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

If you are looking for a fantastic dining experience this is THE place to go, without question. When you dine at a place like this it's about the total experience not just the food. The ambiance, the food, the presentation and especially the service (ask for Luca) make your dining experience simply amazing! My fellow Americans, if you are looking... More

I went to La Bisboccia after having read the rave reviews on TripAdvisor and knowing that Tokyo has its fair share of quality Italian restaurants. I was extremely disappointed. The walls are covered with scribbles, like in a public bathroom - and this actually speaks to the quality of the experience you can expect to have at La Bisboccia. To... More

BAD!!!!Me and my boyfriend was looking forward to a nice italian meal based on high ratings on tripadvisor, boy were we wrong! The location was ok, but not fine dining quality, bit too large rooms and feeling of tourist trappy. Service and waiters ok, but feeling they were rushing things, not really acknowledging you. But my main complaint and my... 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.
