From Viz:

At the age of 21, Nicoletta travels to Rome to find her mother, Olga, who abandoned her long ago. Nicoletta finds her at Casetta dell'Orso, a charming little restaurant owned by Olga's husband. The staff of bespectacled gentlemen welcomes Nicoletta warmly, but Olga's reception is not so pleasant. Olga has never told her husband that she ever had children--and he must never know.

In exchange for Nicoletta's playing "the daughter of an old friend," Olga offers Nicoletta a place to live and an apprenticeship at the restaurant. Nicoletta fits in well among the unique personalities at Casetta dell'Orso. She gets along particularly well with the kindly headwaiter, Claudio, a divorced man who, after years, has still never taken off his wedding ring. As Nicoletta's feelings for Claudio become complicated, she finds a sympathetic ear in Olga, leading the estranged pair to form a friendship neither expected. But as they grow closer, the pressure exerted by the secret they share becomes too much to bear.

I don't know how I feel about this one. Personally I like that it's about older people, especially the men, but how the relationships are carried out just seem so odd and far from reality. I think if the people (or at least the main character) in this story acted this way in reality, they wouldn't be let off for less than a restraining order. By the end of the second chapter I was just sitting in front of my computer screen completely nonplussed. I might try the anime since there is so little manga scanlated, but I'm wary.

actually, in this manga all sexual fetishes of 30years women are gathered together. Harem of refined, well-groomed, bespectacled intelligent middle-aged men in old quiet Europe...what else to dream aboutconfused

Okay, I speak for the anime... and I liked it.

Of course the story's not perfect, but I like how we get glimpses into the lives of the people surrounding the restaurant. It moves at a nice pace, and frankly... I suddenly found myself developing a "father-complex" when Claudio came on screen. (drools) If the manga's art style scares you, I'd say, try the anime production. It's a lot softer on the eyes.

I'm working on translating this manga (for Ramsus-kun), and I must say I find the story quite cute and compelling. I like the art as well, though it can look a little creepy sometimes. I definitely look forward to reading more by this author!
