Pizzeria da Aoki Tappost
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
Of all the places we've stumbled across quality pizzerias in Tokyo, this little-trafficked corner of Nerima-ku must be one of the most unexpected. Never mind that it's 10 minutes' walk from Toshimaen Station: Pizzeria da Aoki Tappost is still buzzing with activity when Time Out visits on a weekday evening, only just managing to score a table. Thin-based, salty and lightly charred, the pizzas here could hold their own against many of the top restaurants in the central Tokyo – and they've got prices to match (to whit: ¥1,600 for a margherita at dinner). That aside, there's not much to fault other than the glacial service: we didn't ask to get our two pizzas served 15 minutes apart from each other, but that's how they arrived. Good desserts and coffees sweeten the deal, though.
