The cafe has two seating areas, while the front of the cafe exudes a distinctive retro Japanese style, the rear part undergoes a complete transformation into a purely Italian interior. Here, you'll find Italian stucco, lofty ceilings, and sturdy hardwood furniture that contribute to the establishment's rustic ambiance.

京都郊外、阪急京都線洛西口駅から歩いてすぐのところに、素敵なカフェ「Otte」『オッテ』があります。 元農具小屋を利用して、ラスティックなイタリア風のカフェに生まれ変わりました。 料理とイタリアの両方に情熱を持ったフレンドリーな夫婦によって営まれているカフェは、2023年4月16日にオープンしました。


建物を見た瞬間、オッテの魅力ですぐに胸がキュン!外観は厨子二階の様式で、伝統的な和瓦に覆われた屋根で主に和風のスタイルですが、1階は一部がリノベーションされて、テラス席とキッチンエリアがイタリア風のレンガ壁で装飾されており、イタリアの雰囲気が出てます。店内もリノベーションされていますが、土壁、木製の骨組み、小屋の 2 階、工具や狭い木製のはしごなど、元の要素がほとんどそのまま残されています。店内は2つのエリアに分かれており、手前のエリアはレトロな和風の雰囲気も残っていますが、奥のエリアは完全にイタリアのインテリアに一変します。 ここでは、イタリアの漆喰、高い天井、無垢材の家具がラスティックな雰囲気で、まるで日本からイタリアにワープしたような気分になります。 特に、隅にあるアーチ型の窓がイタリアの雰囲気を醸し出し、窓からの景色はイタリア風の庭園の絵のように美しいです。 典型的なイタリアの漆喰、厳選されたイタリア風の食器、オリジナルマグカップ、おいしいメニューまで、Otteはイタリアの味と美学に敬意を表しています。

Otteのメニューには、エスプレッソやアメリカーノ、アイスカフェラテやカプチーノまで、さまざまな飲み物が揃っています。 紅茶が好きな方にはさまざまなオプションもあり、オーガニック ベルガモット ソーダや爽やかな味わいのシチリア オレンジ ジュースもあります。お酒が好きな方には、イタリアのビールとワインでイタリアを味わうこともできます。

しかし、Otteの自家製ピザとイタリアンドルチェが一番魅力的です。 ティラミス、カンノーリ、ココナッツ ケーキ、リコッタ ケーキ、ブロンテ産ピスタチオのジェラートなどのおいしいスイーツがあります。 さらに、オッテでは、焼き菓子とオッテのブレンドコーヒー豆も販売しています。ピザは本格的なピザ窯で薪を使って焼き上げられるピザは、新鮮な食材を使用しており、Rosso「赤」、Bianco「白」、Beige「ベージュ」と季節限定の4種類から選ぶことが出来ます。その日によって選べる種類が異なるようなので、何があるかはお楽しみ。一枚食べ終えると何枚も食べたくなる美味しいです。
