Feel free to follow favy!

Napule

Tokyo has become a hot spot for excellent Neapolitan-style pizzas. There are several restaurants that have amassed rave reviews from pizza aficionados, and Napule is one of them. Their pizza is cooked the traditional Italian way, in a large firewood oven. You won't get enough of the thick, springy crust!

Also worth noting is that the interior of this restaurant is really pleasant because of the retro southern Italian design and the large windows that allow plenty of natural light to pour into the restaurant.

They have a ¥1,400 lunch set that includes a pizza, a salad and a coffee.

Antonio's

Antonio's is a restaurant of long-standing in the area. It's been loved by the locals since it opened in 1944. It's a well-rounded restaurant where you can have everything from delicious pizzas to pasta, meat dishes and classic Italian desserts.

For lunch, it can be relatively affordable at about ¥2,000 per person. For dinner, they have their popular, decadent Classic Course for ¥9,680 that you won't go wrong with for a special occasion.

The restaurant is located about a 10-minute walk from Omotesando Station.

IL PACIOCCONE CASEIFICIO

This is a pretty reasonably priced restaurant where you can enjoy some delicious oven-baked Roman-style pizzas, pasta dishes, antipasto and fish dishes from about ¥1,000 a plate.

They have some pasta lunch sets for just ¥1,000. If you go for dinner, you can also have some pretty nice course meals from ¥3,000.

They have vegetarian options.

The restaurant is located about a 9-minute walk from Omotesando Station.

Ristorante Hiro Aoyama

This restaurant might be the place to go if you're a meat-lover. Their 30-day aged beef cooked over firewood is one of their signature items. It's fragrant, delicious, and since the beef is beautifully marbled wagyu, it's also incredibly tender.

Although the restaurant is very high-end and chick, some lunch options are surprisingly affordable. You can have the five service lunch with pasta for ¥3,630.

Prisma

This Aoyama backstreet restaurant is very high-end. It's seclusive and intimate with enough seats to accommodate up to just 10 people. The high ceiling and spacious open kitchen create an elegant atmosphere.

The courses available for dinner change with the season. You basically have to choose your main dish and leave the rest to the chef. The cuisine is essentially Italian but your course is likely to include some quintessential Japanese delicacies such as uni (sea urchins) and wagyu beef. Everything is incredibly well presented on top of being delectable.

Feel free to ask for wine pairing recommendations.

Ristorante Hamasaki

According to many patrons, pasta here is the best you can have. Ristorante Hamasaki is often mentioned as a top contender for the best Italian restaurant in Tokyo. Course meals for lunch start from just ¥4,400, and for dinner, the courses start at ¥9,800. For something very special, you can try the omakase (leave it to the chef) course for ¥18,900.

Ristorante Hamasaki is located about an 8-minute walk from Omotesando Station.
