Restaurant Details

Head to this pizzeria nestled at the foot of Mt. Nijo in Nara Prefecture for the true Neopolitan slice. You’ll find owner-chef Hironori Noda tossing and churning beautifully charred, slightly chewy Naples-style pizza using traditional Italian technique with a touch of local flair. For one thing, vegetables for the pizza toppings are harvested from the garden across the restaurant and tended daily by the owner’s mother (there’s even a dedicated blog area for the latest harvest update). For another, the cheeses — which include Buffalo mozzarella and ricotta — are flown in weekly from Italy. His pizza starts with the perfect dough, whose ratio and proofing time are adjusted to the day's weather and temperature to ensure a light, fluffy crust that remains chewy even when cold. After layering the dough with the sauce (Noda never forgets to season the tomato sauce with Sicilian sea salt) and toppings, it’s slid onto the massive wood-fired kiln that reaches an internal temperature of up to 450 degrees. He specifically uses dried broad-leaved tree wood, aged for at least a year, to achieve the perfect char. Magazzino’s menu includes Italian classics that earn it a Michelin Bib Gourmand award, like margherita and quattro formaggi — the latter best enjoyed with a drizzle of Italian acacia honey. Complement the meal with an Italian soda or a glass of wine, or end it with homemade gelato.
