Best Italian in tokyo

This is the second time I have been and I went with work colleagues who also swear this is the best Italian in Tokyo. When you enter you feel as though you have transformed into a different world, which feels like a cozy atmosphere. We ordered a bunch of appetisers to share, a fish carpaccio, ham... read more

Went to La Bisboccia with friends on a Saturday night in July 2015 and enjoyed an absolutely outstanding meal. My first impression was that the restaurant struck a good balance between being an attractive space, without being too formal. The entrance from the outside had a stone circular facade. Inside it had a rustic feel with wooden furniture and with... More

This is a fun Italian Restaurant in the Shibuya section of Tokyo. The food is good and some of the waiters are Italian. After eating a lot of Japanese food this was a great respite. Nice atmosphere and a very enjoyable evening. We were guests so I have no idea of the price.

This was my third meal in La Bisboccia, and I now make it a rule to visit whenever I am in Tokyo. It is simply one of the best Italian restaurants I have been to anywhere in the world (including Italy!). The service is excellent, attentive, informative, and authentic Italian. The food is delicious, and it is impossible to resist... More

I have just been to La Bisboccia with a Group of colleagues and business partners. The place looks immediately genuine and warm. We were served by a very polite Italian who served us aperitivo, suggested a mix appetizer, we went then for a trio of pastas and concluded with dessert and grappa. Beautiful wine. As an Italian travelling around the... More

My wife and I have eaten here twice. Once in May 2014 and then again in January 2015. This place's food is absolutely amazing. The service was a lot better the first time, but that may have been because we didn't know what to expect. The server that looks like Joe Pesci is awesome! Some of the servers are Italian... More

I visited Japan several times. I'm not a seafood nor pork lover, so I struggled to find food that I enjoyed. Once my boyfriend at the time took me to this place, I was hooked! La Bisboccia had the best spaghetti I have ever had...anywhere! The atmosphere was nice and they were able to sit large groups fairly quickly. I... More

Last time I went there was probably in Oct 2012 but the experience was so unforgettable that I had to write a review. It is by far the best Italian restaurant I have been in Japan, and there are a lot, really a lot of Italian restaurants in Japan. So if you want a wonderful experience, you won't regret it.... More

Where do people go for Italian if they live in Tokyo? My trusted friend suggested La Bisboccia, an establishment certified by Italy (actually Italian government) as "Autentico Ristorante" (Authentic Restaurant). Wow! I didn't know the Italian government did that. The exterior is a semicircular cement structure with medium size wood framed windows covered by curtains- looks a bit "cold". The... More

Staying in Shinagawa / Gotanda

Neighborhood Profile
Shinagawa / Gotanda
In Shinagawa, an office district shares space with luxury residential buildings and the scene is constantly changing with rapid development. Ikedayama park and Togoshi park are great places to see beautiful traditional Japanese gardens with ponds, as well as enjoy the changing seasons. Shinagawa was a post and a port town during the Edo era and the lavish old Shinto shrines and Buddhist temples at Shinagawa and Ebara are very popular. It's a great place to get in touch with the old Edo atmosphere on a pleasure boat cruising along the canal. The neighboring area around Gotanda station is a study in modern contrasts filled with unique restaurants and a lively nightlife.
