Pizzeria La Rossa


Restaurants & Cafés


One of Tokyo's more well-traveled pizzaioli, Hideyuki Maruyama did repeated stints in Italy and worked the ovens at local restaurants including Kagurazaka's Hide Margherita (they changed the name after he left, natch) on his way to opening Pizzeria La Rossa. An old-school shopping street in Musashi-Koyama offers a low-key setting for this agreeable eatery, where the walls are decorated with photos from the owner's travels. The pizzas are reasonable priced, starting at ¥950 for a marinara, and you're getting a lot for your money: Maruyama uses top-notch San Felice flour for his dough. He's particularly adept at incorporating fresh herbs into his creations; while the margherita isn't the best we've tried (a little too soft and doughy, really), we're absolutely smitten by the other pizza we order. The Aroma – a mozzarella base, lightly dusted with parmesan and topped with generous piles of fresh basil, coriander, rosemary, cilantro and thyme – is definitely the one to start with here.
