Set at the end of a long line of take-out restaurants in the Porter Exchange building, this spot is always packed. The restaurant is somewhat small with communal tables and generally there is a wait for a seat. This Japanese restaurant serves a variety of noodle, beef and chicken dishes. Served in a broth that is wonderfully seasoned, the soba is excellent. The ginger nonfat yogurt is a tasty dessert and the green-tea cake is quite good. Alcohol is served. Does not accept credit cards; cash only.
I'm very impressed with the taste of their food! All the food served taste very authentic. Their teriyaki sauce is very special to Ittyo- not like any other restaurants'. (My favorite is Mackerel Teriyaki!) They have a lot of healthy food at very reasonable price. I'd totally recommend this place for everyday dining! Thumbs up!!
I started going to Ittyo my junior year of college when I attended school in the area. I would go there for lunch and I have always been pleased with their level of service and inexpensive lunch dishes. They also have lunch specials which are a bargain! I have been going there for over two years now and I can't get tired of it. If you're looking for good food at a good price look no further.
Six of us arrived early, just a few minutes after it opened. The waitress was friendly and got us settled immediately. The food came around 5-10 minutes after we ordered. The rice dishes, especially the chicken teriyaki one is totally worth your money! Many of their dishes come with miso soup. Mochi ice cream was also good, except they ran out of red bean flavored ones. But the delicious green tea and vanilla ones made up for it. The prices aren't expensive and the food is bound to fill your tummy. I think I'll go there again!
