It was movie day for us in Kichijoji so where to have lunch... the first time I didn't check my favorite foodie ranking website www.tabelog.com for a place in advance. Mari suggested I should be a bit more willing to randomly try new spots...
Mari tried La Creatura's pasta years back so we decided on this spot. It was nearly 90% women... a good sign that the food is good. Interior was very comfortable. Oh we got two types of bread, green tea and another one... both very chewy.
Light salad with Japanese dressing.
Mari's simple pasta was great... enough sauce to dip the bread into afterwards. This lunch set came with drink and salad.
I ordered the 4-cheeses pizza. Its on a very light crust so if you don't want a heavy meal then this is a good choice. For the pizza lunch they will charge you an additional 200yen or drink and salad.
Not sure why this place is called La Creatura... does it sound Italian?
Overall a good spot with a 3.38 ranking on the foodie website. But I think we both agreed that the pasta selection was better than the pizza's.
