My mother and I visited this restaurant based on the reviews I read on Tripadvisor. The world's greatest pizza.....well, we went with the lunch set menu. Pizza was more of one topping without any cheesiness. For our taste, it was too bland and simple. Not sure if we wanted to enjoy pizza with good amount of topics and much more... More

The restaurant is located inside a shabby shopping gallery, its interiors are cheaply decorated, a bit tacky. The food is quite OK though, nothing earth-shattering but decent. Friendly service. Worth a visit if you are looking for an Italian pizzeria in the area.

... pizza here was great! I'm not an expert in neapolitan pizza (there's a substantial difference between it and the standard pizza) but I can easily say it was delicious, judging by the ingredients used and the cooking process. We also had a bruschetta, very simple but very tasty (again, great olive oil). The only strange thing is the taste... More

We went based on my search in Tripadvisor. Atmosphere took us to the Italy. We tried both pizza and pasta. All were very delicious. Of course we tasted better ones in Italy but this place is the best in Japan. Prices are also affordable.

It was wonderful to experience wood oven baked italian style pizza all the way in Japan. The cooks have a menu offering several different pizzas- all of which are quite affordable with several great options for under 1,000 yen. One pizza is roughly the size of a large plate ,maybe 11-12 inches in diameter. I ordered the Margherita which was... More

This restaurant is made up of two part, one part for casual dining (where you have to order at the counter) and the other for set meal dining (you will get service, but the catch is you have to order their set menu). Overall, I felt that the pizzas here were of great value. I would recommend buying the magherita... More

Next door is a cafe, selling the same thing as the restaurant. Price is reasonable. I guess the owner is from Napoli cos there are lots of Napoli soccer posters. Queue... More

It seems incredible, but in Japan you can eat a real Neapolitan pizza at affordable prices in a typical Italian, or it is better to say Neapolitan, restaurant. There are also waiters who speak some Italian and make the atmosphere even more surreal but incredibly familiar. Thanks for the pizza and for your kindness and sympathy.
