Trattoria Minoura is a small restaurant near Kodai-ji Temple and Yasaka Jinja Shrine. In Kyoto, Machi-ya type restaurants like this are renovated from traditional houses into modern tasteful restaurants and cafes. Trattoria Minoura’s weekday lunch set (1500 yen) is quite reasonable and tasted pretty good. It includes a main pasta dish with a small salad and bread. Drinks and desert are extra. Opened at 11:30 AM to 2:00 PM for lunch, 5:30 PM to 9:00 PM for dinner. Closed Tuesdays.
