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.

I can confirm other reviews on this place: It is worth the effort for finding this place if you are in Nagoya: The food is EXCELLENT! We started with some delicious fried fish (calamary, sardines) and then had a superb pizza. This place is better than many pizzerias in Italy! Of course, the Japanese attention to detail is what makes... More

We didn't know this place was famous- our 11 year old liked the look of it and there were people lining up on the restaurant side before it opened. It turned out to be fully booked, but most of the same menu is available for counter orders in the cafe side. Quick service, good food, good prices.

The price is very cheap, lowe than Italy, i took the lunch menu' with a vegetable soup, a plate of starters as ham... More
