Authentic Italian Napoli Pizza in Yokohama

Pizzeria La casa di Nonno

Finding a credible pizzeria in Japan can sometimes seem impossible, but if you’re in Yokohama, all you need to do is make your way to Bashamichi's Pizzeria La casa di Nonno.

La casa di Nonno is the real deal. It's as authentic as you can get without having to make the trip overseas (the cook actually studied pizza-making at Napoli’s well-known La Spaghettata).

The shop’s is small, but step inside and you’ll feel immediately welcome by its smiling staff of three: one in front of a fire-blazing wood-burning oven, the owner in the kitchen, and the third deftly moving back-and-forth in between. La casa di Nonno's interior is decorated in earthy reds and ambers, with counter seats for seven and two tables for four.

The preparation and presentation of their dishes is outstanding, and they take noteworthy care and attention to create an atmosphere that is both intimate and sociable.

Relish La casa di Nonno's Octopus and Celery Marinade (¥600) or savour their Shrimp Ajillo (Spanish Garlic Shrimp (¥900). Cleanse your palate with a Bashamichi Vegetable Green Salad (¥1000), whose ingredients are not only chemical-free but also come from a local organic LED vegetable garden. And of course make sure to indulge in one of their many mouth-watering pizzas (from ¥1500-¥2000).

You can wash your food down with Japanese or Italian beer, or select a bottle of wine from their amazingly extensive and reasonably priced list.

Pizzeria La casa di Nonno is about to celebrate their second year of fantastic food and drink in Bashamichi. I highly recommend you give them a try. Tell the owner, Kato-san, that Lee sent you!

*La casa di Nonno charges a nominal service fee (¥200-300), which includes the house appetizer.

Address: Naka-ku, Aioi-cho 4-69-4 Kannai Odori Building 1F
