I eat there almost every week. The food is delicious, the team very friendly and the atmosphere perfect. I never checked the menu and rely on the shop manager to get his best recommendation of the day. This is not a pizzeria, but a pasta restaurant. They do catering too and it is also delicious. For lunch count between 1,200... More

Elio Forneria is a smaller and cheaper offshoot of the expensive Elio Locanda restaurant elsewhere in the Hanzomon district of Tokyo. The atmosphere here is informal, cheerful and rather cramped. The unexciting menu sticks to the standard popular Italian repertoire of pasta, pizza and some meat dishes. The quality is acceptable but does not bear comparison with a good Italian... More

Great italian quality (food and wine). The chef took the time to explain the servings; his passion and pleasure in regard to his restaurant / the food is obvious when meeting him. Satisfied customers are the highest priority of the Chef - and he also enables this. Definetly recommend this place to anybody looking for an alternative to Japanese food

A great little restaurant located just off Hanzomon station. Popular and often busy at lunchtime (there are only probably eight tables) - the friendly staff headed by smiley Mr Watanabe serve an excellent, tasty lunch menu in two sizes, with great ingredients and lots of flavour. Good for a casual drop in or (for small groups) entertaining.

On the very last evening of our one year round the world trip we accidentally stumbled into this little restaurant located right next to our hotel. But what can I say! It turned out to be one of the most amazing restaurants that we visited during the last year (and there have been many). The food was just great the... More

This restaurant is a mast-visit place for me evey time I go back to Tokyo. During my 10 day business trip in the begining of this month, I had dinner there 3 times! The great thing is, they can make pretty much any italian food you order (except for pizza). Creative and unique as well as authentic starters make u... More

Neighborhood Profile
Yotsuya / Iidabashi
Yotsuya and Iidabashi are areas that developed around the outer moat of the Imperial palace. Nearby in Kagurazaka, there is an old red-light district with a photogenic feel evocative of the ambiance of old Tokyo. Narrow paths with stone paving remain to this day, and there are long-standing restaurants with geishas and quaint old cafes in townhouse buildings.
