Since my very first visit to Ura-Cona I have always raved about it to my friends and even taken a few dates there... I mean the service and quality of pizza WAS dead on the best of all the Cona's in Tokyo. So on this day my buddy Yas (Japanese guy) had some special guests from Hawaii and he wanted to hit the place up.
We entered about 6:45pm and picked out a bottle of wine... If you enter before 7pm you can get the 1,000yen special (drink, appetizer, pizza and no entrance charge). Yas and I went with this deal and the...
Pâté arrived within minutes of our order...
... and so 20 30 40 minutes pass and the pizza we ordered failed to arrive. At the time there were only 2 couples in the shop and it normally takes about 2-3 minutes to make one of these thin crust pizza's.
So asked one of the waitresses if she could check on the pizza for us... no smile, no confirmation with the chef, just full of attitude responding that we had to wait our turn... hold up... then another 10 minutes pass and we ask again... more attitude. This type of girl is someone you rarely find in any Japanese restaurant... just extremely negative. Her hands were badly dry with cracks covered in band-aids. I can only assume things have not gone well for her in general. OK! Thats my honest rant!
Yas ordered the Tuna salad... avoid this... who wants to eat canned tuna on a bed of salad?
Overall the female staff this night was just not good... the Pizza's lacked any kind of volume on their topping and the appearance/quality vs my other visits was mediocre at best.
I can no longer say that this is my Favorite branch of the Cona Pizzeria franchise... the new champ goes to Ikebukuro Cona with amazing service and top notch pizza's that once resided at UraCona. Ooohhh... as I write this I am so sad... the current female staff just gets me down... Anyways! Perhaps in few months time the part-timer's will rotate out and this review will change. Aloha!
