When Nicoletta was a little girl, her mother, Olga, abandoned her and ran off to Rome to remarry. Now, 15 years later and a young woman, she travels to Rome with the intention of ruining her mother's life. She tracks Olga down to a restaurant called Casetta dell'Orso, but the second Nicoletta steps through its door, everything changes. It's a peculiar place staffed entirely by mature gentlemen wearing spectacles, and like their clientele, she is helpless against their wise smiles and warm voices. Before Nicoletta realizes it, her plans for vengeance start to fade, and she's swept up in the sweet romance of everyday Italian life.

At first, I thought this was gonna be boring, but after watching it, I fell in love with the characters, though I think I'm probably a bit too young to understand some of their motives. (May have spoilers involved)

Story: The story is in the summary already, but I think if you want to see the lives of couples, and people unfold in anime, I think you'd enjoy it. It reminds me of teledramas, but it's interesting and surprising at times. It's a very fun yet slow-paced slice of life anime, that doesn't really fall within the high school anime cliches. There's also drama but most ...
