After a couple of weeks in Japan and a long day on my feet, I wanted to relax and have a pizza. Found Il Barocco not far from Ginza but sort of under the tracks with a lot of other interesting restaurants. Just had a beer and mushroom pizza.

Located on a side street near Ebisu Station, I was surprised to discover that this small charming restaurant served great food in large helpings for a reasonable price. The place was humming when we went there on a Wednesday, so obviously the Japanese know about it. The kitchen is open to the dining area, rustic atmosphere, service is very friendly.... More
