About us

In October 2019, Italian Restaurant Bechee!? was opened in Yamaguchi City.

We fell in love with the Odono area of Yamaguchi City even though we are from outside the city.
We met a beautiful old house.
Our desire to share the taste of our hometown, Spoleto, has come true.

Bechee!? means “I’ll get by” in the Spoleto dialect.
Here is a Little Italy…
We are waiting for your visit.
