0802060069マルゲリータ(モッツァレッラ・バジリコ)。 マリナーラ(ニンニク・オレガノ)。
Margherita(Mozzarella and basil). Marinara(Garlic and oregano). Both are 1575yen.

There are only two kinds of pizza available even at dinner time, but the lack of optons doesn’t matter because the pizzas are just amazingly good. I am happy to just eat the wonderfully soft crust on its own. My friends prefer Margherita so we ordered a second of that but I love Marinara just as much.

On the other hand, from the prices of the appetizers, I just couldn’t believe how small the portions turned out to be. Even though they tasted good but they are still totally overpriced. The pizzas are reasonable in price though.

The espresso(with sugar already added) was recommended by the staff who said that it is “creamy”(without cream or milk added) and people who normally don’t like coffee will like it – it is probably good espresso but it is so disgustingly sweet that I gave up after one sip. They don’t have caffe latte or cappuccino, otherwise I would have asked for a cup of hot milk to dilute the “espresso syrup”.

3 of us shared all the food(we ordered 3 pizzas) plus drinks(about 2 glasses each), the bill was 4000yen per person. I will go back for the delicious pizzas but I will remember not to order too many appetizers. They do pizza lunch too so that is probably a good deal.
Menu: 1, 2.

Testa Matta

Spaghetti with tuna and broccoli in cream sauce, gratin style, 1200yen.
Paprika and mozzarella pizza, 1200yen. Salami and mozzarella pizza, 1200yen.
Pizzas are quite good(much better than the spaghetti). Slightly greasy and salty though. Lunch comes with salad and coffee.


From the 2800yen full course lunch. Pasta is Peperoncino with green chilli. Main dish is oven-grilled chicken. The chicken is not bad while the appetizer and the pasta are just okay. Portion is small.

The quality of food is not that fantastic but the location is great – very near Shibuya station but since it is on the 3rd floor of a building and the entrance is hard to spot, it is never full. The view by the window is great too.
