Pizza and Nice Scenery Can Be Enjoyed -La Locanda Del Pittore Toya in Toyako-
November 19th, 2015
La Locanda Del Pittore (ラ・ロカンダ・デル・ピットーレ洞爺) is a popular Italian restaurant on a small hill around Lake Toya (洞爺湖) and is a sister restraunt of the famous Italian restaurant "PIZZERIA La locanda del pittore (ピッツェリア ラ・ロカンダ・デル・ピットーレ)" in Niigata. There is a building on the foot of The Windsor Hotels Toya Resort & Spa, and The Windsor Hotels Toya Resort & Spa cooperated with PIZZERIA La locanda del pittore in 2003, and they started a business. There are a gondola lift station for The Windsor Hotels Toya Resort & Spa and Lake Toya Ranch that visitors can get on horses near the building.
A lot of trees are used for the stone building such as the workshop of the craftsman in the Middle Ages, and it has a very warm and welcoming atmosphere. There is a gelato shop called gelateria on the second floor, and there is La Locanda Del Pittore on the third floor.
Even family customers seem to enjoy because the restraunt is large enough. I visited here around 11:30 on weekdays. Because they finished their busy seasons, there were few visitors. I sat at a window seat that Lake Toya could be seen.
I asked a waiter about restaurant's recommendation while reading a menu at once, He replied pittore. But I wanted to eat Marinara Pizza (マリナーラ) and ordered it for one person sized pizza. The price is JPY 2209.
While I was waiting the pizza baked at a firewood kiln, grissini and water were served. I looked over Lake Toya while eating the grissini. It was a nice scenery to all the rave reviews it got.
Approximately 15 minutes later, Marinara Pizza was served. The tomato sauce was spread over on pizza with approximately 5mm in thickness, and it was topped with anchovy or garlic paste and smelled nice.
First I ate a slice of pizza. The pizza were chewy. The tomato sauce went well with salty anchovy. It was tasty!
I used Tabasco on my pizza and ate it afterwards. I prefered a little hotter than standard. I enjoyed the Marinara Pizza.
