Casual trattoria near Yushima-Tenjin Shrine

At a place of one minute distance from the Yushima-Tenjin Shrine(湯島天神), God of learning, there is a trattoria named "Cucina Italiana HARU (クッチーナ イタリアーナ ハル)." As HARU looks to a very small street, I haven't noticed until now. Though HARU is run by only a chef and his wife (or girl friend), all the tables were occupied and busy at lunch.
Cucina Italiana HARU
Terrine and focaccia 
Peperoncino pasta with okra
Conchigliette with tomato sauce
Grilled chicken
Panna Cotta
The set meal we ordered was JPY2,500 including a starter, a pasta, a main dish, a dessert and coffee.  As choice of menu is not so varied at lunch, the service was more quickly than I had expected. Dishes were cooked simple. Dynamic taste was just as "men's cuisine."  Different from sophisticated dishes, but it was good.  But considering cost-effectiveness, the price setting was a bit high for the set meal. If you order a pasta set at JPY1,000, you might be more satisfied. My rating is 2.6 out of 5. Gochiso-samadeshita!
