3.14 Italian Restaurant – Fussa

I recently visited 3.14 Italian Restaurant in Fussa for lunch and dinner.  The restaurant is a short walk from the Seiyu Department Store if you have shopping to do and can get your parking validated.  There are also paid parking lots nearby.  My first visit was for lunch with a friend.  We did not have a reservation but after some google translating we were sat inside the smaller area of the restaurant with just a few small tables near the kitchen.  The menu was in Japanese so we went with the safe lunch set of margherita pizza.  It was only 1100 yen and came with a small salad and a drink.  This was probably my favorite margherita pizza I have had locally, and I’ve tried a lot.  Later in the week we had a last minute couples date night to say goodbye to friends.  We called just 30 minutes ahead for a table for 6 on a Saturday night and were able to get in.  We were seated in the larger dining room this visit.  The dinner menu was much more extensive and many of the options were more family style so we were able to share and sample each others dishes.  The waiter spoke some English and informed us the food would come out at different time intervals which was fine since we were able to share most dishes.  We started with a caprese salad, bruschetta (we never figured out what it was called on the menu but pointed to the table next to us) and a very large salad.  We sampled entree’s of spaghetti and linguine with crab, parmesan risotto and a few other Italian dishes.  We finished the night off with a giant slice of chocolate cake and tiramisu.  All of the food was delicious and reasonably priced and we would definitely go back again!  – Angela Vaillant, July 2018

Goo Italiano – Shibuya

While getting my hair done in Shibuya, my hairdresser recommended a nearby Italian restaurant for lunch after.  Goo Italiano is a cute little Italian restaurant on a corner not far from Shibuya crossing.  I have been twice now for lunch and enjoyed their Paccheri Tomato Sauce dish on both visits.  Their sets range for 1000yen to 1500yen for lunch and include focaccia bread, salad, pasta choice and a drink.  Their iced peach tea is worth a try!    My husband also enjoyed the pasta of the day special.  Their dinner menu has a lot more variety and includes family style meals.  The dinner grand menu includes pizzas, pastas, salads, lasagna, and Italian appetizers.  They also offer carry out.  – Angela Vaillant, April 2018
