La Pianta: Best Italian Food in Tokyo for the Price?

Today, I’d like to introduce my favorite Italian restaurant in all of Setagaya; La Pianta in Sakurashinmachi.

La Pianta kitchen is immaculate and the service is excellent

For over 20 years, my family has been going to La Pianta in Sakurashimmachi. I think La Pianta is, by far, one of the best Italian restaurants in town. La Pianta has 5-star atmosphere and delicious food at a 3-star price. I wholeheartedly recommend the lunch specials!

Real Italian style pizza baked in a wood fire oven!

They even have a plan where kids can come on weekend days and have pizza parties!

Today, for lunch, I went to La Pianta with my wife and let me show you the fantastic food and great value we were able to get.

Today we both ordered the ¥945 yen pasta special. The pasta special comes with generous green salad, drinks, all you can eat delicious bread, and a choice of one pasta. My wife choose the clams in white sauce. I ordered the Penne.

Lunch comes with all you can drink tea or hot coffee too!

A large green salad, all you can eat delicious bread, a healthy-sized serving of your choice of pasta and all you can drink tea or coffee for ¥945!? In Tokyo?

I can eat there everyday. Try La Pianta in Sakurashinmachi. You will love it too!

La Pianta is a 4 minute walk from the west exit of Sakurashinmachi station. To get to Sakurashinmachi: Take the Den-en-Toshi local subway line from Shibuya station towards Chuorinkan. 4 stops to Sakurashinmachi. When you get to the station, go out the west exit.
