Pizzeria da Enzo, The best Pizzeria in Yomitan, Japan, Okinawa-Hai. Contributed by ANDREA WOOD

I found a taste of Italy at Pizzeria da Enzo, Yomitan, Japan, Okinawa-Hai! Ok, I’ve never been to Italy, but my husband lived in Rome for two years and he says it’s the closest tasting pizza to Italy he’s had since he’s lived there. Pizzeria da Enzo is located in Yomitan and overlooks the water. We ate during sunset and it was gorgeous!

There is a bar area, wood burning fireplace, patio for eating outside, and a beautiful lounge and dining experience inside, not to mention very pristine and cute bathrooms. I like places where I eat to have clean bathrooms, it tells me they take pride in their business. You can see in the picture below how they cook the pizzas in the big stone fireplace, with ‘ENZO’ written above the fire opening. They also toss the dough and make the pizza in front of you, something I’m always interested in watching!

Pizzeria da Enzo’s pizzas are the most reasonably priced within the average of any pizzeria and bar back in the states. The average pizza is about 1,700 yen.  We asked for two pizzas, one with 4 cheese with a side of honey for dipping.  You might think honey on pizza?  But let me tell you, it was out of this world!  The other pizza we ate was ham, mushroom, and basil with egg, again it was delicious! The selection is amazing! Everything from prosciutto to eggplant to the fish of the day. Pizzeria da Enzo has a mix of everything pizza, vegetable, and plain cheese. The pizzas are a bit on the smaller size but I don’t know if it’s because I just wanted more, or we Americans are used to eating super-sized portions! Either way, If you love pizza and are craving a taste of Italy then you’ll definitely love Pizzeria da Enzo!

You can call or make reservations online.  My family and I went during the week but we didn’t have a problem getting a table.  It is so good though and I can only imagine as the word gets out and it becomes more popular that I recommend making a reservation for a weekend night.

  1. I live in the apartment complex right next door. A word of advice, be careful where you park when trying to come to this restaurant. It is zoned as “No Parking.” everywhere despite the absence of road signs. Local farmers are fed-up with people unintentionally damaging their crops by parking their cars along the narrow roads that line the sugarcane fields due to severely limited parking at the nearby tourist hotspot of Maeda point, which is the closest public parking lot to ENZO. Many farmers have erected fences and barriers to prevent people from pulling off to the side of the road. Also, local Japanese Police rove these narrow streets at least once or twice a day during peak hours of thoroughfare at Maeda Point.
