Tonari is our Wafu Italian restaurant. WAFU means Japanese-style, so our menu is a Japanese take on Italian food. It originated in Japan through the love that the Japanese had for Italian food but wanted to incorporate some of their cultural flavors and ingredients to them. We at Daikaya Group and chef & owner, Katsuya Fukushima, are bringing this experience to you here in DC.

Looking for some fun Japanese antipasti bites, one of a kind pasta dishes, or pizza that you won't find anywhere else in the city? Then come join us for dinner, we look forward to having you soon.

    I feel like there aren't a lot of places you can get an unagi or okonomyaki pizza, and both were so good! I've had unagi sushi a lot here in the US and when visiting Japan a few weeks ago, as well as okonomyaki for the first time in Osaka. I know Japanese-Italian fusion is popular in Japan but I feel like it's just not that common here in the US. I wish I could try the okonomyaki pizza again for the first time and I also loved that the pizza was more filling than you'd expect. Will definitely come back to try the pasta!

    We decided to dine outside, which was our mistake. we would have enjoyed the ambiance inside much better. It was noisy and police heavy. Service was lacking. We got our drinks after all of the appetizers. The waiter recommendations missed the mark. Entrees came out all at separate times. We were excited to come back (was our second time) and it missed the mark. I would stick to bar seating only if you had the choice.

    I went to the pop-up Tonari x PastaRamen collab and it was so fantastic. Great food, but the way staff worked together and interacted with our table brought it to a new level. Hugely recommend

    Food was amazing. We had pasta, pizza and dessert. Pizzas are large and a 1/2 size was a great portion for 1 person

    Unique seating, can sit on floor pillow cross legged or let your legs drop into a space below the floor. The lighting is good, not too dark and not at all bright and decor is spot on. The food however was quite meh. We had an assortment. We shared the Broccolini and the Inarizushi. The Broccolini was cooked perfectly and seasoned nicely, tasted just as I make it at home. The Inarizushi was ok. A bit bland and the tofu almost seemed a bit oily. We had the Unagi pizza, a custom pizza of pecorino, shishito peppers, shiitake mushrooms, pickled jalapenos and naturally it comes with the block cheese and sauce, and lastly we ordered the mentaiko pasta. The pizza crusts were very heavy, and the block cheese was excessive and nothing special (unless you love a generic mozarella drowning everything out). Those two factors made the pizza just too too cheezy and like a brick in your stomach. The pasta was also WAY to buttery, just butter butter ..it overwhelmed all the other flavors except for the nori which peeked through a bit. Overall it was a disappointing meal. Overpriced for very heavy butter covered food.
