My girlfriend and I love Italian food. Everywhere we go in the world we try the best Italian food we can find. Addu mamma was up to anything we could have hoped for.
Mamma - the japanese owner of the restaurant - goes every morning at Tsukiji market, makes sure to bring only the freshest ingredients of the day and writes up her menu accordingly.
So don't expect to necessarily find exactly what you have in mind but instead, let yourself be guided by the inspiration of Mamma, who by the way speaks perfect Italian.
The restaurant is small and the atmosphere very cosy. Davide - the Italian waiter - will serve you the best olive oil and wine from his country. Everything about this trattoria is generous and delightful. A little haven of Italy in a backstreet of busy Shibuya.
On the day of our visit, we enjoyed a delightful mixed antipasti set including Japanese fish carpaccio, a great Sangiovese wine, pasta all'amatriciana (best ever tasted) and pasta mare e monti (including shitake mushroom!). Yes, Mamma is able to include some typical Japanese ingredients in her cuisine. A must go!
One way to find the retaurant: get of at Shibuya east exist and walk toward Omote Sando. Addu Mamma will be on your right in a small parallel street.
Grazie Mamma !
