Lorenzo Orsini had always intended to open a restaurant with his half-brother Gigi, but it was only when his wife, Olga, fell ill that the Casetta Dell’orso became the establishment that it is now. In order to please his overworked wife, Lorenzo decided to staff the restaurant to her tastes and he began to hire only bespectacled elder gentlemen. From the gentle Claudio and flirtatious Vito, to gruff widower Luciano and fiery Teo, the diverse personalities of the employees have made the restaurant an instant success. Each member of staff has his own story to tell, and as their lives intertwine with that of their customers, it’s clear the Casetta Dell’orso is far more than just another quaint little restaurant.

Antique Bakery

Antique Bakery
  • Vol: 4; Ch: 19
  • 2000

Tachibana is an heir to a huge and successful corporation. He can speak five languages, play musical instruments, and has even passed the bar exam, so naturally he's now... running a bakery?! At the Antique Bakery, Ono, known as the ‘Gay of demonic charm' is serves as the head patissier; ex-boxing pro Eiji works as Ono's apprentice; and Tachibana's bumbling henchman and shadow, Chikage, helps out to the best of his rather limited abilities. As a carefree ladies man, Tachibana is always ready to turn on the charm if it means getting a sale, though aside from his love of women, no one really knows why the grandson of a successful businessman would suddenly decide to open a bakery. Could a traumatic event in Tachibana's past have anything to do with why he set up shop?

Both of these manga series revolve around a food establishment, and both are slice of life. While the bakery in Antique Bakery and the restaurant in Gente are central to the plot, both of these manga focus more on the individual lives of its staff. If you enjoyed one, you may want to check out the other.
