OMOTESANDO: IL PACIOCCONE イル・パッチォコーネ 1,000yen Italian Lunch!

Italian in Tokyo always seems to exceed 10,000 yen for two and with a little wine and dessert it can easily reach 15,000yen.  I enjoy the quality but the volume of food can be much less that what most expect in the US. Sooooo what to do if you want Italian with the family on a budget?  EASY! Go for Lunch!!

Japanese restaurants use the 1,000yen lunch price point to lure in new customers to the shop with hopes they will return for dinner someday.  

Started with a little fresh bread. (Can ask for seconds).

I didn't take a picture of the menu (at least 15 different lunch selections for 1,000yen) but you can see the specials in my Video.  We decided to share a pasta and pizza.  There were so many toppings on the Pizza!  Normally pizza spots will only serve Marinara or Margherita but this restaurant was very generous with its toppings.

Tasted like they froze an orange and later used a blender to create this icy dessert. Excellent!

You can select Coffee/Tea (Hot/Iced) for the 1,000yen lunch plan.

The service was perfect.  Waiter noticed we left one slice of Pizza and offered to wrap it up.

Absolutely recommend this place for lunch and even dinner.  Food, service and atmosphere (with Italian BGM) was really nice.  I'll definitely go back again.
