Recently, I haven’t eaten Italian … I thought suddenly that I should eat lightly at the end of work and go home … Get off at Shijo Omiya, where there wasn’t much connection so far, and ask Google Maps … there was an Italian restaurant right in front of you. That is the “Osteria Ozaki” that I will introduce this time…
Osteria Ozaki | Homemade pasta is fulfilling! Easy Italian in Kyoto and Shijo Omiya, convenient for meeting
Go up the stairs and enter the shop on the second floor. The visitor was sparse because it was a late-night visit, but there was also an atmosphere that seems to be able to eat comfortably.
There are eight island-type table seats in the center, and a total of six table seats for two to four people surrounding it. The large glass windows are especially characteristic, and they are located just above the rotary at Hankyu Omiya Station.
It’s not a stylish view, but it’s a great place to meet up with friends and acquaintances. It is easy to imagine a young woman finding a friend standing in Rotary and ringing her cell phone and beckoning, “Here, this!”
By the way, I look at the menu with no prior knowledge because I was random and chose a shop. Frankly, there is no impression that “the menu is abundant”, but I feel that pasta seems to be quite confident.
After thinking about 5 minutes, I decided to order these three dishes: appetizer “bruschetta with heaped tomatoes”, pasta “arabianta sauce with octopus”, and “mainly grilled Australian lamb with herbs”.
Pasta and pizza are homemade, and you can choose from 6 types of noodles: spaghetti, linguine, tagliatelle, rigatoni, conchiglie, and fusilli. It seems that you can enjoy different textures by combining the same sauce with different pasta.

Bruschetta with heaped tomatoes: the contrast between savory roasted French bread and cold tomatoes and the garlic flavor add to the appetite
Let’s start with the dishes we ordered this time. First of all, bruschetta of heaping tomatoes of appetizer (price 560 yen + tax) …
Bruschetta is one of the Italian snacks. It is made by baking sliced bread, rubbing garlic on the surface, and topping it. The bruschetta I ordered this time has chopped tomatoes mixed with olive oil as a topping.
As you gabble, the flavors of olive oil and garlic spread throughout your mouth, following the warm French bread’s temperature and crispy texture. The contrast between cold tomatoes and warm bread is also exciting.
Octopus Arabia Sauce: Sticky Homemade Noodles with Octopus Shredded …
The next thing that came was spaghetti with arabia sauce (price 1365 yen + tax). After ordering, I regret that the tomato suffered. If you come without a thorough plan, this is often the case …
Thick tomatoes, red pepper, garlic spicy sauce and octopus rocky scent add a touch of spiciness to the pasta.
Pasta is thick spaghetti, and noodles boiled in al dente have a single core in the center of the chewy texture. The octopus chopped into pieces makes pasta more voluminous than it looks.
Grilled Australian lamb with herbs: bone-in meat filled with mutton flavor and umami. Enjoy with mustard and lemon juice.
And here is the main dish “Australia lamb with herbs (price 980 yen + tax)” …
A medium rare baked lamb with eggplant, Manganji pepper, potatoes and herbs.
The lamb is firm and crunchy, full of lamb’s unique aroma and umami. The extra fat is well drained, so you can eat up to the fat part normally, but if you add mustard or lemon juice you can refresh it further. That’s a good deal for 980 yen. That said, the sheep’s unique flavor remains, so if you don’t like the smell, whatever you do, it’s hard …
