Was recommended this restaurant by a colleague. Upon entry I was skeptical by the appearance, Don’t be! The staff are very friendly. The menu is simple and a little thrown together but the food is fantastic! I started with crispy calamari, very light and tasty. The aioli was perfect. The petite f...ilet was a little on the small side, my initial thought, but turned out to be perfect and cooked to perfection. The dipping sauce, if you choose to use it, was a nice complement. I ended with the Tiramisu. Again I thought, small portion. The presentation and flavors were great. They add a berry compote on the side, awesome! Totally surprised by the quality. I will definitely return!

“Worst Italian Food ”
We went here on our last evening in Narita and what a shamble it was both in food and service. We sat at the bar counter and ordered both starters and main. Our starter arrived after our main, wish it never arrived it was disgusting. ‘Spanish style shrimps’, all it was prawns in oil, nothing Spani...sh about it. My husband’s pizza was the most anaemic looking pizza ever seen, bland and no taste. I ordered lasagne, sauce was so runny and couldn’t find any trace of minced beef. Then saw a chunk of beef in the middle, it was very off putting. As we were at the bar we could see the food being prepared. Not impressed with the hygiene as the serving staff were preparing some food and touching bread with bare hands and no protective gloves. Very disappointed as the owner is apparently Italian, the food and service has a lot to be desired.

“An Italian gem of a restaurant located on the street leading to the Shinjoji Temple is a great find!”
Although I like Japanese food I was really yearning for a change and was delighted to discover this restaurant specializing in Italian food with a bit of Spanish tapas fusion. Unlike many Italian themed restaurants in Japan which offers boring pizza and pasta, Azzurro 520 has a very creative menu of...fering high quality steaks, chicken, salads pasta artfully prepared. We loved the arugula salad with a dash of lime and vinegar! The chicken piccata was not prepared in the traditional style but delighted us as it was baked perfectly with subtle spices, garlic in a rich butter sauce. The spaghetti tossed in olive oil, garlic and a red chili pepper had a spicy kick! The only disappointment was the grilled vegetable side dish which consisted mostly of a sauteed onion and some eggplant, which was very uninspiring. I would have like to have had some green veggies included. We sat at the bar with a view of the open kitchen and enjoyed watching huge platters of succulent looking rare steak prepared and served on a wooded cutting board as well as tapas with prosciutto ham, marinated artichokes and other delectables go by. If we had another day I would have definitely returned to try something different. Service was friendly and professional. They had a nice wine, beer and cocktail selection. If you have a stopover in Narita, I highly recommend Azzurro 520!
