A brisk 15-minute walk from Nerima Station, Toyotama Villa is an all-new 'community space' created from seven renovated family homes, and houses... an Italian restaurant. The 'upmarket' bit probably refers to the fact they brought in a wood-fired kiln directly from Italy, which churns out proper Napolitan pizzas with their characteristic crisp yet soft base and smoky fragrance. 14 different options are on the menu – from the standard marinara to a prosciutto e rucola bianca version. If you're looking for a luxurious way to spend the afternoon, try their afternoon tea-inspired (and not so Italian) pudding à la mode, a plate filled with a variety of puddings and other sweets.
