The third and final pizza place I visited on my spring break trip to Japan was located in the same neighborhood (Nakameguro) as both Seirinkan and Trattoria Pizzeria Il Lupone. Yet it wasn’t somewhere on my list of places to try. I’ve always felt one of the best ways to gauge a local pizza scene is not to hunt down the best place in town, but rather to stroll into a random place and see how it stacks up. I’ve done this in cities such as Rome with little success. And to tell you the truth, most of these experiences don’t make it onto the blog. But my experience in Tokyo was different.

The place at hand is called Trattoria Lungofiume (Meguro, Aobadai, 1−23−3). It’s a no frills cafe-like spot along the bank of a canal that cuts through the neighborhood. While Seirinkan was more of a hidden, too-cool-for school joint, and Il Lupone was an upscale restaurant, this spot was your run of the mill pizza spot. Except that it wasn’t. Their Neapolitan pies were quite delicious. And while not as good as the other two spots, so much better than any other place you could expect to walk into randomly.

You can take out a pie for about $7.00. Or stay and take advantage of their lunch special which features an assortment of pies paired with a house salad for $10-$15. When the weather is nice, grab a seat out front, overlooking the canal. The service was great, they have an all you can drink fresh juice bar (well, more like a table), and the pizza was tasty. In Tokyo, whatever food place I went to, placed so much emphasis on using only the best ingredients. And Trattoria Lungofiume was no exception.

 

About I Dream Of Pizza

Some guys dream about winning the Powerball jackpot, making love to Kate Upton, or scoring the winning touchdown in the Super Bowl. But personally, I spend most of my time dreaming about digging my face into a mouth watering slice of pizza. Fireworks are ignited. Music comes out of nowhere. And just like that, I’ve fallen in love once again. Since 2008, I’ve chronicled my pizza eating adventures in New York City and around the world on I Dream Of Pizza — the web’s most popular blog dedicated entirely to pizza.
