It has just become impossible to enter Venty Due in Shizuoka City without a reservation any more!
It took me a month to be able to take the IT staff of Agrigraph there!

The reasons are simple enough: They serve the best pizzas (Napolitan-style) in the whole Prefecture!
To achieve this, they use a real oven heated with “Nara no ki/Japanese oak” delivered all the way from Tottori Prefecture on the other side of Japan!
It takes two hours to bring the oven to the right temperature of 450 degrees Celsius, but then the pizza will come literally smoking on your plate within a few minutes from the moment you ordered them!

The dough for only thirty pizzas is fermented and leavened twice every day and the ingredients, altough simple, are of the best quality!

For thirsty people Italian beer and wines are available!

They serve only three kinds of pizza.
We had them all of course!
Here we go:

Margherita Pizza!

For a closer look!

Marinara Pizza!

For a closer look!

Bianca Pizza!

For a closer look!
Are you convinced?

if you still have a space to fill, do try one of their light dishes. We had the potato croquettes and cheese puffs assortment!

Just love those cheese puffs!
Simple maybe, but with great quality, great taste and great ingredients! What more can you ask for?

  1. The pizzas look delicious, but I’m not sure if croquettes and cheese puffs are light dishes 😉
    You remind me I have recently discovered my favourite pizzeria is 500 m from my house…


  2. That’s it. I am absolutely coming down from Tokyo over winter break to this place. I’ll order all three and take home two. Love pizza oven baked. Interesting that it’s from Tottori and not brick, either.
    And, 100% non-smoking, as it should be. Notice their ripping success, Japan! Well done!
