 or Y8500 (although there's also a reserve list of "Super Tuscan" wines for those special occasions). Unfortunately there's no a la carte menu, only prix-fixe (from Y4500 in the evening, Y2000 at lunch).
