Primo Piatto: "Italian Food in Ise (after you try the Akafuku)" Ise Restaurant Tip by japandan
Ise Restaurants: 10 reviews and 13 photos
There are two Italian places on the opposite side of Ise-shi station from the Geku shrine buildings. (both on the same street as Hoshidekan, and not far away from it: http://welcome.kankomie.or.jp/english/search/spot.php?act=dtl&id=83)
The further one, focused on seafood, is pretty pricey for Japan, and quite pricey for the area. But Primo Piatto had great food at a good price (might get above $20/person if you go all out, but probably on average you'll pay around $15)
If you can read Japanese, here's a good review of the place: http://www.qn-net.jp/wordpress2/?p=1887
The vanilla cake is also good.
Favorite Dish: All of the pasta dishes are great, because the pasta's homemade. I had the asparagus and sausage in alfredo sauce as part of a set meal, and I would recommend getting one of those.
In fact, I would recommend pretty much anything on the menu except the bread, which is, unfortunately, the soft, fluffy nothing white bread (with a few raisins even, what were they thinking?) that is ubiquitous in Japan.
Address: Mie ken, Ise-shi, Kawasaki 2-10-4
Price Comparison: less expensive than average
Directions: Quite close to Hoshidekan: http://welcome.kankomie.or.jp/english/search/spot.php?act=dtl&id=83
