Restaurants & Cafés


Sure: compared to some of the flashy new pizzerias that have opened around Tokyo over the past few years, Partenope can feel a teeny bit staid. Certified by the Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana, this long-running Hiroo restaurant keeps its pizzas perfectly round, its toppings nicely balanced, its cornicione chewy and ever-so-slightly charred. There's none of the spontaneity that makes somewhere like Nakameguro's Da Isa so memorable, but for solidly, stolidly good pizza, it's hard to go wrong here. The interior manages to conjure a vaguely mezzogiorno-esque atmosphere without resorting to outright kitsch, and – unlike some other specialist pizzerias – you're still on safe ground when you stray to the other sections of the food menu. First-timers are advised to go at lunchtime, when you can get a choice of pizza or pasta together with a starter and drink for under ¥1,300.
