Top Italian Restaurants in Tokyo

We tried to disprove the saying that puts Tokyo as best dining city in the world. We failed. Merit for this also goes to those Italian restaurants that could rise above the rest even in Rome or Milan. The attention to detail, striving to perfection and an unrivalled gastronomic acuteness characterised some of the most memorable dining experiences we had during our travels. Plus, if you love Neapolitan-style pizza, you’re in the right place.
