Farm Vegico Basil, Parmesan, Garlic and Pine Nut Paste Sauce is a very refreshing taste. On the other hand, there is also a firm body due to parmesan and garlic.

This is the most delicious pasta in Japan. When you come to Kochi, you should definitely eat!
In addition to pasta, Bar Baffone also serves delicious cheese. There is a menu called “Assorted Fresh Cheese” in Antipasto (appetizer).

Bar Baffone serves about eight kinds of cheeses one by one if you want. It is expensive at 1800 yen, but the quality of cheese is high anyway! The cheese is absolutely different from the cheese sold at supermarket or other restaurant.
There are many types of cheeses, not only common ones such as Camembert and blue cheese, but also creamy cheeses and sweetened cheeses.
The cheese changes every day, and so you can look forward to what kind of cheese is served.
