It cheered us up on a cold, rainy evening, to sit next to a roaring pizza oven in a cosy, friendly pizzaria - we could easily imagine we were in a warm, sunny part of Naples.

The pizzas were delicious, thin and crispy with authentic Italian ingredients.

Highly recommended.

Came here with low expectations. First off, the place is tiny. Really only two tables and 6 bar seat spaces. But wait if you have to. I hade the Caesar salad (really delicious) and the pan sautéed chicken with vegetables. People around me having pizza seemed delighted. Wood-fired oven is the center of attention and produces wonderful pies.

This is a cozy restaurant with a bar and a few tables to sit at, while the owner makes masterful, authentic Neapolitan pizzas with fresh and delicious ingredients, one at a time. Each pizza comes out of his oven perfectly cooked, a rare find anywhere, but truly special in this mountain town in central Japan. Reservations are a good idea during busy times of the year. This is a special experience that should not be missed! Heartily recommended!

What a great find tonight when we entered the restaurant on a cold wet evening to be greeted by the warmth of the glowing pizza oven, only surpassed by the warmth of the owners/managers. We both had pizza and wow, it doesn’t get better with many of the ingredients coming in from Italy, no wonder it tasted so ‘Italian.’ A great selection of wines, beers and soft drinks, even a zero alcohol Italian beer which went down a treat. I recommend this place for the real taste of Italy in Japan.

We love Japan, but we were transported to Napoli in this wonderful pizzeria! We were welcomed by the amazing pizzaiolo, the darling waitress, and the friendly locals. Fantastic pizza and cozy atmosphere. It was great fun to sit at the bar and watch the pizzas being created and baked in the wood-fire oven. A lovely evening, a memorable experience. Absolutely authentic and delicious.
