Good size for groups, bad system for groups
We've been a few times to this restaurant at the top of Omote Sando, but this past weekend was the first time there was such a big group of us. The space is good for a group, but their pricing system isn't.
Most of our group ordered the pasta lunch set which is advertised as 1,500 per person, but there are hidden costs. The bill was way off what we had budgeted for, even with taking into account the extra cost for alcohol. The staff explained that some of the pasta dishes we ordered cost extra. This was not clearly marked on the menu and that is what caused the confusion. They also do not allow people pay individually, which isn't ideal for a group of more than 15 which is what we were. In saying all that, the food is really delicious and the portions are very generous. The set comes with bread, a salad and a hot beverage or you can pay 300 yen extra for wine. It is very good value for money for this part of Tokyo.
It is open from 11.30 am to 2 am seven days a week. It is a popular spot so I advise making a reservation. There are stairs down to the restaurant and they request you fold up any strollers or buggies and store then near the bottom of the stairs. Its a no smoking restaurant, but they have a smoking room outside.
