I so thought I was walking into highly ranked Girasole but mistakenly stepped into Jyon Nobi! Oh no...
Pasta menu starts at 780yen... Lunch only includes the main dish, mini-salad and water. No cappuccino, no after lunch dessert, no extras...
All you can eat tiny Focaccia bread.
Little balls covered in roasted soybean flower
Sesame seeds baked into a very chewy bread.
Interior was cozy with table seating for 2, 4 and one semi-private booth.
Typical mini salad arrived.
I'm a huge fan of penne arrabiata so just had to get the garlic and spicy red pepper tomato pasta.
I love garlic but this was so overwhelming... thank goodness this was just lunch with a friend. Very flavorful deep rich taste... I don't eat Pasta often as I know the cost is so very little.
Friend went for the 980yen shrimp and clam in a cream sauce.
With the ranking at a very lowly 3.02 points on Tabelog I doubt I will ever return. With a can 90yen can of imported Italian tomato sauce, 50yen worth of pasta noodles and a garlic clove I would rather just make this at home.
The Nihon University College of Art is holding an exhibition of its graduating students nearby.
And I leave you with a beautiful Nissan R35 GT-R.
