Cucina BERRETTO Italiana

Casual Italian dining on the top floor of the Fukuya department store in front of Hiroshima Station.

The food won’t win any awards, but they have a pretty good selection of stone oven pizza, pasta, fish and meat mains as well as some gratin and risotto dishes and soups.

Our kids enjoyed the thin crust Napoli style pizza and I was pleasantly surpised by the Hiroshima-na (small loose-leaf Chinese cabbage) Risotto.  There are lots of big windows, however, although you have a view over the rail station and out to the mountains, the view isn’t particularly inspiring (I prefer the view from the other side of the building over the river).

All in all, not a bad option if you are looking for a reasonably priced Italian meal before jumping on a train, especially if you have kids in tow.

    The food is good enough especially when compared to the nearby food court.
