Walked past Hostaria Casa Bella on an empty stomach last week and noticed Penna Arrabiatta (my fav) and then spotted their 1,000yen Lasagna lunch for 500yen until the end of March! Had to return!
Nice counter eating with views of the top chef scolding a newbie chef... guess the new guy was a bit forgetful and clumsy.
On the walls were beautiful murals... reminded me of the Italian paintings at museums.
It was such a nice environment.
Home made hot breads... Basil and Tumeric breads.
Hot and chewy
Lasagna arrived and it was about the size of a iPhone. Sauce was very flavorful & thick, noodles were thing and a nice layer of cheese on top. I noticed the chef making a fresh batch of Lasagna.. my seat was directly in front of the kitchen oven.
Lunch comes with coffee, tea or espresso
Sugarville. Italian sugar!
Overall this restaurant would be perfect for a date...cozy, hidden away and the interior murals were fantastic. But the lunch came with water, 2 breads, lasagna and a drink... for 500yen a steal but for 1,000yen this will leave you a bit underwhelmed. But I'll be back for another 500yen lunch as the average price per person at dinner is 8,000yen.
Will leave you with a sweet BMW M6 coupe.
