And thus we come upon a low priced high cost performance Pizzeria in the burbs of bedtown Oizumi Gakuen... bingo!
What initially hit me was the immaculate clean interior, great decor and smiles all around from the staff.
Pizzas start at a very reasonable 500yen and there was a very nice variety when most Pizzerias offer very few standard selections.
Choice of Nama-beer or Moretti.
I was dining with a family of 4 and this is my portion of the salad... extremely fresh salad :)
Ordered pizza bread with a side of Olive oil dip.
600yen Margherita... A huge hit for my friends 3 year old son.
Pasta carbonara... perfectly creamy and the texture of the noodles tasted as if they were fresh vs dry the supermarket version I almost always buy.
The 700yen Siciliana Pizza with anchovies, olives, flat garlic, keppers, cheese and basil.
Overall this place was a hit. We all felt that once you enter the spot it felt like we were out of the suburbs and transported to a great little spot in central Tokyo. Service was so spot on and never did we have to raise our hands get the waiter/waitress's attention. The pizza's weren't the greatest but how can you go wrong in a city that easily charges 1,500-2,000yen for a dinner pizza. Kids love it and an atmosphere suited for a date at a reasonable price. I'll be back!
