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.

I have been this evening with my family here and it was simply AMAZING! You should try it!
The pizzaiolo is super professional and he creates pizzas like in Napoli. They use just food from Italy (mozzarella di bufala, pomodori etc.).
They are incredibile good! I has been an amazing experience! Love it!

Exceptional. This is a restaurant totally dedicated to its craft. We started with the home made pickles and despite not a huge pickled fan, I devoured my serve. We then had the best Italian sausages I've had outside Italy. The pizzas we ordered for our mains were simply amazing.

The meal was capped off by an engaging owner who offered us great local tips. Highly recommended.

Thank you very much for recommending and reviewing us.
Most of the ingridients used in pizza are imported from Italy. Especially ,
mozzarella di bufala is from near Naples. We will continue our efforts to cook pizza like the real home from now on.
Enjoy your trip in japan.
